It’s been two years since Awate has released any music content. After gaining support from MOBO and SBTV, the young Camden native gets conscious ahead of the announcement of his LP ‘Happiness’.
With a transcript from revolutionist Fred Hampton, Awate‘s music video is a grim look into the life of living in a ghetto, using a prison-like concept that sees him signing at a squatted police station whilst being on bail. With seventies horns against his politically-conscious lyrics, Awate doesn’t shy himself from the current principalities that are affecting London – including gentrification. Having already performed at the Great Escape Firsty Fifty event and the intimate side for size? Awate has gradually been building upon the momentum that he’s has gained after releasing ‘Fly’, ‘Jewels’ and ‘Out Here’ with 14k views. The new LP follows from his 2016 ‘Shine Ancient’ that earned features with Complex and OkayAfrica. If that wasn’t enough, he’ll be having an album launch on the 22nd February next year. So go get those tickets.
