Rob Kelly – Georgie Burgess (Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on June 26, 2012 by craicmusic

New official video for Rob Kelly’s ‘Georgie Burgess‘ track. Danny Diggs provides the quality beat, DJ Mayhem on the cuts and Johnathan Lambert is the man on the visuals. It’s not as cinematic this time round but Kell’s still knows how to drop a track with a bang.

‘Georgie Burgess’ is available as a free download on Rob Kelly’s SoundCloud

Temper Mental Miss-Elayneous – Proletarian Restitution EP

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio, Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , on June 24, 2012 by craicmusic

Introducing the latest sensation from Finglas and an emcee that’s creating a bit of a buzz at the moment, Temper Mental Miss-Elayneous.

The name is a bit of a mouthful and strangely enough quite apt considering the music. The ‘Proletarian Restitution E.P’ isn’t afraid to plunge listeners head first into a dark dystopia with complicated terminology and different social theories.

The flow suffers at times due to cramming of words, but it’s reassuringly challenging and Miss-Elayneous has put her abilities to the test on this project.

Her passion is hard matched and to her credit she has performed at speeches and rallies on the same topics she talks about. That kind of conviction is sadly lacking across a large share of hip hop today.

The ‘Proletarian Restitution E.P’ can be purchased for €5 now.

Proletarian Restitution EP Tracklist
1. Dominoes
2. Contra-Diction
3. Proletarian Restitution
4. Undoubtedly

Have a listen to the latest track ‘Step In The Ring’ inspired by Katie Taylor the Irish Female World Boxing Champion competing in this year’s Olympics. All the proceeds will be donated to the Peter McVerry Trust supporting Dublin’s homeless.

Kav – Dark Side Of The Sun (Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by craicmusic

Sons Phonetic Presents: Kav – Dark Side of The Sun.

It’s Kav’s first official video from his yet to-be-titled EP. Mook is on the beats and Moschops provides the cuts so it still retains that grimy SP essence. It’s gearing up to be a really exciting project and expect to hear from the rest of Sons Phonetic because they each have solo EPs on the way.

Lethal Dialect LD50 I/II (Download)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2012 by craicmusic

The first two installments of the three part series are now available for free download. This is in preparation for LD50 Magnum Opus which is on the way to being completed and released this summer.

There’s very little I can write about the albums without sounding like a deluded hyped up fan spouting endless praise. Seriously, I can’t stress enough how important these albums are for your collection.
LD50 I & II issued in a new era of hip hop from Ireland; they are one of the reasons Craic Music continues to exist.

There isn’t a bad song across LD50’s 10 tracks or LD50 Pt II’s 11. It’s succinct, self-aware and crafted to near-perfection. Discussing tracks would feel like giving movie-spoilers away, and the replay value here will have you listening until the mp3’s are scratched & warped.

LD50 Tracklist
1. The Beginning
2. Metamorphose
3. Cold And Calculated
4. The National
5. Show You How feat. Tommy Hand
6. They Set You Up (Interlude)
7. Cold Case
8. The International
9. Do You Believe
10. Far From The End

(Download here)

LD50 Part 2 Tracklist
1.  The Sermon
2. Outstr8 feat. G.I
3. Dark Horse
4. The Four Comandantes feat. Mouse & Costello
5. Keep It Real
6. Make My Route feat. Tommy Hand
7. Apparitions feat. Costello & Jambo
8. The Bet (Skit)
9. Black Magic
10. Snakes & Reptiles
11. Get To My Dreams feat. Willa Lee

(Download here)

Magnum Opus will have features from RiRa & Cyrus Malachi; expect production from G.I, Ghost, Danny Diggs, The Expert and 7th Dan. Lethal Dialect is apparently going to contribute to the production as well which should be exciting.
