In an attempt to make the charts, CMX has released his first official video for ‘Butterflies’ featuring Sara Dee. It is completely out-of-character with the hip hop album and CMX doesn’t have a verse on the single. It’s not a sound to judge the album on, but it may make listeners think twice about the artistic intentions.

Bitter Rocc – Cold City (Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on July 16, 2012 by craicmusic

Dublin based rapper Bitter Rocc drops the official video for his track Cold City taken off the Cold City album due out as a free download very soon.

The video is shot entirely on an iPhone 4S by Danielle Dempsey & Richard O’Connor; it could be miscontrued as some kind of fashion statement however the video is pretty solid after being edited.

Fans of the track don’t need to wait for the album as Bitter Rocc has made it available to download from his SoundCloud page, make sure to grab it below!

At the start of the year Bitter Rocc released a beat tape of 16 instrumentals for MCs to download and tear up, check the Paint By Numbers mixtape (click here)

Another fact for readers, Bitter Rocc also recently designed the artwork to G.I’s upcoming album ‘Underworld’ which is one to look out for.

The Elements – Smooth Sailing feat. Ruairi Coogan

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

New official video out from The Elements called ‘Smooth Sailing’. The chilled, jazzy sound  is courtesy of Gemsmiff and the mixing/mastering by Ndlz.

Mr Highspeed talks about ‘mummified mong rats’ and ‘milkshake mistresses’ in a bizarre but very listenable verse, while S.W.O.R.D.S holds down the more straight forward hip hop flow and the vocals are handled by Ruairi Coogan keeping the sound laid-back.

If you missed The Elements – Lost Archives ’06-’08 remastering release earlier this year, make sure to download and give it a listen.

Tracklist
1. Find Your Self
2. Ragga Trip feat. Ruairi Coogan
3. 3 Minutes
4. Equality
5. A New You
6. Overload feat. Ruairi Coogan
7. Gifted feat. Liz Davis
8. Nu Roots
9. MC Pedigree
10. Youth Of Today

Costello – Illosophical

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on July 11, 2012 by craicmusic

Brace yourselves, Illosophical is the debut album from Street Literature member Costello and half-way through 2012 it’s safe to say this is one of the highlights of the year.

A recent interview with Dublin-based music show Community Of Independents serves as a good introduction for new listeners

Fans of DFI Battle League will remember his clashes with Siyo, Desay and Genesis; however on Illosophical the battle mentality is gone instead we have a introspective, thought provoking LP, kept fresh with tracks like ‘Do The Best I Can‘ and ‘Love Affair‘.

The G.I production is sublime, and the beat choices complement the overall project perfectly. ‘Young Apprentice‘ and ‘The Devil’s A Liar‘ almost sound smokey while the drums keep it so raw. There isn’t a bad feature on here, ‘Let Me Blaze It f/ Willa Lee‘, ‘Analysis f/ Lethal Dialect‘ and ‘Played Out f/ 4Real & Jambo‘  demonstrate the scarily strong team of rhymers over at Working Class Records.

Illosophical has been available to stream since 15th March but now you are able to purchase it for €8 (click here)

Tracklist
1. Young Apprentice feat. G.I
2. Realism feat. Willa Lee
3. See The Signs feat. Jambo
4. The Representatives feat. G.I
5. Analysis feat. Lethal Dialect
6. Do The Best I Can
7. Let Me Blaze It feat. Willa Lee
8. Chess Game feat. Lethal Dialect
9. The Devil’s A Liar
10. Love Affair
11. Played Out feat. Jambo & 4Real
12. Rhyme Architecture feat. 4Real & Lethal Dialect
13. Memories Stay feat. Jambo
14. The World Is Yours (Dublin Remix) feat. Willa Lee
15. Illosophical feat. Willa Lee

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

(Buy here)

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.

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.

Good Vibe Society – Have A Good Weekend

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2012 by craicmusic

Cheers!

Cork’s giant ode to YOU having a good weekend is here. Brosy, D’Beats and Mickey Gatch together have created 19 tracks of bouncin’ party infused hip hop with hilarious rhymes and off-the-wall attitude.

Good Vibe Society – Hip Hop Is Dead (After School) feat. Bony, Nash & cuts by Jus Me

There’s a hint of Beastie Boys back-to-back rapping combined with a De La Soul-style humour over the beats. And the beats, D’Beats has had a field-day on Have A Good Weekend, providing a selection of insanely upbeat vibes but there’s also some curve-balls in there to keep your attention. ‘Hip Hop Is Dead (After School)’, ‘The Good Stuff’ and ‘Dreaming The Life’ show the versatility of the producer and vocal samples are aptly chosen on ‘The Weekend Has Landed’ and ‘King Of Gibberish’.

‘Greatest Hits’ will satisfy the majority of classic hip hop fans, Brosy and Gatch effortlessly trading gems word for word. ‘Good Vibe Society’ has Brosy offering “I’ll sell my soul to get my hole off Cheryl Cole” and a number of  side-splitting references giving an insight into his insanely genius mind.

‘No Woman, No Fry’ was an instant-hit with me because I was a fan of D’Beats ‘I Wake Up’ instrumental before the vocal and the Bob Marley inspired chorus is straight Good Vibe Society shiiit!

The is a perfect summer hip hop release and the 19-tracks are well worth the €8, purchase now via Paypal

Rhymes, beats, skratches and supersonic sounds that will bring civilisation to the brink of destruction… 

‘Prophecy’ is an ancient vortex code located beyond the spoke of destiny, an electric terror weaving itself into the fabric of reality.. 

Warning: Listen at your own risk, the sonic journey may be perilous and strange for those of you with mechanic brains. 

All mon-eye from album sales will go towards the mobilisation of the Skratch Bus, which with your support will travel Ireland and Europe doing shows to promote skilled musicians and connect great music with scenic locations. 

Watch out for a 6-track follow up EP featuring Ophelia, Costello and DJackulate out soon.
