Mapei - Don't Wait

Feels Like: M.I.A, Imogen Heap, Sanitgold

Mapei, the Swedish-American originally out of Providence, has a sound that intensely catchy, yet very difficult to describe. That's all part of the intent though. With her music, Mapei is "looking to create a new way of doing soul", the artist states. The most accurate description I can give of her sound is a completely equivalent mix of Imogen Heap and Santigold. Mapei's music mixes her soulful vocal ability with some new generation electronic production. In any case, this musical exploration has genuinely caught my attention, and I love sharing. Sink your teeth into "Don't Wait" and stay posted for more as she works towards the release of her new album next year.
