Welcome to the 6th and final tape in our series of Radio London recordings. It’s true, all good things must come to an end. Recorded sometime in December of 1991, this snippet of Malik’s CKLN pledge drive holds a couple of very significant details.
During one of the first few broadcasts in December Malik announced that he would no longer be DJing at Exodus. Actually, any raves for that matter with the first Chemistry party fast approaching – he was billed on the flyer. Unfortunately we don’t have a recording of his announcement, but given his comments during this broadcast it’s obviously post retirement. Malik does send a shout-out to the “sections” and plugs the rave that evening, but he doesn’t attach himself to the event. Later on in the recording it’s evident that he had shifted focus to a Saturday night at The Cameron House called Beatnik Beats, announcing he was there the week previous.
Now for the good news. There are two songs played during this recording, both of them were actually made by Malik and appeared on his tape, A Trance Induced State – Mental Frequency.
I’ve had this recording for 18 years never realizing they were Malik’s tunes until I recently managed to track down his full tape (thanks Robert). All eight of Malik’s tracks have since been converted to mp3 and I must say they’re quite nice.
- The Blue Man of the Desert – Malik X
- Percarout (Life in Balance) – Malik X
