She was at the front all night, and we were chatting and waving. She came on her own to Lost and Found, and it just blew my mind. That makes me so chuffed. Annie Mac Presents is now AMP, and MacManus has built a mostly-female team around her of like-minded, detail-orientated, mission-focussed people, deeply invested in both the current AMP projects, and future plans.
Annie, can you just DM that person? She is a low key person, yet her presence, whether she intends it to be or not, is commanding. She is essentially famous, but almost chronically down to earth, and struggles to describe, characterise or define herself or remember details about her life.

Her upcoming podcast series, Finding Annie, recruits friends and family to fill in the gaps, information that needs to be crowdsourced thanks to - what she freely admits is - her terrible memory. There is a general respect for her graft, her discerning nature, and her authenticity in an industry where people often speak like press releases or chase fame.

She curated a stage at Ultra in Miami, and a residency at Amnesia in Ibiza. DJing with a massive fucking pregnant belly is kind of terrifying but exhilarating at the same time. If an alien walked up to her, how would she describe herself?
I was doing three jobs. I was skint. Time has become more valuable than anything. I had five years of no sleep and just holding it together. Behind her, the DJ booth was cluttered with other DJs, friends, and members of her team. One friend pointed out how MacManus always seems to dance off-beat while DJing. That night, MacManus was especially on form. Annie fucking Mac!
And when the tune kicked in, she turned to her friends dancing in the booth behind her, and jumped towards them, grinning and euphoric. Una Mullally.
