The rap group, Versatile, are one of Irelands freshest and most closely followed artists in recent times. The coupling of Eskimo Supreme and Casper Walshs lyrical deftness, streaked with humour and vivid storytelling skills combined with the production finesse of Evan Kennedy, has produced a unique sound and equally special fanaticism.
Back in 2013 as mere whippersnappers at the age of 16, Versatiles story begins with their first upload to their highly subscribed YouTube channel, OUTBURST. Slowly increasing their output over the years, each song is an adventure on which thousands have been taken along upon hearing - from the dark bottom of the session in "Ketamine to the how-to of stealing dogs on "Done Season. Their catalog is saturated in the absurd; sharp and satirical in style catalysing to an endurable memorability.
Deferring until 2017 to perform live Versatiles earliest shows were met with wild fervor leading their sold out "On The Float tour of Ireland following the release of their largest body of work to date, The Dublin City Gs mixtape.
In summer 2018 they created a maelstrom at the Electric Arena of EP, cited as one of the best performances of the festival, performed the headline set at Life Festival and drew crowds away from huge international arts at Longitude.

Whether inducing laughter, confusion, mania, shock or anger without question Versatiles contributions are making a deep impression that has barely began to set.
