Ivan Ave (NO) – Saturday 27th October / Driv
28 year old Ivan Ave from Vinje inTelemark, has been a stand-out voice in the hip-hop underground, both abroad and in Norway.
After releaseing the much praised EP «Low Jams» in 2016, he toured at festivals all over Europe and had a great year, also releasing his debutalbum «Helping Hands»
In 2017 he released his second album «Every Eye» which was praised by critics, also earning him a nomination for Spellemannsprisen. This work also led to coop’s with known producers like Kaytranada, Kiefer (Leaving Records), Mndsgn (Stones Throw) and Like (Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak). Pretty good company…
When performing live, Ivan Ave is joined by a team of talented musicians, presenting charming, danceable beats, with a flow reminiscent of Frank Ocean and a more velvety version of, dare we say it, the legend Guru (R.I.P).
