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.
