Producer, singer, songwriter and performer based in Dublin.

It’s all about progression. Elaine Mai, from her early start as a solo artist, crafting haunting melodies layered over harmonies, beats and acoustic guitar, has changed. Evolved, you might say. Since the release of her debut EP, Dots, in 2012, there has been a steady, perceptible shift in the style of her live shows. While there is still the same beautiful songs, there is a new focus on the beats and the dancefloor, moving away from the acoustic to the electronic, yet maintaining that same beautiful attention to the melody that has made her stand out as a performer. The new Dots Remixes EP is indicative of this, a hint at the new direction on the forthcoming second EP proper available now on Soundcloud for free download.

Elaine has also been developing her skills as a remixer; her latest work, a skilled reworking of Somebody Else by Cat Dowling, is a beautiful take on the track, and sits comfortably beside her stunning reworking of Chameleon Life by Daithi, which came third in Nialler9’s Reader’s polls remixes of the year.

Exciting times ahead.
