Posted in Irish Hip Hop Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2012 by craicmusic

“ICE CREAAAMS, GET YOUR ICE CREAMS!”
Rob Steenson returns with a soft, summer styled track accompanied by Woody Murphy on the vocals.
The former Sway-Z member looks set to follow in Neddy Arkins footsteps with this light and radio friendly rap song.
Alan Newman’s on the beat and Collie mixed and mastered the track. Jonathan Lambert is one to watch out for on the visuals as he adds ‘Summer Rain’ to his growing list of high quality videos produced.

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)
Find them @ None The WiserFacebook : Twitter : YouTube

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.

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.

12. 8 Millions Bars (prod. Pro P)
13 Still a Fat Bastard (Outro) (prod. Base Gamble)

Executive Producer: Terawrizt

SmokeRoom Productions are trailblazing with the second release of 2011 now available to buy @ Terawrizt.com.
Ready To Diet‘ is the cleverly titled follow-up to ‘The Nugget Ya To Hate’ LP.
A full course of healthy beats, relatable rhymes and tongue in cheek humour is on offer here. Nugget’s strength lies in the hard-hitting punch lines and the ability to laugh at himself. One glance at the artwork and that should be quite obvious (shouts to Jebus, genius idea).

Generally poor constructed studio tracks plague hardened battle rappers albums but that’s not the case on ‘Ready To Diet‘. The line-up of guest features and production credits make this one of most exciting hip hop releases to come from Ireland in a very long time.
Starting with Nugget’s slick sounding intro over Noize Thievery’s backdrop, followed by a superb flow on ‘Soundtrack Of My Life‘. There is a wonderful feel to the beats whether it’s Tony Mahoney’s dark, movie-like sounds Irish Tune’/’Path Of Life or Sinful Deed’s spacey, laid back riddim ‘Doesn’t Really Matter ft. Collie’. Nugget seems at ease on the productions, his ideas are realistically captured without ever exceeding limits of reality or playing up a fake, glamorous lifestyle. This is a genuine portrayal of the ordinary day-to-day drag.
The self deprecating humour and honest feel on this record, make it special. Nugget doesn’t brag & boast about being number 1, he doesn’t need to. Fans value him as something of an underdog, funny then that his debut was the Nugget we love to hate because the Dublin anti hero may very well just turn out to be the Nugget we love to love.

Buy ‘Ready To Diet‘ now @
