At the age of 17 he begun producing, mainly Hip-Hop drawing influence from producers such as Pete Rock, J-Dilla, Madlib, MF Doom just to name a few.

After spending his career popping up the hottest spots you can find in club-land, in-between running his own label DM Recordings and producing quality vibes with such talents as Kid Fonque, Jonny Miller and Rancido, please join us in welcoming back our good friend and collaborator - D-Malice. Taking time out of his hectic schedule, and following up the release of the “All This Time” & "All This Time Remixes" with Kid Fonque, D-Malice has brought his skills to the fore again with solo ARCo debut offering: ‘Phases'. We start with ‘#87’ and the mood is set instantly. Kicking off with straight up beats and low melodic tones that evoke the feelings and groove of the legendary Lil’ Louis at his finest, this pumping masterpiece reaches through your body and into your hips, daring you not to dance. We can promise you won’t be able to resist moving to this! Then D-Malice introduces his trademark low bass and deep afro-beats and steps up to the podium with ‘Phases’. Taking all things musical to a more interesting pitch, with a soothing and smoothing soundscape that runs up and down your spine, D-Malice peppers an insistent and effortless melody over a thoroughly enjoyable dance-floor goto. We then return to ‘Phases’ with a remix that is ‘Expressive’ in more than just name. Stepping up another gear, we are welcomed to a realm of low range tones and light percussive touches that brings D-Malice’s musical odyssey to new heights and leaves us begging for more, as he usually does with his ever popular 'Expressive Dubs'. A few words from Atjazz “I have always been intrigued by the sounds of D-Malice, I’ve also seen him perform on a few occasions, and I have to put it out there that he is one of the best afro-house DJs I’ve seen play live. No tricks, just honest hard work, and you can hear it in his music, he cares and that is the first block in his wall of sound, which is standing very strong. Phases had to come out via ARCo., it really suits us down the ground, Techy in parts, afro of course & just very well crafted dance-music.”
