British-Japanese, producer/DJ Maya Jane Coles has stepped up to remix Australian indie-electronic quintet Gold Fields’ track ‘Cocoon’ set for release on the 21st June via Haven Sounds. The original track is lifted from Gold Field’s recently released album, Dalawa. Maya Jane Coles needs no introduction. She has recently done an official remix for Dua Lipa’s ‘Swansong’ with a string of others in her wake including Depeche Mode (Columbia Records), Bonobo (Ninja Tune), The xx (Young Turks), Maceo Plex (Cross Town Rebels), Florence & The Machine (Island Records), Amy Winehouse, and Tricky. Her track ‘What They Say’ was sampled in the Nicki Minaj song ‘Truffle Butter’, a collaborative track with Drake and Lil Wayne, and she produced Fabric 75, the 75th edition of London nightclub Fabric’s monthly compilation album.
Maya Jane Coles take on ‘Cocoon’ adds an immediate sense of urgency to the original track. A weighted remix, she keeps things neat and coherent, while casting a shadow over the track – moving it from a light shimmering indie offering to a thrilling night-time club journey. Electronic embellishments, a quickened tempo and a thumping beat, she effortlessly turns ‘Cocoon’ into a cinematic techno collage.
Maya Jane Coles has commented on her remix, “Really enjoyed working on this track! It turned into something very different to everything else I’ve done in the remix department, but super happy with the outcome.”
