mp3: Ra Cailum- Mapzzz EP

Ra Cailum’s last EP was the stunning, sleeper-hit ‘Finding My Way’ EP which was one of my favorites from last year.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I saw that Ra Cailum dropped a new 3-track EP with Oakland-based Mapzzz.  On the release, Ra Cailum fully embraces the bass-heavy, footwork vibe that he’s been experimenting with on some of the singles he’s dropped.  The three tracks don’t rely heavily on vocal samples as Ra Cailum lets his incredible beat-work take center stage.  So many producers these days are constructing tracks with warped Aaliyah or Beyonce samples (not saying it’s such a bad thing) so it’s refreshing to hear Ra Cailum’s more stripped-down approach to his beat making.  Stream the EP below and download here
