Maya Jane Coles – “Burning Bright” featuring Kim Ann Foxman [Official Video]


The incredible Maya Jane Coles teams with Kim Ann Foxman, formerly of Hercules and Love Affair for the chilled yet vibrant deep-house cut, “Burning Bright.”

“Burning Bright” is taken from Coles stunning debut, Comfort. The album includes collaborations with Karin Park, Tricky, Alpine’s Catherine Pockson and electropop royalty, Miss Kittin. Comfort is easily one of my top contenders for record of the year. So if you haven’t yet listen to the record now is the time!

Jolie Cherie – “DJ Wake Up” [Hot New Tune!]


Loving this fresh disco tune from electropop Parisian trio, Jolie Cherie comprised of Etienne de Champfleury, producer Samir Allichethere and female vocalist, Melina Duval.

“DJ Wake Up” is the first full english song the band has recorded with Opus Label. The track has some great 90s Dance and Freestyle references with a bit of Modjo and Blondie vibes. In fact, if Modjo and Debbie Harry made a record together this would be it.

Take a listen and let this irresistible dancefloor summer-tune be the soundtrack of your weekend!

“DJ Wake Up” arrives August 13th.
