Hassan Baker will perform the Mothra Drafts at open mic events throughout Cork and Dublin, following his debut at Electric Picnic. His debut singles will release in 2018..
Hassan Baker, a founding member of Hausu, is gearing up with his new project, Mothra.
Hassan’s journey started five years ago on the Cork spoken word scene, covering themes of self awareness, inner and outer conflicts, and general mundanity that comes from his personal experience as a first generation immigrant lad living in two conflicting cultures. His lyricism brought him to the Cork punk band Skrujax, then on to Hausu’s own experimentalists Repeater where he cut his teeth rapping over blistering, energetic instrumentals. The Mothra project aims to cover the topics of self-identity and maturity in a digital world. Taking the guise of Mothra, Hassan expresses a more confident self hiding behind obscurity.
During Hausu’s summer break Mothra’s debut project began to take shape, and the lyrical sketches of this were debuted as spoken word at this year’s Electric Picnic festival Theatre Stage under the banner of the Word Up Collective.
