As teenagers, Mala and Coki (then Malibu & Coke) formed Digital Mystikz prior to the height of UK's dubstep scene in the mid-2000s. The scene quickly blew up with the assistance of BBC Radio 1 and the other artists at Big Apple Records in London. The duo has since been on countless global tours, founded the DMZ record label, and started one of the most influential bimonthly parties in the UK.
This morning, they announced the dates for their upcoming North American tour, with venues ranging from Brazil to Pittsburgh and all the big cities in-between. The Brazil shows will be Mala only, and the Colorado show will see a Coki solo performance; the rest of the shows will include both. For the heads that know, this isn't one of those shows you haphazardly pseudo-plan for. Grab your tickets as soon as possible and witness a major part of electronic music's recent history.
We'll be at the March 1st show in Los Angeles, hosted by the SMOG crew at Lot 613. Opening for DMZ that night is Pavarøtti, one of the few LA artists still pushing the dub plate culture (check out his latest mix below).
We're excited to toss on the hoody, grab a tallboy, and move to the deep grooves and freshly cut dubs with you all. Big ups to everybody who had a hand in planning this tour, we thank you.
