Dublin-born alternative Hip-Hop duo Ugolino joins the Redgota Records (a Disrupción label) roster, as the first signing of 2022.
Ugolino's sound fuses jazz and spoken word poetry, and features Shane Richardson on vocals and Oran Hurley as the group's producer. Their unique soundscape questions Ireland's place in art, history, and popular culture, whilst the lyrics tackle sociopolitical issues in the country today. Prior to signing, the pair have worked together to create two self-released projects that have reached critical acclaim in the Irish and UK independent musician scenes.
With two singles under their belt, the duo's music has been featured on Spotify editorial playlists such as Jazz UK, Breath of Fresh Eire, New Music Friday UK, Jazz Fresh Finds UK and others. Their inaugural release, "Early Hours", was chosen as best of the Jazz UK playlist by Spotify in 2021, and their latest release, "Three Stripes" was featured on Nialler9, District Magazine, Golden Plec, RTE Pulse radio, and more.
Welcome to Redgota, and welcome to the Disrupción family, Ugolino!
