Press Release :
MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY! believe the hype, with a murderous live show and recent gems featuring Cee-lo Green (#1 charting Gnarls Barkley), Devin the Dude, Killa Kela (Europe’s #1 beat boxer) and DJ Craze (6x World Battle Champion) it’s easy to see why ¡MAYDAY! is fast moving into the popular consciousness. They’ve shared the stage with The Roots, Method Man, Red Man, Mos Def, MF Doom, De La Soul and too many others to list. They fit right in, but their sound is different… it’s hard hitting, organic future brand of music is posted up somewhere between rock and a hard place, strangely familiar, but brand new.
¡MAYDAY! is a two man band consisting of Plex Luthor (producer/keyboardist) with work under the belt for Algorithm, Ecko multi-media, Discovery Channel and various Adult Swim spots) and MC Bernbiz (Miami’s hometown hero). In 2004 they released “Quicksand” which became a local classic and caught the attention of up and coming record label, SouthBeat Records, home to platinum producer Jim Jonsin (produced with Jamie Foxx, Pitbull, Trick Daddy). They were offered a recording deal soon after. In early 2006 they released their first commercial vinyl, “Angles”, distributed by Counterflow Distribution.
¡MAYDAY! just recently shot a video for their first single “Groundhog Day” featuring Cee-lo Green (Gnarls Barkley / Goodie Mob) and the legendary DJ Craze. Within two days of premiering the video on youtube.com, the video achieved over 2 million views. Media giants such as the New York Times, ABC World News Tonight, NBC 6 Evening News and Inside Edition, were the first among many to cover this breakout story. They are currently busy on the road as part of the Storm Tour, a 45 date nationwide tour accompanied by Aceyalone, Wrekonize, Ugly Duckling, Diverse and The Procussions. Their self-titled debut album “¡MAYDAY!” is slated for release September 26, 2006, and their new single “Groundhog Day” f/ Cee-Lo and DJ Craze is just beginning to catch the airwaves.
