Out today and handpicked by London’s Ramson Badbonez, this new album contains eight instrumentals taken from the original version of “Lead by Example” which dropped in 2021 again through New Dawn Records, his debut release as a producer.

In what was one of the most impressive introductions to the production world witnessed for many years,  influences of original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are clear and fused together into a soundtrack which draws on both the classic and modern eras. 

A powerful combination of eclectic beats originally complimented by the highest calibre lyricism from a trans-Atlantic line up of guest featured artists rarely seen standing shoulder to shoulder together on the one record.  A stellar billing which included Reks, Skyzoo, the late Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz, Justo the MC and British heavyweights Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, Truemendous, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere all unleashing their full verbal artillery, with Ramson himself still showcasing his own lyrical prowess on selected tracks.

Another new remix from New Dawn Records, this time by label affiliate Shahin of the single ‘Lame Duck’ originally released in the summer of 2021 and taken from producer Ramson Badbonez’ album “Lead by Example”.

Classic funky drum and & bass loops underpin rugged and raw rhymes from New Jersey  trio Tru Trilla, Fly Kwa and Prince Ak.  Trading fierce bars and punchlines, an onslaught of potent hooks and jabs from the Brick City verbal marksmen are delivered to their targets in a series of lyrical body blows that leave contenders on the canvas.

In May 2020, New Dawn Records brought you “Panacea” by London rapper Phoenix da Icefire & producer Husky Brown. Nominated for “Best Independent Album” at the AIM Awards 2020 due to its incredible mix of hip hop, soul, r&b, dub and electronica providing the soundtrack for one of the most creative, relevant and prescient narratives of these turbulent times. Issues relating to the environment, physical and mental health, racism, prejudice, street life, aspirations and interdependence were all addressed with a refreshing underlying theme of hope for the future.

In August 2021 the label released “Lead by Example” by renowned London rapper Ramson Badbonez, his first time behind the boards. One of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years is also very rare in nature with such a phenomenal line up of guest featured artists from the UK, US and Canada all standing shoulder to shoulder on the one record delivering a showcase of the highest calibre beats, rhymes and turntablism.

Finally after the long term impact of the Covid 19 restrictions, you have the first chance to see tracks from these fantastic albums performed live on the same night at London’s Brixton Jamm on Friday November 12th 2021 thanks to our friends at Hoochinoo, the event organizer.

New single released today and the fourth to be taken from the album “Lead by Example” by London’s Ramson Badbonez, his debut as a producer.

Out on August 27th through New Dawn Records, rarely has such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic featured together on the one LP, resulting in a showcase of the highest quality rhymes, beats and turntablism.

Previous singles “Stay True”, “Lead by Example” and “Black Hole Cypher / Rap to the Future” bench marked the standards, and latest offering “Lame Duck” follows in the same vein as New Jersey verbal assassins Tru Trilla, Fly Kwa and Prince Ak are next to enter the ring with their trademark raw and uncompromising punchlines delivering knockout blows to all comers, the energy intensified by the potent bass and kicks combinations for a concoction of bars and beats that go the full distance.  Hard as nails.

New AA side single released today through New Dawn Records,  the third to be taken from London producer Ramson Badbonez’ new album “Lead by Example” out on August 27th.

“Black Hole Cypher” is an outstanding posse cut featuring a “Who’s Who” of the UK scene.  Relentless business from King Kashmere, Truemendous, MysDiggi, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, Gee Bag, Confucius, Jehst, Phoenix da Icefire and Ramson himself all piling in with fierce bars over a high octane beat. 

Switching gears, “Rap to the Future” resonates to a classic west coast beat as Dizzy Dustin (Ugly Duckling / Blown Celeb), Cali’s Mr Hooper and Canada’s Moka Only evoke the sights and sounds of hip hop back in the day, with exquisite cuts provided by last year’s IDA scratch champion Kompoze.
