Octavian's independent sound enjoyed overnight success
Born in France, Octavian moved to London at an early age and spent a troubled childhood on the streets of Camberwell. His teenage years saw him attend London's famous BRIT school but also living rough on the streets and in sheltered housing. These eclectic, tough experiences resonate in his lyrics, which speak of survival, friendship and the strong desire to be unique and independent. As a rapper, Octavian has achieved just that. His sound blends rap, house and drill, with catchy 4/4 beats and elements of trap providing a refreshing take on UK hip-hop. Half-singing and half-rapping, Octavian's husky voice is perfect for the gritty lyrics he composes and saw tracks like ‘Little' and ‘100 Degrees' immediately catch on in a scene that's constantly on the look-out for something new. But it was the Octavian hit ‘Party Here' that really saw the artist catch fire, earning him a record deal with Black Butter alongside the likes of Wiley and Goldlink. With an explosive start behind him, you can find out what's next for the young star with tickets to Octavian performing live.
Discover new hip hop artist Octavian
For a newcomer artist, Octavian has enjoyed an unprecedented level of attention thanks to one man: Drake. The international hip-hop giant endorsed the young rapper by singing Octavian's ‘Party Here' at an after-party and posting the lyrics to social media. Almost immediately, the world paid attention - and rightly so. Along with artists like 808INK and Yxng Bane, Octavian is demonstrating how different musical genres and techniques can flow together, effortlessly switching between singing and rapping and creating a sound that reverberates with catchy beats, intelligent lyrics and shiver-inducing vocals. An artist who truly has something to say and is determined to make music in his own fashion, Octavian is a refreshingly independent musician who will appeal to rap lovers but also fans of other musical genres. Still young but wise beyond his ears, his lyrics will resonate with you in their mixture of pain, optimism and fierce determination.
