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

CD-RapManiacza

Constant Deviants release their new album “Avant Garde” on 12th May through their own Six2Six label. It will be available worldwide on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of their debut 12″ classic single “Competition Catch Speed Knots” when they first came together by performing at NY college parties. Then based in Brooklyn and New Jersey, they also worked on seperate projects for Arista and Roc-A-Fella before reforming specifically as a group in 2009 and setting up their own label

Their focus both as artists and a label on the traditional elements of hip hop helped them build strongly with the European market where there has always been a long standing appreciation for this style. This led to developing a working relationship with Swiss label SWC Records, releasing projects under the name Trilateral Commission, most recently the “Swiss Banks” movie. The soundtrack uses their album with the visual concept based on the best selling novel of the same name. M.I. plays an acting role in the film.
