Big in Malta is a duo comprised of Yush and Sami ( Barreleye). Both of them grew up on different continents and collaborated on musical productions when they met in Washington DC in 2009. Sami- an accomplished guitarist draws his inspiration from alternate musical acts in the genres of psybient and trip hop from bands like Shpongle and Portishead. Gifted with a musical ear that easily gravitates towards melody Sami joined forces with Yush who has had a more percussive and deep house taste for a while. Together they produce a sound that can potentially be defined as a mix between breakbeats and post dub – leaning towards the deeper spectrum of sound.
