Malaa-clava at the Academy: French DJ and producer Malaa, signed to Tchami’s label Confession, remains anonymous but he has some new singles out this year including “Pondicherry” with DJ Snake. So whoever the hell it is, the artist has been rocking since his early singles “Notorious” and “Confession.”

The balaclava makes for a nice touch to be honest, but this is no Deadmau5/Marshmello showmanship. Malaa appears to relish the anonymity, and it appears to be a statement about focussing on the music rather than any sort of celebrity. This set at the Academy is of course indoors, but it’s COVID safe.

Malaa-clava at the Academy: The event takes place at 10 p.m. on Saturday, October 16 at Academy LA.
