ShayGray - Mazal Tov

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Tiago
Album:
Hipster Hype EP

Even though the Jewish holiday of Passover has come to an end for 2014, you can still wish Booth newcomer, and newest signee to Dim Mak Records, ShayGray, “Mazal Tov!” On his latest single, titled after the Yiddish expression for “Congratulations,” it sounds like Shay woke up after a Hangover kind of night with a wedding ring and post party excuses, then went straight to the studio to record. Great stories ensue. The Los Angeles emcee by way of Tel Aviv strings multiple rhymes together, simulating the blur of a night that was spent killing off as many of his brain cells as possible. (Sounds like my kind of party.) With its robotic melody, Tiago‘s production work sounds like a locked bonus round in Tetris, adding a sense of urgency to the headliner’s frenetic flow. The festivities continue on ShayGray’s upcoming EP, Hipster Hype, due out May 27.
