Noize Thievery has just released a brand new EP called ‘Beyond The Interface Vol 1‘. It was recently revealed ‘The Man With No Name’ was used as an alias to record under, that’s been dropped and Noize Thievery handles everything you hear on this EP.
It is genuinely sick. Little needs said about his production skills, the past few months he’s delivered beats with glorious movie-like grandeur. All 5 instrumentals are included in the download as well, nice bonus. The lyrics hold weight, honestly the more you listen to it the more it grows on you. Fans of recent Lethal Dialect & Sons Phonetic releases will eat this up. It’s not as aggressive, Noize spits in a slower, more pronounced fashion and takes a philosophical approach to his rhymes. However there is still a certain rawness to the sound while remaining easy on the ear. Grab this now either from:

Craic Products – November Edition ’10

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2010 by craicmusic

Slightly later than anticipated but November’s “Craic Products” is certainly worth the wait! 6 of the top producers from the past month representing their respective cities in our monthly production compliation. First up a duo with some really fresh sounding beats it’s

The Dirty Dubsters (Dublin)

Experienced DJ’ing duo The Dirty Dubsters is the combined efforts of Jay SHARP (Austrailia) and DJ OBese (Dublin). They have been releasing material from around mid ’09 but both have collaborated consistently since 2006 part of Break Down crew. Their musical style varies from track to track, with elements of hip hop, drum and bass, ska, nu-funk and an underlying reggae theme throughout. It is genuinely happy music and great to buss out a lil skank too, g’wan now riddim killa!

Official Site : SoundCloud : YouTube

The Dirty Dubsters – Ya Don More

The Dirty Dubsters – Sweet Like Suga

Mr Grimes
(Skerries, Dublin)

Mr Grimes is musically very versatile with his productions. The young Skerries man first gained prominence on the Mr Grimes & Gloccabilities LP, delivering some surprisingly slick beats for Gloccabilities to flow over. The release was uploaded online for free download (click here)
Recently however Mr Grimes has turned his hand to dubstep and electro tunes with exciting results. He is worth keeping an eye for the variety on offer.

MySpace : SoundCloud : YouTube

Mr Grimes – Cooler Than You

Mr Grimes – Heads Will Roll (Remix)

Lean Tunes (Belfast)

This one is funny, the obvious comparison that’ll hit music listeners right away is the reclusive, mysterious sound that Burial brought to fame in 2006 on the self titled album. In a similar style, Lean Tunes appears to put all his attention into his music with little focus on himself or past accomplishments, no distractions here it’s music pure and simple. The dark, rhymic patterns are hypnotising and never prove to be intrusive on the ear.
Catch his comphrensive dubstep show on Queens Radio every Tues 9-11pm (

Lean Tunes – Untitled Demo

Lean Tunes – Snippet 1


Colz isn’t new to Craic Music. Fans of Dublin’s grimiest producer Major Grave, will recognise the Standard Crew affliate and hopefully downloaded the series of EPs given away for free recently (click here)
As well as running his successful Irish dubstep blog over @Smokelessfuels, Colz can whip up some truly energetic, joyous 2-step/D’n’B along with darker glitchier dubstep. Catch his radio show every Sat night from 9pm-10.30pm on Raidio na Life (106.4FM) mixing dubstep, grime, funky and more.

Infomatics – Let Me Fly (Colz Remix)

Colz – Burner

Latent Saint (Cork)

Latent Saint has currently switched up life in Cork to go and live in London. His beats are down tempo, atmospheric dubsteppy sounds with fitting basslines that don’t detract from the overall finished product. Having previously played at Cork’s premier electronic night “Ctrl-Alt-Delete” it is only to be expected that Latent Saint is name that many will be talking about soon.

Latent Saint – Morning Star

Latent Saint – Fer De Lance

Shatterfreak (Dublin)

Fresh on the electronic music scene, Shatterfreak is pumping out a special brand of sick and twisted beats. Covering Dubstep, Drum and Bass and generally just breaks of all kinds, he is rapidly becoming known for his trippy glitchy drums lines and heavy bass.
Tune into at 7GMT every Monday for SF’s weekly radio show “The Audio Files”. Also catch Shatterfreak’s Subverses project with Welface 10th Dec @ Galways supporting Boxcutter
