Irish tracks you should bump today

A good variety of tracks on display this new music Friday.

We saw Kojaque and Gaptoof link up ‘Dreamcatcher’ today and Mango x Mathman drop visuals for ‘Memories’, but there’s still more banging music to highlight.

We’ve got a whirlwind collaboration from C.O.B and Nealo, a stunning new video from Gonzo Collective and a jazzy number that is set to blow away the cobwebs of winter.

C.O.B – What On Earth? Feat. Nealo

Base Life spitter C.O.B has recruited Nealo for a scorching new cut. Hotly tipped for big things this year following a string of stellar singles in 2019, C.O.B came through with some reflective bars in ‘What On Earth?’. Swiftly followed by some scathing lyrics about the catholic church from Clonsilla’s Nealo. There is genuine natural chemistry on the track and it provides a welcome switch up in flow from the Diffusion Lab signee.

Cooks But We’re Chefs – Stella Maris

Cooks But We’re Chefs are a nine piece ensemble channeling everything from hip hop, jazz and disco into their music to provide certified floor fillers. They’ve been shelling festivals for a number of years and they’ve developed a knack for creating dance-inducing, jazzy numbers.

Their latest release, ‘Stella Maris’ comes as the first single from their forthcoming EP ‘Sports Day’, set for release on February 21.

It sees the group blend jazz and hip hop, with their resident MC Pharaii Dambisa spraying infectious bars throughout the uplifting effort. As we edge slowly out of the depths of Winter it feels as though this new song could soundtrack Summer 2020.

Sourfruit – Candlelight

Sourfruit released ‘Candlelight’ on streaming services last week. Unapologetically wearing their influences on their sleeves, the group borrowed inspiration from Brockhampton and Deb Never for their latest track.

Now they’ve dropped accompanying visuals that demonstrate their love for Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Barry Lyndon’ and photographer Jeff Wall. The stunning visuals are setting their own bar high, illustrating a significant step up from their last visual endeavour. Exciting times ahead for Dun Laoghaire’s Gonzo Collective.
