Outsider Y.P. – conceptual hip-hop
What you may need to know…
01. He’s been a regular feature of these posts, and for good reason: the Cork-based artist formerly known as Young Phantom continues to set out his stall.
02. After throwing an album listening party at the Glucksman last weekend, Mark Mavambu announced his debut album “proper”, Alone/Insane/Alive would drop that night at midnight on Soundcloud and his website.
03. That LP is streaming above. A concept piece exploring isolation, masculinity and depression.
04. Due today on Spotify, Apple Music and the like if Soundcloud isn’t your bag. Expect live activity to follow.
Thoughts: It’s one thing for an artist to outline their ambitions as much as Mavambu has, and quite another to see that passion and grandeur being realised.
