I've read in several reviews that BBC1 radio DJ Gilles Peterson gave the inspiration for dubstep artist Mala to record "Mala in Cuba".
Now, I'm a little incredulous how this story went, but couldn't find any details. First, I'm not aware that Dubstep has any particular links to Cuba, much more so to Jamaika and its Reggae music. Second, why did Mala trust Peterson that this is a good idea?
I think the album that came out of this is absolutely fantastic, but I would really like to know the background of this endeavour.
