Ohio’s Copywrite releases his new album, God Save The King (Proper English Version) on 15th May 2012 on Man Bites Dog Records.

The album includes features by some of the hottest MCs from the UK and USA, including London’s Genesis Elijah, Iron Braydz and Mystro who also appear together in this latest video. “Royal Flush” is a special bonus track put together to celebrate the international flavour of the album.

Copywrite, Genesis Elijah, Mystro and Iron Braydz all go in hard over New York producer Dub Sonata’s beat, four MCs on top of their game delivering their own trademark punchlines and metaphors. The video was shot on location in Ohio and west London & has its UK TV debut airing on Flava TV (Channel 367) on Saturday 21st April.

Filmed in Ohio by Sean Grevencamp & in London by John Hendrickse of Dirty Media Ldn with Despa of Stay Fresh, edited by John Hendrickse, Kyle Kay Craig & Kadeem Henry

New York’s Double A.B. spent some time living in north London’s Tottenham.

As the news of the much publicized London riots of August 2011 spread globally, Double A.B. wrote the track London Calling reflecting on what he could see happening in his old neighbourhood. He got together with his old associate & fellow New Yorker Dub Sonata who produced the Clash sampled beat and then approached the UK’s highly rated MC Iron Braydz to feature.

Braydz goes in hard on the track as expected with plaudits for his “Devil May Cry” album last year still reverberating around UK hiphop

Double A.B. and Dub Sonata are currently working on a new album while Iron Braydz has new projects lined up for 2012 with some heavy hittin international names on board

The video was filmed in New York by Last Call Steeve and in London by Despa of Stay Fresh in September this year, edited & produced by Dirty Media London.

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
