Limerick singer, songwriter, and electronic producer Rory Hall—better known as Proper Micro NV—
Hall's releases have been hailed and played by BBC Radio, Nialler9, Dan Hegarty & Jenny Greene of RTÉ 2fm, The Irish Times, Hot Press, The Last Mixed Tape, and Clash Magazine, who described his music as “dazzling.” His first LP, Dormant Boy, was released in 2018. The record was lauded by Nialler9 as “surprisingly fully formed for a debut release” and ranked among their best albums of 2018. The Limerick Post proclaimed Dormant Boy a “lavish and joyous electronic production.” With this in mind, it’s no surprise that he was listed as a Whelan’s Ones to Watch artist in both 2018 and 2019.
Since the project’s creation, Proper Micro NV has performed at various venues and festivals throughout Ireland and the UK including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Latitude, Castlepalooza, Whelan's, Dolan's, Roisin Dubh, The Workmans, and more. Hall’s electronic, dance-driven, and theatrical shows have turned heads across the island and abroad.
From 2021 to 2023, Hall took the stage in front of an energetic London crowd, performing a live show in Shoreditch and Stoke Newington on the same night; enjoyed festival performances at Fall Right In To Place festival (2022, 2023) on the grounds of Claregalway Castle; and landed special guest slots for both Gemma Dunleavy and HousePlants in Limerick. Last year, he released his single ‘Never Go On,’ which Nialler9 praised for sounding “like Jamie Lidell singing on a blissed-out dance track.”
Following on from his widely praised 2018 debut record Dormant Boy, Hall will soon announce details of more brand new music.
