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.

Irish Hip Hop Unplugged…

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on April 1, 2011 by craicmusic

Currently the hip hop scene in Ireland has a healthy amount of activity with a good variety of styles starting to flourish.
Collie’s recent 8bit/dubstep fusion Keep Er Lit EP, Nostalgic Future’s trance inspired debut and Tanya D’s soulfoul return to music to name a few.
Following the recent rise in accoustic hip hop groups across Ireland, the expanding musically diverse scene should be viewed as a good thing. It mighten suit every hip hop fans particular tastes, but give these new groups a listen and see what you think.

Must Try D’n’D

Not the most catchy of names. Must Try D’n’D is a combination of ex-band Must Try Harder and rapper D’n’D (Dean Doonan). Based in Finglas, Dublin the group has already achieved moderate success after a couple of appearances on RTE’s All Ireland Talent Show. They have a surprisingly accomplished sound for their age and make radio friendly songs with rapping that still holds considerable weight.

None The Wiser

The 4-piece North Dublin band comprising of Rob Steenson (MC), Steven McCann (Guitar/Vocals), Joe McGuckan (Guitar) & Adam Mannix (Drums).
Their latest track “Sleep On It” is getting airplay on Dublin’s FM104 and receiving positive feedback on various social media websites. It is also available for free download (click here)

The Original Rudeboys

Formed in March 2011, The Original Rudeboys have already made an appearance on TV3’s Morning Show, gained 1000 fans on Facebook and over 13,000 hits on their YouTube single “Stars In My Eyes”.
Neddy Arkins, Robert Burch & Sean Walsh all appear comfortable infront of the camera and the ukelele accoustic hip hop makes for an interesting listen. Their single will be on sale via iTunes and stocked in HMV soon; it’s in aid of Suicide Awareness, all the more reason to buy it.
They are performing @ The Good Bits, Dublin – Friday 8th April – €7, head along and support if you like what you hear.
