So, this is a turn up for the books. It has been revealed that one of Dubstep’s founding fathers and continuing pioneers, Digital Mystikz man Mala is working on a new album with Cuban musicians. The news (via Clash) was announced by none other than Mala’s friend and Cuban music afficianad Gilles Peterson. Apparently Mala accompanied the chamipon of global sounds on one of his trips to Cuba where he DJed and got an introduction to Cuban music:
“So I basically took Mala over there with me and we spent the first few days recording Latin rhythms and we took those back to the UK and he’s been working on that.”
So, a Mala interpretation of Cuban rhythms? Too good to be true? You will have to wait and see as the album is pencilled for a release in February/March.
