16-year-old Irish beatmaker Marcus Woods releases mixtape

The young Dubliner shows an old head with his ‘for you’ beat tape.

 

Clondalkin native Ryan Cullen goes by the pseudonym Marcus Woods when he’s producing. After a chance encounter with seasoned Irish hip hop beatmaker MathMan last year, he decided to take a real stab at music.

“I found the sound I was looking for when I discovered lo-fi hip hop. It was music that you could relax to, sleep to, just chill out to.

“Irish hip hop right now is really on the up. It’s amazing to see artists come up, like Rejjie Snow, Hare Squead, Jafaris, Bobby Basil… It’s great for the country and it’s great to see young people spread their vibes and get on the map.”

Listen to the mixtape in full below.
