Dubspot 5 Year Anniversary w/ MALA (Digital Mystikz) @ Deep Space NYC, Cielo 6/27

On Monday, June 27th (10pm – 3:30am) Dubspot will be celebrating its 5th anniversary at Deep Space NYC with DJs Francois K and very special guest Mala on the decks for the evening. We invite our friends, family, staff and alumni to join the festivities as we celebrate the birth of an idea that became the unique education experience that Dubspot is today. Over the past five years, Dubspot went from a single classroom in New York City’s West Village to a global electronic music production & DJ institute with students from around the world. We opened our classroom to the world with Dubspot Online School and we continue to expand with tours and workshops in cities from Austin and Los Angeles to Boston and Seattle, all the while our base in NYC keeps expanding.

Read our feature on Mala from last year.

To make this event a great party, we are joining forces with NYC’s premier dance music weekly: Deep Space. Founder and resident DJ Francois K will be joined by one of modern electronic music’s most forward-thinking and progressive producers: Mark Lawrence, aka Mala, founding member of pioneering dubstep duo Digital Mystikz and head of Deep Medi Musik. While these producers come from different parts of the sonic galaxy, this juxtaposition of sounds is what Dubspot is all about – pushing the boundaries and expanding dimensions between genres by way of talented people working together.

In anticipation for Monday night’s party with Mala and Francois K, we suggest you check out the first installment of a new mix series from Mala. Dubbed Sound*System*Musik, chapter one debuted as Side B of XLR8R‘s landmark 200th podcast! The 45 minute set contains fresh dubplates and exclusive tunes from the DMZ and Deep Medi Musik imprints, with tracks from Digital Mystikz, partner Coki, rising producer, Goth-Trad, Kryptic Minds, and a batch of tunes from rising dubstep producer V.I.V.E.K. The Deep Medi imprint recently unleashed a compilation album titled Deep Medi Releases Vol. 3, V.I.V.E.K.‘s Eyes Down EP, and an 12″ from Tectonic head honcho Pinch drops next month. Mala is currently on a short US tour which includes stops in Denver, Austin, and Houston. We were very excited for his last appearance in New York, at Dub War’s fifth anniversary party, so we’re even more hype we get to party with him for our own fifth! Here’s a brilliant, melancholic, and synthy jam from Mala. This track didn’t appear on last year’s epic Return II Space album, which is highly recommended, but it is apt for this occasion, so we’d like to share it.
