The past few years have proven to be an exceptionally busy and productive time for us, not least due to our various activities evolving beyond the original UK and European marketplaces.

This natural expansion developed over 5 years means we also now operate within the United States, Canada and Australia in addition to some further residual territories.

Simultaneously we streamlined some aspects of our promotional services which are now concentric around core products, typically EP’s and albums incorporating any affiliated singles or videos. In turn, this enabled us to provide further logistical support assistance for our clients which has regularly proven highly beneficial given we predominantly operate within the independent sector often working with new, emerging and developing artists and labels.

Handling publicity for an established artist is very different in nature to that of a new or emerging name, as are the promotional procedures.

Having worked with both categories for over a decade, and with a more re-alligned focus on the latter, our experience means we understand the multiple factors which media will consider in their decision making processes.

Consequently the additional guidance, assistance and support we regularly provide has proven pivotal in consistently securing a high turnover of coverage and airplay internationally, irrespective of an artist’s original perceived standing.

Our re-structure also means that while hip hop and rap music has diversified and become in itself multi-genre, by specializing in defined niche markets we ensure your music is provided to the most appropriate targets.

While our main site page is updated primarily with news of ongoing campaigns such as new published coverage, reviews, interviews and general release information, the pages provide all the details you would require to gain a clear understanding of all the services we provide, and the marketplace within which we operate. They are linked below as follows :

PREVIOUS MEDIA CAMPAIGNS

Recommended for those wishing to understand the full range of services we provide, this section includes summaries of the activity we undertook for select cases with a particular focus on campaigns involving new and independent emerging artists, the logistical assistance provided and resultant media coverage.

SINGLES PROMOTED

Now always affiliated to an ongoing EP or album campaign, this section has music content as a guide to the style we most commonly promote. Similarly the ARTIST VIDEOS : MUSIC & INTERVIEWS section has a mix of official music videos together with media and radio interviews we arranged.

MAGAZINES & PRESS

This section contains snapshots of media coverage secured for select campaigns. Most of the artists we’ve worked with are listed HERE

London’s DJ Elma has a “Kick This” series on Youtube where she’s interviewed artists such as The Pharcyde, Slum Village, Genesis Elijah, Dublin’s Workin Class Records and many more

In late August, she met up with west London hip hop artist Apex Zero in Brixton to speak on his music, new album Reality Provoking Liberation and his various political views which form much of the subject matter for the album

As a student of African history, African-American figures such as Malcolm X & Huey Newton and politics, not surprisingly in this interview he outlines his views on corruption, social cohesion, oppression, justice, war, peace, the political systems at home and overseas and much more. It was his introduction to legendary hip hop artists such as Immortal Technique, Nas, Dead Prez, Tupac & Wu Tang which motivated the young man to study more, and it has come full circle as he now portrays his views as an Emcee.

Whether you agree or disagree with his points of view, he articulates his thoughts well whether in the form of his rhymes or in the setting of an interview, something which has been commented upon by various members of the media to date

Check the full interview on Youtube

The album releases on 28th October. There have already been several video & single releases from it, including Chaotic Revolt and A Meeting of the Continents featuring Hasan Salaam & Iron Braydz

CHAOTIC REVOLT

A MEETING OF THE CONTINENTS

Look out for much more news & coverage of this release over the coming months, including plans for a launch night in London in November

With just over a week and a half to go until the general public release of Melanin 9’s debut album Magna Carta on 3rd December, one of the UK’s leading online specialists for hip hop & rap music, Hip Hop Kings, is the latest to give the release their endorsement.

HHK regularly present exclusive freestyle and interview filmed content, are involved with some of the live events taking place in the north of England, and of course cover reviews, latest video and single releases and more

There’s no doubt that Magna Carta is one of the most soulful, heartfelt and honest pieces of music Ive heard in a long time” begins the review

Its this aspect of Melanin 9 as an artist, combined with his wordplay and lyricism that has established him as one of the most respected UK emcees, and has earned much media attention to this release

The review summarizes :

The support I’ve seen M9 receive is a testament to the quality of Magna Carta, and his decision to be truthful with his music and the direction of this album. I will be using this album as a reference to U.K Hip-Hop for many years to come, as certain elements of the music are unrivalled by M9’s peers
