Following his Classic Music Company debut ‘Don Dada’, Cakes Da Killa returns to the imprint to release the ‘Muvaland’ EP, a snapping, playful and dancefloor-ready selection of hip house produced in collaboration with NYC producer Proper Villains. This four-track EP (plus two interludes) showcases Cakes’ effortless flow and debonair lyricism at its finest, as Proper Villains’ impeccable production provides the perfect backdrop. Cakes opens the release with a brief intro, imitating a phone call from a friend, where they question ‘Where You @?’, seamlessly transitioning into the first full-length track ‘In Da House’. Setting the tone for the EP, Cakes illustrates his ability as an adept storyteller, as ‘In Da House’ acts as a purposeful, captivating response to the intro.
His triumphant Classic debut ‘Don Dada’ follows, before ‘Intermission’ forms a short but impactful interlude, playfully dubbed as “a word from our sponsors”. The second half of the EP opens with ‘ICU’, as Cakes and Proper Villains team up with acclaimed singer-songwriter Nomi Ruiz, her blissful vocal bringing a necessary dose of soul to the EP. Finally the title track closes out the release, a funk-fuelled, dancefloor-ready cut that demonstrates Cakes’ innate ability to captivate listeners, with his unapologetic and infectious artistic expression.
