Mala In Cuba

By Ben Fraser   -  13 March 2013

‘Mala in Cuba’ is the London based dubstep producer Mark Lawrence interpretation of Cuban music. Lawrence visited the country to play with local musicians, collecting recordings of live music to take back to England which then influenced this production.

The track ‘Change’ stands out for me because it gives me a real sense of what the revolutionary atmosphere of the country may have felt like in days past.

The euphoric build up of rattling percussion that plateaus into a soundscape of dubby synths creates a feeling of being locked down, fighting this and then being set free.
