Over the past year, the pop-house hybrid producer Mahalo has released on labels like Toolroom, Bunny Tiger, Armada, Perfect Havoc, IN/ROTATION, Understated, and Audiophile Live (who just celebrated their third anniversary!). His energetic production and knack for finding matching vocals has led to remixes for the likes of TRACE and Zhu. Now in 2018, Mahalo continues his takeover and we are happy to invite him into our fold for a NEST HQ MiniMix. Check it out with an interview below.
Have you seen any of the Oscars movies this year? Did you like them?
I saw Get Out and Three Billboards, and really enjoyed them both. Coco was hands down the best animated movie I’ve ever seen. I was really happy with all the results for this year.
What’s a classic music album that you first heard in childhood and that still inspires you, or that you still think fondly of?
You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby was one of my favorite albums as a kid. It’s fitting that this MiniMix starts off with the first track from the album, but with a Camelphat spin.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Avid fan of burritos. I could do with just those.
What can we expect from this MiniMix?
This mix is a bit of a taste of what a lot of my live shows sound like. Fast-paced, emotive, banging…the new, the old, the unreleased. It’s got it all!
What’s next for Mahalo in 2018?
I’m working on some really exciting projects and collaborations that I can’t wait to share. For now, my next release “Rhodie” drops Friday on CR2 Records’ Miami 2018 compilation.
