+ Lighta!, Modern Math, Babel, Aufect - Van City BC +
Soundbwoy Obliterating Futuristic Riddim 'n' Bass Flex Killing sound since '97, and often described as un-categorizable, Taal Mala’s music is inspired by the perpetual booty bounce and it's sonic odyssey throughout new riddim prototypes, to classical and contemporary auricular standards, and takes influence from past, present, and future dub-wise rhythms. UK Garage, Grime, Jungle, Techno, Footwork, Acid, UK Hardcore, Reggae, and Dancehall are all partially responsible for the fusion that is created.
As a member of the Lighta! Soundsystem, Taal Mala has remained one of the few DJ's still dedicated to burying an excess of tin pan soundboys with dubplates played on the vastly superior format of vinyl records.
Taal Mala's first vinyl 12", 'Criminal Youths/Mud Up' was released on Badman Press Recordings Oct, 2010. Other releases in 2010 include the 'Dreader Than Dread EP' also on BadmanPress Recordings, 'Stakker Humanoid - [Sub-Osc Remix]' on Jumpin' & Pumpin', Ill Gates & Meesha - Sweatshop [taal mala remix] on Muti Music. February 2012 saw the release of 'Evy Jane - Say So [taal mall remix]' 12" on King Deluxe Records. 'Lenses/Mirrors' was released on Aufect Recordings in 2011. Released on 10Pin Recordings 'Blackout' in Feb. 2013 and 'Output Your Insides / X-Axis' forthcoming on 10Pin Records in 2014. July 2014 saw the release of "White Label EP" on 12" and digital with Modern
Math Recordings, and 'Elegant Replica/Elegant Replica [Michael Red remix]/Michael Red - Change/[taal mala remix]' released on 12" on Babel Recordings in January 2017. Also forthcoming in 2018 is a remix of Sam Binga “King & Queen” featuring Rider Shafique and

+ Bellingham - WA, Underground Transmissions, Deep N Bass +
Korra the Kid has entered the bass scene at an unheard of speed since her first club performace after her 21st birthday last May. As Deep N Bass's youngest resident DJ, she specializes in liquid drum and bass and halftime, but her long history in music and mixing has let her become a DJ who is fluent in the many genres of underground bass. After sharing the stage with big name artists such as Spectrasoul, Chimpo, Truth, Holly, and more, Korra the Kid has become a name synonymous with clean, quick transitions and unique mash ups. Having mixed for over four years and performed at prestigious venues such as Kremwerk, Q Nightclub, and The Wild Buffalo, it is clear her mixing style is the product of practice and an understanding of the underground music scene.
