  • Two kindred spirits united by distortion and dub.

  • The Los Angeles producer and DJ Maral has landed some remarkable features over just a handful of releases—Lee "Scratch" Perry and Crass's Penny Rimbaud guested on last year's Push LP, for example. Now she's collaborated with none other than Panda Bear for "On Your Way," a new single whose proceeds benefit Sweet Relief, a charity for struggling musicians. The first half bears Noah Lennox's trademark melodic sense, while the second half plumbs the distorted, downtempo psychedelia that's becoming Maral's sonic signature. The turning point, around two minutes in, is a brilliant flute and bass figure that wouldn't sound out of place on a Madlib Beat Konducta mixtape.
