In a world of shuttered music venues and snatched-away opportunities, Ireland’s music community continues to defy the odds – with young, emerging artists defiantly rising above seemingly insurmountable challenges, and flying the flag for their country. This bold energy, independent ethos and genre-defying talent is evident across our list of Hot For 2021 Irish Acts – which features artists from every corner of Ireland.
Tipperary native GavinDaVinci relocated to Limerick in 2017, before producing his Mr MAAD The Inventor album. He’s been developing strongly since, self-producing 2019’s superscumbagmode. Having built a reputation for raucous shows he missed playing live in 2020, but unleashed the eerie head-fuck that is ‘Woopty Woop’. More of the same could deliver a big breakthrough.
Hear: ‘Council House Freestyle’
Watch: The intense video for ‘Sex & Parties’ ft. Hazey Haze.
