We’re off to Malphino Island, the fictional home of the band Malphino! Hypnotic Cumbia merges with a crazy mix of Latin-Rumba-Chicha-Forrò, freshened up with insanely wicked organs and digital wobbles! Reminiscent of Señor Coconut’s attitude, but more organic, rustic and hypnotic. The first album proper of the Londoners by choice came out in 2018 on Lex Records (MF Doom, BadBadNotGood, Kate Tempest) – another testimony to the artistic openness of this label. Ladies and gentlemen, please get aboard and visit Malphino Tropical Island!
