Serial Broadsheet featuree T-Woc is back behind the decks in his new home of Cork, this Friday at Gulpd Cafe in the Triskel Arts Centre.

Joined by his buddy Micí Durnin from 8 ’til late, the boys are keeping the musical selections strictly on 45.

Grand for the indeterminately-genred dancing, one supposes.

T-Wocnew album Sentinelas due soon on Rudimentary

What you may need to know…

01. Last we checked in with T-Woc, aka beatmaker Mick Donohoe, he’d just released his Jetstar E.P. on Limerick label The Unscene.

02. His follow-up is the first ever long-player released on Belfast hip-hop label Rudimentary, and comes from a trip to Brazil. Happening across Sao Paulo’s Feirão de Uma Milhao LPs market, Donohoe went digging, and among the stacks were some children’s comics that boasted of soundtrack 7″s that had long gone missing. A soundtrack for a lost kid’s comic, then, is Sentinelas, named for the comic’s villains.

03. Pre-orders are available now via Rudimentary‘s Bandcamp. Streaming above is a two-song preview, including lead-off tune O Tronco.

04. The album launches on November 19th in the Triskel in Cork, joined by Cholera House, Diamond Dagger and Automatic Tasty.

Verdict: Warm, bright, and vibrant music that’ll go down equally with math-rock and post-rock nerds as with beat hounds.

T-WocJetstar Vol. II E.P.

Here’s what you might need to know:

1. Producer from Wicklow releasing through Limerick’s The Unscene label, responsible for putting out some of the cream of Irish hip-hop in recent years.

2. Wonky, bassy, dubby instrumental hip-hop with a gentle tinge of psychedelia and noise. “On a bit more of a tropical tip these days”, says himself.

3. Supported Eek-A-Mouse on Irish tour, and has produced an acclaimed mix for All City Records, among other things.

4. New E.P. Jetstar Vol. II came out this week on The Unscene’s Bandcamp page, available for streaming and download in the platform’s usual ridiculous array of formats.

5. This release was preceded with the first ever press release your writer has ever received that has been written entirely in the form of dialogue.

Verdict: Dig in. Quality, quirky, dubby instrumentalness that’s well worth a lash.
