Diplo and Octavian team up for new chilled-out track ‘New Shapes’
From his 2018 collaboration with the rising afrobeat artist Burna Boy to his earliest Major Lazer work, Diplo‘s penchant for finding emerging international talent is no secret. Continuing this trend, the superstar DJ and producer has just released “New Shapes,” a track featuring the UK-based hip hop artist, Octavian.
Working with Mura Masa and receiving a remix from Ross From Friends in 2018, Octavian is no stranger to working alongside electronic production. He brings his subdued bars to a chilled out beat, with intricate yet subtle percussion encasing the chorus. A heartfelt offering from the two artists, the airy vibe is a departure from both of their signature styles. His second international collaboration this year, Diplo’s pursuit of artists from across the pond shows no sign of stopping any time soon.
