Public Enemy come to Cork!

These guys changed my life and are defo one of the reaosns why I am DJing today. We've had a lot of hip-hop legends (Run DMC, De La, Flash, Bambataa, De La Soul etc) but Public Enemy are as good as it gets and they still rock an unreal live show! I can't wait-Check out my Black on Red show on Saturday for some classics!

West Cork is in da house!

There's no Teenage Thursdays during the summer but I had to invite the girls from on tonight as they are doing some great things down in the Skibb direction. Check out their website for details of their big battle of the bands on Saturday. The girls were missing one of their crew (Emer), but they were still very good on air and I'm confident that we'll be hearing lots more from them in future years!

Catch them on and

Qool DJ Marv on Sunday!

Qool DJ Marv has been very close to some of my musical associates (like Aran from Shake in Galway and Fat City in Manchester) for years. Unbelievably, he has never spun in Cork before but this all changed on Sunday at the Savoy. He was excellent and showed what a class DJ he is by smoothly building it from solid unbderground hip-hop (by the likes of Mos Def and Roots Manuva) to some soul and disco classics ("All I Do" by Stevie Wonder was the tune of the night). I'm broadcasting some of the mix on Black on Red this Saturday and i'm delighted to announce that he will co-present this show with me for his return visit to the Savoy in October! Some of Cork's finest break-dancing talent helped out too, and it was great to see B-Boy Silt again!
Qool DJ Marv is a true gent aswell as a wicked DJ so I'm looking forward to many more good times with him in Cork. Check him out at Good to see my fellow blogger Pure Cork Boy in person too, always nice to put a face on a blog! Also, major shouts to the Wicked Chicken crew in Limerick, Jay-Ru in Waterford and Salvatore (pic on the left) for the antics on the dancefloor!

Yo this is my blog that's updated pretty much every day before 1pm Irish time

Hope you enjoy!
