After setting Ireland’s underground alight with their eclectic fusion of hip-hop and rock, Cork’s Rex Arcum and Syano release their joint effort EP “COMPOUND”. Having been featured on Spotify’s Misfits 2.0, RTÉ and Nialler 9 with the EP’s lead single “LOTTO BOY”, the pair of rising artists are certainly ones to watch from the Emerald Isle.
The EP mirrors Rex Arcum and Syano’s live shows, driven by creative hip-hop samples and monstrous 808’s which are seamlessly blended with distorted guitar, gritty drums and powerful vocals. With tracks featuring Nashville’s MNERVA, Brampton’s Spitty, Cork’s LG4 Ness and mixed/mastered by Brody (Nothing, Nowhere., Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, Freddie Dredd), this genre defiant EP expels unfiltered frustration and emotion as it tackles a host of negative aspects seen in society in Ireland.
Having kicked off 2023 with a sold-out headline gig in Fred Zeppelin’s Cork, as well as performing at a packed out Cork Rising in Cyprus Avenue and Absent Hip-Hop Night in Galway. Rex Arcum is touring Ireland in September with major support acts to be announced, it will be an explosive tour that’s not to be missed.
