Who is Malaa? Conspiracies run rampant. But titles like purveyor of pernicious beats and mixer of maniacal melodies ring with resounding veracity nonetheless.

The French ski-masked menace just hit a noteworthy benchmark, the watershed 25th episode, in his longtime SoundCloud series, Who is Malaa. The mix collection has served as a vessel for Malaa to channel his multifarious musical proclivities, which range from minimal techno, to heady bass house, to his newfound affinity for on-brand nefarious mid-tempo (i.e., “Revolt“).

This latest installment exercises the length of the “Notorious” producer’s palette. From Eli Brown‘s whimsical, dancefloor-destined rework of up-and-coming Aussie powerhouse, Dom Dolla‘s recent “San Frandisco,” to Kage’s pandemic new “Virus,” to Martin Ikin’s soulful Beatport-topper, “Hooked,” the most in-demand house cuts of the moment are accounted for in the 30-minute milestone effort. The malevolent mix maestro’s mantra rings as apt prelude for this one: “You can listen to this shit at the club and go rob a bank afterwards.”

After more than eight months since its last iteration, a new WHO IS MALAA mix from house music’s masked avenger has materialized, no doubt to his fervent following’s maniacal merriment. Although it’s been a while, the mysterious Frenchman is still at the forefront of driving, propulsive beats. A significant departure from his previous mixes, though, this mix lends itself to the bouncier, Ibiza-friendly sound that’s enthralled the next phase of house music fanatics in recent months.

Stand out tracks from the mix come from a variety of house mavens including “Off” from Dale Howard, a notable Elrow release, in addition to Martin Ikin’s latest release on Toolroom, “How I Feel,” which does serious damage in the midst of this half-hour house-cursion. The world may not be any closer to knowing who Malaa really is, but his sonic identity remains crystal clear.
