Word Up Collective bring together, for the first time, a number of artists who have been working independently and in existing groups to present a snap shot of Ireland’s burgeoning hip-hop and urban music scene. From rap to pop, soul to RnB and spoken word, the Word Up artists are all pushing boundaries individually and are now coming together to take their work to even greater heights.
In this episode, Word Up founders Annette and Phil Udell chat about the progression of urban and hip hop music in Ireland, their success with Spotify and watching artists develop over time.
They are joined on the show by Dafe, a rapper from the band Tebi Rex and spoken word artist Natalya O’Flaherty who discuss what Word Up does for them and how to get noticed when there is so much music out there. Plus music and words from both as well as Super Silly and Sequence.
Episode 2 will be aired at 13.00 on Monday 29th April and repeated at 13.00 on Wednesday 1st May on RTÉ 2XM.
