Irish rapper, songwriter and performer, McGuire, prepares to unleash his powerful new single ‘SuperNova’, burning up dance floors with the heat of 10 billion suns much like its astrological namesake.
After catching the attention of US artist manager Hugh Hession, McGuire was flown to Atlanta, Georgia, where SuperNova was written in collaboration with Hession and DJ Freez (Lester Cromer) featuring fellow up-and-comer Joe Joe LeGras. This lead to McGuire signing to their label, HCMG/Big Motion Music and Grammy award winner Ken Lewis (FUN, Kanye West, Usher, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys) being brought in alongside the renowned Brian “Big Bass” Gardner (Macklemore, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Beastie Boys, Snoop Dog) to work their magic on the mixing and mastering.
Atlanta, however, is a far cry from McGuire’s small seaside hometown of Skerries, on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland. A corner of the globe perhaps not best known for its rap stars, but where a young Rob McGuire would spend countless hours in his room putting pen to pad and crafting his unique flow, inspired by the hip hop legends stateside. “When I was growing up, Skerries was very much indie rock influenced” explains McGuire, “I loved all that, but I started to get my edge musically when I was turned on to Coolio, Cypress Hill and Eminem”.
SuperNova is set to send a shockwave through the music industry and illuminate Ireland’s latest offering to the musical hall of fame on May 12th, with an EP to follow in June.
