¡Mayday! Inks Deal With Tech N9ne’s Strange Music Imprint

MaydayFlorida-bred hip-hop group, ¡Mayday!, announced some big news this week, when their camp revealed that have inked a deal with rising indie label, Strange Music, headed by Kansas City’s Tech N9ne.

When the members of !Mayday! got the news that they are officially Strange’s newest act, they quickly broke out the ceremonial bottle of Flor de Caña rum that they tap “every time something cool happens to this band.”

“The timing couldn’t be any better,” said Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin. “Tech N9ne is going to go out on the ‘All 6’s and 7’s Tour.’ This will be the largest tour we’ve ever put together: 82 shows in 85 days. The first 14 shows are in Canada, the rest are in the US. ¡Mayday! will be joining Tech on that tour in all the US dates.”

With their intriguing grasp of hip-hop, rock and electronic music, ¡Mayday! are a cosmopolitan musical unit. They instantly grabbed Tech’s attention upon listening to them.

“When I first listened to ¡Mayday! I was like damn, this sh** is rolling,” Tech exclaimed.

Former mtvU Freshmen Five picks, ¡Mayday! have recorded with the likes of Devin the Dude, Lil Wayne, Cee-Lo; shared stages with Daft Punk, Red and Method Man, and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus; and have been heard on the TV shows Entourage and Lincoln Heights.

The crew — Wrekonize and Bernz (vocals), Plex Luthor (guitar/keys/production), Gianni Cash (bass/keys), L.T. Hopkins (drums) and Nonymous (percussion) — broke big when their track “Groundhog Day” featuring Cee-Lo Green received over two million YouTube views within two days, setting a record without any MTV rotation.

That self-started success makes ¡Mayday! a perfect fit for the independent hustle of Strange Music.

“There is no better set-up for the introduction of ¡Mayday! signing to Strange then putting them right into our system,” said O’Guin. “Welcome, ¡Mayday! Get ready to go!”

As their new track “Tango In Tunisia” lights up the hip-hop blogs, ¡Mayday! joins Strange Music family members Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Big Scoob, Stevie Stone and Jay Rock on Tech N9ne’s “All 6’s and 7’s Tour,” beginning in May.
