Malaa and Jacknife release riotous new visual for ‘Revolt’
With over 2 million streams on collaborative track ‘Revolt’, bass-house producer Malaa and Australian DJ Jacknife have released a new music video for the intoxicating single released on DJ Snake’s label Premiere Class Records.
Shot in an aesthetically pleasing black-and-white frame, the visual for ‘Revolt’ is set in a grimy city center and follows a trio of destructive, balaclava-wearing men. Causing a trail of destruction in their path, the trio are seen carelessly riding motorcycles, committing robberies and throwing molotov cocktails at cars. The chaos seen in the visual marries well with the throbbing synths and bass-heavy beats of ‘Revolt’.
Although his identity still remains unknown, Malaa has gained attention internationally for his trademark balaclava and future house beats. With over a dozen singles and EP’s under Tchami’s Confession label, Malaa’s work has been recognized and remixed by global artist, Alok and has worked alongside Skrillex and Diplo’s collective, Jack U. Among some of his more popular releases are, ‘Notorious’, his remix for DJ Snake’s ‘Me Oh My (feat. Travis Scott, Migos, and GASHI) and his Tchami collaboration, ‘Prophecy’, which have amassed over 21 million streams on Spotify collectively.
An Australian native, collaborator JACKNIFE rose to international attention via successive releases on Insomniac, Kannibalen, Armada & Pinnacle Collective. Prioritizing progress in personal aspects, he is an ambassador for the counterculture of tomorrow. With previous support from Diplo, Bro Safari, Zeds Dead, Dr. Fresch, JAUZ and more, 2019 is set to be a groundbreaking year for JACKNIFE with tour dates in May/June lined up across Australia and beyond.
