I am very happy to announce the release later this month of the 20th anniversary special edition of Maya.
The original was released on Monday 28th February 1994 by Planet Dog Records on both CD and double 12’’, with a limited edition vinyl set that came with an extra 12’’. The album reached No.1 in the Independent Album charts and was nominated for that year’s Mercury Music Prize.
To mark the anniversary, I have put together a triple CD set that features the original album plus two extra discs: one features alternative unreleased mixes of almost every track of the album, including the original full 22 minute mix of Shanti, while the other contains a bevy of remixes, including a brand new version of Mafichi Arabi by Temple Hedz.
I have printed only 1500 copies, with each copy numbered, and once this batch are sold, I will not print any more, as I would like to keep this as something special. To that end I am also not making the album available online as a download, nor will it be appearing on any streaming sites.
The collection is available to pre-order now from Bandcamp
, and I will sign all copies ordered before the official release on February 28th. If you have any dedications, please let me know when pre-ordering, but if possible keep them short as I can’t write too much!
To celebrate the release, I am hosting a night at the local King Arthurs Hall in Glastonbury on Saturday 1st March, where myself and Dr Trippy will be playing live and Andy Guthrie will be DJing. Two weeks later I am in London supporting The Orb at Electric Brixton.
