The past few years have proven to be an exceptionally busy and productive time for us, not least due to our various activities evolving beyond the original UK and European marketplaces.

This natural expansion developed over 5 years means we also now operate within the United States, Canada and Australia in addition to some further residual territories.

Simultaneously we streamlined some aspects of our promotional services which are now concentric around core products, typically EP’s and albums incorporating any affiliated singles or videos. In turn, this enabled us to provide further logistical support assistance for our clients which has regularly proven highly beneficial given we predominantly operate within the independent sector often working with new, emerging and developing artists and labels.

Handling publicity for an established artist is very different in nature to that of a new or emerging name, as are the promotional procedures.

Having worked with both categories for over a decade, and with a more re-alligned focus on the latter, our experience means we understand the multiple factors which media will consider in their decision making processes.

Consequently the additional guidance, assistance and support we regularly provide has proven pivotal in consistently securing a high turnover of coverage and airplay internationally, irrespective of an artist’s original perceived standing.

Our re-structure also means that while hip hop and rap music has diversified and become in itself multi-genre, by specializing in defined niche markets we ensure your music is provided to the most appropriate targets.

While our main site page is updated primarily with news of ongoing campaigns such as new published coverage, reviews, interviews and general release information, the pages provide all the details you would require to gain a clear understanding of all the services we provide, and the marketplace within which we operate. They are linked below as follows :

THE LOCK IN BLOG

We have just launched a new blog on Tumblr, “The Lock In”

As a company, Urbanelite Promotions have several online platforms on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, various blogs etc to help promote our international client base

We decided to launch a less formal platform on tumblr to highlight anything that entertained or interested us. This could be news, videos, tracks, sport, music industry “advice”, anything of any nature that we just felt like posting.

This will also be a platform for artists & labels, most likely involved in hiphop, rap, r&b, soul or any other form of “urban” music who we may not be directly involved with, but we like, to have their videos or tracks uploaded. Any artists interested in having their material or details of events added should check the site first, all the contact details are there.

As a taster, we have uploaded some examples, including a rare interview with Souls of Mischief & Sarah Love & “tour stories” from their time in the UK supporting the release of the album Montezuma’s Revenge, when we took D12 to meet Tim Westwood & news of their tour last year & dates in the Uk this year, and some other videos of Stateside & UK artists such as Copywrite, Vast Aire, Supar Novar, Depprooted & we’ll be adding more soon. We also uploaded a couple examples of our 8Tracks mixes featuring international hiphop artists we’ve been in touch with over the years.

Here are a couple examples (the full tracklistings are on the new blog)

Mix 1 incl Phi Life Cypher, Genesis Elijah, Epsilon Project & Classified

http://8tracks.com/mixes/301217/player_v3

Mix 2 incl MC Life, Sway, Skinnyman, Vast Aire, 6th Sense, Saigon, Eternia, Scram Jones

http://8tracks.com/mixes/343905/player_v3

Every week or so we’ll then summarize the latest content in our various other online platforms. Only submissions to the contact quoted at the tumblr page will be considered. General mp3 blast companies need not apply….!

Otherwise, drop by & if you want added, drop us a line

DEEPROOTED ALBUM CAMPAIGN

DEEPROOTED SINGLE “CRAZY” OUT 24 AUGUST
ALBUM “D.E.E.P.R.O.O.T.E.D.” OUT 28 SEPTEMBER
DEEPROOTED

Cali’s DEEPROOTED were formed in 2004 by ex Battle Axe artist Mr Brady and local San Diego rap artist Johaz, to be joined later by producer DJ Artistic and female vocalist Just Brea.

Moving out from the studio to take their brand of electro soul laced hiphop to the masses, they were joined on stage by San Diego’s Urban Dynamics Crew Dancers, CeSe and Boosie, and developed a reputation as one of the hottest tickets in town, a must see at every venue.

Think The Roots mashed with The Fugees, and that’s the kind of funked up business we got goin on here.

For 3 consecutive years from 2005, DEEPROOTED were picking up various awards for their initial recordings and live performances in San Diego, and their first Vans Warped Tour in 2004 resulted in being invited to rejoin the nationwide circuit in 2005 & 2007.

They remain the only artist to score a straight 10 outta 10 three years running at the renowned Urban Network Conferences, and have opened for Public Enemy, The Roots, Common, KRS-1, Lupe Fiasco, X Clan, Wu Tang, Kurtis Blow, The Boot Camp Click and many others.

In the studio they have collaborated with Diamond D, Blu, Killah Priest, Rock of Helta Skelta, Exile, Jake One, Rhettmatic, Planet Asia, Guilty Simpson, Abstract Rude and OHNO, some of whom appear on the new album. Theyve had music featured on X Box and Play Station video games, and enjoyed support from some of the hottest urban stations in the States, including Jammin Z90, Blazin 98.9, Jazz 88.3, KJLU 88.9 and Power 106.

They have still found the time to do voluntary charity work, helping raise money and awareness in relation to the genocide in Darfur, as well as several local youth initiatives in schools and colleges.

With two previous albums released independently, they have now teamed up with Clear Label Records, headed by Souls of Mischief’s Tajai Massey for the new album’s global release. Also watch out for European tour dates in the autumn in support of Souls of Mischief.

CLR is a perfect home for DEEPROOTED, with the label’s policy on finding and taking on only the highest quality hiphop, r&b, soul and dance artists, providing them with a great support infrastructure while also allowing them to breathe, develop & retain their artistic control. It’s an organization operating on the premise of partnership with positive input from all sides, and will ensure that CLR becomes a name to watch on a global scale over the next couple of years.

DEEPROOTED’s introduction to the UK comes via their self titled album which displays a range of styles drawing from the best of traditional hiphop values, soulful vibes & off the scale contemporary production.

First single, CRAZY, is a big bass heavy slammin banger, with the mic gettin worked hard by the MCs and Just Brea providin the killer hook in the chorus. Watch for this at tv, clubs, radio and press. There will also be some choice cuts on the special promo cds being serviced for the djs that will keep all crowds happy.

Late summer will come the follow up, CELEBRATE b/w FADE, two tracks served chilled from the best bars in town. Again, be on the lookout for these at tv and on the radio stations.

All media enquiries, press & djs, email uepmusic@aol.com
