Great album here from Banco de Gaia, aka Toby Marks, who went on to do plenty of other interesting work. Maya, Toby Marks' first full-length offering as Banco de Gaia, bears all the unfortunate hallmarks of mid-90s techno, back when ambient dub roamed the earth. Marks added his voice to the renaissance of ethnic-sample techno with "Heliopolis," which uses the same Dead Can Dance riff as the Future Sound of London's classic "Papua New Guinea," but the overall effort seems dated.

Maya offers the strongest recollection of acid house of anything in his discography, with light, airy breakbeats and endlessly pleasant pianos rippling against a large backdrop of Asian influences.
