A uniquely intercultural musician, Belgium's Malik cites as main artistic influences Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Coldplay. His own sound can't be imagined in terms of this trio, however. “Bad Mammi” is a mellow, warm-toned song with an infectious bass drum and extremely subtle, well performed vocals. It's backing synth melody is chill and pretty, but unobtrusive. Fans of hip hop, dancehall, pop music and even reggae are likely to appreciate this independent music gem.
A solo performer and songwriter, Malik became a musician with a simple desire which blossomed into a recording career.
“I wanted to record songs but I needed beats,” he writes, “so I decided to learn how to produce music. Since then it only went further.”
Asked to comment on the themes of his new track, Malik writes: “My single shares a refreshing feeling to its listeners. I always try to express myself and give a message through my songs. It's mostly about real-life situations and that's why I think people enjoy it.”
Malik is a young music artist at just 17, but he's not new to the game. Having been writing and recording music for about a third of his life, music makes up much of his identity. His songs have been called “emotionally driven and uplifting sounds.” He first bounded into public view at 16 with the international release of his debut mixtape, “Red Light.”
The success of “Red Light” led to his being courted by several American labels, but he obtained publishing through Universal Music France and founded his own indie label, Eternal March Craft Records, under which umbrella “Bad Mammi” has been released.
“Bad Mammi” by Malik is available from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide beginning 31 March 2017.
