“If this is a simulation, why did you pick that character?”

PX music are on somewhat of a hot streak in 2019. It seems they’ve created a seemingly relentless release schedule coming in to the second half of 2019.

Reaffirming that narrative is GavinDaVinci, the Tipperary rapper has dropped ‘superscumbagmode’, a project that exudes the energy of a week long session.

Prior to this Citrus Fresh dropped a video for the first two tracks of his ‘Early Days/Late Nights‘ EP, ‘DiCaprio//Antenna’ at the end of August and Hazey Haze teased the first track, ‘This Is My City‘ from his forthcoming LP just over a week ago.

The Tipperary MC follows these efforts with an album that lives up to its name with plenty of filthy baselines, eerie samples and scumbag fuelled lyricism. The PX Music spitter had previously hinted at his output taking a murky turn with the brilliantly erratic ‘Sex & Parties‘ collaborative effort with Hazey Haze.

He’s recruited frequent collaborators such Aswell, Tamara Hall, Citrus, Hazey, DG, Clerk 5 and Mankyy to perfect what is his arguably his most complete work yet.

The Limerick lads seem to have made a seamless transition from party throwers to a more stream lined and organised label, cementing their place as one of the county’s most prolific outfits.

There’s a distinct and deliberate sound that frequently features in the output of those associated with PX music. The glitchy blend of drug-ridden lyrics and grimy production is becoming a staple of the label’s content and they are developing into a serious force to be reckoned with in the Irish hip hop scene, with GavDaVinci’s album being the latest in a line of seriously impressive works.
