MALALA is a collection of 7 percussive club tracks that took influence and inspiration from the ancien ritualistic mysticism of traditional afro-caribbean religions, and it’s also the final release from the enigmatic Venezuelan producer known as OCTUBRXLIBRV under this alias. Toking back a shattering recount of his ethnical roots and numinous influences with contemporary urban soundscapes with his unique imprint on latin rhythms, OCTUBRXLIBRV served both as a priest and as demon for the narrative guidance of MALALA, his final musical tale.
OCTUBRXLIBRV musical syncretism is surrounded by a collection of mystical references where ancient rhythms meet powerful rave melodies and dark dembow reconstructions. While this EP was highly planned for the dancefloor, the carefully selected religious samples and eerie sound excerpts, confer a highly narrative approach to MALALA.
Creating a musical core between spiritual afro-caribbean imaginaries and their sacred approach to sound with powerful percussive explorations and popular urban references, MALALA emerges as a ritualistic soundtrack for contemporary occultism witchcraft on the dancefloor.
“MALALA is a delivery of caribbean witchcraft magic that will make you feel like a retreat in Sorte.
Is the voice that you hear say your name in the distance, but when you look back there is nobody.
A gift for all the sinners.” - OCTUBRXLIBRV
