District Conversations Podcast [Paul Alwright FKA Lethal Dialect]

“…there’s a particular archetype of what the male is supposed to be…”

 

Irish hip hop wouldn’t exist at the level it is today without Lethal Dialect. Any fan of the genre in this country should be aware of his legacy and the influence he has had on today’s sound.

He recently took to Twitter saying “the bravado, the misogyny and the alpha male bullshit that accompanied the LD moniker was to be swiftly dropped”, citing influences from Rubberbandits, Damien Dempsey, Tara Flynn, Una Mulally and the passing of a friend to suicide as the catalyst.

In this podcast Eric Davidson and Paul go into detail about removing the mask, feminism, where he stands now as an artist and setting an example for kids who could be in the same position he was.

This is District Conversations.
