The Mixed-Tape | “the perfect encapsulation of Æ Mak” Æ Mak – Intro; Release Yourself

In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape, we turn our attention to ‘Intro; Release Yourself’ by Æ MAK.

A slow-burner that moves to an abstract beat, ‘Intro; Release Yourself’ is the perfect encapsulation of Æ Mak. Set to a vivid backdrop of pops and clicks that punctuate each other in a building call and response, Æ Mak’s precise vocal dictates the motion and intensity of the track.

Æ Mak’s art-pop sound is one of complete individuality. Showcased not only in the music of ‘Intro; Release Yourself’ by also the accompanying video that concentrates on the physical aspect of expression with contorted sudden stutters of movement, mirroring the track itself.
