Mysterious French producer Malaa has dropped a new track this week titled “Diamonds,” revealing the first single from his forthcoming Illicit EP. The masked producer has been gaining steam lately, linking up with fellow French dance music artists DJ Snake, Tchami and Mercer for their Pardon My French tour this year, with his new single serving as his third release via Tchami’s Confession label.
“Diamonds” is another example of Malaa’s characteristic bass heavy G-house style, featuring rolling basslines, repeated rap samples and an underground friendly production. The new track opens with a steady club beat surrounded by cavernous atmosphere, creating a tense mood. The masked DJ layers the bass saturated drops with a high pitched percussive lead, creating a sinister tone throughout.
“Diamonds” is a strong dance cut from Malaa, building further anticipation for his upcoming EP, which has yet to receive an official release date. In the meantime, you can purchase the new track here.
