Lowkick are a Dublin-based trio blending traditional hip-hop with neo-classical and jazz elements to create a refreshing new sound in Irish rap. With a commitment to crafting each instrumental from scratch, they focus on collaborative songwriting that plays to all of their strengths. Lowkick's DIY attitude and all-encompassing live shows have positioned them well to make an impact in 2023.
All three members of the group attended school at Mount Temple Comprehensive in North Dublin before deciding to come together and make music. After three years of working together, the group has gathered a small but loyal following in Dublin, becoming known for exciting and engaging live shows, notably playing to sold-out crowds in the Workman’s cellar and main room along with headline shows in the Grand Social and Bello Bar.
2022 was a successful year for Lowkick, garnering support from Nialler9, HotPress, District Magazine, and Goldenplec. The group's self-titled EP caught the attention of crowds across Dublin, allowing the group to stay incredibly busy on the live circuit. Lowkick's tireless work ethic culminated in a support show with Jeshi, one of the group's inspirations. A live band has been added to Lowkick's arsenal, taking the shows up to another level.
2023 is set to be another busy year for the group, who have plans in place for their debut album. The group hope to feature heavily on the festival circuit this Summer and will be supporting the legendary Lord Apex at The Workman's Club in May. Plans are in place for the group's first show in the UK, having recently teamed up with London-based rapper Half-pipe on a soon-to-be-released single. Alongside the group's plans in the live scene, they have been quietly adding to their ever-growing unreleased discography, constantly evolving their sound and fine-tuning every last detail.
