LP - Strictly Limited Deluxe Transparent Cloudy Clear Colour Vinyl.
With the release of Svengali Cakes Da Kills adds another landmark to his catalogue and brings the long-running relationship between hip-hop and house music into a new chapter.
Svengali is a cinematic experience, charting a love affair from hookup to breakup, with all of the highs and lows of romance and attraction in between. Always a brutally (and hilariously) unfltered voice, the album sees Cakes bringing a new layer of vulnerability and depth to his writing, charting the vicissitudes of love in and out of the club. Coming on the heels of the high- energy cult- favourite Muvaland Vol. 1 & 2 mixtapes (but recorded before either of them), Svengali dials back the manic, rave-till-dawn energy in favour of beats by producer Sam Katz that offer more subtle moods, as well as a jazz infuence that connects Cakes to the early days of queer culture that bubbled up out of New York jazz clubs and the sonically ambitious jazz lovers who pioneered house music.
