Sketch Nine – Belfast Mate (Official Video)

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2011 by craicmusic

Watch the new video for Sketch Nine’s ‘Belfast Mate’ just uploaded today. Video director Tristan Crowe uses some nice shots and slickly edited footage featuring cameos from “Belfast Mate” producer SertOne, The Activists and Funk-A-Rama’s dance team.

There’s a great sense of pride wrapped up in this track, pride for the city, pride for the slang and the hip hop scene up north. It’s refreshing to see it captured in such a positive way. Sketch Nine’s ‘The Expenses Of Living Free’ EP and debut release on the Melted Music label is scheduled to go on sale 12th September. The anticipation is growing with the new video adding to all the excitement.

Make sure not to miss Sketch’s Launch EP Party @ McHugh’s Bar, Belfast w/Phizuals, Pro P & DJ Koncept – 18th Sept – £3 – 9pm till 12am

Melted Music / iTunes

The first release from Melted Music and a big favourite here at Craic Music.
on the buttons delivering a short but thoroughly wholesome journey over 7 tightly crafted beats. Those not accustomed to the Portadown producer will find themselves swept away by the expansive, dream-like productions on offer. Every track flows so wonderfully into the next, adding to the unified feel of the whole CD. It is enjoyed best when played from start to finish.
The depth and clarity to the instruments and sounds allows us to properly re-imagine Sert’s ideas. The music sounds effortless and that’s an indication of the professional way he works.
SertOne – Past, Present And Future

It’s true, SertOne works his ass off all year round putting out remixes, hosting UStream live shows/mixes and offering advice to up and coming producers/emcees. Countless beat tapes perfecting his style have been released for free over past years, but this really feels like a solid product. Not to mention there are only a limited 100 hard copies printed, each with a completely unique cover & 4 brand new remixes not available currently to iTunes buyers. Can’t ever complain about complancency, SertOne’s creativity goes beyond music treating each listener royally.
SertOne – Astro Bazaar

It doesn’t feel right to judge the EP track by track, every beat has delicate but perfectly chosen samples and fit together immaculately as one project as a whole. This very well could become a classic piece of musical history and I urge people to follow their impulses now to avoid disappointment.

Buy now £5 @ Melted Music / or alternatively iTunes

SertOne’s new video just out gives us a glimpse into his frantic music mind with head decapitations, aligning planets, the late great GURU and some altogether trippy visuals.

Jee4ce – Monster Remix

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , on January 24, 2011 by craicmusic

Jee4ce ripping up Kanye West’s Monster beat on his latest freestyle. It’s been a while since we last heard the Antrim man rhyming, he’s been focusing on production under the Father Jack moniker, so ‘Monster Remix’ marks a welcome return to spotlight.
I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Jee4ce/Father Jack project later this year, time will tell.

Portadown’s prime producer gears up new EP!

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , on January 17, 2011 by craicmusic

I’m really excited about this. SertOne has been preparing the EP for a while now and with the release of some new beats & remixes for free download via SoundCloud it really is shaping up to be something quite special.
Have a listen and make your own mind up. Remixes include Kev Brown, Crystal Castles and the experimental MeLo-X with two brand new instrumentals to download as well. The beats have a proper blunted out feel to them, serious head nod music, sharing similarities to inspiriations Dilla & Flying Lotus while still sounding new and original.
The Crystal Castles remix in particular needs mentioned for the sheer amount of times I’ve listened to it and the saxaphone on Past, Present, Future brought an instant smile to my face. The ‘A View From Above’ EP is released on 21st Feb.

Kev Brown – Allways (SertOne Remix)

Crystal Castles – Not In Love (SertOne Remix)

MeLo-X – Machine Drum/Let It (SertOne Remix)

SertOne – Past, Present, Future

SertOne – Morning Rise/Alarm

The new label Sert’s signed to Melted Music, are throwing a launch party on the 25th Feb @ Morrisons, Belfast. Expect to see Jee4ce, Sketch Nine & SertOne rocking the place. Keep up to date through their Facebook page for more details
