Her EP will be produced by 4hero’s Marc Mac. The list of people she’s worked with is impressive. I’ve posted about Dezaray in the past and actually have dope interview I’ve done with her in 2010 that’s on ice, still relevant, too, as it it’s about her life and less about the music.
I might break that out one day. When she makes a track that hits me, it hits me.

Single from Dezaray Dawn’s DEEP EP (produced by Marc Mac). Release date on Bandcamp and all other digital outlets May 31st.
