Steeped in Dublin’s rave culture, and at the vanguard of Ireland’s burgeoning hip-hop scene, Mango X MathMan’s rise is a tale of resistance, resilience, and wrecking the gaff.
From grime anthems such as Badman, to one-night-only pirate radio broadcasts with No Surrender FM, from the bar-raising Wheel Up EP, to the spoken word profundity of Bread and Butter, the diversity of Mango X MathMan’s musical output is matched only by their ambition. It’s a drive that is quickly bearing fruit, with the duo excelling in a multitude of settings; notoriously energetic festival performances, basement raves, warehouse parties, and above ground, remarkable performances at Ireland’s National Concert Hall, and at the Barbican Theatre in London.
Their critically acclaimed debut album, Casual Work (2019), became an instant hometown classic, with the album’s lead single, Deep Blue - featuring the Mercury Prize-nominated Lisa Hannigan - voted the number one song of 2019 by The Irish Times. A sold-out national tour for the album in 2020 culminated in an already legendary show at the 39/40 club on the edge of the Liffey, right before lockdown rendered the city a blank slate, on which they will inevitably paint new scenes and new futures.
Named in the Irish Times top 5 albums, top 5 groups and lead single ‘Deep Blue’ named song of the year. Irish Times Best Music 2019
‘’Casual Work has a distinct vision and the Dublin duo has carried out that outlook through a willingness to explore and push the genre in new directions. If someone’s making a time capsule any time soon, they should make sure to leave a copy of Casual Work in there because Mango X Mathman have built a chillingly accurate encapsulation of Ireland right now’’ Nialler9
