When you consider how great ¡MAYDAY! is at constantly producing great material, you have to consider what goes on in the lab that lends to their prolific career.
In This DJ Booth article we get an insight into the ¡MAYDAY! writing process, as well as a perspective of tour life – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Wrek on the ¡MAYDAY! writing process:
“We usually have the beats first, but Bernz will write down a ton of ideas before we get in the studio. I don’t do that as much, but most of the time it’s beats first. We’re hip-hop kids, we don’t sit and write the lyrics and the music at the same time. We are plugging away making beats and have a stash of beats then flipping through those. Every ¡MAYDAY! album since I’ve joined I’ve tried to do at least one track and Bernz has been from the start. He wasn’t pushing buttons and all that, but overseeing and stuff. When Plex, the original producer, had to step back, we knew we had to step up, and now we are passing it around a little bit more. In a perfect world it will get to the point where all four of us active in the group will contribute to the beat stash. I consider us to be more active now than we’ve ever been.”
