Having just relaunched earlier this year with a series of digital only releases, hiphop label New Dawn Records have gone back to their roots of operating in the “physical era” by opening their new vinyl & CD store.

Describing vinyl particularly as “being in their DNA” the label have set up a physical store facility via their official website meaning that all orders placed are handled and processed by them directly to any destination worldwide.

This is just the latest development as the label re-structures after a 15 year hiatus while they plan ahead for the future.

Initially they have made some of their original back catalogue available, some extremely rare 200 gram vinyl and CD releases by hiphop crew Belles in Monica which includes single remixes by turntablist Krash Slaughta, Phi Life Cypher producer DJ Nappa, Unsung Heroes, G-Sharp, The Runaways, Gripper and DJ Mr Thing.

Several of the tracks were included in this year’s digital releases which you can hear on multiple streaming platforms including SOUNDCLOUD & SPOTIFY
