New Jersey rapper Cakes Da Killa burst onto the scene in 2011 armed with a clear set of ideals and an eye on bringing forward thinking rap music to the masses. Cut to 2015 – the project continues to evolve and help to break new ground for the scene whilst still holding a consistent message and presenting an ear for innovative new sounds with each entry committed to tape. Our featured track today ‘Serve It Up’ was produced by Sydney’s own Moonbase Commander and it packs some serious punch. Rounded percussion and sharp synths ascend and descend in unison, creating tension and and a pulsing backdrop for Cakes’ unique flow. It’s direct, considered and delivered with a cutting accuracy. Crucial sounds indeed!
