Artist to Watch: Oliver Malcolm

Nowadays, with technology and the power of collaboration, a lot of artists utilize a number of people and team members to craft their signature sound and music. However, every once in a while, a golden goose comes by that can do it all and Oliver Malcolm is one of those.

Having started producing on a cracked Logic program when he was only 15, Malcolm has turned into a 100% force that writes, sings, produces, and plays a myriad of instruments to create his unique sound. Starting as a producer under the moniker Big Kidd, the Swedish-UK star has been blazing a trail to take his own name and artist project to the next level.

Inspired by the likes of Eminem and MGMT, Malcolm first started to work with underground rappers like MF Doom and IDK, but has most recently found himself collaborating with a wide range of artists from Cee Lo Green to Masego to D12. This exposure has influenced his own sound to be a mixture of alternative, urban, soul, and even pop. With new music on the horizon, 2020 is the year that Oliver Malcolm is sure to become a force within the music community.

[Pop] GALXARA – KILLA KILLA

GALXARA
KILLA KILLA

Although her name and style evoke the heavens, Galxara hails from far humbler roots. The artist was raised in Florida with her Nicaraguan mother and American father, both of whom were constantly blending the styles and genres of music of both backgrounds. Growing up in such an environment, Galxara took an interest in music early on and it is clear in her vocal talent.

Now based in Los Angeles, the up and coming act has been writing and recording songs for her debut album, due out 2020 via Atlantic Records. “Killa Killa” is just a hint of what’s to come from Galxara. The demo was produced by Jake Sinclair (Panic! At The Disco, Pink, etc) and she is not messing around. When asked about the debut drop, Galxara said “Although Galxara is fantastical, she’s still me,” the singer says, “She’s not a character. Instead, she’s the person I choose to be.”
