New Dawn Records are starting 2020 with a bang. Hot on the heels of signing New Jersey’s Tru Trilla for his new projects this year, the label have just announced they will be releasing the new album “Panacea” by London duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown on May 5th.

Taken from their official website this morning, the statement added “We are delighted to be working with such highly talented artists and their ground breaking album, another reflection of this label’s identity and future intentions.”

In what is a quite astounding and ground breaking debut partnership, Husky’s productions fuse hip hop, soul, electronica, dub, bass and r&b resulting in a dynamic and energetic soundtrack.

As expected from the Triple Darkness member, Phoenix uses all of his verbal artillery to address a number of highly relevant issues for these times covering the environment, mental health, racism, knife crime, disengagement and social decay.

The full press release can be read HERE

Singles “Cosmic Soul / Seasons of You”, “Dark Rainbow Light / Sins of Gaia” and “The Humans are Coming / Travelling Buddy” will be released during March and April. They include remixes by Soul Brother Juice, Kashmere and Chemo and expect to see accompanying videos.

The pair have also confirmed an album launch party will take place at Brixton Jamm on Friday May 8th in association with Hoochinoo Events with full details to follow shortly.

The label have just launched the video trailer for the album today

London’s Melanin 9 ( AKA M9) releases his debut album “Magna Carta” on 3rd December 2012

He’s built up a reputation as one of the country’s most gifted emcees since working with producers Beat Butcha and Chemo on his first Mixtape “High Fidelity” in 2007, and again in 2008 when he launched “144,000” with contributions from Bronze Nazareth, Jon Phonics, Jehst and his group Triple Darkness.

While rippin the mic at events such as “End of the Weak” or opening for international artists Styles-P, Immortal Technique and Wu Tang, he released the highly rated “Orion’s Stencil” in 2010 and featured on tracks by Killah Priest, Rewd Adams, Terra Firma, Copywrite and Logic.

The new 14 track album drops on Red Snow Records and has been a long time in the making, but is rammed full of slammin’ beats and hard hittin’ rhymes. It includes features from Triple Darkness and Flipmode veteran Roc Marciano with production by Jehst, Anatomy, Parental, Tony Mahoney & Ohbliv.

The second video release “Organised Democracy” launched today via Global Faction. Look out for a string of special single releases and bonus cuts droppin over the coming months
