Malaa crowns third house-filled volume of his ‘Illegal Mixtape’ series
Illegal house has forcibly held the better half of this unpredictable year hostage, courtesy of none other than Malaa. Introducing the third installment in his Illegal Mixtape movement at the onset of summer with “Don’t Talk” and steadily tacking on two further extensions in the time since, the masked Parisian is now officially turning in the project in its entirety, nearly two years after the mixtape series’ sophomore edition.
It might be Malaa’s name on the compilation’s masthead, but he’s far from the sole act included on its considerable 14-track run, which employs the help of fellow house masterminds like Good Times Ahead, ALRT, Hooders, Kohmi, and Acraze, among others. Of course, Malaa himself couldn’t let the mixtape’s landing come without the completion of his musical trifecta as he adds “Realest” to line up alongside “Don’t Talk” and “Hell” with Koos. Arguably the mixtape’s most anticipated inclusion of all comes at the bottom of its tracklist, with Honey & Badger finally providing their long-awaited deep turn of Malaa’s “Notorious.”
