Track Of The Week: Malaa ‘We Get Crunk’
Few artists are as mysterious and enigmatic as French masked-man Malaa. With the imminent release of his forthcoming Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2 compilation early this month, Malaa returns with his third single ahead of the mixtape release. His new single We Get Crunk is out now on Tchami’s CONFESSION imprint.
This newest release showcases Malaa at his imperious best. This blistering new single is the ideal dance floor heater that house lovers will drool over. On “We Get Crunk” A delightful kick push bed of percussion is tied together with a throbbing baseline and hypnotic vocal sample to create an undeniable hit. In contrast with his first two released singles from Illegal Vol. 2, Bling Bling and Cash Money, Malaa evokes a darker tech-house energy. Perfectly composed for strobe splashed underground nightclubs, “We Get Crunk” is set to heat up the long nights of winter.
“We Get Crunk” delivers a strong mix of sounds that are well known to be unique to Malaa productions, mashed with more classic, old school house music elements. Just when you think Malaa has no more tricks up his sleeve, he continues to pull out something new and different, always keeping us on our toes and wanting more.
Illegal Vol. 2 drops next month; you can catch him playing out all his new music on his current Illegal Fall Tour, making select stops throughout November and December. The full schedule for Malaa’s forthcoming Illegal Tour 2018 can be seen below and tickets can be purchased here.
