Malente & Dex
DE - Exploited Rec.
This is tropical party house for new wave techno heads from Malente&Dex.
The last time we saw Malente&Dex was way back when “Hyperactive” was released on
“Exploited” with a fat and galant note and a slew of mixes from Bobmo, Bird
Peterson and Riva Starr. Moving on from the Super Rave Sound the “Bangkok”-EP has
a more Tropical-Tech-Thing going on, a ton of trumpets and horns and a great collab
with Bonde do Role, Analogik and New Kidz.
Malente&Dex are no strangers to the scene. It is a nightlife name you can trust. Just
check the playlists of folks like Diplo, Riva Starr, Brodinski, Untold, Renaissance Man,
Fake Blood or Tiga. If there’s a dancefloor fire getting started somewhere – anywhere! – a Malente&Dex tune has probably had something to do with it.
On “Bangkok” Malente&Dex teamed up with Bonde do Role.
Their track “Lions” fingers Dancehall with a sticky house digit, featuring New Kidz
“Gipsy Kings” (a collab with danish band Analogik) strikes for the Balkan gold with a
jaunty house hybrid that is possessed by the spirit of a dismembered ska track with the
voodoo of an after-hours back room club jumping across its grave. Even Norman Bates,
his Mom and that fatal shower shake their booty to this.
