For the last two years, Octavian has been riding a wave entirely of his own. His unique, off-kilter style injected a fresh perspective into the UK hip-hop scene, exposing international listeners to something more than the region's prolific grime exports. His breakout single “Party Here” used scattered flows, melodies and a mixture of hip-hop and house music to separate him from the crowd, and foreshadowed an artist bound to make a splash on a global scale.

With the release of his new mixtape Spaceman, it seems like the whole world is watching Octavian; and of course, everybody's loving it. But his rise to stardom has been so fast that it can be hard to pinpoint where he began. With a documented grind and hunger for success, it's not surprising when looking into his past, that his bright future was inevitable.
