"(New Video)-@jasonmaek & @zaenaworld “Maek Pandamonium Visual Album”"

Chicago’s free music electronic record label Maek has officially debuted their “Maek Pandamonium Visual Album”. This project sets a first in the following three categories:
-The first visual album in electronic music
-The first visual album from an independent record label
-The first visual album produced in Chicago
The project can be described as electronic music meets Image Union crossed into early MTV music video days. It also brings to mind something of a Liquid Television hybrid with it’s clever use of artistic expressions set to a music soundtrack. Unlike the handful of visual albums before it, the “Maek Pandamonium Visual Album” focuses more on storyline and continuity, weaving all 17 videos to depict a singular, abstract storyline about the influence of pop culture. Join Jason Maek & Zaena as they lead you on a journey thru a colorful palette chock full of visual delights. - Get Your Buzz Up

About Jason Maek

Chicago-based emcee Jason Maek is quickly earning a reputation for his hard-hitting and polarizing content. His music gives a refreshing insight on a younger generation that is commonly missed within a genre flooded with materialism and sexism. After working on a PhD in Sociology, he took time to explore the business side of music as a consultant in artist development and branding. In 2011, he founded Maek with his best friend, Tiffany Lee.

Jason Maek’s debut EP Do Epic Sh!t, was an instant success.  The March 2014 release received rave reviews from a multitude of media outlets and music fans across the globe.  His current project, the Maek Pandamonium Visual Album, displays his growth and maturity as a musician and a director. Teaming with labelmate Zaena, Jason is prepared to release the most daring project he has ever created.

About Zaena

Zaena strives to separate herself in an industry polluted with over-sexualized show ponies and one-hit wonders.  Born in February 1988 in Sabha, Libya, Zaena aims to redefine what it means to be a female popstar.  As a young girl, her parents moved to the United States to give her opportunities that were not available in their homeland. Zaena found comfort in music and cites Madonna, Gwen Stefani, and Billie Holiday as her biggest influences. 

Her eclectic taste directly reflects in her latest project, the Maek Pandamonium Visual Album. The collaborative LP with label mate Jason Maek covers a vast spectrum of musical genres and subject matter.  Zaena pushes for originality on every track she records and allows herself the freedom to dare different.
