This time last year we had the opportunity to have Mala deal a DJ set at Clandestino Festival, it was class, very very dutty. Mala is not with us this year, however you can get your ear mittens around a mix he’s done for the podcast series of Xlr8r. Download here.
As for Clandestino, it’s already kicked off with Debruit laying it down at the inauguration a couple weeks ago, with the main action taking place this coming weekend. On-board are Susheela Raman, the destroyer Mutamassik, DJ Gavana, Baloji, French beat-maker Onra, Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke, Amazigh Kateb, Hype Williams who recently signed to Hyperdub, Soom T & Disrupt (Jahtari), and plenty more. I know I’ll see some of you there. It’s my 50th birthday on the Saturday, so your welcome to join me, Aleksander, Karin, Nat, Gavana, Fasterpeace, JayStarSeven, The Nazarenes and the entire Clandestino crew for a drink or two. Maybe I should finally decide what I want to do when I grow up,
