We were first introduced to the Las Vegas singer and songwriter, Arima Ederra, when she released her smooth single, "Questions" featuring rapper Blu. Arima has officially debuted her musical talents with an impressive body of work entitled, Earth To Arima. The little over 30 minute EP features producers like Bhonstro, Dead702, WrightTrax, Al B Smoov, Sol X, and Nabeyin. Arima also teams up with emcees from her hometown like Sham and GIBBY, all of which provide a unique rawness and originality to her sound.
The overall vibe of Arima's freshman project is very chill. It has the laid back feel of L.A. written throughout. The lyrics are smart and the production is flawless. It's clear after listening to only a few minutes of Earth to Arima, that she endeavored to take us on a journey through her creative thoughts and inspirations. Her influences are guided by R&B, Hip-Hop and Soul music. The ending result is a collection of melodic and soulful music that brings its listeners back to earth. Arima's debut EP is truly a timeless project.
Check out the 10 track EP for yourself below. We're sure you'll be hearing more from the songstress in 2013.
