Rising star Dave recently sat in for Julie Adenuga on Apple Music’s Beats 1; while there, he brought on Fraser T Smith and Avelino and spoke on a variety of topics (from Drake’s influence to Stormzy’s success and more). Check it out here.
In addition to Avelino breaking out a dope rendition of Chance The Rapper’s ‘All Night’, the North Londoner (along with the band who accompanied him) also blessed the viewers/listeners with a cover of Calvin Harris, Frank Ocean, and Migos’ collaboration ‘Slide’.
Avelino’s white-hot new single with Stormzy and Skepta gets a dope visual to boot. Check out the clip for ‘Energy’ above and pick up the single here.
Avelino definitely has a big single on his hands right now. Following it’s premiere on BBC 1Xtra, fans can now stream the track ‘Energy’, which sees the rising star linked with fellow Tottenham giant Skepta and South London’s Stormzy.
Check out the track below and purchase here.
This is dope: earlier this week saw Avelino dropping off a new track titled ‘Outstanding & Outrageous’, which features Bobii Lewis and sees production from Acekeyz. Check it out above.
For his latest, DJ/producer Diztortion links with Tottenham’s Avelino for the new track ‘On A Wave’. Stream below and pick up the single via iTunes.
This is dope. We’ve been following the growing New Gen movement for a while now, and it’s now materialising into an actual compilation thanks to XL Recordings. This forthcoming project (described as being “anchored in the half space between trap, grime and new wave R&B, the melting pot which has typically come to represent the New Gen sound”) will feature appearances from the usual suspects: Bonkaz, AJ Tracey, Stormzy, Kojey Radical, J Hus, Ray Blk, Chip and more.
Above, you can check out the visual for the first track on the album titled ‘Ring The Alarm’, which features Avelino and Tiggs Da Author. The clip centres upon Frank Critchlow’s Mangrove Restaurant in Notting Hill (the well-known haven for Blacks was eventually shut down in the 90’s thanks to gentrification…and the police). Major points to director Chris Grey for this.
You can also check out more from the New Gen movement here. NEW GEN drops 25th November.
Tottenham connect. Avelino and Abra Cadabra join forces in the new visual for the heater ‘On A Roll’.
Mr. Young Fire Avelino is back with a new visual for ‘Late Nights In The 15’, which sees the emcee back in his stomping grounds reflecting on his music career. Check that out above; in related news, Avelino will be headlining a show at Hoxton Sqaure at the end of this month.
For his latest, Avelino speaks his mind about the recent U.S. tragedies over CallMeTheKidd production. Check out ‘The World Is Watching’ above.
