Maxinne chats about releasing her ‘Red Alert’ Album with Toolroom Records
Toolroom’s leading Lady Maxinne is set to return to the label with her long-awaited and much-anticipated debut studio album, ‘Red Alert’.
Following on from her hugely successful collaboration with Lauren L’aimant – ‘Tell Me Something’ which dropped in March earlier this year. The record has hit over 2M streams on Spotify alone so far, being added to over 100 Spotify playlists whilst maintaining a reach of over 9.6M people in total. An incredible start to the year for Maxinne and a long time in the making, as with the release of ‘Tell Me Something’ this was the first taste of her emotive musical direction and sound which is evident throughout ‘Red Alert’.
Going from strength to strength, her debut studio album ‘Red Alert’, named after Maxinne’s empowering and uplifting music, it is not only an album name but a vision for the future with Maxinne’s plans to build it into a brand, hosting club nights, radio shows and more. Inspired from her journey so far, from starting out to becoming an international performing artist, ‘Red Alert’ is the culmination of Maxinne’s career thus far.
Collaborating with other artists, producers and singers who she has built great relationships with over the years, the album enlists some amazing vocalists such as Lauren L’aimant, Moya, Hayla, Cami Jones, Marck Jamz, Flipside and DJ Rae who make appearances throughout the album. There are also some high-profile collaborations from Gene Farris & Mark Knight who, bring their knowledge, experience, and maturity to the album.
