The beauty of future house is that it’s an untouched genre. Only now are we beginning to see massive names emerging from the ghostly, unnoticed section of electronic music. Mainstream fans are experiencing this alternative, difficult sound for the first time; with the help of Tchami, his revolutionary label Confession, and all of his artists (including MALAA), future house is brought into the mainstream limelight. The beauty is that it’s an untouched genre, and future house producers are able to change the game in anyway they please. Each innovation in sound is considered vastly original, because the singled out sound in itself is original in all of its glory.
MALAA’s contribution to the development of future house is the integration of rap lyrics into the bass heavy tracks. Not such an easy thing to master, but considering MALAA’s last release, “Notorious” has accumulated over 857,000 Soundcloud plays, it might be fair to assume that he has the technique locked down.
“Fade” features a similar sound, combining the voices of inspiring Kool G, and revolutionary lyricist NAS. The track is upbeat, with a low, deep house sound, which contrasts a relatively fast tempo creating a sweet and sour type listen. Though it may seem odd those who have not listened to the genre, you soon acquire a taste for the different, enjoyable sounds. MALAA’s release is one that will help grow the genre of future house, and allow more mainstream fans to branch out and experience different sections of electronic music. Another great track by another revolutionary artist.
