A great deal of effort was made trying to create something of high quality on all fronts and most importantly to convey his true personality on wax. To inspire people to break through what it is that’s holding them back from achieving their goals and to take control of their lives. Hence the album title Take Control.
Through the connections at Nimbus, Shai Mate had the privilege of working with such legendary producers as DJ Kemo, Garth Richardson, Chin Injeti, and Rob The Viking of Swollen Members. Take Control went into production and writing in December of 2012. The songs were all written and a demo was recorded by September 2013. Between September 2013 and March 2014 the album went through rigorous post production stages. Take Control was mastered near the end of March 2014 by Brock Macfarlane. Not only was Shai responsibly for the vast majority of the Mixing and post production, he also designed and painted the original artwork for the album cover.
The vastly talented young artist is planning a going away party at Fortune Sound Club scheduled for May the 16th before he heads to Los Angelos for the summer to pursue music and shoot music videos. Look out for Shai Mate on your local Vancouver radio stations and TV stations.
