Bomb City 7 have been making waves since they exploded onto the local scene in July 2010. Their adrenaline fuelled and energetic live shows have managed to secure them a loyal following all around Ireland.

The ’’Songs from Bomb City 7’’ EP is their first official release, mixed by Rocky O’Reilly as well as produced and recorded by the band themselves.

The EP is 6 tracks of sing along, intelligent hip-hop blended with punk, post-rock, disco and pop. With lyrical topics ranging from scathing social commentary to tongue-in-cheek party anthems Bc7 take no prisoners producing catchy yet aggressive beats and rhymes.

After the release of their debut EP, Bomb City 7 are set to hit the road and cause havoc around the UK and Ireland taking their unique style of ‘’genre mongrel hip-hop’’ a little further afield.

There will be a few preview tracks from the EP going online soon and a video to be released. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open!

The Craic Music Podcast Vol 2 opens with Bomb City 7’s “This Petty Place”,  previews of the other tracks can be found at the following links

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!
