2019 has been a landmark year for our overall operation.

Parent company & hip hop label New Dawn Records originally operated from 1996 – 2004 before lending all its resources to developing their in house promotions team UrbanElite PR to becoming one of the leading independent hip hop & rap publicists worldwide.

Now with this year’s label relaunch, UEP have reverted back to its original role.

With a vinyl back catalogue and having signed a digital distribution company with US company Ingrooves, New Dawn Records will look to release in both formats moving forward, and expect to announce some new roster additions in the weeks and months ahead.

To mark the relaunch, a series of specially commissioned EP’s have been released. Beginning with hip hop crew Belles in Monica’s “Y’All in Meltdown” on April 26th, it was followed by Underground Cartel’s “Sapientia” on May 17th, an international collaborative project featuring rappers from the USA, UK, France, Africa, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Germany & The Netherlands.

Belles in Monica’s second EP “Natsukashii” drops June 7th, and all are available to stream and download from Spotify, Apple, Deezer, Beatport, Soundcloud & Amazon.
