New single released today and the fourth to be taken from the album “Lead by Example” by London’s Ramson Badbonez, his debut as a producer.

Out on August 27th through New Dawn Records, rarely has such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic featured together on the one LP, resulting in a showcase of the highest quality rhymes, beats and turntablism.

Previous singles “Stay True”, “Lead by Example” and “Black Hole Cypher / Rap to the Future” bench marked the standards, and latest offering “Lame Duck” follows in the same vein as New Jersey verbal assassins Tru Trilla, Fly Kwa and Prince Ak are next to enter the ring with their trademark raw and uncompromising punchlines delivering knockout blows to all comers, the energy intensified by the potent bass and kicks combinations for a concoction of bars and beats that go the full distance.  Hard as nails.

Available to stream and download at Apple, Amazon, Tidal, Spotify & Bandcamp

New AA side single released today through New Dawn Records,  the third to be taken from London producer Ramson Badbonez’ new album “Lead by Example” out on August 27th.

“Black Hole Cypher” is an outstanding posse cut featuring a “Who’s Who” of the UK scene.  Relentless business from King Kashmere, Truemendous, MysDiggi, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, Gee Bag, Confucius, Jehst, Phoenix da Icefire and Ramson himself all piling in with fierce bars over a high octane beat. 

Switching gears, “Rap to the Future” resonates to a classic west coast beat as Dizzy Dustin (Ugly Duckling / Blown Celeb), Cali’s Mr Hooper and Canada’s Moka Only evoke the sights and sounds of hip hop back in the day, with exquisite cuts provided by last year’s IDA scratch champion Kompoze.

New heat released today by London producer Ramson Badbonez.

“Lead by Example” is the title track from his new album out on August 27th through New Dawn Records, and the second single taken from it following last month’s “Stay True” ft Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan”.

His debut behind the boards, the beatmaker has assembled a stellar line up of hip hop heavyweights from the US, UK and Canada as the guest featured artists, the latest joint laying down another early marker of the levels.

Driven by a soundtrack fuelled with soulful horns and smoky breaks, Ghana’s finest Recognize Ali jumps in the ring like his namesake to “fly like a butterfly and spit some heavy punches” with Brooklyn’s acclaimed lyrical marksmen Skyzoo and Juxx Diamondz, all taking it in turns to deliver a salvo of relentless rhymes that drop a bag full of jewels on the unsuspecting.  The beat gets bodied as masters of their craft dispatch verses with precision engineering while the UK’s turntablist DJ Jazz T provides the scratch sorcery.  A premium cut for the connoisseur.

Available to stream & download now from APPLE, TIDAL, AMAZON, SPOTIFY & BANDCAMP

This has been getting some serious airplay on stations in the US, Europe and UK in the past couple of weeks. Any DJ’s who would like full quality mp3’s (clean & dirty available) for their sets and shows can request it from us. Our contact details are HERE

New Dawn Records have today announced details of the phenomenal new album “Lead by Example” by Ramson Badbonez set to release on August 27th 2021.

Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, the prolific rapper swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time in one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years. Unique in its nature, heavyweights from the USA, Canada and the UK share equal billing in a stellar line up of guest featured artists delivering a showcase of the highest calibre lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.

Beats influenced by original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are woven into a soundtrack which fuse the classic and modern eras laced with additional scratch sorcery courtesy of truntablists Kompoze, DJ Jazz T and DJ Miracle, each track precision cut as a backdrop for the gamut of verbal artistry to unleash their full artillery.

Many months in the making, rarely, if ever, has such an array of trans-Atlantic talent appeared together on the one record. Coast to coast, Reks, Skyzoo, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz and Justo the MC are just some of those standing shoulder to shoulder with British luminaries Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere and many more.

Benchmark standards are set high in Ramson’s new career progression while still allowing occasional room for his own continued lyrical prowess. This is an essential hip hop collector’s item with few comparisons, a landmark release.

Earlier this month, NY state producer Frost Gamble – now resident in Winnipeg Canada – hit NYC to finish recording his new “Rare Fabric” EP with Tragedy Khadafi which releases on October 20th. It is available to pre-order on Bandcamp

While there, he took the opportunity to meet with several members of the press including journalist Shamika Sykes who sat down with him for online “My Hip Hop Life“.

The interview was recorded for Shamika’s “Hangout Session” series of interviews and was published yesterday.

The pair began by discussing his earliest days in hip hop, and how “The Message” was the single that first reeled him in as a fan. He then explains his initial link up with rapper Tone Chop, first as friendly rap battle rivals before refocusing on beatmaking. The pair have the new album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” releasing on September 29th featuring Kool G Rap, D.N.A., Tragedy Khadafi, Planet Asia and Canadian upcomer White Rhino. Available again to pre-order through 22 Entertainment in digital and CD formats HERE

Moving onto the subject of production more generally, Frost compares his original recording techniques through tape splicing and the MPC to the current technology used, explaining methods are of secondary importance to the result having “a soul”. Citing Diamond D, The Beatnuts, Pete Rock and Madlib as some of his influences, the conversation turns to Fat Joe’s recent comments that “boom bap’s not the wave anymore”.

Frost speaks on the over indulgence in labelling genres, stating “ultimately everyone is replicating what Kool Herc did” as an evolved extension of the turntable, with many contemporary styles having a comparatively shorter shelf life.

This leads him to outline his own longevity and how advice helped him adapt and work within the modern music industry which has resulted in his deal with 22 Entertainment.

Following his views on the current Canadian scene, he then discusses the development of his own stable of artists, his new work with Horseshoe Gang and Royce da 5’9″, the aforementioned albums and his new “I Missed My Bus” project which includes guest artists Skyzoo, Ras Kass, Ruste Juxx, KXNG Crooked, Rah Digga, Guilty Simpson and more.
