Kojaque & Luka Palm heat things up on new ‘Green Diesel’ project.

Kojaque and Luka Palm are back with a brand new project called Green Diesel. The pair have collaborated in the past, notably on ‘Politicksis‘ from Deli Daydreams & more recently in singles ‘Date Night’ and ‘Airbnb’, both of which feature on the new album alongside 6 brand new tracks.

The pairs natural chemistry which comes across so easily on stage really transfers to the new project with the two swapping bars throughout. The record seems to be a more confident step out, less introspective than Deli Daydreams it brings a little less love and a little more braggadocio to the table.

Featuring production from long time collaborators Kean Kavanagh & Gaptoof plus newcomers Matt Finnegan, CHLOBOCOP and New Machine the record is a step in a new direction for the Soft Boy crew incorporating lo-fi and modern beats with fast flowing dynamic vocals.

Kojaque and Luka Palm start a nationwide tour later this month before heading off around Europe to support UK rapper slowthai.

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.‬
