The Idea of Me: Mista Mayday Maxi​-​Single

by Rabbi Darkside



I've been collaborating with Mista Mayday since 2002. He produced half of my solo debut, "Building the Better Bomb," and was one of the backbone producers of "Prospect Avenue." He hit me with the pack of remixes and, not being able to pick one, decided to drop all three in the vintage style of the classic maxi-single. Included here, along with the instrumentals, is a bonus track alternate remix version of "Sacred Space" produced by Math Prime, Mista Mayday's 12 year old son. RESPECT ESP COLLECTIVE 2020!

Please enjoy and pay what you can to support. All proceeds from sales of this maxi-single will be donated to Wind of the Spirit (local New Jersey grassroots organization working with immigrant communities to organize and strengthen leadership through the tradition of hospitality).
