THE LOCK IN BLOG

We have just launched a new blog on Tumblr, “The Lock In”

As a company, Urbanelite Promotions have several online platforms on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, various blogs etc to help promote our international client base

We decided to launch a less formal platform on tumblr to highlight anything that entertained or interested us. This could be news, videos, tracks, sport, music industry “advice”, anything of any nature that we just felt like posting.

This will also be a platform for artists & labels, most likely involved in hiphop, rap, r&b, soul or any other form of “urban” music who we may not be directly involved with, but we like, to have their videos or tracks uploaded. Any artists interested in having their material or details of events added should check the site first, all the contact details are there.

As a taster, we have uploaded some examples, including a rare interview with Souls of Mischief & Sarah Love & “tour stories” from their time in the UK supporting the release of the album Montezuma’s Revenge, when we took D12 to meet Tim Westwood & news of their tour last year & dates in the Uk this year, and some other videos of Stateside & UK artists such as Copywrite, Vast Aire, Supar Novar, Depprooted & we’ll be adding more soon. We also uploaded a couple examples of our 8Tracks mixes featuring international hiphop artists we’ve been in touch with over the years.

Here are a couple examples (the full tracklistings are on the new blog)

Mix 1 incl Phi Life Cypher, Genesis Elijah, Epsilon Project & Classified

http://8tracks.com/mixes/301217/player_v3

Mix 2 incl MC Life, Sway, Skinnyman, Vast Aire, 6th Sense, Saigon, Eternia, Scram Jones

http://8tracks.com/mixes/343905/player_v3

Every week or so we’ll then summarize the latest content in our various other online platforms. Only submissions to the contact quoted at the tumblr page will be considered. General mp3 blast companies need not apply….!

Otherwise, drop by & if you want added, drop us a line

Ohio’s Copywrite drops this banger “PYT” with the UK’s Loudmouth Melvin and Skillit as a pre-cursor to his new album “God Save The King”, due out late autumn on Man Bites Dog Records. The track produced by Kount Fif also features Jay Notes.

He started out in the game in 1998 as part of the still current group Mhz, and became known for working with producers RJD2 on The High Exhaulted, Jay Zone & Jay Dilla on Cruise Control and featured with the UK’s Rhyme Asylum in 2007. He’s earned the reputation in the States as a battle hardened MC with punchlines for days, and spent the past year putting together the new solo album as well as the new Mhz album “Megacy” due out 2012.

“God Save The King” includes features from Mystro, Genesis Elijah, Iron Braydz, Melanin 9, Akala, Bigz Flygerian, SAS, Don Strapzy, Context & Don Jaga, standing shoulder to shoulder with Sean Price, Royce da 5 9, Crooked I, Inspectah Deck, Roc Marciano, and more.

He will be in the UK shortly for some video shoots, and the associated tour is being arranged in the UK and Europe for February 2012.
