Hip Hop // Drimnagh, Dublin // He/Him

As Irish hip-hop continues to blossom with each passing year, artists like Fynch are beginning to come to the fore for national and international audiences. Combining cutting social commentary with self-deprecation and a healthy dose of braggadocio via obscure footballer references, FYNCH is an Irish hip-hop artist whose star is steadily rising.

FYNCH has been releasing music since mid-2017, taking inspiration from a variety of Irish and international artists including The Streets, Republic Of Loose, Kendrick Lamar and Outkast. FYNCH co-founded the record label Burner Records in 2018 alongside ARBU, Local Boy, Marcus Woods and Muttonhead.

The Drimnagh rapper released his first EP - Bookies Pens & Loose Ends - in October 2019 to acclaim. Since then, Fynch has had a consistent release schedule, collaborating with the likes of Local Boy, 49th & Main, Gaptoof and Willhouse.

2023 saw the return of the Drimnagh MC, with the release of singles ‘Ceilings’, ‘Now Do A Silly One!’, 'Main Road Woes' as well as ‘Uncut Gems’, a collaboration with Odd Numbers.

Fynch’s debut album 'Youngfella' was released to acclaim on March 1st 2024.

In his burgeoning career, FYNCH has supported the likes of Wiki, Mango X MathMan, Gemma Dunleavy, The Mouse Outfit, Lowkey and Slum Village.

> Cailean Coffey - GoldenPlec - 'Fynch is an icon. The Drimnagh rapper, creative, and Burner Record co-founder has been a key component and personality of the Irish hip-hop scene ever since he decided to pick up a mic at the age of 21 in 2017.'

> District Magazine - 'We’ve said this before, but from the first time ‘burner.’ landed in our inbox it was clear FYNCH had all of the things we love about Irish hip hop.'

> Nialler9 - 'Drimnagh rapper Fynch is indebted to his locality, and he proudly displays on the album Youngfella, a stream of colloquial references like the 27 bus, as on ‘The State’ – “a D-Unit dweller / a box room baby / can’t understand cash but get Forex Trading”, a fine example of Fynch’s understated rap-style.'

> Hot Press - 'Fynch is a rising star in Irish rap.'

> The Thin Air - 'The football references on Burner Records’ Fynch’s latest track are so self-referential, doubling themselves over and doing bicycle kicks, that my brain hurt trying to compute them fully...
it's a solid introduction to FYNCH, a smart writer who cares equally about what he says as how he says it.'

> - 'If you're unfamiliar with Dublin rapper FYNCH, it's time to change that... FYNCH is clearly informed by the world around him, asking difficult questions at a still-formative and highly uncertain time.'

> Soul Doubt Magazine - 'The Drimnagh native’s skilled lyricism and in-depth content packs a punch... Fynch allows us to peer into the uncertain world of an up-and-coming musician, delivered through crafty beats and thought-provoking bars.'

> Totally Dublin - 'Taking hazy lo-fi sensibilities and peeling them back to the absolute elements, drone-tone wordsmith FYNCH enters his element with 'Bookies Pens and Loose Ends', especially on the likes of 'Like Me', a heavy drag through the anxieties of Generation Y, both for its future and within the second spaces we’ve made for ourselves.'

> EARMILK - Bookies Pens & Loose Ends (8.5) - '[Bookies Pens & Loose Ends] is beautiful and it is what will become known as the start of one of our great commentators in this Irish hip-hop culture of ours. I think it would be absolutely criminal to let this project go under your radar

> The Echo - 'Offering a peek into the post-academic struggles that many face in Ireland, Drimnagh rapper Fynch has released an EP that is him, in his rawest form.'
