September 8th, 2016 – (Burbank, CA) – Atlanta hip-hop artist Daye Jack releases a new single, “Deep End,” today via all digital platforms. Zane Lowe will premiere the song this morning on his Beats 1 show at 11 am PST.
Produced by MAG, “Deep End” is featured on Daye’s upcoming EP, Surf the Web, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records on September 23rd. The seven-song EP is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of “Deep End,” and the previously released tracks “Raw” and “Finish Line.”
Born in Nigeria, raised in the burbs of Atlanta, inspired by his old man and Steve Jobs to program computers, and downright deadly on the microphone, rapper, singer, and artist Daye Jack really made the most of his first 20 years. After relocating from Nigeria to Atlanta at the age of six, he split his time between playing soccer, slinging computer code, singing in choir, and listening to the likes of Eminem, OutKast, and 50 Cent. Achieving a Computer Science scholarship to NYU, Daye traded the Big Peach for the Big Apple. During his freshmen year, he found inspiration in both the creative enclave of his classmates and the burgeoning movement of artists such as Chance the Rapper, Joey Bada$$, and Mac Miller.
In 2014, he cooked uphis breakout mixtape Hello World during a winter break and uploaded it to the internet. Off the strength of the project, he signed his publishing to GRAMMY® Award-winning super producer Max Martin [Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake] and inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records-personally scouted by the legendary Mike Elizondo [Dr. Dre, Eminem]. Releasing 2015’s Soul Glitch EP, he drummed up kudos and looks from Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork, XXL, andComplex who touted him among “25 New Rappers to Watch Out For.” Simultaneously, he collaborated with everyone from Killer Mike (“Hands Up”) to Tori Kelly (“Expensive”) and Ariana Grande (“Sometimes”) and joined packed tours alongside headliners as diverse as Lukas Graham and Pell. Along the way, Daye worked on his next evolution, 2016’s Surf The Web EP and his forthcoming full-length No Data in Los Angeles. By being himself, Daye is about to make a lasting impression on hip-hop and pop culture at large.
