Diatribe & The Crimson Underground are a two piece Hip Hop Electronica outfit from Derry City in the north of Ireland. | Their album The Information Age L.P is available now on independent label Padded Chamber Recordings.


“In an ‘information age’, knowledge is power. Just like The Clash and Public Enemy, Diatribe & The Crimson Underground are a ‘news giving’ group. No stray bullets, MC Diatribe’s raps are distilled socio-political rage, focused and sharp. Everything from the global pharmaceutical industry to attacks on civil liberties are in the crosshairs and the beats don’t miss either. From whispered spray cans creeping up from the street to hammer blows, the tense production paints and eviscerates. Get informed!”

(Stephen McCauley - BBC Electric Mainline)

“Danny Diatribe is an MC based in Manchester, originally from Derry. Danny has been representing on the Manchester hip hop scene for some time and finally I get the chance to show the world how dope he is. He has teamed up with The Crimson Underground to produce this dope track. An electronic sounding beat, which is reminiscent of Tipper or Danny Breaks production, teamed up with Danny’s distinct flow and accent makes for an extra nice joint.”

(DJ A Up – Word Is Bond)
