I personally first heard Ivan Ave from a couple of collaborations that he did with Seattle hip-hop artist J’Von. This year we’re getting the debut LP from the Norwegian emcee called “Helping Hands” by way of Jakarta Records. The album produced entirely by Stone Throw producer Mndsgn has my ears ready for this project. A couple days ago the duo dropped “The Circle”. Ivan Ave. sounds at home over Mndsgn’s jazzy and spacey production. If you like the joint you can pre-order the album HERE and get two more joints from the duo with it.
