“This is only the tip of the iceberg…”


‘nostalgia’ EP is the five-track project from Dublin beatmaker Marcus Woods. The lead single ’35’ reached the #1 spot on the Irish Hip Hop Singles chart on iTunes, and now the full project has gone to #1 on the Irish Hip Hop chart.

We have been following the young producer for a while. He first came to our attention a year ago with a mixtape he said he was prompted to make after a chance encounter with seasoned beatmaker MathMan back in 2016.

The Clondalkin artist has gone from strength-to-strength since and we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be releasing a new project entitled ‘shubui’ with him mid-May via our label District Recordings, with an accompanying video and launch party. Full details coming very soon.

“This is only the tip of the iceberg though,” the young artist explains. “In comparison to what I have in store with ‘shibui’, it’s something I extremely enjoyed making over the last few months. I went in deep with a Japanese concept with the forthcoming tape. It’s in mastering stages at the minute so expect it to drop very soon…”

In the meantime, stream and purchase ‘nostalgia’ in full below, which is a collaboration with a Irish streetwear brand of the same name.
