Costello – Illosophical

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads, Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , on July 11, 2012 by craicmusic

Brace yourselves, Illosophical is the debut album from Street Literature member Costello and half-way through 2012 it’s safe to say this is one of the highlights of the year.

A recent interview with Dublin-based music show Community Of Independents serves as a good introduction for new listeners

Fans of DFI Battle League will remember his clashes with Siyo, Desay and Genesis; however on Illosophical the battle mentality is gone instead we have a introspective, thought provoking LP, kept fresh with tracks like ‘Do The Best I Can‘ and ‘Love Affair‘.

The G.I production is sublime, and the beat choices complement the overall project perfectly. ‘Young Apprentice‘ and ‘The Devil’s A Liar‘ almost sound smokey while the drums keep it so raw. There isn’t a bad feature on here, ‘Let Me Blaze It f/ Willa Lee‘, ‘Analysis f/ Lethal Dialect‘ and ‘Played Out f/ 4Real & Jambo‘  demonstrate the scarily strong team of rhymers over at Working Class Records.

Illosophical has been available to stream since 15th March but now you are able to purchase it for €8 (click here)

Tracklist
1. Young Apprentice feat. G.I
2. Realism feat. Willa Lee
3. See The Signs feat. Jambo

Lethal Dialect LD50 I/II (Download)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2012 by craicmusic

The first two installments of the three part series are now available for free download. This is in preparation for LD50 Magnum Opus which is on the way to being completed and released this summer.

There’s very little I can write about the albums without sounding like a deluded hyped up fan spouting endless praise. Seriously, I can’t stress enough how important these albums are for your collection.
LD50 I & II issued in a new era of hip hop from Ireland; they are one of the reasons Craic Music continues to exist.

There isn’t a bad song across LD50’s 10 tracks or LD50 Pt II’s 11. It’s succinct, self-aware and crafted to near-perfection. Discussing tracks would feel like giving movie-spoilers away, and the replay value here will have you listening until the mp3’s are scratched & warped.

LD50 Tracklist
1. The Beginning
2. Metamorphose
3. Cold And Calculated
4. The National
5. Show You How feat. Tommy Hand
6. They Set You Up (Interlude)
7. Cold Case
8. The International
9. Do You Believe
10. Far From The End

(Download here)

LD50 Part 2 Tracklist
1.  The Sermon
2. Outstr8 feat. G.I
3. Dark Horse
4. The Four Comandantes feat. Mouse & Costello
5. Keep It Real
6. Make My Route feat. Tommy Hand
7. Apparitions feat. Costello & Jambo
8. The Bet (Skit)
9. Black Magic
10. Snakes & Reptiles
11. Get To My Dreams feat. Willa Lee

(Download here)

Magnum Opus will have features from RiRa & Cyrus Malachi; expect production from G.I, Ghost, Danny Diggs, The Expert and 7th Dan. Lethal Dialect is apparently going to contribute to the production as well which should be exciting.

Street Literature – Products Of The Environment

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2011 by craicmusic

It’s a jungle out there… a jungle that hip hop appears to be thriving in.

A pack of 4 Dublin emcee’s collectively known as Street Literature are predators in their area. With a ferocious group dynamic and voices hungry to be heard.

Products Of The Environment‘ is their first cohesive release from the group and includes verses/production from the late, great Lunitic. When listening to this, I get the feeling there’s a lot of history wrapped up in the recording and thankfully it translates to some of the most authentic, inspiring, passionate hip hop the country will ever produce.

Released in July and I’m still playing catch up with write-ups, but it’s given me more time to get a proper feel for the record and understand it better.

The split production duties between Lunitic, G.I., DJ Moschops, John Doe and Teknikal offers some variety for listeners. John Doe has some strong beats that compliment Street Literature’s attitude & style. “Wildlife” flips an eastern influenced sample into a frantic, populated flurry of verses and “Collateral Damage” wouldn’t sound out-of-place on a Terawrizt project alongside Tony Mahoney instrumentals. While Lunitic’s beats are a throwback to the Urban Intelligence sound, they still fit nicely on ‘Products Of The Environment’. Tracks like “Through The Years” and “We Don’t Need You Anymore” prove the visionary talent Luntic possessed years before Ireland would catch on.

DJ Moschop’s “Who Comes Iller” featuring Fly is certainly the most upbeat you’ll find by Street Literature, and it’s a real head-nodder. G.I.’s opening verse is effortless and unsurprisingly his beats match up to his wise-child style. His production steals the show on this mixtape and surely certifies him as one of the top-tier producers in Ireland today. Whether it’s the  electronic/synthesised sounds on “Rising Like A Footsoldier” & “Products Of The Environment” to the sample driven “Give Me A Reason” & “Working Class Warrior” the beats are premium and truly exciting to hear.

In terms of lyrical content, fans of Street Literature expecting the gritty portrayal of inner city life displayed on Boss TV earlier in the year, won’t be disappointed. Each member holds their own and the solo projects to follow are genuinely a thrilling prospect. Lunitic is a prophet with his story-telling, 4Real’s got a joyful aggression on track, Costello brings the philosophy and G.I. masters the musical flow. Throw in appearances from Lethal Dialect, Jambo & D’n’D on paper it’s hard to imagine how “Products Of The Environment” could fail?

Sadly however it lacks the completeness of 2011’s strongest contenders ‘LD50‘ and ‘12 Labours‘. Probably partly due to the process involved in putting this project together, but that’s comparing it with 2 (classic imo) albums and this betters most other CDs for sale in your local stops . Considering this isn’t a retail LP like Lethal or Sons albums, this free collection of tunes from Street Literature is the best bargain you’ll find all year online. It’s savage and you can download it on Craic Music, wouldn’t want you getting lost now, afterall the jungle is massive.

Track Listing
1. Products Of The Environment
2. Collateral Damage
3. Deep End featuring D n D
4. Music N Crime
5. The Question Is
6. Through The Years
7. Rising Like A Footsoldier
8. Who Comes Iller? featuring Fly
9. Wildlife
10. Flawless
11. We Don’t Need You Anymore
12 Gimme A Reason
13 Working Class Warrior featuring Lethal Dialect & Jambo

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

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.
