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.”

The pulsating heart of house music beats with stamina on Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco.” The record is liable to elicit a fervent “finally!” from Dolla fans, who’ve awaited the single’s official release for about a year’s time. 

“I’ve been testing this track out on the road for the better part of 12 months, tweaking the moments until I felt it had just the right amount of dance floor appeal,” Dolla wrote in a recent press release.

Agile beats pound in tandem with a hammering, low seated bass line stimulated by shrill sirens. A vocal sample of an unnamed local San Francisco “dance legend” amplifies the cut’s potent dance floor power.

“I felt [the sample] was just too perfect to let the track out into the world without it,” Dolla says of the elemental inclusion.

Touting a rhythm that’s established its esteem among closely clustered dancefloor crowds, “San Frandisco” issues a hard-driving nod to San Francisco’s vivacious house scene. Dolla brings the body funk with “San Frandisco,” which is out now via Sweat It Out/Arista.

Catch Dolla on tour throughout the US this fall with the likes of his official remixer, Sonny Fodera. Tickets available here.
