Norwich-based producer Malana (Shaun Banham) resists easy classification, blending elements of Trip hop, Downtempo and Future Garage while drawing influence from the likes of Bonobo, Burial and XXYYXX. His unique brand of contemporary electronic music combines enveloping ambient textures with organic instrumentation, emotive melodies and evocative chopped-up vocals. While working as a studio engineer and sync music composer, Malana developed his production skills along with a passion for electronic music and sampling. Starting the project as a Hip-hop beat maker in 2019, he saw early success with standout instrumental track, “Belong With Her” clocking over 1 million views on YouTube. Set to release a trilogy of singles throughout the first half of 2020 tying together themes of loss and personal growth, Malana is continuing to write and produce new material while adapting his music for live performance.
