Toronto-based recording artist and songwriter Mickey May recently released his latest project, 2099.
The EP is described as “a memoir of his personal experiences and struggles in life and love,” and is available now on all major digital streaming outlets.
“May describes his relationships with others while introspectively reflecting on various emotional situations.”
2099 starts off with cool melodies and Latin overtones and slowly segues into a soft ambiance that provides a wide range of sound. May’s dynamic EP ends with the smooth, jazzy, and vulnerable outro featured in “Growing Pains,” further emphasizing that 2099 is a wonderfully complex EP that hones in on a number of genuine experiences.

Eloquently fusing together the best elements of R&B, pop, and hip-hop, Mickey May creates a unique and refined listening experience. Growing up, Mickey fell in love with the likes of Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder, two highly influential artists from whom he would draw his inspiration.
By his early teens, he developed an affinity for Frank Ocean and Kanye West, and he began blending together traces of rock, jazz, and rap, further displaying his diverse musical palette.
After he began dropping tracks in early 2018, Mickey’s newfound passion for music production galvanized him to develop a stellar work ethic. In December 2018, Mickey released his debut project, a three track EP titled Open Late. Songs like “Gunner,” off of the project showcase his ability to create effortless and memorable melodies.
Through his unparalleled drive, Mickey May is quickly gaining a reputation for his profound artistry. Surpassing 50,000 plays on Spotify in just the first two months of its release, his 2019 track release “Ebony” is his most streamed song to date.
May’s highly anticipated new 8-track EP, 2099, which dropped in May, further demonstrates his creative ingenuity. An intensely dynamic personal project, 2099 portrays Mickey’s complex spectrum of thought and emotion replete with fresh, original, and forward-thinking productions. This is just the beginning for the compelling and prodigal Mickey May.
