Mala – Dedication365 (2016)

mala

‘Mirrors’ follows Mala’s 2012 Brownswood release where Gilles Peterson invited the producer to soak up Cuba’s music and culture to turn the results into ‘Mala In Cuba’. But ‘Mirrors’ is less ‘Mala In Cuba’ Mk II and more the realisation of a creative method that works for this most understated and intuitive producer: digging deep into the roots of a culture, recording local musicians and sounds, and using the recordings as source material and storyboard for a record. “It’s always going to start with the rhythm for me,” he says. Premiered by Kode 9 on Radio One – The Residency.
