Today, Dublin rapper Damola drops his latest single, 'Critical'. On the track, Damola describes his journey as a musical artist and expresses his desire to win going forward. That desire to conquer is depicted in a manner that is reminiscent of warfare. It's a tale of mankind's desire for power recounted over an experimental trap instrumental.
The track sees the Dublin rapper experimenting with his vocals and demonstrating a new approach to mixing and mastering. 'Critical' is off Damola's forthcoming EP, SAFE, which is set for release on 22 November. This is the second single off SAFE, following the summer release of 'Gave Myself'.
After emerging in the scene in 2008, Damola has become of the most convincing voices in the Irish hip-hop boom. After a string of well-received singles, the Dublin rapper is back with a brand new single ‘Gave Myself’.
Previous singles ‘Glory’, ‘Workflow’, ‘Snoozing’ and this year’s ‘This One’ garnered significant buzz around Damola and earned him coveted spots on Spotify’s New Eire playlist, as well as airplay on 98fm, RTE 2fm and RTE Pulse. His diverse approach to his music has also resulted in lauded collaborations with the likes of Katie Laffan and Local Boy. He was also a member of the BackShed Inc music collective, which also featured Sam Ojo, Ange MC and Ama.
With previous performances at Electric Picnic, Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes and Sofar Sounds, as well as an Obie Trice support slot, under his belt, Damola has also earned a reputation for his fiery live shows.
