Dusty Residents – Fat Of The Land (Official Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on December 13, 2012 by craicmusic

Fat Of The Land is the new single from Dusty Residents, Bradshaw and Taaffeman, taken off their debut album ‘Seabury Heights’.
The sound is fitting for the duo and Bradshaw’s writing sounds more confident and self assured since his last outing on the ‘Karen EP’ (click here).

Dusty Residents supported Lethal Dialect last weekend at the LD50 gig @ Workmans, and with the album due out in the next couple of weeks expect to hear a lot more from them soon.

Directed by Luke Maxwell, Mixed & Mastered by Karl Murray

Jun Tzu – Fire In The Booth

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on December 12, 2012 by craicmusic

Fifteen minutes of utter passion and a whole load of classic Fire In The Booth moments, this is undoubtedly one of the greatest sessions Charlie Sloth has presented.
Big Jun Tzu ‘the Solution’ steps up and blows Radio 1/1Xtra away. The initial political fury to the Charlie’s bakery heaven and the trad-hip hop with Jun’s cousin playing the bagpipes; just watch and be amazed.

There’s sure to be a number of people checking for Jun Tzu’s proper album ‘The Troubles’, it’s out in 2013.

Leftovers

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2012 by craicmusic

With a good deal of albums due for release this summer, it’s inevitable that some tracks won’t make the cut. Here’s 3 throw aways that surfaced on the net recently.

Terawrizt Humanity feat. Big Ben
The Tony Mahoney produced, punch-line packed tune missed the final selection for Tera’s ‘Silence Is Consent‘ album due out soon.

Jee4ce
Make Some Room
This mad crunk remix of House Of Pain’s Jump Around/Bob & Earl’s Harlem Shuffle should grab listeners attention, but it won’t be on the self-produced ‘My Friend Jack‘ EP out hopefully by the end of this month.

Rejjie Snow
Untitled
In typical Rejjie Snow style the details are on the low, but that doesn’t matter here because this super chilled ‘parody’ track shows the ever entertaining Snow at his best. ‘Fish & Chips’ EP might be out tomorrow or in ten years time, keep an eye on his social media.
