Digital Mystikz are a dubstep production duo (consisting of Mala and Coki – when the two started making music together as teenagers they were known as Malibu and Coke) from the South London suburb of Norwood.[1][2] Along with Loefah and Sgt. Pokes, they operate the DMZ record label and host the influential[3] bimonthly[4] nightclub DMZ, held at the Mass club complex in Brixton, London.[5] BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, was an early supporter of Digital Mystikz, eventually putting them in his annual 2004 Top 50 list at #29.[6] They are among the scene's most famous producers.[7] Their song "Anti War Dub" appeared in the 2006 film "Children of Men," although it wasn't included in the soundtrack. In the summer of 2008, Mala was chosen to headline the night portion of the Sónar Festival in Barcelona.[8]

DMZ

DMZ has been described as one of dubstep's two "most influential regular clubnight[s]" (with its predecessor FWD>> the other one)[9] and "central to the scene."[10] Since starting in March 2005, the club's attendance has increased steadily.[11] DMZ's first anniversary, when a queue of 600 people[12] forced the club to move from its regular 400-capacity space[5] to Mass' main room, has been cited as a pivotal moment in dubstep's history.[9] BBC Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, whose support of dubstep has increased the music's popularity, discovered it at DMZ.[13] The club is known for the power of its bass, always an important element in dubstep;[14] fliers carry the slogan "come meditate on bass weight."[7] In 2005, an assortment of songs were created specifically to be played on the club's soundsystem.[3]
