Introducing // 2-20

As you well know, I get sent ALOT of new music weekly, it takes me a little while to get through everything.

This morning while listening to potential tracks for this weekend’s First Play I stumbled across this guy! I’m always excited to hear something out of the ordinary coming out of the music scene in Ireland.

Seriously, this dude has got talent!

Here’s a little bit about 2-20:

He’s a 19-year-old Hip-hop artist from Sligo. He began making music at a young age taking inspiration from acts like 50 cent , Mac Miller and the Beatles.

His style can be hard to categorise to just one genre as he prides himself on being versatile with his creativity. Lyricism, flow and deep content are all things you will find if you submerse yourself in his music.

He his currently unsigned and fully independent. The song below is his latest single “Created” which is available on all major music platforms. It is a mixture of house and HipHop.

Introducing FarHaven

I had the absolute pleasure of hosting Hootananny at The Barrelstore in Carrick on Shannon Friday night (June 16th). It was a fantastic night showcasing some of the most incredible live bands from around the country. Totally in my element!

First to take to the stage on the night were Tipperary band FarHaven, amazingly talented guys with incredible harmonies. I was super impressed and they’ll be instantly added to the First Play playlist. They’ve recently returned to Ireland and have many residencies around the country. Give them a follow on social media to find out where you can catch them. No doubt this track will be #OnRepeat

D-Day studio session

When it comes to Irish music I absolutely love seeking out the freshest new bands. I was delighted to invite D-Day into iRadio to play some brand new tunes. An incredibly  hard working bunch of lads from the West of Ireland, they’ll no doubt be playing loads of festival over the coming months. You should definitely get your ass to see them at some stage.

Actually….. They’re playing this coming Friday in The Loft Venue, Seven in Galway.

Best of luck to the guys, it was a pleasure having them in and as always I’ll be keeping you updated in their success.
