My Current Addictions – Ivan Ave & Mutual Intentions

My brother recently introduced me to the work of Norwegian hip hop artist Ivan Ave. Ivan is an artist working with both Jakarta Records (out of Berlin) and Mutual Intentions (an Oslo-based label).

Mutual Intentions just released their second crew compilation: Mutual Intentions #2 (stream the compilation below). There are several notable artists on this compilation. Ivan’s track Yours Truly highlights his lyricism and crisp classic flow. My favorite thing on this album, however, was the track produced by Ol’ Burger Beats –  It’s Black Remix – featuring Jeremiah Jae and Oliver The 2nd on the rhymes.

In addition to his tracks on Mutual Intentions #2, Ivan recently dropped, Also, co-produced by Kaytranada and Kiefer:

Mutual Intentions is a collective composed of Ivan Ave, Fredfades, SRAW, Yogisoul, Ol’ Burger Beats, John Rice, photographer Moe Chakiri, videographer Erik Treimann, designer Hans Jørgen Wærner and manager Stian Nicolaysen.
