With her sporadic dance floor melodies and a voice as sensuous as it is sassy, Maluca is kicking ass and taking names with what Diplo, her ex-boo, describes as “merengue acid house.” Maluca has been at it for a minute, but as a new signee to Mad Decent, she’s become a buzz name in the clubs and on the blogs. Maluca falls into two categories that Decent thrives on: foreign sounds of obscurity and a hipsteresque chick with an undeniable edge. With an energy reminiscent of Bonde Do Role and a style all her own, don’t be surprised to see Maluca following the steps of past Diplo disciples M.I.A. and Santigold. AC Endorsed by: Diplo Upcoming: “El Tigeraso” video coming soon. Debut album being recorded with producers Diplo, Paul Devro, Buraka Som Sistema, Jungle Violento and more.
