Boomkat product review for:

mala - Cuba Electronic / Calle F

One of the year's most anticipated projects delivers the goods like no other. In May 2011 Mala travelled to Cuba with Gilles Peterson to record and collaborate with local musicians. The results are documented on the forthcoming 'Cuba Electronic' album for Brownswood Recordings, from whence this A-side takes its name. Working with a battery of swingeing, scissoring polyrhythms, Mala lays down his signature, earthy subbass with incredibly infectious fervor, drawing deeply rooted connections between a spectrum of Afro-Latin and Afro-Carribbean flavours that simply makes the dance swiiiiiiing! Flipside, he plays with cut-up piano motifs on an equally intricate rhythm, allowing nuff space for the keys to ring true while subs buckle and fold in wonderfully ornate patterns. Most importantly it's all handled with the balance of a true genius, safely avoiding any noodly frappery and aiming squarely at the 'floor, keeping ears and feet utterly transfixed.
