With his new album “God Save the King (Proper English Version)” having dropped in August, Ohio’s Copywrite took time out recently to speak with Ayara Pommells for Stupid Dope

They discuss the concept behind the album and the differences between the “Proper English Version” and the version released to the US market, the differences and similarities in the US and UK hip hop scenes, and his new Mhz album “Megacy” – also recently covered in this month’s Clash Magazine “Rapture & Verse” column.

He speaks on how he rates artists such as Rhyme Asylum, Lady Sovereign, Radiohead, The Snowgoons, Slick Rick and Joe Budden and his views on female emcees Jean Grae, Kreayshawn, Eternia, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill & Roxanne Shante

The new Mhz album “Megacy” will be dropping over the next few months and should coincide with a planned tour of Europe & The UK in early 2013.

The UK ‘s leading online Hip Hop Magazine – The Hip Hop Chronicle – will be filming the event exclusively for future broadcast and will include footage of live performances and interviews with all of those involved on the night.

We are looking for 7 more successful entrants to take part in the battle competition on the night and get the opportunity to win the cash prize, be featured by The Hip Hop Chronicle and be crowned Elementz Champion at the club’s first event.

Urbanelite Promotions are now fully authorized to accept booking enquiries for London’s 1st Lady of Hiphop, DJ Sarah Love.

Sarah’s reputation grew from her early days deejaying at various Kung Fu events and on local London underground radio stations, and was soon presenting shows for specialist stations in the US, Europe, Australia and Africa.

This soon led to her receiving bookings from around the world, and cemented her position as one of the leading hiphop international club djs, noteworthy given the male dominance that still exists to this day.

In August 2007, Sarah joined the BBC’s urban music specialist station 1Xtra and presented the Friday night Hip Hop Mix Show. In 2008 she also presented the station’s weekend Breakfast show. The internet platform & prestige of being the BBC’s main hiphop dj established her name globally, and the station enjoyed a larger international audience as a result.

She was also instrumental in the launch of MTV Base in Africa as an official soundsystem DJ, and played live at many of MTV Europe’s official events. MTV then appointed her official VJ for the UK’s Base programme, appearing on Trevor Nelson’s “The Lick – Spanking New Music” & had her own monthly feature on the station’s “Good Look”. This was broadcast to the UK and 60 other countries.

In 2009, she was nominated in the “Best DJ” category at the MOBO’s, the only female to have ever received such recognition.

Sarah left BBC 1Xtra and MTV in 2010.

She has had subsequent online tv shows with Spine TV, Squeeze Radio, and still regularly features in many of the urban music specialist magazines.

In the past year she has played clubs in Africa, US, Australia, Europe and the UK and can count names such as Souls of Mischief, The Roots, Wu Tang, KRS-1 and many more as those with whom she has shared the stage.

The “One Woman Wrecking Machine” has a large social media presence, with nearly 5000 friends on FACEBOOK nearly 6000 followers on Twitter and updates these plus her blog via the official site at www.djsarahlove.com with all key events.

She is the official UK tour dj for Aloe Blacc in December 2011, and tours Australia in January 2012.

We are accepting enquiries from anywhere in the world for dates in November 2011 and from February 2012 onwards. There are some dates in December free at the moment, those being Tuesday 6th, Saturday 10th, Wednesday 14th and from Saturday 17th onwards

All enquiries should be sent to urbanelitepr@gmail.com and we guarantee a reply within 24 hours.
