Kojaque’s ‘WifiCode’ marked an artist who was growing increasingly comfortable being a publicly visible artist after a few years of hiding in the Youtube and Soundcloud shadows.

It was also his most direct tune.

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.

Kojaque is a Dublin rapper who has been making music for several years via Youtube videos and Soundcloud posts. His style is downbeat, jazzy and suited to late-night lounging.

Last week, he followed up his involvement in the Soft Boy mixtape and his Sunday Roast mixtape with ‘Wifi Code’ a song that feels like a transition beyond the comfort of the online space.

“The only man on a label still on Dublin bus,” he raps on an urgent piano beat.
