Irish future-popster and ‘how do you type that again?’ aficionado Æ MAK has announced a brand new EP, ‘Class Exercises’.
The three-track release is described as “the soundtrack to the lost house parties of 2020-2021”, which means if you threw or attended any house parties during that time period, you’re very naughty and are not permitted to listen. That’ll show you.
Æ MAK says, “I did a month long online Ableton production course with She Knows Tech in July. Did it with a bunch of kick ass women from all over the world and it was very empowering. Never had I self-produced before last summer so this is a new freedom.”
Which is bloody fantastic, isn’t it?
New track ‘Jamie’ is inspired by none other than Jamie XX. “I made the full song during the production course,” she explains. “We’d pick tracks that inspire us and one of mine was a Jamie xx song. So, I named it after him and wrote about our fantasy love affair while I’m making tunes down in my dungeon.”
Honestly, we’ve buried the dungeon news in this story. Æ MAK has a song dungeon and she wants to lock Jamie xx in it. That should have been what we led with, really.
While we deal with that revelation, you can check out ‘Jamie’ below.
