Irish hip hop pioneers Scary Éire are reforming for a headline show

Hip hop gig announcement of the year goes to…

 

Irish hip hop would not be where it is today without the trailblazing Dada Sloosh, DJ MEK, Mr Browne and RíRá, aka Scary Éire.

They were the first Irish hip hop act to be signed to a major label when they joined U2, The Cranberries and more on Island Records in the 90s. They set the bar so high that many believe it’s only in recent years that artists in the genre in this country have been able to reach their creative heights.

Here’s what ChoiceCuts had to say about getting the crew back together.

“With hip hop culture interwoven firmly into Irish culture in 2019, it seems fitting that we present Scary Éire on the most Irish of weekends.”

The group play a special show on March 17 in The Sugar Club. Click here for more.
