Boss TV – G.I.

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , on May 21, 2011 by craicmusic

The Working Class Army are living up to their name, G.I. dropping a couple verses for Boss TV’s Boss Verses.

Proving his mic capabilities are on a level to his production skills, G.I.’s raw style should be a refreshing watch for ‘old skool’ fans, Boss TV doing it again!

Not only will there be a Street Literature album and a Nostalgic Future project to look forward to, but G.I. is also preparing “Kinds A Green” a jazzy remix EP with a nod to the influential sounds of Miles Davis.

Spekulativ Fiktion – Double Album Promo

Posted in News with tags , , , , on May 20, 2011 by craicmusic

Cork’s Spekulativ Fiktion is set to return this summer with a double-disk album after the successful but ridiculously lengthy titled “Living Proof That The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword EP” (download here).

Disk 1 is going to be ‘straight up dirty beat style’ with the second disk changing to a more ‘experimental terrain’. It will be interesting to see how that works out, it’s not evident in the video promo the extent of experimentation, but the preview is nice. JusMe on the beats laying some easy, head-nodding sounds.

It will be a summer release, with more details hopefully soon. In the mean time check:

Cork Hip Hop Project – Get Involved!

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Events with tags , , , , , on May 15, 2011 by craicmusic

Budding MCs, singers, musicians, DJs and beatboxers should take note of the latest hip hop project starting in Cork this September.

Co-ordinated by GMC, he’s experienced in running workshops with schools and youth clubs, developing the ‘new skool’ talent in Ireland, most of which can be heard here!

“There are limited spaces for this new project that will be happening in Cork city starting in September. The overall aim of the project is to write, record, produce and promote a music album from scratch. We need rappers, singers, musicians, DJs, beatboxers to collaborate with each other on this. We will also arrange gigs to showcase the work as well as a website. You need to be 16 by September 2011 (If you are a year or two younger and feel that something like this would be of huge benefit to you then tell us why and we MIGHT be able to fit you in). This project is free of charge. If we have large numbers interested we may run a second project simultaneously.

This is a great opportunity to participate in recording a hip hop album for free and learn some valuable experience.

There’s only a couple of days left to apply so make sure to go to GMCbeats.com right away!
