Kojaque announces Whelan’s headline show with Kean Kavanagh

It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since Kojaque dropped his debut album, Deli Daydreams’The 12 months since the sold out launch in The Button Factory has been a rollercoaster for the Cabra native, skyrocketing him to the forefront of the Irish hip-hop scene alongside his Soft Boy label mates. 

Deli Daydreams is one of the favourites to win the 2018 Choice Music Prize, and the wider world is starting to take notice. After playing a ton of festivals over the summer months, Kojaque embarked on his first solo tour of Ireland and the UK (which completely sold out). Slots at Eurosonic and SXSW are undoubtedly going to lead to much bigger things too. 

Collaboration seems to be at the heart of the Soft Boy ethos, complimenting each other artistically and cross promoting all of their releases to an ever growing fan base. Last year’s single Date Night features Luka Palm, another name to keep a close eye on. His performance at the sold out Academy show in December is still fresh in my memory, displaying an ability to hold a crowd that performers twice his age would kill for. 

Another regular collaborator, Kean Kavanagh, has been branching out lately with some really impressive solo tracks. The two also recently worked together on illustrator ‘Gangster Doodles’ new project with All City Records.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the album, Kojaque will perform the project in its entirety with a full band in Whelan’s on Saturday February 23, with Kean Kavanagh on support.‬ This could be your last chance to see the Dublin rapper in such an intimate setting. ‪Tickets are €21 and go on sale Monday Feb 11 at 9am.‬

Video: New Secret Weapon – Epic of Gilgamesh

newsecretweapon

New Secret Weapon have released a new live video for their track ‘Epic of Gilgamesh’ filmed at a recent show in Dublin’s Button Factory. Titled after the ancient Mesopotamian poem (basically the prequel to the Bible) and clocking in at 7 minutes and 30 seconds it certainly is an epic by today’s standards.

The band have just gotten back from Chicago where they were recording the follow up to their 2014 self titled début with legendary producer Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Mogwai and too many more to name) in his famed Electrical Audio Studios. The album will be released some time next year.

To tide us over, New Secret Weapon will be announcing a special Christmas show in a secret Dublin City Center location. Stay tuned for details!
