LIMERICK based producer MynameisjOhn and MC God Knows are on cloud nine this week as they prepare for two high profile support slots with Snoop Dogg in the Academy in Dublin.

The duo just released the stunning album Rusangano /Family, and mark the release with the slots at the sold out gigs this Tuesday and Wednesday night in Dublin.

The album is an 11-track monster boasting a hefty dose of honest double-edged lyricism over skewed soul samples, 808 beats and sliced-up breaks. We couldn’t recommend it more and the duo deserve their moment in the spotlight.

Top scratch turntablist Mynameisj0hn - alter ego of Clare man John Lillis, who plies his trade in Limerick - has been on our radar since 2011’s 9-track release There Is A Policeman Inside All Our Heads and follow-up EP The Thinker and The Prover, which featured progressive, eye-opening music made through turntables, laptops, mixers and samplers.

His collaboration with charismatic MC God Knows - part of the Shannon based Random Acts Of Kindness collective, has pushed both men’s skills to a new planet.
