Originally the in house promotional arm of a now dormant independent UK hip hop label, UrbanElite PR became wholly independent in 2005 and have since worked with a wide range of artists and labels from the United States, Canada and UK.
We specialize in hip hop and rap EP & album releases, although we have also promoted r&b, dubstep, dance, drum & bass and various other emerging underground genres. Our ARTISTS, SINGLES, PREVIOUS CAMPAIGNS & PRESS pages provide examples of the artists and specific style of hip hop we work with, both in terms of preference and marketability. Due to the history and origins of the Company, we have over 20 years’ experience in the British hip hop & urban music industry.
Our media promotions activity means that we are in touch on a daily basis with an extensive number of contacts within independent specialist and “top line” printed and online press publications, further internet tastemaker platforms including tv, blogs & social media, radio stations, club djs and satellite television. Every conceivable media outlet is provided for by a fully inclusive and comprehensive service.
In addition we have many years’ experience in arranging and promoting events and tours in conjunction with affiliates in the UK & mainland Europe, providing logistical assistance to our label and artist clients such as distribution, design, audio & video file provision, and have also devised various artist & label development & marketing strategies.
EP & album campaigns are targeted primarily on the UK and European marketplace although since 2013 our operation has expanded to comprehensively cover publications in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Since the beginning of 2014 we have regularly serviced in excess of 200 titles in all of these territories.
In the case of single and video launches, while we prefer for those to be in conjunction with ongoing EP & album campaigns, “stand alone” campaigns are considered and again cover the UK, United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. Our experience includes arranging radio & blog “premieres” with some of the biggest stations and online platforms on both sides of the Atlantic.
