2012’s Mala In Cuba saw the DMZ man head out to La Isla Grande for an album’s worth of dubstep-meets-salsa hybrids; the project’s since become one of Mala’s most successful endeavours to date. Album track ‘Noche Sueños’ has now been given the once-over by broken-beat / 2-step institution Zed Bias. Where Mala’s original was light as a feather, Bias’ take is a much turbulent affair, setting Danay Suare’s vocal line over a shimmering, swung house beat. Mala’s originals were surprisingly rootsy; Bias”dubbed-out edit is properly cosmic.
