Dead Set Gemini – Music For Spaceships (Download)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , on April 29, 2011 by craicmusic

If you don’t know about Dead Set Gemini then you haven’t been paying attention to Craic Music properly.

Edinburgh’s Deezy and Antrim’s Jee4ce make the unlikely pair of Geminorian twins, Castor and Pollux, in this light hearted, galactic hip hop romp.

The 10 solid tracks remain fairly unique in their sound, with glossy production and catchy hooks galore. It’s not going to suit hip hop purists tastes, but the party tunes and witty soundclips make it listenable with nice amounts of replay value.

The download includes the first chapter outlined in their ‘Dead Set Gemini‘ comic with some basic but effective artwork also attached. The characters also appear to have been developed with a proper appreciation for sci-fi storylines and that’s enjoyable to hear & read.

Dead Set Gemini – No-One Can Hear You Scream feat. Double L

The download is highly recommended and with the likes of MTV and BBC Radio 1 taking notice, DSG are gradually gaining a steady momementum of praise.

Tracklist:
1. Intro
2. Music For Spaceships feat. Double L
3. Star Sign
4. She’s Out This World feat. Demus
5. Interference
6. No-One Can Hear You Scream feat. Double L
7. Get Wrecked feat. Bang On! & Cruicky
8. Going Crazy feat. Madhat
9. Higher
10. Hypnotize (Bonus)

Tanya Denise – 2 Brand New Tracks!

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2011 by craicmusic

Tanya Denise is a Soul Singer from Dublin Ireland. Creating her own special blend of Soul/R’n’B/Funk sounding like the early 90’s for the 21st century.

The new style and singing sounds refreshingly different from her previous work, drawing comparisons now with Erykah Badu although keeping hip hop present with the J Dilla instrumental and tidy Kelakovski production.

Having released two mixtapes, ‘The Proof Mixtape’ in affiliation with Sideline Inc and ‘Beauty 4 Gold‘ featuring Terawrizt, Kounter Kulture, Rhymes Vital & Dave SDK her attachment to hip hop goes way back.

Sharing stages with Slaine (La Coka Nostra), Shaymin, Sullee & Rob Kelly in Boston under the previously more hip hop sounding ‘Tanya D’ name; She got to number #4 in the Irish Download Charts, proving to be one of the most successful charting positions for an Irish female MC.

Tanya’s appeared in films ‘How Harry Became a Tree’ & ‘Magnificent Ambersons’; RTE’s popular soap ‘Fair City’ and advertisements for Guinness & Aer Lingus.

Irish Hip Hop Unplugged…

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on April 1, 2011 by craicmusic

Currently the hip hop scene in Ireland has a healthy amount of activity with a good variety of styles starting to flourish.
Collie’s recent 8bit/dubstep fusion Keep Er Lit EP, Nostalgic Future’s trance inspired debut and Tanya D’s soulfoul return to music to name a few.
Following the recent rise in accoustic hip hop groups across Ireland, the expanding musically diverse scene should be viewed as a good thing. It mighten suit every hip hop fans particular tastes, but give these new groups a listen and see what you think.

Must Try D’n’D

Not the most catchy of names. Must Try D’n’D is a combination of ex-band Must Try Harder and rapper D’n’D (Dean Doonan). Based in Finglas, Dublin the group has already achieved moderate success after a couple of appearances on RTE’s All Ireland Talent Show. They have a surprisingly accomplished sound for their age and make radio friendly songs with rapping that still holds considerable weight.

None The Wiser

The 4-piece North Dublin band comprising of Rob Steenson (MC), Steven McCann (Guitar/Vocals), Joe McGuckan (Guitar) & Adam Mannix (Drums).
Their latest track “Sleep On It” is getting airplay on Dublin’s FM104 and receiving positive feedback on various social media websites. It is also available for free download (click here)
Find them @ None The WiserFacebook : Twitter : YouTube

The Original Rudeboys

Formed in March 2011, The Original Rudeboys have already made an appearance on TV3’s Morning Show, gained 1000 fans on Facebook and over 13,000 hits on their YouTube single “Stars In My Eyes”.
Neddy Arkins, Robert Burch & Sean Walsh all appear comfortable infront of the camera and the ukelele accoustic hip hop makes for an interesting listen. Their single will be on sale via iTunes and stocked in HMV soon; it’s in aid of Suicide Awareness, all the more reason to buy it.
They are performing @ The Good Bits, Dublin – Friday 8th April – €7, head along and support if you like what you hear.
