Having amassed big production credits for the likes of Joey Bada$$, MF Doom and Tinashe as a teenager, Oliver Malcolm is the Swedish-born, London-raised and LA-based artist and producer now making waves in his own right. With his new single ‘Helen’ out today we caught up with him to talk earliest song memories, The Clash, and his dream gig.

Last month he released his debut single ‘Switched Up’, channelling some classic JT R&B vibes within his eclectic blend of slick, soulful hip-hop and punkish urgency. On ‘Helen’ Malcolm delivers a raw, emotional cut fuelled by warped samples and blown-out, distorted basslines. The second track giving us a taste of Malcolm’s off-kilter, entrancing songwriting, ‘Helen’ further marks him as one to watch. With an EP on it’s way, we can’t wait to hear more.
