Rejjie Snow’s first full length album Dear Annie is finally on the way later this year and he’s been dropping previews of it over the last while including ‘Crooked Cops’, ‘Pink Beetle’ and ‘Drugs’.

His newest song ‘Flexin’ is produced by Rahki (Kendrick Lamar, Syd the Kid, Eminem), who is executive producing the album, and it is a low-end rap killer.

With only over two weeks to go to this year’s TV shoot and mini-festival event in Kerry, Other Voices is gearing up for a big weekend of music in Dingle. So far they’ve announced the first round of music trail of acts and the main church artists which include Lisa Hannigan, Rejjie Snow, Girl Band, Margaret Glaspy, Pixie Geldof and more, with some bigger names to be announced.

Those latter gigs take place from December 2nd to 4th in St. James’ Church. Tickets for which are allocated at random – Nialler9 is one of those places. Accommodation is already booked up in the entire town this year, so you should enter this if you have a place to crash already for the weekend, as these passes get you into the church for the TV recording on each night. Otherwise, you’ve got a fair bit of travel on your hands each night.

Enter here to win tickets before Tuesday:

Longitude Festival is this weekend in Marlay Park and as is customary here are the acts to highlight on your lists and timetables. 12 acts playing, 4 per day – you simply must see, according to Nialler9.



Friday, Heineken Stage, 17.30


Kelela is the owner of one of my favourite voices in music. The Los Angeles singer released a great mixtape Cut 4 Me and last year’s Hallucinogen EP cemented her status with one of the best songs of the year – ‘Rewind’ (there’s a fascinating Song Exploder about it). Recent appearances on tracks from Obey City and Clams Casino add to attraction.


Hare Squead

Friday, Heineken Stage, 14.45


From Tallaght promise to major label deal in less than two years, and they’re just getting started. As the band’s first proper single ‘If I Ask You’ shows, Tony Konstone, Jessy Rose and E-Knock are three lads as comfortable with R&B, pop and electronica as rapping. Live, they always bring a full live-band and a party atmosphere that veers from ramshackle to varying degrees of professionalism with energy and big smiles.


Kendrick Lamar

Friday, Main Stage, 21.15


Since the release of last year’s To Pimp A Butterfly, King Kendrick has been on a mission to show he means business live, enlisting the likes of Anna Wise and Thundercat for his band and delivering next level performances on late-night TV and the Grammys among others.

The last time he was in Ireland, at Vicar Street, he gave us a rap show of a high calibre, this time at Longitude, I feel he’s going to show just how far he has left his former self in the dust.



Friday, Red Bull Stage, 17.30


If you like your dance music robotic but with a touch of the real, get your ears around these dancefloor cuts from Adultrock. The Push And Pull EP is the latest release: electronic music with arpeggios, tough basslines and percussive sparkle, anchored by Gavin Elsted’s vocals. Live, it’s an all-analogue affair duo performing face to face. Gerrin.

Rejjie Snow’s ‘All Around The World’ might be the Dublin boy’s best track yet, an indication that he has found his sound after some time flitting between accents and names. Some industry backing has enabled Alex to rope in cameos from Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp. Amir LeGrone also features. The track, produced by Cam O’bi is a grower.

Directed by Noah Lee.

‘Black Pancakes’ is a new track from Rejjie Snow’s forthcoming mixtape coming in 2014, Dear Annie. The track is produced By Phedeee and the deliberately lo-fi video was shot by Albert Hooi & edited by Zachary Fudge. It’s a nice track, Alex Butler still sounds like he’s finding his sound though.

Taken from Rejjie Snow’s Rejovich EP, this is the video by Jamie Delaney for ‘Snow (My Rap Song)’.

The concept of the tongue in cheek video – directed by ‘Lost in Empathy’ collaborator and fellow Dublin resident, Jamie Delaney and shot in Paris – is built around the lyrics of the track; subverting the typical clichéd lyrics in rap music. As the title suggests, this is Rejjie’s interpretation of a ‘rap song’. The video follows a petulant Rejjie on a school trip, playing video games in an arcade, walking around Paris, dreaming of a life as a rap star.

After teaming up with Paris producer Andrea, and acting the albino on ‘Lost In Empathy’, Rejjie Snow is back with his debut EP proper Rejovich on June 24th, on the Kaya Kaya label.

The five track EP leads with ‘Loveleen’, a downbeat piano and beat track that has the hook “money / bitches / hoes/ greed / pussy / lord knows” and has Rejjie finding his own voice on the subsequent two and a half minutes. The rest of the EP features collaborators Jesse James and Loyle Carner.

Cruising EP Cover

Dublin’s Rejjie Snow has teamed up with Parisian producer Andrea for a track on the latter’s Cruising EP later this month. The track is a downbeat atmospheric track in the vein of Lapalux with Rejjie’s Dublin accent and roving lyrical style in full effect.

So Lecs Luther now Rejjie Snow seems ready to actually release some music again after an embarassing period of trolling the then-mystery of Flying Lotus’ alter ego Captain Murphy. But to his credit, his latest song ‘Lost In Empathy’ is a good one. And there’s an album called Rejovich on the way. Sure, it’s still indebted to the MF Doom / Tyler / Madlib venn diagram of rap but it’s a snug fit, and there’s even some Irish brogue to be heard in his rap.

The video by Jamie Delaney and premiered by Noisey is based on the “bizarre and brutal persecution of albinos in Tanzania.” You can catch Rejjie supporting Kendrick Lamar on Monday night in Vicar Street. Download ‘Lost In Empathy’ below:

Rejjie Snow – ‘Lost In Empathy’

Rejjie Snow

He first impressed us with ‘Dia Dhuit’ before working with the Rubberbandits and then throwing a curveball on a track where he sounded like Ghostpoet. Then Lecs changed his name to Rejjie Snow and says we can expect a collaboration with rising UK musician King Krule and Mmoths soon.

This new track ‘Meddling Loops’ is a jazzy smokey affair where Rejjie hooks up with Crave & Jesse James. The animated video is by Jitterbug.
