“We are both from Dublin and both live in Dublin and are proud of that. We are a spoke on the wheel of a cultural shift of the city and the nation that is happening right now. We want to represent that.”

 

Last night Mango and MathMan reminded everyone in Dublin, as if they had forgotten, what they’re all about.

The ‘Wheel Up’ EP has now arrived.

According to the rapper the new project features “non stop heavy, powerful tracks”.

“You can rave to these or cruise the city to them, go to the gym or commit a vast array of felonies to these records. The album will be more tempered with an over arching story, a mix of more genres and topics.”

Check out the EP below, with one feature, fellow Dublin rapper Dania.

With seemingly every track steeped in the culture of the capital, we asked Mango why his city is so integral to his sound.

“Dublin is important to our music because we were born here, we live here, it’s our culture. For years in Ireland, and especially in urban music, people have taken their inspirations and their tastes from either Britain or the US. While we have as well we realise the power and impact of the best music whether it’s hip hop, grime, or whatever is about its own surroundings. The artists life.

“We are both from Dublin and both live in Dublin and are proud of that. We are a spoke on the wheel of a cultural shift of the city and the nation that is happening right now. We want to represent that.”
