The Hot Press Lockdown Sessions has entered a new phase with the launch of The Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
The Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series continues with a performance from Cen Manu – streaming live on the Hot Press Instagram tonight, July 8, at 7.30pm.
Cameroonian-Irish Afrobeat artist Cen Manu has rapidly established himself as a force to be reckoned with – founding his own record label, ALL-IN-1 Records, and launching his career with acclaimed singles 'DORE MIFASO' and 'DANCE'.
Continuing tonight with Cen Manu, The Y&E Series is shining a light on some of the best new and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer in 2020 – with 40 acts joining Hot Press on Instagram for special live performances across 40 consecutive days, thanks to the support of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Watch Cen Manu tonight, July 8, as part of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.

Thursday, 9 July: Uly
Combining a penchant for old-school soul, jazz and funk, Uly has built up a reputation as both a solo artist and a collaborator – founding his own independent label, andfriends. His highly anticipated second EP, if you were a day, you'd be sunday – songs to go walking to, is out later this month.
Friday, 10 July: CMAT
With her trademark charm, humour and staggering talent, CMAT has established herself as one of the most unique pop artists in the country. Following the release of her ecstatically-received debut single 'Another Day (kfc)', she recently returned with 'Rodney'.
