After the disappointing scoreline last night in Euro 2012 thanks to the Spanish; one thing noticeably prevailed, the chants and songs of the supporters.
Here’s some uplifting music for any post-match hangovers still occurring.

Major Grave part of Standard Crew recently uploaded this grimey MPC remix of the 2005 J Sweet release. It’s got that old school grime sound on the samples and it’s a lively beat. Remember to catch Standard Crew every Saturday on 106.4fm Dublin (Link for online users) 9pm-10.30pm

Posted in Irish Hip Hop Audio with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2010 by craicmusic

Slightly later than anticipated but November’s “Craic Products” is certainly worth the wait! 6 of the top producers from the past month representing their respective cities in our monthly production compliation. First up a duo with some really fresh sounding beats it’s

The Dirty Dubsters (Dublin)

Experienced DJ’ing duo The Dirty Dubsters is the combined efforts of Jay SHARP (Austrailia) and DJ OBese (Dublin). They have been releasing material from around mid ’09 but both have collaborated consistently since 2006 part of Break Down crew. Their musical style varies from track to track, with elements of hip hop, drum and bass, ska, nu-funk and an underlying reggae theme throughout. It is genuinely happy music and great to buss out a lil skank too, g’wan now riddim killa!

The Dirty Dubsters – Ya Don More

The Dirty Dubsters – Sweet Like Suga

Mr Grimes
(Skerries, Dublin)

Mr Grimes is musically very versatile with his productions. The young Skerries man first gained prominence on the Mr Grimes & Gloccabilities LP, delivering some surprisingly slick beats for Gloccabilities to flow over. The release was uploaded online for free download (click here)
Recently however Mr Grimes has turned his hand to dubstep and electro tunes with exciting results. He is worth keeping an eye for the variety on offer.

Mr Grimes – Cooler Than You

Mr Grimes – Heads Will Roll (Remix)

Lean Tunes (Belfast)

This one is funny, the obvious comparison that’ll hit music listeners right away is the reclusive, mysterious sound that Burial brought to fame in 2006 on the self titled album. In a similar style, Lean Tunes appears to put all his attention into his music with little focus on himself or past accomplishments, no distractions here it’s music pure and simple. The dark, rhymic patterns are hypnotising and never prove to be intrusive on the ear.
Catch his comphrensive dubstep show on Queens Radio every Tues 9-11pm (

Lean Tunes – Untitled Demo

Lean Tunes – Snippet 1


Colz isn’t new to Craic Music. Fans of Dublin’s grimiest producer Major Grave, will recognise the Standard Crew affliate and hopefully downloaded the series of EPs given away for free recently (click here)

Infomatics – Let Me Fly (Colz Remix)

Colz – Burner

Latent Saint (Cork)

Latent Saint has currently switched up life in Cork to go and live in London. His beats are down tempo, atmospheric dubsteppy sounds with fitting basslines that don’t detract from the overall finished product. Having previously played at Cork’s premier electronic night “Ctrl-Alt-Delete” it is only to be expected that Latent Saint is name that many will be talking about soon.

Latent Saint – Morning Star

Latent Saint – Fer De Lance

Shatterfreak (Dublin)

Fresh on the electronic music scene, Shatterfreak is pumping out a special brand of sick and twisted beats. Covering Dubstep, Drum and Bass and generally just breaks of all kinds, he is rapidly becoming known for his trippy glitchy drums lines and heavy bass.
