Mala (Digital Mystikz / Deep Medi) @ Dubspot – ‘Wireless’ Video Interview

Mala, real name Mark Lawrence, is one of modern electronic music’s most forward-thinking and progressive figures. As a founding member of pioneering dubstep duo Digital Mystikz along with Coki, Mala‘s been at the forefront of recent underground club music in the UK and around the world. He’s played a pivotal role in the development of the genre we know today as dubstep.

For the latest episode of our Wireless video interview series, composer, producer and Dubspot instructor Raz Mesinai (aka Badawi) talks with the publicity-shy producer and dubstep heavyweight about a wind-range of topics that include early musical influences, club music and sound system culture, harmonic existence, sound quality, and much more. Mala talks about the impact of jungle and drum and bass music in the early 1990s, launching the highly influential DMZ club night and music label with childhood friends and collaborators Coki, Loefah, and Sgt Pokes to founding the well-respected Deep Medi Musik imprint.
