“Temper-Mental MissElayneous” is an artist from Finglas in Dublin, Ireland. It’s difficult to box her into one category as she varies in her ability and style, however she is mostly recognised as a rapper. MissElayneous has collaborated with numerous other musicians and continues to branch out to create new work. She has trained as an actor and has performed in diverse roles, amid strong casts. MissElayneous is full of raps and ballads along with her bodhran and bells. She mentors youth in her community and has become a hero to many teenagers in Dublin.
Temper-Mental MissElayneous was recently on the cover of The Ticket in the Irish Times (for the St. Patrick’s Day special edition). Her song “Cailin Rua” was featured on St. Patrick’s Day. And she performed for President Michael D. Higgins at the Hot Press Music Show. MissElayneous has appeared on the same bill as Mick Jones, Tricky, Wu Tang Clan, Thee Satisfaction, and Shabazz Palaces. MissElayneous continues gigging, showcasing, auditioning, teaching and facilitating.
“Whether it was watching her freestyle on the street in Finglas or mentoring other female would-be rappers about their flow, she was on-point, lively and fascinating, one of the brightest sights and sounds on the Irish music scene right now. She’s the real deal.” Jim Carroll – Irish Times
Eberhart is an up-and-coming producer from Dublin, first coming to light through his songwriting and production work with Dublin-based electro-popster Bitches With Wolves.
Though classically trained from a very early age, stylistically his sound reflects a much wider musical spectrum. Influenced by pop producers Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, RedOne, Max Martin and Kuduro inspired artists and producers such as Diplo, M.I.A, Buraka Som Sistema, Santigold, his is a style that combines pop hooks with fresh sounds, edgy production and stadium-size club beats.
The last few years has seen Eberhart touring as part of the Bitches With Wolves live band (Oxegen, Electric Picnic, Eurosonic, Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Calvin Harris, etc) as well as performing a number of high profile DJ sets under his own side project Gents With Guns with DJ Chris James (Oxegen, Two Door Cinema Club).
Over the last few months Eberhart has been songwriting, producing and remixing for some of Ireland’s most promising musical talent. He reached the Top 5 finalists in SPIN 103.8′s Mark Ronson “Move To The Beat” remix competition in June and had two tracks in the Top 5 iTunes album charts.
