Black 180g Heavyweight Vinyl, Gatefold Sleeve with Lyric insert, proudly pressed in Ireland by Dublin Vinyl
Experimenting with a variety of hip-hop styles, including poetry and spoken-word, Malaki synthesises a rich and original interpretation of Dublin life and seamlessly fuses personal expression with sharp social and political critique. ‘Chrysalis’ sees Malaki unite intense, internal introspection with a hope-filled, outward-looking collaborative spirit. His two projects, while differing in style and mood, both retain an anchored theme of catharsis of thought. Music has never been just melody and rhythm for Malaki; it’s therapy. While ‘Butterfly Boy’ was born out of a simmering silence, equipped with Malaki’s distinctive urban voice and youthful relatability, ‘Cocoon’ exists as a reaction to the noise left in its wake, its sights set on the pursuit of connection, collaboration and the building of community.
