Malak Hossam, aka Malalaalaa is an Egyptian DJ, promoter and co-founder of Fractal Cairo — one of her city’s most elusive underground raves. Her latest work was on the women-led Unfamiliar party series as an organiser-turned-performer. 

In Malalaalaaa’s one-hour set, inspired by her recent gig at Unfamilar on January 13 2023; she wavers between chopped R&B to bassy dancehall incensed with deconstructed techno.  Malalaalaaa’s music brings together tracks like ‘Sensei’ by Karen NyameKG, and ‘Xupetilson’ by Tia Maria Produções, Stephen Laverty’s ‘Music Maker (Dub Mix), and more.
