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.
