Despite his young age, 23, Avelino is already an old hand in the UK rap game, a game he has played since 2008. But the spotlights only found the young man from Tottenham after the release of his excellent 2014 mixtape. Rightful heir to Ghostpoet and Roots Manuva, Avelino’s soul influences are infused with a rare elegance, making him the best potential companion to James Blake. Thus, before fantasising about his future, this year’s festival will be the occasion to bask in his present aura.
