22-year-old French-born, south east London-raised rapper Octavian is without a doubt one of breakout names in 2018 and today, he’s back to release a new single and video. Produced by O12, who also produced the previously-released “100 Degrees,” “Little” sees Octavian demonstrating his sharp lyrical dexterity (in contrast to the more abstract sonic textures of “Hands)” and features another video from Octavian’s Essie Gang collaborators Kill Farrell and Armin Druz, who have directed all the Octavian videos so far. Filmed in various London locations including OVO’s flagship Poland Street store, the “Little” video sees ICY JUST taking a starring role alongside Octavian himself. It’s another release that proved Octavian is very much in his own, unique lane and is a vital fresh voice needed in music today.
In the nine months since the release of his acclaimed single “Party Here,” Octavian has managed to capture the attention of the streets, fellow artists and critics in equal measures, with a series of crossover anthems and incendiary live performances that have got everyone talking. If “Party Here” was a near-perfect introduction to an exciting new talent, follow-up singles “100 Degrees (ft. Sam Wise)” and “Hands” only added to that claim, showcasing an artist willing to experiment and push to expand his horizons with his flawless fusion of genres.
