Gerard i2 – Hold It Down (Official Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on September 17, 2011 by craicmusic

The club friendly sounds of Gerard i2 have been noticed and used in the latest Safer Strabane Initiative.

‘Hold It Down’ as a video is straight forward, featuring Portstewart house DJ/producer Bobby Analog and drummer Smokes Patton both behind i2 playing away in the vid.

Fans of Gerard i2 will be pleased to know there is a new album on the way. “What I Like And Love” is due out on 22nd October with an album launch at Dicey Riley’s (Strabane). Expect a couple of gig dates to be named after that, Gerard i2 puts in an excellent live performance so presumably there will be a couple more events to catch his new material live.

And check the new cut off the new album featuring Dublin’s Mic Ryan.

Craic Products 2011

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2011 by craicmusic

It’s been a busy start to New Year, now well into Feb we are still playing catch up to all the strong releases throughout January. The last DFI had 3 proper album/mixtapes going on sale, first release exclusively @ DFI 7
Nu-Centz & Terawrizt – Sense The Terror 2
Rob Steenson – First Up, Best Dressed
Lethal Dialect – LD50

And now the new Sons Phonetic – 12 Labours is available, not to mention the recent releases in Jan from:
Nugget – Ready To Diet
Mugsy – Havin The Craic EP
Syze – Syze Matters
Siyo – Weapon Of Mass Creation

The scene is looking healthy right now! Here’s a selection of tracks/rarities from the month passed that caught Craic Music’s attention.


Maverick Sabre & Guests – Ye Think Yer Hard

Thanks to Mr. Collie Collins for uploading this track from the archives. A collaboration organised way back featuring a mad stellar line-up of Terawrizt, Jonnyboy, Maverick Sabre, Redzer, CuCullen, Collie Collins, Bradshaw & Nugget. It’s a free download too, can’t say fairer than that!

4Real – The Drop

Some sick storytelling from former Urban Intelligence member 4Real. Captivating track and hopefully marks the return to hip hop on a more permanent basis.


Siyo – So Broke (prod. Pro P)

A quick freeverse from Big Siyo over Pro P production. Being broke is no joke, I’m sure plenty people will understand where Siyo’s coming from right now. Also check the latest track uploaded to Youtube,  ‘Bloody Murder’ is accompanied with stills from a recent video shoot

Johno Manley – Back Tonight

Johno Manley aka Nifty Skillz tempted to pick up the mic once again to clear up some issues. “Back Tonight” mightn’t be the reassurance fans would have hoped for, but it makes for entertaining listening. Nifty spits real talk over a slick instrumental.

Gerard i2 – Gon’ n Tell Them

Strabane’s self producing & song writing star drops another monster track that remains playable in clubs without compromising his credibility. Gerard i2 has been working the live circuit recently and you can catch him @ Katy Dalys 25th Feb w/Mr Mills & Mugsy. Also if you missed ‘2 Dirt For Radio‘ the debut album, make sure to download now!

A To B – Stretch It (feat. Collie)

This is a fun tune from the electro/pop/experimental duo A To B providing a funky beat for Collie to lace up in familiar fashion. Smile inducing music with some very upbeat drums.

Imogen Heap –  Headlock (Paper Tigers Remix)


Last but by no means least, an immersive dub influenced remix of Imogen Heap’s Headlock by Paper Tigers from Belfast. The music technology student currently has 5 free downloads hosted on his SoundCloud page. Some lovely chilled 2step, garage ambient sounds on offer with a comprehensive dubstep feel to the music.

Mugsy – Havin’ The Craic EP

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , on January 20, 2011 by craicmusic

Mugsy has uploaded his second solo release to SoundCloud for everyone to stream & listen to. The Letterkenny lyricist has touched on a number of styles on Havin The Craic EP with guitar rap, summer style laid back beats and a strangely catchy electro/techno track.
It’s when Mugsy takes on darker topics that the EP excels. ‘I Have A Dream’ really stood out from the first listen and still sounds fresh today. Freestate spits so urgently it sounds like he has a gun pointed at his head, it took me multiple listens to understand everything going on.
‘War Without Violence’ is a dark, aggressive, punchy rap song with a monster verse from Gerard i2 at the end. A very listenable EP from Mugsy as he prepares his next album.
