Bobby Basil (real name Isaac McGuinness) is a hip-hop
artist from Ireland. The part-Carribean, Dublin-raised
rapper first arrived on the scene in 2014 as one half of
alternative hip-hop duo, Dah Jevu. The group rose to
national fame almost overnight with their dark lyrics,
off-kilter beats and cinematic music videos bringing a
whole new energy to the Irish hip-hop scene. In 2016
Pitchfork wrote, "The pair makes bleak, hard music that
serves as a medium to decry racism.” on their politically
charged music video for ‘Incubus’ which received
worldwide critical acclaim.
Post-conclusion of Dah Jevu following Chris Montana's emigration to Canada, Bobby returned in 2016
with G Train and Poppy Bellah, and following up with Come Down to Me and I Don't Get Enough,
showcasing a much more colourful sound pairing
melodic trap infected production with playful lyrics and
catchy hooks.
Although Bobby’s sound became more accessible after Dah
Jevu he still approaches song writing with a no-filter
approach, never being afraid to touch on private subjects
such as strained family relationships and his own
vulnerable thoughts and insecurities. It’s this point
blank honesty which gives Bobby’s music its edge.
