Press Play: ¡Mayday! and Murs

todayJuly 9, 2014


Collaborations in hip hop happen frequently and are often a product of management decisions that produce a mediocre sound. However, the new collaboration between ¡Mayday! and Murs, titled ¡Mursday!, has the potential to convert new listeners to the genre. In addition, the spirit of this release could rekindle the love for hip hop that veteran listeners had from the beginning. ¡Mayday! is on the rise to be one of the most exciting hip hop bands to watch and the proven skills from rapper Murs are the perfect concoction for success.

Sonically, this album is a mix of old, new, and innovative sounds. For example, the tandem and gang vocals have a definite classic Beastie Boys vibe. The rotation from one artist to another is effortlessly on point and done with ease which gives you that Jurassic 5 taste. The instrumentals bring a mix of soul, dance, and raw hip hop sounds that are both familiar and brand new at the same time. This album is a perfect example of when a collective comes together for the sake of making good music. You can tell these guys had a great time making the album and executed the plan in a way that only they could.
