New Dawn Records have rounded off another busy year by releasing a new mix, a mash up of some of their best known single releases from 2002 to 2022.

“New Dawn Records – The Singles [Mixdown 22], includes some of the classics from back in the day by the Belles in Monica crew with remixes by Krash Slaughta and G-Sharp, select gems from last year’s albums “God of Barz” by New Jersey’s Tru Trilla and the award nominated “Panacea” by London duo Phoenix da Icefire, and of course the straight bangers from this year’s “Lead by Example”, the debut production from London’s Ramson Badbonez featuring hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic.

An official video of the mix has just been released on the label’s Youtube channel

An audio only stream is also available on Soundcloud

Last week, Edinburgh based journalist Peter Johnstone chopped it up with Detroit rapper ZotheJerk ahead of the release of his new album “Black Beach” on May 26th.

Produced by Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble, originally from NY State, it also features Sadat-X, Boldy James, Guilty Simpson, KXNG Crooked, Young Bleed, Tone Chop & more.

The resultant feature published by long running UK online “British Hip Hop” begins with a summary review of the album, noting its themes of relating the current experience of “black America” through skilled lyricism and storytelling, while in one of the stand out tracks “Keep Me Safe” representing the importance of providing strong paternal role models for the next generation.

The article finishes with a one to one interview where Zo touches upon his past, the main messages of the new album, working with Frost Gamble and progression from the underground scene.

READ THE FEATURE IN FULL HERE

The album will be releasing through 22 Entertainment and is available to pre-order on iTunes now – check it out HERE

The first single to be released on March 8th – and available from iTunes – was “Risk vs Reward” featuring Brand Nubian’s Sadat-X. A neckbreaker for the hip hop heads, take a listen to the audio stream

Zo and Frost are currently conducting interviews with media in the US, UK and Europe and are set to release their new video for the bonus cut “Axe Somebody” this Friday, April 7th. It’s got that true school essence with a big funky banger of a drum loop, so look out for that !
