Octavian – Little

 

 

‘Little’ is the new single 22 year old French-born, south east London-raised rapper Octavian, who is without doubt one of the breakout names of 2018

 

22-year-old French-born, south-east London-raised rapper Octavian is, without doubt, one of the breakout names of 2018. In the nine months since the release of his acclaimed debut 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 one of our exciting new talents, follow up singles ‘100 Degrees (ft. Sam Wise)’ and ‘Hands’ only added to that claim, showcasing an artist willing to experiment and pushing to expand his horizons with his flawless fusion of genres. Today, Octavian releases a brand new single and video. Produced by O12 (who also produced ‘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 proves Octavian is very much in his own, unique lane, and is a vital fresh voice in UK music.

 

Meanwhile, after playing his biggest headline show yet earlier this month – a sold out-in-minutes event at Peckham’s 600 capacity Bussey Building – and performing at the Great Escape, All Points East and Love Saves The Day festivals recently, Octavian is set perform at festivals throughout the summer. The full set of currently-announced Octavian live dates are below.

Prince Lit – Currency

 

Prince Lit – Currency

 

Prince Lit, Colorado native and lyrically inclined, started rhyming at age 6. He found passion and nourishment of both written and spoken word by way of his mother’s poetry. That passion carries over into his struggle to victory and his music. That same passion also breeds witty similes and metaphors in his rhymes along with ear stimulating verses and adlibs. Musical paint splashes eardrums, so much so you’ll discover paint brushes sprouting from your ears as soon as you remove the headphones. Prince Lit’s musical influences are Kendrick Lamar and J Cole.

 

When Prinjastin aged out of the foster care system at 18, two months later he found himself homeless out on the street. Even though things were hard he continued his passion of performing poetry with a nonprofit called art from ashes. A program, that works with struggling youth. Prinjastin then learned about the Bridging the Gap Program at Mile High United Way. A program that provides resources to any youth that was in foster care on or after their 16th birthday. He received a housing voucher through the Family Unification Program. Prinjastin was able to become stable and get on his feet. Prinjastin has always been able to maintain a job. Through his networking in 2013 Prinjastin started a paid internship as an administrative assistant at the Supreme Court building downtown for the Office of Child Representative. PJ then landed another paid internship for the Office of Homeless youth and Development where he worked with the Housing authority. Prinjastin is a truly inspiring hard working articulate young man who is destined to follow his dreams of being an inspiring artist and having the financial stability to support his family. Prinjastin transformed his poetry into music to deliver a new sound to the world. The studios where PJ has slathered his bars with saliva are KMG Studios, Decibel Garden Studios and actively records with D.J Kush in Denver, Colorado recording studios. Prince Lit performed his first concert at (City Hall, on February fifteenth 2015).

Le Mystique

Inspired By Lightning - Le Mystique
Inspired By Lightning – Le Mystique

Le Mystique

Le Mystique is a project of Jimmy Dukelow.  Jimmy has been playing the guitar and writing songs since age 12. He studied classical guitar around the age of twenty. Over the next few years he really became rooted in a fingerpicking technique. He employs this style on classical and electric guitar.  From this piece, you can detect a David Gilmour influence.

 

In 1996 Jimmy recorded “Angels, Roses and Stars” and this was engineered and produced by Jim Reeves in Evanston, Illinois.   This session was a learning experience in recording and mastering songs.  As such he began using Cubase on his computer and recorded and uploaded songs to mp3.com. Jimmy Dukelow taught himself how to play keyboards and dove into the world of the synthesizer with its plethora of sounds. Every new sound brings a new inspiration.  Jimmy later went on to learn how to play the drums.

 

Dukelow is of French Huguenot heritage.  This inspired the name Le Mystique which translated from French means, “The Mystic”.   The Huguenots left France in the period of the 1500’s through the 1700’s.  The Catholic Church was now the official religion of France.  Huguenot’s were Protestant, (Some perhaps Mystics) being sought out for heresy.

 

The Le Mystique project began in late 2011.

 

Jimmy’s vision of Le Mystique, is that of mystical, the unexplained, metaphysical, but perhaps explainable.  The main theme of the music is good.  It has a message for the world, to enlighten, to inspire and to heal.  The music of Le Mystique can transcend many genres.  Most of which being; Indie/Alternative rock.

 

Dukelow sings baritone, and has a similarity to Depeche Mode’s David Gahan.

 

There is a nice fusion of electronica and a touch of a bluesy David Gilmore and other various guitar riffs.   Most of the songs are rhythmic and fluid.    2018 is going to be a great year for Le Mystique, with several songs in motion pictures pending.  It also brings about the soon to be released LP, “A Deeper Space”.

Stephen Bluhm

 

An engaging performer who loves dancing with the audience, Bluhm has been writing and performing for over 10 years. He’s been honing his craft all along, in Philadelphia for the first few years, playing at theaters and cafes. And more recently in Hudson, NY, working at the stellar music venue Helsinki Hudson. (By day, he’s also a long-time Etsy Admin.)

 

Bluhm has many many more songs in production, including: what will be an album of acoustic guitar, strings, and piano; a collection of Brill Building-inspired pop tunes; and more dancey synth pop.

 

Stephen’s songs, like him, have a self-effacing and modest appeal. But after years of honing his sound performing at places like the stellar music venue Helsinki Hudson in Hudson, NY, along with countless shows all up and down the I-95 corridor, Stephen’s talent is confidently laid bare on this first album. With help from Upstate NY friends like Otto Hauser on drums and the album mastering handled by Peerless Mastering in Boston, MA, this record is polished and persuasive. But also delicate and direct—more aspects of Stephen’s ability to pull back the curtain of his world and let you in.

 

With an east coast tour in the works for mid-2018, and continued shows from NYC to Albany, NY, Stephen is eager to bring this album into people’s lives. Check the relatable lyrics in the upbeat and sensitive song “Why I Belong Here”. Or the advice given over REM-like acoustic chords in “My Old Friends”. And then the almost-toy-sounding-synth on the personally confessional “The Easy Come and Go”—Stephen covers being in your early twenties in an alluring but odd way, wondering what it all may mean, with a little bit of power pop, disco, 1980s synth, and even some musical theater thrown in for good measure.

Ivar Sigurbergsson

 

Ivar Sigurbergsson

Ivar, a musician and songwriter, has been a member of several bands but works independently today.

He was born in Iceland on a small volcanic island in the year when the Beatles released their first album. When he was ten years old, he and his family moved to escape the volcanic eruption.

At the same age, he learned his first guitar chords. That was the beginning of his musical career. Ivar and his friends founded their first band when he was about thirteen years old. They named the band “Make It” and often played at school dances. He and his friends would rehearse in the basement of his parents’ house. Many musicians rehearsed with them there. The best known of them was the Icelandic musician, Bjork.

As a teenager, Ivar studied both the classical guitar and the electric guitar. He later took some private classical piano lessons. For a while afterwards, he taught students to play the keyboard and guitar. Ivar went on to graduate from university with a B.Ed. degree.

As a schoolteacher, he has taught music education at public primary schools for several years.

Music is Ivar’s life and passion. He is a songwriter, a singer, and a guitar and keyboard player. The musical genre he plays could probably be classified as indie pop music. In addition, he enjoys listening to all kinds of music. Some of the musicians he appreciates include Bach, Paco de Lucia, Santana, U2, Bryan Ferry, Coldplay, and Adele. More than anything else, he enjoys producing music and playing for those who enjoy his music.

Ivar won The Akademia Music Award for Best Pop Song for ‘All The Colours’ in the April 2018 Akademia Music Awards!
