as one of their "Best New Artists" last month.
Malcolm recently participated in FADER's Digital
Fort 2020 and took to breaking down the single "Helen." For an insight in Oliver's production and songwriting process, watch "The Making of 'Helen'" on Youtube. The Swedish born, London raised artist is fast becoming one of music's favorite new discoveries. With two explosive singles under his belt and more to be released soon, Oliver
has received early praise by the likes of New York Times, FADER, Ones To Watch, SPIN and more.
Media praise for Oliver
Malcolm & "Switched Up":
"A sleek hybrid of rap and R&B" — FADER
"The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm's voice is a rattled, quavery moan...Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of "Switched Off" by Oliver
Malcolm" — New York Times, Playlist
"Oliver Malcolm's 'Switched Up' Is Intoxicating… new single 'Switched Up' is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques." - CLASH
Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic
and taught himself how to produce - working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe
and more. Now twenty, Oliver
has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing and mastering, Oliver's sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.
