Biography

Joseph Malik has a music career going back to the early 90ies as a DJ and club promoter and producer in Scotland. With fellow DJs Sace and Easi, he organised various club-nights and parties in Glasgow and Edinburgh, slowly building a rep as a DJ in the scene. But in 1993 Malik moved to Edinburgh to check out the International Arts Festival. There he hooked up with an old friend from back in the early 80’s Hip Hop scene: AJ who had his own studio and was already producing music for various rappers and singers. So he was looking for some fresh beats and ideas for tracks. The results were amazing and the duo had their first release under the name of MF’ Outa National on the ground breaking “Mo’ Wax Headz” album Vol. 1 with the track “Miles Out Of Time”.
1994 brought Malik and AJ to the Stereo Mc’s label “Response” home of fellow DJs Sace and Easi now recording under the name of NT and Mc Mello with a new production name “Black Anized”, taken from an old Hank Ballard record. They released a series of killer EPs and album projects on the Response label.

In 1996 Black Anized set up a home grown label in Edinburgh called Yush Records. With a host of musicians and visitors from around the world to their Bedroom beats studio’s they released various EPs, albums blending musical vibrations of Hip Hop, Reggae, Latin, Jazz, R&B, Breaks and Beats, African Asian Chinese experimental music styles.

In 1997 Malik left Black Anized and Yush Records to turn his thoughts to the Club scene with partner Tobey Shippy ‘Salsa Celtica’ and Simon Hodge ‘Big Beat’. They launched a new club night called “The Lizard Lounge”.

    How can this box be empty? This man is one of my top references.. Seen him in Porto and either as a composer, a vocalist or simply deejaying Joseph Malik is always a must see again. Dancing in the clouds! When will we have a third album?
