Mafia B links up with On Smash to drop visuals for ‘What You Came For’
New York artist and producer Mafia B has had a busy 2021 so far.
The up-tempo banger is a new sound for Mafia B, who started out as a techno and house producer and shows his range for creating and collaborating across different genres.
We had the chance to speak to Mafia B a couple of months ago and asked him about how he linked up with On Smash. He said:
“WHAT YOU CAME FOR, FEATURING ON SMASH, WAS 100% SPONTANEOUS. I JUST SO HAPPENED TO BE IN THE STUDIO HANGING OUT WITH J.LEON, WHO IS AN ENGINEER BASED IN NYC, AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW, ON SMASH STOPPED BY TO HANG. I SHOWED HIM A FEW OF MY TRACKS TO SEE IF HE WANTED TO TAKE A SHOT AT FREESTYLING. HE LIKED THE INSTRUMENTALS OF ONE OF THE TRACKS, WE HAD J.LOEN RECORD HIM, THEN I TOOK THE VOCALS HOME TO PROCESS THEM. THE REST WAS HISTORY. SOMETIMES THE THINGS THAT ARE UNPLANNED HAVE THE BEST OUTCOME.”– Mafia B
As for the music video directed by Andy-Lincoln Estonia, the vibes are reminiscent of Mafia B’s underground music background as the intensity from On Smash brings the track to life.
