A one year anniversary show with full live band
In celebration of the one year anniversary of his critically acclaimed release, Deli Daydreams, Kojaque will perform the Choice Music Prize nominated album live with full band at an intimate show in Whelan’s Dublin on Saturday February 23, 2019.
Dublin rapper Kojaque is an artist steadily gaining ground on the Irish and international music scene, thanks to his production style, stunning visuals, and biting lyrics. Co-founder of independent label Soft Boy Records, Kojaque mixes sampling and jazz beats with dynamic, poetic lyrics, showcasing life as a modern Dubliner.
An established film-maker and visual artist as well as a musician, Kojaque’s multi-media performances and projects are unlike anything else in Irish hip-hop; brutal, honest, and beautiful at once. With a vast range of work produced both independently and with Soft Boy Records, his influences range from MF DOOM to Stevie Wonder. Kojaque has worked with notable Irish producers such as JarJarJr, GAPTOOF, and Wastefellow, and his influence on Irish hip-hop is palpable.
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.
Tickets for the Whelan’s gig cost from €21.00 and go on sale Monday February 11 at 9am.
