The XX - Fiction (Maya Jane Coles Remix)

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Just in time for her much anticipated debut album, "Comfort", Maya Jane Coles delivers a solid remix of The XX's song, "Fiction." It has been about nine months since The XX released their  hit experimental pop album, "Coexist" and just last week the video for Fiction was released. The slow, atmospheric track about a breakup or impending breakup was a perfect match with Maya's ambient, deep house style. The UK counterparts are masters of the minimalistic style and Maya's rendition of the track mixes her minimalist style without completely veering away from what The XX was going for when they originally produced the track. The XX just wrapped up a phenomenal weekend of music in NYC at the Governors Ball. They are slated to play at the Bonnaroo this weekend before embarking on a worldwide tour that wraps up in September. Maya is pretty busy herself with her debut album set to release in a few weeks. This UK superstar lovechild is definitely worth a listen to on one of those chilled out summer nights.
