Dusty Residents – Fat Of The Land (Official Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on December 13, 2012 by craicmusic

Fat Of The Land is the new single from Dusty Residents, Bradshaw and Taaffeman, taken off their debut album ‘Seabury Heights’.
The sound is fitting for the duo and Bradshaw’s writing sounds more confident and self assured since his last outing on the ‘Karen EP’ (click here).

Dusty Residents supported Lethal Dialect last weekend at the LD50 gig @ Workmans, and with the album due out in the next couple of weeks expect to hear a lot more from them soon.

Directed by Luke Maxwell, Mixed & Mastered by Karl Murray

Jun Tzu – Fire In The Booth

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , on December 12, 2012 by craicmusic

Fifteen minutes of utter passion and a whole load of classic Fire In The Booth moments, this is undoubtedly one of the greatest sessions Charlie Sloth has presented.
Big Jun Tzu ‘the Solution’ steps up and blows Radio 1/1Xtra away. The initial political fury to the Charlie’s bakery heaven and the trad-hip hop with Jun’s cousin playing the bagpipes; just watch and be amazed.

There’s sure to be a number of people checking for Jun Tzu’s proper album ‘The Troubles’, it’s out in 2013.

Dublin based rapper Bitter Rocc drops the official video for his track Cold City taken off the Cold City album due out as a free download very soon.

At the start of the year Bitter Rocc released a beat tape of 16 instrumentals for MCs to download and tear up, check the Paint By Numbers mixtape (click here)

Rhymes, beats, skratches and supersonic sounds that will bring civilisation to the brink of destruction… 

‘Prophecy’ is an ancient vortex code located beyond the spoke of destiny, an electric terror weaving itself into the fabric of reality.. 

Warning: Listen at your own risk, the sonic journey may be perilous and strange for those of you with mechanic brains. 

All mon-eye from album sales will go towards the mobilisation of the Skratch Bus, which with your support will travel Ireland and Europe doing shows to promote skilled musicians and connect great music with scenic locations. 

Watch out for a 6-track follow up EP featuring Ophelia, Costello and DJackulate out soon.
