Digital FORT Day 1 is now over, and this video has been removed from The FADER.

Though he had already been working with artists like AlunaGeorge, G-Eazy and Tinashe, over the past few years, British producer Oliver Malcolm had never officially released solo music until earlier this year when he dropped “Switched Up.” And just last week, he returned with a new heavy hitter titled "Helen" which features beautifully sang pleas, asking for a woman's assistance. Today for Digital FORT, Malcolm welcomes us to his home studio for a comprehensive breakdown of how "Helen" came to be.
