"...After three successful seasons as a judge and artist mentor on The X-Factor, the wildly popular U.K. based show’s Hungarian version, veteran songwriter, producer and mixing engineer Miklos Malek is looking for the next music superstar. “Auditioning thousands of people, and helping my contestants win the show and the audience’s heart gave me a new perspective on what today’s artists need to become successful.”
Since launching his career in N.Y.C. in the early 2000s, Malek—who has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2006—has worked with a wide variety of artists from a multitude of genres, from R&B/pop to country, world music and global pop. Signing with Notation Music Publishing led to his breakthrough as a co-writer and arranger of Anastacia’s “I Thought I Told You That” (featuring Faith Evans) and opportunities to work with Jennifer Lopez (“Love Don’t Cost A Thing”), Pixie Lott, Dream, M2M and country singer Jessica Andrews..."

LIVING OUT LOUD - Q&A with Producer, Songwriter and Artist Miklos Malek
"...Miklos Malek is of Hungary, the beautiful nation in Eastern Europe. He moved to the U.S. some years ago and now lives in the San Fernando Valley, just northwest of Los Angeles. The man is simply a genius, on top of being humble, nice and a workaholic in the music industry.That’s led him to become one of the most respected producers, songwriters and artists in this field,a field that many enter but exit quickly. Malek’s managed to stay atop because of his innovative creativity and talented traits. To date, some of his credits include Jennifer Lopez, Anastacia, Faith Evans, Article A, Donna Summer, Jessica Andrews, Sylvia Tosun, David Phelps, Dream, Marion Raven, Hiromi Go, Coco Lee, Plus One and Yanni, among others.

DAILY HERALD - ‘Touch of Truth’: Yanni kicking butt on new CD
“…Yanni did something he has only done occasionally over the years -- collaborate with an outside writer on songs -- Miklos Malek. He is credited on five of the CD’s 15 songs. Yanni connected with Malek, a producer/songwriter who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Faith Evans, Jessica Andrews and Donna Summer among others, through his producer, Ric Wake.
“Miklos is just a great composer. I love the guy,” Yanni said. “He was in Los Angeles. We never even got together. He was working in Los Angeles. I would send him ideas, and he would work on them and send some of his ideas back. Or, he would have an idea. And then Ric Wake would listen to ideas Miklos had, and he would say, ‘Hey, what do you think?’
“He [Malek] would sort of start a song or [have it] in a very raw form, and Ric would kind of pick and go, ‘I think I like this one. Why don’t you listen to it tonight and see what you think?’ “ Yanni said. “I liked some of the ideas, and then I took them and then I made them into songs. ... He had some really nice ideas, a lot of stuff, and I will be working with him in the future many times.”

MAINLY PIANO - Yanni “Truth of Touch”

“…the first seven tracks are stirring instrumentals that also include the exotic “Voyage” co-composed with Miklos Malek who lends a hand on five of the tracks. Malek also assists on the buoyant and flowing “Flash Of Color” which is in complete contrast to the more aggressive and compelling “Vertigo”
