Wastefellow is a rising experimental producer and songwriter from Dublin.
Having first caught the ear of Irish blogs with his unique hip hop production, Wastefellow surprised listeners in 2016 with his first solo EP, ‘Amazed, A Maze!’. Seeming to emerge from no-where, his layered production and delicate voice coalesced into a singular, psychedelic blend of left field electronica and hip hop beats that quickly caught the attention of Irish
Wastefellow spent the next two years building a following throughout Ireland with his live A/V show, featuring prominently on major festival line-ups (such as Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit, Body & Soul & All Together Now) and being consistently tipped to support a wide range of international acts (such as Holy Fuck!, Lapalux, Wild Nothing, Shabazz Palaces, Ulrika Spacek).
The time spent on the road proved pivotal for Wastefellow, as he began trying to channel the live energy back into the studio. In 2018 he signed to Ireland’s most exciting new label, Soft Boy Records to release his widely praised second EP ‘Post Human Potential’ in October. With this record, Wastefellow condensed that which had defined his sound so far down to five concise, angular tracks which float somewhere between the bedroom and the dance-floor, posing the question ‘what will happen when humanity evolves beyond the physical world?’. This release was followed by an Irish tour, culminating in a sold out launch in The Grand Social. A month later, Wastefellow appeared in Dingle for the famed ‘Other Voices’ festival, and then finished off his busiest year yet with a UK debut, headlining the Waiting Room, London.
Now, having already been named one to watch by The Irish Times, Red Bull Music & Goldenplec, Wastefellow is stepping into 2019 ready to release new music, and bring it to audiences around the world.
