Prima Volta presents MC Gavin DaVinci and Auxiliary Trio

Prima Volta began as a 3-day music festival as part of The Limerick City of Culture 2014. With a focus on left-field hip-hop and beat orientated music, the weekender hosted an array of International and local artists. Featuring acts such as Kutmah, Fatima, Illum Sphere and Limerick’s own; mynameisjOhn featuring Same D4ence.

After a 4 year hiatus, the project returns with a series of gigs aimed at giving a new platform to Irish artists and introducing some of the country’s finest talent to some fresh ears…

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.
