Led by producer and composer James Strain, Auxiliary Phoenix Trio are a jazz-fusion hip-hop troupe rounded out by James McDermott on keys and Jake Quinn behind the drums. The group originally came together in pursuit of a novel means of transposing the jazz-influenced hip-hop Strain concocted for his EP Camelopardalis into a live environment. From there, the trio’s sound has continued to evolve, captivating hip-hop heads and jazz aficionados alike.
Transcending genres and tearing up the rule book when it comes to writing a hip-hop album, beatmaker and MC Gavin DaVinci has been blazing a trail in 2018.

The Tipperary MC belies his young age with thought-provoking lyrics and hard-hitting beats and continues to go from strength to strength as he hones and develops his craft.
His live performances have also been turning heads with the self-proclaimed mad scientist always delivering an energetic and commanding show.
Gavin will be performing tracks from his debut album on the night while also debuting new material from a forthcoming EP comprising of jazz influenced beats produced by his DJ, Mankyy.
