Rationale

FOR FANS OF: NAO, PHARRELL, KWABS

All evidence suggests that the London-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rationale is firmly en route to bigger things in 2017.

Previously backed by influential fans such as Pharrell Williams, Elton John and Annie Mac, Rationale’s forthcoming EP ‘Vessels’ features two HypeMachine #1 tracks in the shape of ‘Prodigal Son’ and the title track.

It’s completed by two new tracks: a beguiling hybrid of funk, disco and soul infused into an 80s-tinged production with ‘Reciprocate’, and ‘Tethered’ which was inspired by the synth-orientated minimalist sound of Tame Impala.

You may have seen him touring Arenas with Bastille, a tour that saw him drop by the Leeds Arena in November last year.

You can see Rationale perform at Dr Martens Stage: Leeds Beckett Stage 1: 19:30.
