James Mackin

Experimental // Dundalk, Louth

"Human Condition," the debut solo album by drummer/composer James Mackin (3epkano) draws on a diverse career as a session musician and composer.

The album, due for release in May 2024 blends electronic, cinematic, and rock influences with improvisation. It was recorded and produced by James and mixed by Steve Shannon (Strands).
