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. A night not to be missed for all hip hop connoisseurs.
Fresh out the blocks today, the new single “Stay True” by London based producer Ramson Badbonez, the first to be taken from his album “Lead by Example” releasing through New Dawn Records on August 27th.
Rarely has a tracklist seen such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic share equal billing, and this joint sets the agenda early. Neck muscles get a serious work out with a beat savagely torn to pieces by east coast warriors Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan with all their renowned verbal artillery in full effect. “Rawer than the booger suga”, it’s formidable business, prize fighters trading fierce bars and pulling no punches in a lyrical onslaught which leaves contenders on the floor. Hip hop addicts, crank this all the way up for the ultimate fix.
New Dawn Records have today announced details of the phenomenal new album “Lead by Example” by Ramson Badbonez set to release on August 27th 2021.
Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, the prolific rapper swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time in one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years. Unique in its nature, heavyweights from the USA, Canada and the UK share equal billing in a stellar line up of guest featured artists delivering a showcase of the highest calibre lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.
Beats influenced by original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are woven into a soundtrack which fuse the classic and modern eras laced with additional scratch sorcery courtesy of truntablists Kompoze, DJ Jazz T and DJ Miracle, each track precision cut as a backdrop for the gamut of verbal artistry to unleash their full artillery.
Many months in the making, rarely, if ever, has such an array of trans-Atlantic talent appeared together on the one record. Coast to coast, Reks, Skyzoo, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz and Justo the MC are just some of those standing shoulder to shoulder with British luminaries Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere and many more.
Benchmark standards are set high in Ramson’s new career progression while still allowing occasional room for his own continued lyrical prowess. This is an essential hip hop collector’s item with few comparisons, a landmark release.

Rapper and producer Az Izz released his new album “Dopeliss” through New Dawn Records earlier his month, marking a return to the hip hop fold after several years having spent time working on tv, film and sports productions.
Formerly of the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, an extensive click which included Pace Won, Rah Digga, D.U. and Young Zee among their numbers, they were also noted at the time for a number of collaborative projects involving Wu Tang, The Fugees and a new emerging force from Detroit by the name of D12.
Known for a quirky and humorous approach to his rhyme schemes, the album musically also represents the evolution of the genre from the boom bap of “Ghetto” to electro bangers such as “Nunya” and “Gunz n Dice Games”.

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.
A couple of in depth reviews have just been published by SoFlo Sound and Triple OT which articulate and reflect the overall concept and acknowledge the quality on offer.
