Avelino announces the release of ‘No Bullshit‘ – and you can listen to track ‘1 In a Million‘ now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Following the explosive release of single ‘Energy‘ (FIFA 18 Soundtrack) featuring long-time friends Stormzy and Skepta, the 12-track playlist affirms Avelino’s status as one of the finest MC’s to grace the scene.
Taster-track ‘Origami‘ set the precedent with its release earlier this summer; a song of two-halves, it’s a melding pot of hip hop, grime and jazz timbres that sees the demiurgic rapper flit seamlessly from spitting bars to sung melodies.
It’s this attitude that has seen the 24-year-old amass accolades from peers, media and fans alike since his rise to notoriety with mixtape Iconic ‘Ambition‘ in 2014; including Best Newcomer nomination at the MOBO Awards, named on BBC 1Xtra’s Hot for 2017 list and his lauded ‘Fire In The Booth‘ sitting at over half a million views.
Additionally, Avelino’s FITB with Wretch 32, under their moniker of Young Fire Old Flame has remarkably amassed over 9 million views, making it one of the most watched in the history of the series.
Described as a “playlist”, Avelino envisions ‘No Bullshit’ as a fluid concept; a project that can mature and change shape over time, bucking the penitentiary of the traditional album format.
