Mala - Miracles (Commodo Remix)

Possibly the most celebrated dubplate of 2012, Commodo's masterful remix of Mala's dancefloor classic 'Miracles' is sinister, cunning, and confident. Paced gracefully, its gait is fluid and precise, fueled by a monstrous low-end and unrelenting percussion. Most importantly, it is now released.

Once a secret weapon for a chosen few artists, Commodo's almost mythical remix will now be found in vinyl crates the world over. It is a bizarre moment in dubplate culture to be sure; a bittersweet feeling for many. There is something truly magical for those fortunate enough to have heard it at a dance before its release-- the feeling that one is being let in on some incredible secret that only those in attendance will ever hear. It is not totally unfounded to claim that a full-run release on Mala's Deep Medi label will cheapen this unique experience. But then again, countless followers might have otherwise not had the experience at all.
