Any day with new music from Tchami’s CONFESSION label is a good day for the house music community. Today we’ve been blessed with the Illegal mixtape by the mysterious Malaa, who has somehow still managed to keep his identity secret while blowing up all of last year.

The mixtape features tracks by many CONFESSION all-stars such as Malaa (of course), Gerry Gonza, Bellecour, Maximono, Jace Mek, and other artists that Malaa admires and respects like Dateless, Skitzofrenix, Jurgensen, and more.

Honestly, every single producer on the project brings their A-game. Each track is as fire as the next, and if you’ve seen one of Malaa’s shows in the past year you will definitely recognize a few of the bangers he’s dropped on set. These productions range from heavy hitting prime time tracks to late night club cuts, and display an enormous degree of versatility from all artists involved.

Malaa is going on a short North American tour to support this mixtape. You can catch him at any of 6 stops below. While you’re at it, plug in some speakers with a good bass and familiarize yourself with the Illegal mixtape:
