Man, this is something that's beyond words. I compare this to a visit from the Pontiff himself. The co founder of Digital Mystikz, Deep Medi, DMZ will be gracing Toronto in just under 1 week.
Mala will be in the Toronto to bring some of that foundation, some of the bass music that many on this side of the pond need to know exists. With many of the early writers and influential producer of bass music expressing concern with it's current direction, esp in North America, ppl like Mala are here to show all how it should be done and played. A man who plays nothing but wax and mostly dubs on top of that. Massive.
So I'm overjoyed to see the the good ppl at 40hz running this night.
