Born in France and raised in London, Octavian is committed to broadening the sound of UK hip-hop - which he says is often oversimplified as grime or drill. His debut single, 'Party Here', moves from ominous verses to euphoric, arms-aloft choruses - earning him a shout-out from Drake... Alongside production from his close-knit Essie Gang crew, his music takes elements of R&B, Dancehall, grime and house – a truly unique sound that is setting the template for rap in 2018.  In January 11th, Octavian wins the BBC Sounds Of 2019. He is the first rapper to win the Sound Of... since 50 Cent topped the inaugural list in 2003.
