A departure from his broken beat and electronic output under his Romaal Kultan alias which has seen him release on YAM Records and Touching Bass, as Little Ollie, Ollie Malin explores the more stripped back and soul-stirring side of his songwriting, matching his soft vocal tones with tender guitar melodies.
“This song is about a demon that won’t disappear; a painful, morbid but tender romance. The last six months, it has been extremely difficult to stick with anything creatively – impossible most of the time really. But this song luckily found its way.”
This year we’ve chosen to split profits from the release between two charities, both of whom are doing important work within their respective fields.
The first charity is London-based organisation You Make It, a creative programme that offers young women access to tools, networks and experiences — group learning, 1-1 mentoring, work experience, start-up support and 1-1 pastoral support — giving them the confidence to transform their lives through personal empowerment.
The second is Nigeria-based initiative Project Protect, a subdivision of Burna Boy’s charitable NGO The Reach, launched to help provide financial, medical and legal resources for EndSars protestors during and after the protests.
