Released today through New Dawn Records, the new album “Dopeliss” by rapper and producer Az Izz of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz.

Together with Pace Won, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az has returned to the hip hop fold with his first major solo album in several years.  Largely self produced with additional contributions by Qua Z Mo, DJ 3rdRell and DJ Profluent, the guest featured artists include several of his fellow former group members and further luminaries from the local independent scene including Drift, Rube the Difference and Jaja Kenyatta.

From boom bap to hard driving electronic beats, the production maps the evolution of the east coast sound underpinned lyrically by the traditional art of storytelling, street life, aspirations and struggles.  Back in the game with another flag planted for the Garden State, essential listening.

New video out today by Brick City’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla, “Real Rap” featuring fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak is taken from his album “God of Barz” released through New Dawn Records on May 29th.

Filmed in downtown Newark just before the turn of the year, the pair trade verses over a hard edged gritty beat produced by Barcelona’s Sumerio Square.  Set on a verbal warpath, the seasoned veterans deliver punchline salvos of hard bars against weak representations and pale imitations in equal measure, dismantling defences with the ease of prize fighters earning stripes for their home State.  Some spicy heat for the street, 050 Dat ! 

Check it out on Youtube

The album available from all streaming platforms and digital stores includes further production by Chicago’s DNA Beatz, the UK’s Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve NJ/LA) with New Jersey natives Fly Kwa, Confucious and Middy Murdock appearing as the additional guest featured artists.

Rapper and producer Az Izz, formerly of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, returns with the self produced AA side single “Ghetto” b/w “Crazy” out today, the third from his new album “Dopeliss” releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.

Together with Pacewon, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit at the time, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az marks his arrival back with a first major solo offering in several years which blends the sounds of hip hop through the ages.       

On “Ghetto”, the classic sound of the east coast prevails through guitar hooks and blaring brass on journeys to the gritty underbelly of the city, bars portraying street tales from the hood in the daily battle between survival and aspiration. Meanwhile on “Crazy”, aptly named for these times, heavy kicks and electronica fuel the adrenaline of a chaotic Brick City ride accompanied by fellow group member D.U.

A month after releasing their groundbreaking new album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records, London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown chopped it up with the UK’s online Urban Vault.

In the new interview just published the pair discuss how they came to work together, the construction and concepts behind the album and the aspects of which they are particularly proudest.

Phoenix also provides further information about his Sovereign Comics company and the community projects with which they are involved while future plans are also outlined. Read the article in full HERE

Released on May 5th, “Panacea” represents quite an exceptional body of work, both in terms of its fusion of hip hop, bass, dub, r&b, soul and electro weaved together by Husky’s production techniques, and the extremely powerful subject matter addressed by Phoenix, sadly all too relevant given recent developments.

Issues relating to the environment, well being, mental health, knife crime, positive aspirations, disengagement, The Windrush scandal and institutional racism more generally are all tackled with highly skilled lyricism, but refreshingly always with the underlying theme of offering solutions and hope for a positive future.

Look out for an official video for the track “The Humans are Coming” in the not too distant future, but meanwhile you can stream and download the album from Apple / iTunes, Tidal, Amazon or here on Spotify

Brick City rapper Tru Trilla released his much anticipated new album “God of Barz” through New Dawn Records on Friday May 29th 2020.

Rammed full of gritty rhymes, punchline bars and raucous lyricism, it is reminiscent of hip hop’s halcyon era, aided and abetted by guest featured artists Fly Kwa, Confucious, Middy Murdock and fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak.

The album also benefits from the different production styles provided by Chicago’s DNA Beatz, the UK’s Chat One, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve) originally of New Jersey and now based in Los Angeles. The sum parts contributing to the greater whole, pure energy being the common denominator.

London’s rapper / producer duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown have today released their highly impressive new album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records.

As a member of Triple Darkness, Phoenix has long been regarded by many both at home and overseas as one of the most gifted lyricists to emerge from the UK. Husky’s productions are a rare and dynamic fusion of contemporary hip hop, electronica, dub, bass, r&b and soul which provide the soundtrack for a narrative addressing many of today’s most pressing issues.  Delivered with trademark dexterous rhymes and creative wordplay, Phoenix sets his existential sights on the environment, mental health, knife crime, racism, well being, relationships and inner city life. 

Facing the challenges head on, the engaging commentary still retains a refreshing message of hope at its core related through metaphorical concepts as abstract as they are grounded in reality. A multidimensional and unique debut offering which pushes boundaries and breaks from formulaic convention.  Essential listening. 

Available to stream and download at APPLE, AMAZON & TIDAL. Also streaming at Spotify and Soundcloud
