Relaunched last year after a 15 year hiatus, hip hop label New Dawn Records have confirmed today that they will be releasing a new EP and album by New Jersey’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla over the next few months.
In an official statement published this morning, the label commented
“We relish the prospect of working with an artist of Tru’s caliber and style which represents perfectly our direction of travel as we enter an exciting new phase since re-launching last year.”
We at UrbanElite PR have of course worked with Tru Trilla previously in 2015, then as a member of the 050 Boyz group as they released the classic album “Everything 050”
The worldwide media coverage and radio airplay reflected the appreciation and quality of the rhymes skills, lyricism and dope production, and ultimately led to both DJ Eclipse & DJ Premier inviting them as guests on their Sirius XM shows.
Tru’s new releases feature his 050 Boyz sparring partners Prince Ak and RIQ, and also include many of his long term Brick City affiliates on vocal and production duties, beginning with the new EP “The Seymour Chronicles” which releases on March 17th, the precursor to “God of Barz” which drops May 29th
Produced entirely by another New Jersey native Joey Loax, the EP represents the classic east coast sound while Tru, Prince Ak, RIQ and Fly Kwa all deliver their trademark fierce rhymes, hooks, hard bars and lyricism.An already heavyweight under card before the main event later in the year, the label have just launched a video trailer for the EP on Youtube
Taken from the EP, the singles “Warzone” and “20 to Life” will be released during February
Barely 5 months since relaunching after a 15 year hiatus, hip hop label New Dawn Records have beenbusy expanding their operation.
In the Spring they released a number of digital singles and EP’s by Belles in Monica and Underground Cartel having signed a distribution agreement with US company Ingrooves for that format.
However with a history of releasing vinyl and also with an eye to the future in relation to upcoming signing news, NDR have developed the facility to take orders from the public and retail directly from any location worldwide and are now shipping to several destinations.
They have begun with the limited remaining stock from their back catalogue, the original rare & classic Belles in Monica 12″ singles “Y’All Under Surveillance”, “Meltdown”, “What D’Ya Need” & “Smoke Filled Rooms b/w Skitzophonetic” all in mint condition, 200 gram. The short video on Youtube has just been made to demonstrate the prime condition of their stock and includes track listings and audio snippets of each single .
The singles include remixes by Phi Life Cypher producer DJ Nappa, legendary turntablist & II Tone Committee producer Krash Slaughta, renowned London duo Unsung Heroes, DMC finalst DJ Mr Thing and more.
Many of the tracks were included in the group’s specially formatted digital releases “Y’All in Meltdown” and “Natsukashii” and can be heard on Soundcloud & Spotify.
