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:

Nostalgic Future

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , on March 31, 2011 by craicmusic

Nostalgic Future is the exciting new project being kept quiet by Lethal Dialect & G.I.
Craic Music has two tracks taken off the following CD and hear the interesting preview of what to expect.

Nostalgic Future – The Business

The project will be entirely different to the LD50 series; Set for a summer release date, Nostalgic Future, in Lethal’s words are “a mashup of trance, dubstep, dance and hip-hop”. The change from hard-hitting, boom bap rap to an electronic style comes as a natural progression to both MC and producer.
Drawing inspiration from their youthful upbringing in Dublin’s rave scene, Lethal & G.I. are embracing their musical influences in a new way as Nostalgic Future.

Nostalgic Future – Rollin’ In The Deep (Remix)

The verses are kept to a minimum on both tracks which is a shame because they are quality rhymers. We’re told to expect more bars and hooks on their other tracks as they mix things up a bit.
It’s a promising sound and Craic Music will keep a close eye on any breaking developments.

For those wondering about LD50 2, it’s scheduled for a Winter release

Traveling To The Top

Posted in News with tags , , , , on September 27, 2010 by craicmusic

Maverick Sabre is set to release his latest mixtape “Traveling Man” in the close future. The original date of 13th Sept was pushed back to 20th Sept and never materialized. The project has been put on hold temporarily while he promotes his latest single with Footsie “Inside”.
Maverick Sabre has a rapidly expanding fan base due to his steady flow of television, festival and guest track appearances. This is a highly anticipated CD for a number of good reasons. Although with relatively little info on this project and Mav’s guitar playing/singing of late, expectations might be skewed in different musical directions. That said, his music still maintains a unique quality and going by his latest song featuring Footsie, he’s going to have bangers whether he sings or raps.

Craic Music will keep you up to date with all the latest developments on Mav’s “Traveling Man” and much more.
In the mean time you can find more info about Maverick Sabre @ YouTube : Facebook : Myspace : Twitter

Notoriously Big

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on September 24, 2010 by craicmusic

Waterford’s infamously disastrous Don’t Flop flopper, MC Dubh, returns to the spotlight once more with an awe rendering video. Surprise surprise it is another diss track to add to the collection of ever growing insults Dubh throws at various Irish rappers. This time Nugget is the target of abuse for his apparent diss in the recent DFI Battle Blog video.
The reason being, Dubh was the rapper Nugget referred to as the worst battler in DFI due to his absymal performance against Redzer earlier this year. Check here! That was enough to provoke Dubh into another flurry of fat jokes and incomprehensible rhymes.

“Nugget Your A Git” is unlikely to be remembered fondly and digs the hole deeper for Dubh. Nonetheless it’s still a very humourous video and the lyrics are bound to baffle you.  What’s better is the fact that Dubh feels it’s necessary to photoshop himself into topless male photos, maybe it’s to trick us from thinking he’s a git and a fat mutha…….

If you are in anyway mildly amused and want to know more about MC Dubh – Myspace & YouTube go!
