After meeting in 2011, Malachai and Voltage have gone on to become of the the most exciting new production teams on the scene. Under previous guises, the duo have released on the likes of Ram and Frequency, and gained support from BBC Radio 1, 1 Xtra, Hazard, Mampi Swift, Crissy Criss and Ray Keith. Now, 2012 sees Malachai and Voltage drop the trippy Pure Acid EP on Twisted Individual’s renowned Grid Recordings.
After a chilling intro full of trippy samples and menacing vibes, Pure Acid switches into a stomping dance floor number. Rumbling bass dominates proceedings whilst hard snares, punchy drums, and a strong dose of atmosphere make this more than your average jump up.
Full of attitude from the very beginning, Bumbaclat brings the vibes once again. Featuring catchy samples, intricate production touches and a bassline that almost chomps at you, Bumbaclat is classic Malachai and Voltage.
Revenge of the Wu Tang
A far cry from the the filthy bass of Pure Acid and Bumbaclat, the ultra clean sounds of Revenge of the Wu Tang show another side to Malachai and Voltage’s unique production style. Featuring a heavy, stripped down sounds, this one will still do the business.
The end to a stunning debut on Grid, The Block is another classic. One made specifically for the dancefloor, The Block’s infectious bassline and punchy drums see Malachai and Voltage recreate the classic Grid sound – with a fresh twist for 2012.
