House music dons and the two most revered men in Sligo behind Kian Egan from Westlife are headlining room one at the official Bulmers Forbidden Fruit after party in The Grand Social on Sunday June 4.
They’ll be dishing out the usual good-time house and electronica. But with room two featuring the likes of Jafaris, Mango and Lawriii Craic, we decided to ask them to give a selection of their favourite hip hop tracks.
Click here for more on the party this Sunday.
One of the sickest tracks I’ve heard in a long time. I found it through listening to Jesse James, who is the one who got me into lyrics.
I was always about the beats before hearing him and MF DOOM. Antwon’s verse is absolute gold too.
Despite not having much material out Crave Moore is one my favourite rappers. He is also best paired with our boy 9T2 who is Irish too.
Absolute beast of a producer, made a lot of stuff for Rejjie too. I keep forgetting to lush some Strawberry Mirinda every time we go to London, looks like a treat.
I don’t know where to start with this track, I listen to it about four or five times a week.
The pimp Matt Finnegan on the beat too, what more do you want? “Accidentally killed the game on purpose.” If you don’t know the Soft Boys go check em out.
Best music video I’ve ever seen. Saw him live in Berlin a few weeks ago too, sold out show. I’m so happy for him, been listening to him for years now.
Kojaque put me onto this recently. Such an amazing track, I don’t know how hip hop producers make something sound so banging when it’s in half time.
It’s the chillest/lit (We have been saying lit in Sligo for years) song I’ve ever heard. Also, that Art Attack jersey is gas.
Brién aka “the white Kaytranada” is one of the best producers to come out of Ireland. He sends me stuff all the time and it always blows my mind.
Expect to see some #icy stuff from him soon.
Remix by Pete Rock of the smooth Jeru The Damaja. Much prefer this than the original.
Amazing track from Kev Brown. Friend from Sligo put this one onto me. Big up P-money.
One of my favorite hip hop party tracks. Amazing sample from Donald Byrd.
Not many Outkast fans know that they made some underground bangers. The whole album is a classic.
Sick producer and artist. Seriously slept on in my opinion. Always mention him to people and not many know.
Something from the amazing label High Focus. The tempo change in the track is so good.
