Paul Devro mixed the new download from Dominican party queen Maluca, known until recently for her hit “El Tigeraso.” Paul wrote a post about it on the blog for Mad Decent (Diplo’s record label) :

Continuing with our weekly mixtape giveaways we present you with Maluca – China Food mixed by me.  This is the brain child of Maluca for us to create a biographical trilogy (Past, Present and Future), if you will, of her musical influences and own music. First starting with where Maluca is coming from, early influences ( Playero Music ) and early songs (“Big Bad Bangs”), next, we move on to where she’s at, current influences ( “Mambo de Calle,” “Gaga Music” ), current songs ( “Jungle Violento,” “Flourescent Beige” ) and finally where she’s going influences ( “Dutch House,” “Vogue”/”Ballroom House” ), songs ( “Loca,” “Hector” ).  With original production from amazing producers Oliver Twizt, Mumdance, Ruckazoid, Kevin Seaton, Marcus Price and one wack one, Me. I’m pretty positive what you’re about to hear, new song or old will be 99percent new to your ears. So where Maluca goes from here I don’t know, but what i do know is that shes so talented, beautiful and crazy that I’ll be watching and listening closely the whole way.

Check out a significantly less controversial new video from M.I.A.,  at least compared to the gruesome “Born Free” video. Our girl Maya has traveled a long, bumpy road to the release of her album /\/\/\Y/\ , but she’s still going strong and sticking with the GIF animation theme in her “XXXO” video. If you haven’t already, check out the “XXXO” remixes featuring Jay-Z and more remixes by Riton and SBTRKT.

“Little Fly” is a quiet and melodic piece from the upcoming album Chamber Music Society, in which Esperanza Spalding sets the William Blake poem to original music. Throughout the piece, Esperanza’s vocals merge seamlessly with her own bass as well as the string trio that surrounds it.

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/I-Qk9f3ZdZw" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

On Tuesday October 12th at Nokia Theatre Times Square, Kruder & Dorfmeister will return for their first NYC show in 9 years. The 16 F**king Years Anniversary Session will feature MC Earl Zinger & Ras MC T- Weed with visuals by Fritz Fitzke. More details on the NYC show here. They’re also celebrating their record label anniversary with a new compilation, to be released in October 2010:

Sixteen F**king Years Of G-Stone Recordings gathers the complete artist roster of G-Stone and specialists for every kind of beat: turntable masters Urbs and DJ DSL bring hip-hop and comedy to the table while the productions of Peter Kruder, Rodney Hunter and Megablast & Makossa contain every nuance of dance beats from techno and house to cosmic funk, not to mention an impressive mastery of all the dance-floor-exotica from Africa, Brazil and the rest of Latin America.

The G-Stone range is rounded off by Stereotype and d.kay presenting the post drum & bass interfaces of digi-technology, dubstep and cut-up riddims as well as the glitch-wonk-whatever present. Sugar B gets all wacky, Marsmobil sound Air-esk and Richard Dorfmeister & Rupert Huber‘s Tosca is meditative and experimental all at the same time.
