Celebrate with Mala and Friends: Deep Medi 10-Year Anniversary Tour
March 24th, 2016MASS EDMC STAFF
Back in 2006, London producer Mala founded Deep Medi, a collective of like-minded creatives in pursuit of experimental sounds. Now ten years later, a few of the label’s stars are bringing some Bristol-flavor to North America in celebration of Deep Medi’s 10-year anniversary tour.
While Mala is known as a forerunner in the UK dubstep movement, his work draws from multiple influences, with hints of reggae and jazz sprinkled throughout. He’s also a revered member of the electronic music community, known to cut his own dubplates and teach the art of his craft to youngsters. Mala’s got quite a knack for really connecting with his audience, and really takes care to curate the energy in a room as he sends out his sounds.
Mala is joined by Gorgon Sound, a duo composed of Kahn & Neek. These guys have honed in on the dub-sound curated by Mala and the Deep Medi label, while giving their reggae tracks a modern electronic feel. Jim Coles, known as Om Unit, will also be making a special appearance. Fans can expect Om Unit to really switch it up with some experimental breakbeat and drum ‘n bass.
The Deep Medi tour is sure to be nostalgic for seasoned UK electronic fans, eye-opening for newcomers, and unifying in common experience for all who are ready to celebrate 10 years of this expansive artist collective.
