In an era that has been inundated with predictable hooks, and verses with about as much lyrical complexity as a children’s nursery rhyme, it has become paramount that we shed light on the artists going against the grain. Avelino is one such artist. Avelino who hails out of Tottenham North London, has been putting in work since the release of his debut mixtape last year Iconic Ambition. The lead track from the mixtape (No Comment) even featured multi MOBO award winner Stormzy and this year’s Newcomer of the year MOBO nominee Bonkaz. So if Avelino is keeping this sort of company he must surely be earmarked for a stratospheric rise in the not too distant future.


Aside from his mixtape, Avelino has been stamping his mark all over the UKs leading urban music outlets and has had several music videos featured on Link Up TV which have garnered well over half a million views. Avelino’s music has also appeared on GRM Daily where he covered popular Bryson Tiller Song Sorry not sorry and can be seen showcasing his lyrical prowess on their popular Youtube series Daily Duppy. Most recently he was a guest on the hugely popular Radio 1xtra show Fire in The Booth hosted by Charlie Sloth. It only hit the web a few weeks ago and it is already being touted as the best Fire In The Booth of the year. He has since followed this up with a joint Fire in the Booth with fellow lyrical heavyweight Wretch 32, which is jam packed with more lyrical content than certain artists’ entire discographies. Somewhere in between the lyrical master class by the two MCs, they announced a joint mixtape entitled Young Fire, Old Flame.
