Emmsjé Gauti [IS]
Emmsjé Gauti is a veteran in the Icelandic rap scene. After honing his talent for the last 17 years in Reykjavik’s small but vibrant and competitive rap scene, he released his debut solo album in 2010 which proved a big hit among fans and critics alike. Catapulting into the spotlight with his feature on the Blazroca’s hit “Elskum Þessar Mellur”, the aptly titled “Bara Ég” (“Only Me”) solidifies his status as one of Iceland’s most prominent young artists, striking an eclectic balance between flamboyant pop, humor and unadulterated rhyming skills. In 2016 he released “Vagg&Velta” that put him in the story books of Icelands music history with smash hits like “Silfurskotta” and “Reykjavík” Say what you want about Emmsjé Gauti, he gets the party started! Go check out his videos on Youtube (he’s put out more of them this year alone than most artists do in their entire careers). If you are into punk-like shows, stagediving and random bullshit, Gauti is your go to guy.
