New EP out today through the recently re-launched label New Dawn Records.

’18 Showdown’ includes all the remixes produced by the legendary turntablist Krash Slaughta (DMC Finals / II Tone Committee) for the Belles in Monica crew which were originally released on 12″ vinyl with the addition of new cut “Venom”.  All are now available to stream and download for the first time.

The DJ’s renowned production style fusing imaginative soundscapes, driving beats and immense scratch skills combine with storytelling rhymes and hard bars.  From the fuel injected funk and cutting frenzy of “Meltdown”, to the sinister tension of “What D’Ya Need” and the sonic chaos of “Resistance is Futile”, the EP is a rare collection of artistically expressive and powerful hip hop immersed in a golden era just as a new decade comes in to view.

Krash Slaughta continues to release new material and perform live regularly.  New Dawn Records will announce a new release schedule for 2020 by artists from the USA and UK shortly.

Available to stream and download from APPLE, AMAZON, NAPSTER, BEATPORT, DEEZER, and of course Soundcloud & Spotify

ATM-RhymeJunkieInterview

Fair to say that 2016 will have proven to be a busy year for Long Beach hip hop crew Horseshoe Gang.

They released their new album “Anti-Trap Music” in April, the album immediately entering iTunes charts’ Top 50 in 15 countries with Amazon’s initial CD stock sold out in a day.

Their elder brother KXNG Crooked (aka Crooked I) had been developing a new talent show “One Shot” which is now due for first broadcast this month with the group featuring as judges, and in September a second limited edition album “4 Brothers” will be released, again through Seven 13 Entertainment.

Peter Johnstone from US online magazine Rhyme Junkie caught up with them recently to discuss their experience of the music industry, their views on trap music, the different lyrical styles each member brings to the group, the political content of tracks such as “Shoe-icide Squad” and what people can expect from “4 Brothers”.
