Awate is a rapper and producer from Maiden Lane Estate in Camden. Having started out at the age of 12, from the same school as Ms. Dynamite, Akala and Faith SFX, he started collaborating and performing, tearing down legendary hip-hop spot, Deal Real at the age of 15. A refugee, Awate's music touches on subjects like identity, history, racism and pride.

First featured on DJ Semtex's BBC 1Xtra show, Awate toured worldwide with emcee, Lowkey for four years and has supported the likes of Jay Electronica and Smif n Wessun, whilst performing regularly at The Roundhouse as part of his residency at the iconic venue.

Using the dusty, psychedelic funk and soul samples provided by Dcypha label head, Turkish, Awate's first release, long awaited by fans such as Idris Elba and Yasiin Bey, is the debut EP, 'Shine Ancient', out now.
