After the leg-sweeping success of last year's 'Smile When The Sun Is Shining' - which received support most notably from Disclosure and The Blessed Madonna. LEGATO returns to Eton Messy Records, with the tender and mesmeric House stylings of 'It Was You, It Was Always You'.

The first installment of a brand new 2 track EP - due out in its entirety this April - sees LEGATO meld incisive, swing-infused percussion; gentle, soporific keys; and ghostly vocals - that swoop and fade throughout - to craft this ultra-elegant and entrancing new record; one that doubles-up nicely as a bold, 2021 opening gambit from EMR.

Inspired predominantly by Jazz, Soul, Balearic house and Lofi, LEGATO continues to explore and develop his expressive sound palette on his latest offering. 'It Was You, It Was Always You' bares emotion at its very core, beginning in a dreamlike state and building throughout with live foley, modular pad sounds and time stretched samples. 'Beneath The Scarlet Skies' continues on this journey, introducing handpan drum sounds, looped vocals and resampled synths.

On the EP, LEGATO explains: "I wanted it to reflect a lucid dream, I played around with a bunch of hazy, ethereal sounds both synthetic and from the real world, paying super close attention to texture, mood, arrangement and dynamics - really loved putting this one together."
