'Under the Influence' is a competently made album, but 'Train Strain', 'Late Again', 'Our Gaff' and 'Why' are the only pockets of goodness in what is an album over-stuffed with introverted, drug / sex / alcohol / misery soaked tracks. 'Train Strain' is a comedic take on the tube experience. It's bouncy, fuzz bass led production is amazingly catchy and bridges the gap between UK garage and Hip Hop.
Lewisham born Mally Malcz is determined to make an impact on the UK hip hop scene in 2008.

Namely musical diversity and originality.
