Possibly the most exciting, fast-rising Irish hip-hop artist Kojaque, is set to play Belfast's Limelight 2 on May 1.
It's over a year since the release of his game-changing debut LP Deli Daydreams - check out his statement on it: "Deli Daydreams is a conceptual project chronicling a week in the life of a Deli worker. The project meanders through the daydreams of KOJAQUE, the main protagonist, as he contemplates love, life and loneliness in the lead up to the annual work Christmas party. The project is a vignette of working life in Dublin, mundanity, madness and escapism."
Nominated for a Choice Music Prize, and placing high on near enough every Irish 2018 end of year list - including our own - the Soft Boy Records release is very much a zeitgeist-capturer. A filmmaker and visual artist, the videos for his singles have been as essential as the music in his upward growth - take 'White Noise', for example.
