Mallard - Verte
Making a splash with RS019 is a newcomer called Mallard. Discovered by Bradley after being front and centre for almost every RS dance since 2016, the South London based producer and multi-instrumentalist makes a serious first impression with his debut EP ‘ VERTE’.
Currently studying Jazz Double-Bass at Trinity School of Music, Mallard’s productions demonstrate a keen ear for groove with a level of musicality rarely heard in electronic productions. At just 20 years old, he has already developed a unique sound palette and prodigious production style set to make him a name we will only hear more of in the years to come.
This EP, at once varied in tone and tempo is held together by a strong sonic identity and an overarching artistic vision: from the morphing polyrhythmic percussion of ‘Surface’ to the shifting, heady pattern of ‘Aquitaine’ via the psychedelic breaks of ‘Untitled’ we are taken on quite the trip.
