We’ve said this before, but from the first time ‘burner.’ landed in our inbox it was clear FYNCH had all of the things we love about Irish hip hop, wrapped up neatly in a St. Patrick’s Athletic jersey.
Back in June he released his first full-length project ‘MIXVAPE’ via our label District Recordings. He’s since played Electric Picnic and a string of shows in Dublin venues and shared one of his best efforts yet ‘Home‘ in October.
The 22 year-old Drimnagh artist also co-founded a new label in that time, establishing Burner Records alongside Sick Nanley, Marcus Woods, Local Boy and ARBU. ‘Saipan’ is his debut outing on the imprint, with the track detailing “the tumult faced by artists that have internal confidence issues, which juxtaposes the desire to embrace and spread their art”.
“The title ‘Saipan’ comes from the conflict between Mick McCarthy and Roy Keane before the Republic of Ireland’s 2002 World Cup campaign, with the conflict splitting the country in two akin to the Civil War.”
