An ongoing collaborative project that pairs relatively new and already established hip-hop artists with beat makers and musicians in Ireland.

Each collaborating pair aimed to produce a song in a freestyle form. The artist detailed their style and taste to the beat maker who then produced music for them to write lyrics to. The final result was captured live via video and audio recording as a one-take, meaning the artists did not record the song in sections. The main aim of this project was to connect artists and musicians from different levels and locations and to establish a growing network of creatives in Ireland.
