Sam Smith - Lay Me Down (Maya Jane Coles Remix) [Capitol]

Taking on the flawless, world-renowned vocals of Grammy-winning singer Sam Smith is no small feat, but Maya Jane Coles proves she’s the one for the job with her deep house take on Smith’s Lay Me Down.

With phenomenal remixes of everyone from The XX to Ella Fitzgerald and an impressive collection of original work, Coles has solidified her veteran status in the deep house and techno scene. She shows off her diverse production talent in her latest, transforming Smith’s emotive ballad into a sexy, sophisticated dance track with a hypnotic beat and smooth bass. Smith’s vocals are layered among looming, atmospheric synths, giving the track an edgy, late-night feel.

The remix is featured on the Lay Me Down EP alongside spins from Pomo, Woolford, and Todd Edwards. The EP’s US release date is still TBD, but check back for updates.
