Mapei Drops EP for “Don’t Wait” Featuring Remixes From Kingdom, Giraffage

For just a little over the past five months, one of your favorite blogger, indie tastemaker or underground bass music-friendly DJs favorite songs has been Swedish ingenue Mapei’s baile funk-meets-indie pop single “Don’t Wait.” Humorously enough, there was scant video footage that was available of the singer, as the slow burn of the oft-remixed single reached a fever pitch at a grand total of 2.5 million streams and a top position on Hype Machine. Now, in conjunction with the release of a remix EP for the single (featuring Kingdom, Chance the Rapper, Giraffage, Benny Blanco, and an acoustic version), the Dori Oskwitz (Jack White, Passion Pit, Cee Lo)-directed video clip presents us with Mapei, now our favorite, massively curly-haired free-spirit. In the clip, she’s clearly enjoying some quality bae hangs with her male co-star, possibly celebrating her forthcoming debut LP expected this summer.
