Octavian is one of the hottest names coming out of the U.K. right now. He garnered a heavy buzz in the past few years but the release of his mixtape, Spaceman propelled his career to new heights. The U.K. sensation linked up with Take A Daytrip in January for “Stressed.” Now, he links up with Diplo for their new collab, “New Shape.”
Diplo and Octavian come through with some smooth vibes on “New Shape.” The song serves as the latest single off of Diplo’s forthcoming project, Europa.
“I met Octavian at a party in London,” Diplo said in a statement. “We took a photo and I never thought I would see the kid again. Over the next six months I kept hearing his name and seeing him on great songs… Finally, he was stuck in L.A. for a while and it was easy to pull up on him. After a few weeks we nailed this song and I’m glad it gets to finally see the light of day.”
