Watch Boiler Room’s new documentary ‘Soft Boy Forever: An Irish Hip Hop Story’

“A film about Soft Boy Records, the Dublin rap collective flipping hip-hop’s braggadocio on its head within Ireland’s growing underground music scene.”

 

Boiler Room have just shared a film documenting their time with Soft Boy Records, including Kojaque, Kean Kavanagh, Luka Palm, Gaptoof, Brièn, Ellen Kirk, Matt Finnegan, Five to Two, Henry Earnest, Wastefellow and jar jar jr.. It shows them in the studio, at home and culminates in Kojaque’s show at Electric Picnic earlier this year.

“The film documents the group working out of bedrooms and makeshift studios, their music covering topics from the Repeal the 8th Movement, gentrification in Dublin and the pressure on Irish men to live up to the traditional idea of masculinity. Soft Boy Forever explores the mentality that has brought them together: not to harden up against the issues they face in a modern Ireland, but to ‘stay soft.’ They are the future of Irish music and this is Dublin today.”
