There's a good chance you've heard the work of Los Angeles producers Daniel Pineda and Asma Maroof, aka Nguzunguzu, even if you don't know it. They handled mixing duties on M.I.A.'s Vicki Leekx mixtape that dropped at the tail end of 2010 and Maroof also serves as M.I.A.'s current tour DJ. Vicki Leekx was the capper to a year in which they released two EPs, Nguzunguzu and Mirage, both of which drew from Chicago footwork and house-infused sonic strains of UK bass music, among other styles.
