Released today by New Dawn Records, Underground Cartel’s “Sapientia EP” is the definition of international hip hop.

Produced by Kruze as a showcase for independent male and female artists from the USA, UK, Europe and Africa, the concept is represented in its truest form as all perform in their native tongues. 

Stateside there’s coast to coast representation courtesy of Swiss Precise (KBH crew Long Beach), Sacramento’s Crazy Ballhead, Midwest rapper Brandon J Atlas, Boston’s Yukonn MC, Black Market from Virginia, Tone Rome of Baltimore’s Raw Dialect crew and Brooklyn’s female MC Lockness. 

London’s Creamo and UK Rapstation host Mr CRF are joined by Zimbabwean Dumi Right, with a heavy European contingent in the form of Madrid’s El Meswy, Beni Blanco from French crew “Originaire du Sud”, German rapper Grizu, Croatia’s Magellano and Dutchman Bleek Wonder.  The Italian scene has double representation in the shape of female lyricist Marya and the late, great Primo Brown from legendary crew Cor Veleno.   

All stand shoulder to shoulder trading bars which move seamlessly through each track and territory.  The result is a fresh, eclectic and extremely rare mix of rhymes, beats and turntablism, essential listening for the global hip hop connoisseur.

New Dawn Records was first established in 1996, and were the original parent company of UrbanElite PR.

Becoming dormant in 2004 so that all resources could be redirected into developing and establishing the promotional division as one of the leading publicists of independent hip hop & rap music worldwide, the label are relaunching in 2019 with UEP reverting to its original role in house.



Just launched today, the official website www.newdawnrecs.com has all the details about the label’s history while outlining their plans for the future, including information regarding the initial set of releases specially formulated to mark their return.

Originally releasing on vinyl and CD formats, New Dawn Records have partnered with US company Ingrooves for worldwide digital distribution, and have four new EP’s in the pipeline representing a mix of back catalogue never before available in digital format, re-worked and produced originals and brand new exclusive tracks.

A mix of their two singles “Y’All Under Surveillance” and “Meltdown”, originally released on 12″ vinyl, both were championed by BBC Radio 1’s Steve Lamacq among others, enjoyed extensive international club support, received coverage in magazines such as Billboard, DJ and Blues & Soul, and were featured in independent films.

Included are remixes by Phi Life Cypher beatmeister DJ Nappa and the legendary DMC finalst DJ Krash Slaughta with further contributions by producers G-Sharp, Gripper and turntablist supreme DJ Mr Thing. The originals have also received the “re-work” treatment reflected in the ’18 edits.
