Press

"Boiler Room has shared an engrossing new mini-documentary tracing Ireland’s burgeoning underground hip-hop scene."

HIGH SNOBIETY

"If you’d rather stay in, you could do worse than to watch a new Boiler Room documentary, Soft Boy, about the booming underground hip hop scene in Ireland (I’m serious). The film follows Dublin-based record label and artist collective, Soft Boy Records, which was launched by rapper Kojaque after being told by labels and managers that his accent would be viewed as a “gimmick”."

THE INDEPENDENT

"Irish hip hop: self expression in a changing nation."

DAZED

"It’s an interesting watch. No doubt the collective are currently at the creative helm for some of the nation’s most vibrant art."
