Knife Mix 004 : Malika Mahmoud

Posted

Words by: Henrik Koefod Petersen

With the fourth instalment in our mix-series, we are very excited to present this eclectic one-hour mix from Malika Mahmoud, the founder of the Copenhagen-based non-profit radio organization, MMH Radio.

From her heavy involvement in the Copenhagen DJ-circuit and diverse musical knowledge, the mix reflects a wide array of Mahmoud's influences, kicking things off with the Balearic sounds of A.r.t. Wilson's Rebecca's Theme, stretching all the way across underground Reggaeton.

This is just one of the twists and turns along the one-hour journey, which highlights Mahmoud's diverse approach to music digging and her abilities to blend music from several continents, while sustaining a balanced level of energy throughout the mix.

The mix showcases Malika's unique eye for finding rare gems and exciting new music from independent record labels such as this highly tipped Egyptian club banger from Sadat & Alaa Fifty Cent, as well as this much recommended compilation from Australian label, Body Promise.

At the same time, Malika brings the fun to the party with DJ Sliink's Jersey Club anthem Put Cha Back Into It from 2012, while also paying tribute to the future club sounds of L.A. and London, with tracks from former Fade To Mind and Hyperdub stalwarts, NA DJ and Ikonika.

We hope that you enjoy this mix equally as much as we did and if you're interested to learn more about MMH Radio, head over to Strøm Festival's website to read a thorough interview with the founder.
