London's enigmatic trio, RITUAL called on Skizzy Mars to create the synth jam, "The Only One." They coat the choppy beat with their sleepy vocals and smooth riffs. It's an indie groove dedicated to a girl who's left her lover hanging on after she's long gone. Mid way through the song, Mars, comes in on the track and seals it with a spotless verse.

Over email, RITUAL told The FADER "'The Only One' is something a bit different for us, we wanted to show that RITUAL is more than just a smooth R&B/ambient type project — we're huge fans of indie and hip-hop; this track really has its roots in that.”

Skizzy is an artist we're all fans of,” RITUAL explained. “He has an amazing flow but also a great sense of melody and really combines songwriting and hip-hop in a fresh way. We've been following him for a while so it was a real privilege to work with him on this one, he killed it - especially with his last line: You need space/ I gave you orbit.”
