Elaine Mai is giving her new four-track EP away for free from today, citing musical progression as one of the reasons she wants more people to hear and download it. Mai’s music has become more dance-orientated and has featured more electronic production (as has her remix work) in recent times and you can hear that progression in the four tracks below, including previously-shared track ‘EDC’.
“I’m really excited to be finally getting this EP out there. It’s been in the works for quite a while and I’m delighted to be able to share it with you all. This time around, I’ve decided to give away the EP for free and there’s a few reasons for that.
Firstly, I am so lucky to have been able to work with some extremely talented and generous friends while making this EP so it didn’t cost me a fortune to make. Secondly, my music has changed considerably since my first EP so I would like as many people to hear it as possible. So please… have a listen, download if you like and share it around. I would only ask one thing of you if you do. Go and check out another artist, give them a listen and maybe a download. There is a such wealth of talent out there, and making music and getting it to the people you want to listen to it does not come cheap. Every penny makes a huge difference to the artist and allows us to keep doing what we’re doing.
