Though New York artist Mangetout is set to release his first EP next week, the smoothness of his production style doesn't seem to indicate a nascent production career. "Ode," taken from his forthcoming If It Wer EP, features calming piano chords, soft vocal samples, and a haze of vinyl crackles and static. Mangetout lays down a foundation of strings which are accented by subdued drums that add to the track's melancholic atmosphere. Before the rest of the If It Wer EP is released on February 18, you watch the video for its title track after the jump.
