Ms. Maluca Mala, FADER #62 cover artist, has been pwning dancefloors with her brand of provocative party jams and band of toughass backup dancers. She is also maybe the most adroit simultaneous vocalist/cowbell player/dancer ever. "El Tigeraso" is the first hit, a cheeky speed merengue side-eye to those random dudes all tryna wife you when you walk down the street (if you live in Brooklyn and are a girl, you know what she's talking about). Though it's been in our minds and hearts for a few months, her label Mad Decent finally dropped the single this week with a mini cornucopia of remixes—this one's by up and coming SF producer/DJ Sticky K (whose gig this weekend, coincidentally, you can win tickets to here) and jacks up the brick-crushing rave factor by like 28 decibels. In the new wave of hybrid, digitized Latin tunes currently surging across the world, nobody reps NY like our fave Dominican badgirl wielding a mic.
