On February 1, a leaked video for a brand new Octavian track ‘Bet’ hit the internet. Featuring fellow Essie Gang member Michael Phantom, the track and video quickly became a word of mouth anthem, leading a flurry of fans and artists joining in the #OKBETCHALLENGE.
The ‘Bet’ story continues with UK legend Skepta adding a signature verse to the track and joining the 23-year-old, Phantom and the rest of Essie Gang on a Armin Druzanovic-directed video.

Following an incredible 2018, which saw Octavian make the transition from highly rated underground prospect to becoming one of the most exciting, vital new voices in UK music, the London rapper and producer has taken things to a whole new level in 2019.
Starting the year by winning the coveted BBC Sound Of 2019 poll, he quickly followed up with brand new music including transatlantic collaborations with some of the biggest production names around including Take A Daytrip (famed for their production for the likes of Sheck Wes’s Mo Bamba) on ‘Stressed’, and Diplo on ‘New Shapes’.
