Every year since Malaa emerged from the caverns of dance music with a ski mask on, shrouded behind an opaque layer of cigarette smoke, he has, like clockwork, dropped a new single on Tchami‘s Confession imprint. And every year, like clockwork, that single is one of the year’s usual suspects of dance floor destruction.
2020 is no different in terms of release, as Malaa just put out his new Confession single entitled “OCB.” In terms of dance floor destruction, current global events may skew the results, but even in isolation, this track is sure to induce primal movement.
Built across a bouncing bassline, the track is annotated with twangy snaps and passive vocal samples that contribute just enough volume to maintain a minimal energy throughout.
