New York MC Cakes da Killa has announced a new EP. It’s called Muvaland, and it arrives November 13 via Classic Music Company. The Proper Villains–produced record includes recently-released single “Don Dada.” Watch the music video for the track, starring Bidi, below.
Of his debut EP on Classic Music Company, Cakes da Killa said in a press release:
Going with Classic was a no brainer. I’ve always dabbled with elements of house in my music, as both a fan and student of the genre, so when I decided to put out a full-on house EP I knew it had to be done right. The Muvaland EP came about during the first weeks of quarantine. There was so much bullshit going on in the world and Proper Villains was sitting on these beats that took me to a place I needed to go to.
Proper Villains added:
I’ve been trying to get Cakes to spit over a four to the floor instrumental for... forever. When the quarantine hit, we were both looking for a cool project. He came over and we went through about 100 of my instrumentals…. “Don Dada” was the last thing I played him, it wasn’t even a full song, just a 30 second loop I had made the night before as a goof. There’s a sound a rapper makes when he hears a beat he likes and Cakes is sort of like a kid opening a present on Christmas day, “Oooh.” When I hear the “Oooh,” I knew we were in business. I made him a couple of more instrumentals and he came through and recorded the whole EP in an afternoon…. The whole thing came together freakishly fast for two self-described perfectionists.
