1. MuRli – ‘Both Sides’


God Knows and mynameisjOhn’s secret weapon releases his own EP of boom bap rap.

My favourite Irish act of 2014 is undoubtedly, God Knows and mynameisjOhn, the Limerick and Clare rap duo who released the best Irish album of the year (no Choice) in Rusangano Family.

If you’ve dug deeper and seen the boys live then you’ll know, it’s not just the frenetic work of a duo but a trio, the unnamed MuRli serves as the wingman, the fellow MC and is a key part of the energy that makes God Knows and mynameisjOhn’s stage show the best thing going in Ireland right now.

The 24 year-old Togolese MuRli now gets his own time in the spotlight with a new 7-track EP where he’s running things featuring production from mynameisjOhn and Naïve Ted.

The EP serves as a nice companion piece to Rusangano Family but also allows MuRli to establish himself through tracks like ‘Both Sides’ with its “you don’t have to be like me / I don’t have to be like you” mantra a frequent track in the live set.
