South London’s Octavian flaunts his exciting range on new track “Move Me”

Collaborating with Mura Masa on his new track “Move Me”, Drake tipped Octavian flaunts his exciting range. In 2017, the 21-year-old dropped his debut "Party Here", a unique break from the monotonous trend of the UK’s highly controversial ‘drill’ scene. Born in Lille, France, but raised in South East London, Octavian has crafted a breakthrough with his distinctive electro-alt hip-hop, receiving co-signs from Off White’s Virgil Abloh and Drake. Octavian has made a name for himself with his ‘essie gang’ crew, drawing inspiration from dancehall, grime and American trap.

Octavian has over 1.9 million playlist followers

“Move Me” is an exciting demonstration of a new wave of rap with an undeniably addictive groove. Mura Masa’s danceable backing supports Octavian’s artistic idiosyncrasies with lyricism and metre.

Featured on 19 influential playlists, including Dope The Playlist, Rap UK and Rap It Up, Octavian has picked up over 1.9 million playlist followers this week. In the past seven days alone, his playlist following has grown by over 75,000 (Instrumental A&R Music Scouting Platform).
