Mala 

Comments

After a three-month hiatus, avant-bass promoters Surya Dub return for a one-off event featuring DJ and producer Mala of the vaunted South London dubstep crew Digital Mystikz. With opaque tracks like "Bury the Bwoy" and "Miracles," Mala has maintained dubstep's brooding dub side, injecting the songs' atmospheres with evocative ragga vocal samples and adventurous rhythms. As usual, the Surya Dub crew plays it smart, matching Mala with two gifted local DJs: beat mutator Eprom, who terms his extreme-bass funk "psyphy" (psychedelic hyphy; clever, eh?) and veteran reggae don Ross Hogg, who weaves his own tough hip-hop reggae remixes into his always-thumping sets.
