Malaa returns with teched-out single, ‘Addiction’Malaa Charly Chivteam

French house producer Malaa has been laying low for the past few months after a successful 2018 No Redemption EP and accompanying tour with fellow CONFESSION label-mate and Pardon My French member Tchami. The masked artist has now dropped “Addiction,” his first release of 2019 on Tchami’s CONFESSION imprint.

Joining the ranks of EDM tracks about cocaine, “Addiction” pushes a dark and sexy tech-house vibe that fits synonymously with Malaa’s existing portfolio of warehouse heaters. Equipped with a deep bassline loop and monotonous narration of coke addiction symptoms, “Addiction” builds its narrative with a classic house structure packed with vocal chops, buzzy synths, and a nicely layered set of percussive elements. Minimalist and low-key without compromising on production, “Addiction” comes forth as a solid first release of the year by Malaa.

Get Lucky festival is ringing in the 2019 spring season under thick blankets of bass.

Malaa drops off glitchy 23rd installment of ‘Who is Malaa?’ sonic saga

Malaa drops off glitchy 23rd installment of ‘Who is Malaa?’ sonic sagaMalaa Charly Chivteam

Malaa‘s status as a masked house maven finds further solidification in episode 23 of Who is Malaa? The enigmatic producer’s storied mix series has become synonymous with not only consistency, but variation, over its past 22 installments. While Malaa has cultivated a reputation for a particularly dark brand of house music, the inclusions in the Who is Malaa? sonic saga routinely traverse different house terrains, ranging from tech house, to G house, to bass house.

The Who is Malaa? mix series continues to illuminate and scale the continuum of house music stylings in its 23rd showing, which manifests as a tight and tenebrous near 30 minutes of house cuts. Hallmarks of the producer’s aesthetic, pronounced basslines, looping vocal overlays, and glitchy accent noises permeate the mix. While the artist’s identity remains characteristically obscure, one thing is certain: so long as Malaa continues to pump out releases in the Who is Malaa? family, the eponymous question of the title is immaterial.

Malaa keeps things dark with sleek new underground club cut ‘Cash Money’

Malaa keeps things dark with sleek new underground club cut ‘Cash Money’Malaa Charly Chivteam

Malaa is back with new music, just ahead of the anonymous producer’s North American Illegal tour kickoff this fall. The masked beatmaker’s latest deliver comes by way of “Cash Money” building the anticipation for his forthcoming Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2. The new original work is the second single from the impending compilation, following the project’s first infectious teaser, “Bling Bling.” Pair both singles side by side, and the new mixtape’s aesthetic really begins to take shape.

Whirling, ominous tech house layers are juxtaposed with tightly wound kicks stringing together the track’s propelling warehouse-primed energy. Designed as an underground club cut, “Cash Money” pushes Malaa’s signature dark, G-house-inspired sound. The track is out now via Tchami‘s CONFESSION imprint, and is a worthy addition to Malaa’s continually-growing catalogue of dangerous, club-ready sonics.

Malaa is taking no prisoners on the latest episode of Who Is Malaa. The enigmatic producer and signee of Tchami’s Confessions imprint has reached the 22nd edition of his series, and as per usual packs its half-hour duration with a beautiful fusion of deep grooves, tech, and future. Prominent basslines anchor the mix in place, as it starts off slow and crescendos into an explosion of house as it reaches its end. One fan even asserted on Twitter, “I wanna go rob a bank! ASAP,” in response to the heat Malaa brought forth in the mix.

This follows his most recent single “Bling Bling” which was released just last month. In addition to his forthcoming project, Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2, fans can catch Malaa on his Illegal Tour.
