Mala digs in the John Peel Archive

Mala is a legend. In this 17-minute video, Mala’s Record Box, he pays tribute to the influence of John Peel on exposing new music in the UK – a presence still sorely missed. He shares the influences that helped develop his own sound, as well as a history of jungle, drum ‘n bass and the early days of dubstep. All the music from the film has been recorded from the archive and shared in the accompanying article, with some additional video clips. Definitely set some time aside to explore!
