Catch the live-streamed performance tonight on the Hot Press Instagram!
Following stellar sets from Moncrieff, Carrie Baxter and Saarloos over the weekend, get ready for another powerful performance from one of the country's most hotly tipped talents on tonight's Hot Press Lockdown Sessions, brought to you by the sea-faring legends from Grace O'Malley Whiskey. Tonight, March 23, we're delighted to present Dublin rapper Malaki, live from the Hot Press Instagram at 19:30 GMT.
Selected as one of the Hot Press 'Hot For 2020' acts and Ticketmaster's 'New For 2020', Malaki is gearing up for a landmark year. With introspective lyrics, immersive production and a commanding live presence, the Irish rapper has captured the imagination of his generation. His stunning six-track EP Butterfly Boy, which premiered on Hot Press, tackled toxic masculinity, mental health and the state of Dublin, and was followed by an unforgettable sold-out headliner at The Academy 2.
His Whelan's gig, originally set to take place on March 21, has now been rescheduled for September 18, and upgraded to Opium – with limited tickets available now.
In the face of gig cancellations and restrictions, the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions, brought to you by Grace O'Malley Whiskey, allows you to enjoy live performances of your favourite artists, from the safety and comfort of your home.
Throughout the nightly series, our star-studded line-up will be taking over the Hot Press Instagram account (@hotpressmagazine), and live-streaming performances directly to you – wherever you might be!
We encourage anyone who enjoys Malaki's performance tonight to support him through this extremely difficult time for musicians by buying his music – as well as tickets for his highly anticipated September headliner.
Stay tuned for the full Hot Press Lockdown Sessions line-up, coming later today.
