Release date 9th November, 2020
Fresh off his latest release “Better Than This,” Irish rapper Craig Cooney has teamed up with Irish producer and DJ Emmet Glascott to remix one of Craig’s recent releases, “Young Forever.” The result is an energetic, hard hitting dance track with hip-hop vocals and a driving, deep house sound.
Originally released in July, “Young Forever” was recorded in Windmill Lane Studios by engineer and producer Cormac Kavanagh.
The original song is a laid back, nostalgic track in which Craig reflects on childhood memories. He says, “I find a lot of people lose touch with their former selves and the memories that made us into who we are today. I wrote Young Forever about the best years of our lives when we were all carefree; I want people to press play on this song when they want to press pause on life and go on a trip down memory lane.”
Craig Cooney has been pursuing music professionally for the past three years and has multiple headline shows under his belt. His fifth ever show was in the Olympia Theatre supporting Gavin James. He has recently renewed his contract with Fluttertone and has multiple releases lined up. He is a unique artist who tells stories through his songs and has gained a popularity through his freestyling. His fan base grows stronger every day and he plans to continue changing the minds of people who think hip-hop is one dimensional.
Emmet Glascott is a producer and DJ with an eclectic musical style and influences. His releases have garnered local and international radio play, press attention, and Spotify traction. His recent single “Sorry” went to #1 on the Irish Charts. He has been signed to the No: 1 Irish DJ John Gibbon’s label BLINDsided, as well as Louise Dacosta’s label Decosta Records and Dutch label Wolfrage Recordings.
Young Forever is an upbeat dance track with nostalgic lyrics. The lyrics of this house music track reflect on childhood memories and times gone by. This is an incredible remix by Rapper Craig Cooney and Producer and DJ Emmet Glascott. -Jo
