Over 3 days, 14th, 15th & 16th September, we arranged 5 video shoots with UK artists linked to future releases from Stateside artists Copywrite & Double AB.

On the first day, we were with Mystro, Genesis Elijah and Iron Braydz in Ladbroke Grove to film 3 of these. Mystro appears on Copywrite’s track Pick Up Stix, also featuring Sean Price, Iron Braydz appears on a track from Double AB “London’s Calling”, and all 3 appear on a new posse cut with Copywrite. Copywrite’s album “God Save The King” is due for release in the first quarter of 2012.

A number of media also dropped by to check out what was happening, including Soulculture, The Grime Report, BSomebody TV, Niji Magazine, Code Emphasis, Lime, and The Hip Hop Chronicle. Mystro, Gen & Braydz gave an impromptu “Big Man Ting” interview for The Hip Hop Chronicle (see below)

On the final day we were over at Hammersmith to meet up with Context MC who had already appeared on a remix for Copywrite’s labelmate Vast Aire, on the track “Cannon on Samus”. The sequence was shot for a track “Ghost in the Machine” down at the Thames. Special mention to the woman who told us she could “arrange” for a variety of birds to appear in the video & offered a feather as proof. You have a sponsorship deal with Thunderbird in the making there sweetheart…..!

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

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
