Octavian's Hotly-Anticipated 'Spaceman' Mixtape Has Arrived

September 11, 2018

Earlier this month, Octavian released a short and snappy video for a new track called "Revenge". Sadly, the video's no longer playable in the UK, but the video did come with the announcement of a new mixtape called Spaceman.

The mixtape dropped at midnight last night via Black Butter and continues down the path of combining R&B melodies with rap and a high-end production style. There are only a handful of features; Suspect, A2, Swift and Krimbo all guest, while production comes from J-Rick, Amir Amor of Rudimental, South East London newcomer Elevated, O12, Lil Silva and Octavian himself. The bold, crossed swords artwork for the project comes from Virgil Abloh, Armin Druzanovic and Michael Phan. So far, the tape's had a very positive reception, with some even calling him the inspiration for Drake's Scorpion.

To celebrate the release he's kicking off a tour across the UK and Ireland, beginning in Manchester later in the month.
