On last year's breakthrough Comfort, London house wunderkind Maya Jane Coles proved herself an impressive singer-songwriter. But she remains a DJ first and foremost. Where her superb 2012 volume of DJ-Kicks glimmered nonstop, Coles' new set, for the London superclub Fabric's custom mix series, showcases hard, dark and luxuriant tracks like Dense and Pika's remix of Paul Woolford's 2006 staple "Erotic Discourse" and NT89's bubbling "Purple Garden." Despite their unwieldy credits, Dapayk and Padberg's "Close Up (Exercise One Remix)" and DJ Yellow and Flowers and Sea Creatures' "No One Gets Left Behind" should appeal to anyone drawn to Coles by the singing.

    “Hungry Like the Wolf”

    Duran Duran | 1982

    This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
