For his latest project on affiliated label Soft Boy Records, Deli Daydreams, Kojaque takes it back to the laid-back sound of his beginning with a conceptual project ” chronicling a week in the life of a Deli worker” across eight tracks.
This is the first track from it – ‘Bubby’s Cream’ accompanied with a video
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.
Soft World, a short 20 minute compilation is billed as an ode to sampling.
The 11-track Bandcamp tape was arranged by SoftBoy Records founders Kojaque and Kean Kavanagh and features some hip-hop beat productions from Ireland from the likes of Wastefellow, Brame. Jar Jar Jr, MAtt Finnegan and the boys themselves. Check it out here with some recognisable samples.
‘Out For Donutz’, his latest featuring a beat by Limerick producer IAMIAN, puts his brain to a track, detailing the things that races through it on a late-night train homeward bound with a nod to the greatest.
