Jason Maek and Zaena Short Info

Greatness requires a delicate blend of ability, work ethic, and most importantly self-sacrifice. Combining their skills in music production, DJing, singing, and rapping, Jason Maek and Zaena set aside their solo careers to form one of the most uniquely talented duos in electronic music.

Though walking separately, the careers of these two musicians have always been linked. Their EP’s, which they co-wrote together, were released on the same day in March 2014. The Chicago-based emcee quickly earned a reputation for his hard-hitting and polarizing content, while the Libyan born vocalist separated herself in an industry polluted with over-sexualized show ponies and one-hit wonders.

This was just the beginning of their partnership. On October 6, 2014, they released their first collaborative studio album. It set several historical milestones as the first visual album released in electronic music history and the first from an independent label. The Maek Pandamonium Visual Album weaves 17 visually captivating music videos into one cohesive storyline.

“We wanted to do something that allows our fans to experience our music differently and see the vision behind every song,” says Zaena.

On the day of its release over 40 colleges and universities held individual watch parties. The project received over 100,000 streams and 50,000 views within the first few weeks of its release. To cap off this amazing debut, the visual album premiered on the front page of Vevo on November 3, 2014.

Currently, Jason Maek and Zaena are planning a tour for the album. With a live show filled with unmatched energy, dancing pandas, and confetti guns, they are ready to bring Pandamonium to music fans around the world.
