‘Dub War’: Mala


Dub War celebrates its fifth anniversary by hosting a UK dubstep master. Mala’s lately been busy running his purple-pioneering Deep Medi Music label, but now he’s returning to the Digital Mystikz’s fold, releasing his Return II Space triple-pack. Its title track mixes Mala’s trademark bass and melody with a minimal drive that reminds us more of Surgeon than anything going on in dubstep right now; we can’t wait to see what Mala does next. With MC Sgt. Pokes, residents Joe Nice, Dave Q, Juakali, Incyde, and some special guests.
