Brand new audio from the former Dark Half member right now! It’s been a few years since the last release, so it’s a joy to hear Skitz rhyming again with a proper rugged style, delivering authentic hardcore hip hop. Dark Side Of The Spoon is the new track featuring production from Jay Byrne.

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos, News with tags , , , on October 26, 2010 by craicmusic

Caught on camera joining Chase & Status on stage during their current tour, Maverick Sabre help unveil a brand new track called Sleepless infront of a live audience. The audio quality isn’t great in the video, but it is enough to know the final version should be crazy! Sleepless is set to be on Chase & Status’ new album ‘No More Idols’  but it has not yet been confirmed if the track will make the Traveling Man Mixtape. Still expect guest appearances from Footsie (Newham Generals) & Starkey when that drops.

The Rubberbandits and their hilarious appearance on RTE last week. It’s about as good a guide as you’ll get to Limerick, unfortunately Nailerz tours don’t sit well with the public.

Latest SertOne remixes of The xx and Hundred In The Hands

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2010 by craicmusic

SertOne is a busy guy, not that it shows in the effortless remixes he frequently drops. Much respect to him for the consistently high standard and work ethic. People need to start taking note!
The latest bands to receive the SertOne treatment are this years Mercury Music Prize winners The xx and Brooklyn electropop duo The Hundred In The Hands. Neither being an obvious choice for a hip hop producer necessarily, but Sert works his magic as we have now come to expect. Check out the two new tracks

The xx – Shelter (SertOne Remix)

The Hundred In The Hands – Pidgeon (SertOne TooManyKicks Remix)
