Octavian made waves on the internet last year with his viral hit “Party Here,” which earned him an early co-sign from Drake.

U.K. rapper Octavian just released his debut mixtape, Spaceman, one of the most anticipated projects of the year.

After Drake posted a video of himself rapping along to the rapper’s viral hit “Party Here” at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, then Louis Vuitton’s artistic director, Virgil Abloh, flew Octavian to Paris to walk in his first runway show, the East London artist became the talk of the music industry town.

Co-signs aside, Octavian’s music stands alone. His gritty yet smooth vocals fused with club-friendly melodies and lyrics with just-enough depth to pique interest in rap fans unfamiliar with the UK sound— one that clearly inspires American counterparts like Drizzy.

The 14-track project includes the single “Revenge,” which was released last week, but his earlier tracks”Party Here” and “Little” do not appear on the tape.
