Worldwide Premiere // Malkovich // Kenyatta (Pre-Boarding Mixtape)
October 24, 2014
The GPWW Premieres series is a special one this week, as Gilles unveils not only a track but an entire mixtape!
Almost three years after giving up his home and all his possessions to travel indefinitely, homeless traveling rapper Malkovich presents ‘Pre-Boarding‘, his new mixtape mixed by DJ Spinna. Iranian/British-blooded, Italian-born, and raised across the Middle East, Europe and Africa before moving to Los Angeles, Malkovich raps over African, Caribbean, Brazilian, Indian and Cape Verdean world music classics from Alice Coltrane, Shaan, Serge Gainsbourg, Rob, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Contonou Dahomey, Mulatu Astatqe, Augustus Pablo, Tim Maia, and Orquesta Joe Cain, as well as two compositions from L.A. producer Computer Jay. Omni, Sum, Chris Clarke and Ali Baba Abnormal also guest on the mixtape, which Malkovich wrote during his travels through the Dominican Republic, Belize and Jamaica.
Gilles’ Premiere pick from the mixtape is ‘Kenyatta’ which samples Joe Cain And His Orchestra’s 1960 track of the same name, from the album ‘Latin Explosion’.
You can grab the entire ‘Pre-Boarding’ mixtape from Malkovich’s Bandcamp.
