Since the release of his debut album ‘Stride’, Jafaris has seen huge support from Radio 1 (Annie Mac), Kiss, Spotify and press, including NME who described Jafaris as one of the most exciting new prospects from Irish rap’s rising wave. Last week, he performed on BBC Later With Jools Holland alongside collaborator Joy Crookes.

A vocal graduate, Melina’s early music is awash with classic US Soul influence often compared to Neo Soul trailblazers Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and D’Angelo. Following the years after graduating from college, Melina has been developing her skills as an artist, collaborating iin 2018 with Mango x Mathman, Diffusion Lab, The RTÉ Concert Orchestra and more. Her newest venture is a bustling electro-soul fusion with fellow Dublin musician and producer Steven McCann (Booka Brass, TooFools, JYellowL) which infuses a fresh electronic R&B twist to Melina’s soulful roots akin to the likes of NAO, Tom Misch and Kaytranada.

God Knows

God Knows is rapidly becoming one of the most electrifying souls in music in Ireland. An MC with no concern for boundaries, he has consistently smashed all live-shows and guest appearances around the country. Along with being the founding member of Shannon's Random Acts Of Kindness collective and one third of Rusangano Family, his unique MC fusion of grime, rap and spoken word has firmly established him as one of the most formidable front-men in Ireland.

Denise Chaila

Denise Chaila is an Afro-Diasporan rapper, singer and poet. She hails from Chikankata, Zambia and is now based in Limerick, Ireland. Her music blends spoken word and rap to give voice to a transatlantic odyssey exploring identity, belonging, and home from the heart and mind of a diasporan dreamer. She uses her hyphenated identities to weave a narrative spanning continents, cultures and genres to “make space for what doesn’t yet ‘make sense’”. Her music marries art with a passion for justice and social change to build space for often forgotten stories and voices in dynamic and compelling ways.. Her unique take on rap and spoken word has firmly established her as one of the most important voices in Ireland.

Thursday 28th November

Nealo + Tebi Rex, Pat Lagoon @ The Well

Nealo is a hip hop artist cut from a different cloth. Having spent 10 years touring in hardcore punk bands, he settled down, got married and went off to college to get a law degree. After a few years working in a solicitors firm, he heard the calling to return to music, but this time in a completely different way.

The Dublin born rapper & singer began making beats and writing lyrics in 2018 as a form of catharsis to find a home for his thoughts and poems on paper. Over the course of the next few months he managed to sell out 3 headline Dublin shows and finished the year closing the Dublin Literary Festival in a memorable night in the GPO. Nealo’s laid back blend of introspective hip hop over jazz influenced beats is a complete contrast to what you would expect from an ex hardcore punk vocalist, but it has worked its magic to carve him out a loyal following, in Dublin.
