Come party and raise money for the Refugee Crisis.
This Friday, we're hosting a very special one-off IRL event at Wigwam in Dublin to raise funds in aid of the Refugee Crisis. Things are really bad in Europe right now, Refugees are stranded in unsafe inadequate camps and being treated like pariahs while our governments do nothing.
We decided to come together with a few of our close Dublin friends to raise money and awareness, while putting on a good show and showcasing some of the best talent the city has to offer. To accompany the night of music, homegrown art collective Peachy will be throwing a mini pop-up print exhibition on the theme of 'No Borders' where they'll be selling prints of the work shown on the night, so head down early!
Gemma Dunleavy is easily one of our favourite artists in Dublin right now. Blending futuristic, poppy beats with deep, soulful vocals, you've probably heard her amazing vocal work on the Jasmine EP, her joint release with Murlo. Dunleavy has been the go-to vocalist for some of the best producers for the past few years and with the quality of her output, it's really easy to see why.
BOBBY BASIL x WASTEFELLOW
Hotly tipped rapper / producer duo Bobby Basil and Wastefellow make eccentric, fresh hip hop with out-there beats and sharp lyrics. You might know Bobby as one half of Dah Jevu, while Wastefellow has been making a name for himself as a dope solo producer, playing all over Dublin and recently releasing the Amazed, A Maze EP.
We've been obsessed with the pair since we first heard G-Train last year so we're particularly happy to present Bobby Basil and Wastefellow's first live show together at No Borders.
Mythill Grim's introspective take on hip hop is the perfect soundtrack to Dublin by night. With a fresh, unpredictable style and slick storytelling abilities, Grim is currently one of the most interesting voices in Irish hip hop and definitely one of our favourites.
Having released numerous gems this passed year, Mythill Grim's work is consistently dark, brooding, gold. He recently owned live performances supporting Pharcyde, and at Electric Picnic, we're really excited to see what he brings to this Friday.
One night this summer, in the middle of a forest at a rainy Irish festival, when all seemed lost and the night appeared to be drawing to a close, we unexpectedly caught Bobofunk play one of the most fun sets we've ever experienced.
Easily one of the best party DJ’s in Dublin, Bobofunk plays the perfect blend of hip hop, grime and club music. His taste is next level and we look forward to having him close out No Borders.
There's more info on the facebook event, and even if you can't make it out, please DONATE HERE. 100% of all money given goes directly to Help Refugees, an amazing grassroots organisation that we personally spent time working with and who are making a real difference on the ground in camps across Europe.
