Octavian is changing the rap game, we know it, now you know it do. On his first UK tour the Drake co-signed artist is readying his eclectic musical kaleidoscope of tricks with tracks like Hands winning him fans everywhere.
The French-born, south-east London rapper and his distinctive flow are coming for you fast. “You’re gonna blow, it’s just timing” was a key self-fulfilling lyric on the track, marking a moment when Octavian made the transition from intriguing new name on the scene to becoming one of the most talked-about artists around.
Pitchfork are on-side too and living for his already timeless sound. "His songs churn up R&B and dancehall with downbeat grime, peppy house, and UK hip-hop; in his quicksand rasp is a wise, ageless quality, a defiant hurtness that makes sense across genres."
Rising singer/songwriter Ama Lou will support with a soulful twist and her Before It Was Knew tour. Her three-track EP DDD is majestic, well worth showing up early, promise.
