"It's identifiably Mala music, at once rooted and forward-leaning; trampling zones close to his ground-breaking early DMZ emissions and yet keenly compatible with the sci fi-esque Afro-Latin styles currently sprouting up across a diaspora located between London, NYC and South America. Effectively, Mala is your spirit guide, acting as an interlocutor between those dimensions, navigating a trip that comes on in waves between the stoned pipe rituals and skeletal drums of Kotos thru the queasy ayahuasca synth visions of Dedication 365 and brilliantly cinematic set-pieces like the dread couplet of They're Coming and Shadows, or the spellbinding dark drum arts of Inga Gani and the grimy stepper, Looney."
