Listen: Mala – Essential Mix


Dubstep luminary Mala has stepped in to provide the latest Essential Mix for Radio 1 – listen to it below.

For the time being, Mala can do no wrong in our eyes. Last year's 'Mala In Cuba' full length saw the producer re-interpret Cuban flavours, using the island's plethora of rhythms, styles to re-invigorate his own approach to music.

An inspiring document, live shows have found Mala expanding on the material in spectacular. Throw in the continued success of his Deep Medi imprint and you have a true bass heavyweight…

At the weekend, Radio 1 broadcast the latest instalment of their Essential Mix series, with Mala taking a solo turn. Opening with Mark Pritchard, the tracklisting contains some choice material – all sitting in the dubstep lineage, there's an immense awareness of how space can be used as an instrument in its own right.

Ending with a very special James Blake remix of 'Peace' this is pretty inspiring stuff from the Digital Mystikz don.

Listen to it below.
