Shaping up: Micachu teams up with Brother May for ‘May And Meeks’ EP

Micachu teams up with Brother May for ‘May And Meeks’ EP

The new project with her longtime friend and collaborator is out now.

Does Micachu ever sleep?! The Shapes frontwoman and hugely prolific producer has only gone and released a new EP today, with her long-time musical collaborator the East London MC Brother May.

The pair first met years ago, with Brother May featuring on Micachu’s mixtape ‘Filthy Friends’ in 2009. She brings scratchily, warping beats to the table, while Brother May tells the story of their friendship. “Meeks is real shit,” he says on ‘Born Winners’. “I like Mica, who has got the hard beats,” he says elsewhere on ‘Rot Away’. Quite right too.

Their EP ‘May and Meeks’ is out now on the new label imprint Curl Recordings. Listen to the whole thing below.
