Mala dropping the B side of XLR8R's landmark 200th Podcast and it's full of the weighty sound system music we've all come to respect and expect from the man. Mala has remained relatively quiet on the official release front so far in 2011, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy building new material in the studio and 'Bad Spirits on Shoulders' is a prime example. While many of the dubs throughout the mix have no current plans for release, the mix does feature previous releases on his Deep Medi label from Old Apparatus and VIVEK, including 'Big Bang' off of VIVEK's 'Eyes Down' EP which just released in all of the usual outlets today. The mix also features a forthcoming Medi release from Commodo who along with Lurka, Biome, and Be-1ne, are dubstep producers to watch out for in 2011. Also be on the lookout for VIVEK's remix of Johnny Osbourne to be released on Greensleeves as part of their dubstep remix series, currently putting a new spin on some of the famed reggae label's classics.
