Mala Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

Show page list »


Mirrors is the result of South London’s Mala taking an extended stay in Peru, soaking up the crucial rhythms of the local music. He incorporates recordings of flutes, tap-dancers and percussion into his electronic bass music, successfully giving equal respect and weight to both traditions: none of the patronising ...view item »

Changes (Distance Remix) / Miracles (Commodo Remix)

Got some white label 180g vinyl pressure here on Deep Medi Musik courtesy of Distance and Commodo reworking a pair of Mala staples. First up, Distance tackles Changes, the second remix of this tune I ...view item »

Changes (James Blake Harmonimix)

Here’s an exciting record which we probably won’t have on our shelves for very long - it’s a one-sided white label where two very different modern bass music icons meet head-to-head as James Blake mixes Mala’s ‘Changes’ - a mix which appare...view item »

Noches Suenos (Mala & Simbad Super Dub)

Mala has put his cuban hat back on and cuban cigar in mouth and reworks are track from his ‘Mala in Cuba’ album pumping it full of the Croydon dubstep which made his name. Plenty of reggae chinks on the old guitar and a thumping big fat bassline blasting along. I’m loving the elements of reverb drenched vocals that fly in and o...view item »

Various (Mala, Coki, Four Tet etc.)
Soul Jazz Records Records presents Future Bass

I'm always a sucker for the Soul Jazz comps. They're always well researched, well thought out compilations which usually sound as good as they look. Future Bass is showing us the future of where dubstep is heading and thankfully the wobble is gone and you're left with a more sparse, dubby, techy sound. On here you get tracks by Mala, Four Tet, U...view item »

Left Leg Out/ Blue Notez

MALA one half of DIGITAL MYSTIKZ is at the controls this time and on first listen of 'Left Leg In' I'm not entirely convinced. There is a loop that's almost like a sped up disco hook, some eeries synths, tribal-ish percussion but the bassline is really low in the mix and lacks the power we've come to expect f...view item »

Learn/ Lean Forward

New 12" from Digital Mystics: "Lean Forward" (DMZ) is more of the rootsy end of the dubstep genre that appeals to me more than the grimey end of the spectrum. Taking in Nyabinghi style percussive fills and a militant steppers style tempo to the riddim. High quality release again, yes I like v. much....view item »

Bury Da Buoy/ Hunter

Last from me is the new DMZ 12" by MALA. More uptempo than some recent waxings, 'Bury Da Bwoy' is one of the best slabs i've heard from this spiritual stable. An eerie, vibrant piece with a galloping technoid beat underpinning this pulsing, trippy piece of (superb) dubstep. I don't know how they get this vibe & depth to the ...view item »

Loefah & Mala
Twisup VIP / Da Wrath

Digital Mystikz are another one for me. Purveyors of the sort of deep tribal dubby end of the Grime scene that I love, this is voodoo head music for the soul. Minimal enough to appeal to a large base of dance music lovers from junglists to dubheads to more open minded garage fans, this 12" is a split between Loefah & Mala...view item »
