Dublin-based producer and musician, Chris Kabs has been hotly predicted to become one of
Ireland's most promising breakthrough artists in the near future and has been named as
Irelandâs Top Artists to watch for 2023 (Irish Examiner).
The EP explores Kabs' ability to fuse genres together creating a mix between modern
afro-beats, RnB, and pop mainstream music that has led him to be one of the most played
Black Irish male artists across Irish radio so far in 2023 reaching over 3 million listeners
across Irish radio (playlisted on RTE2fm and BBC), and hailed one of the 'Top Artists of the
Year to Watch' across various media platforms.
Having gained credibility and recognition across the live circuit performing on shows like
Hard Working Class Heroes, Longitude, the legendary Dublin venue Whelans, RTE Live,
SoundHouse, the Grand Social, and Cyprus Avenue - his energetic and vibrant live show
has been called an almost spiritual experience.
Kabs has produced local and international artists such as TolÃ¼ Makay, JyellowL, and the late
and great Coolio. His musical works have been featured on FIFAâs soundtrack on the TV
series âNormal Peopleâ just to name a few. 2023 sees a new chapter for Kabs as his focus is
put on his own artistry and solo career, with new music dropping throughout 2023 exclusively
via Rough Bones in the UK, in the form of his eagerly anticipated Ep in April.
Commenting on the EP:
"I was working with the late great Coolio last year on the legend's upcoming new musical
project, which was such an honour, but sadly due to an untimely end to the project, it couldn't
be finished. I sat with the words of Coolio "gather up your pity and turn it into ambition', so I
refocused my attention on this new EP and have just completed recording it. I look forward
to sharing these songs with a whole new audience as well as my loyal fans. It's been a
journey of ups and downs, but we got there in the end".
