New single taken from Melanin 9’s new album “Magna Carta” which releases on 3rd December on Red Snow Records.

The London emcee has become of the UK’s most respected lyricists since releasing his High Fidelity and 144,000 mixtapes, his work with Triple Darkness and live appearances at the renowned End of the Weak events and opening for artists such as Styles P, Immortal Technique and Wu Tang

His reputation for conscientious rhymes and intelligent wordplay has resulted in an ever growing fanbase in the UK and overseas, striking a chord with those who appreciate the “Golden Era” of hip hop.

The new release Landslide, produced by Anatomy and cuts by Evil Ed, follows on from the launch of his recent video for Organised Democracy.

Look out for further special releases and media coverage over the coming weeks and months, as Melanin 9 also puts together final plans for his album launch at Vibe Bar in London on 23rd November to mark the release.

Pre – orders of the CD version of the album can be placed via his site www.m9ether.bandcamp.com and those will be delivered a week ahead of the general public release as a mark of appreciation to his loyal support

Any djs not already serviced with the track but who would like the full 320 quality radio/clean edit, or if there are any other media enquiries about the album release, contact UrbanElite Promotions HERE

URBANELITE & BLITZ UK PROMOTIONS PRESENTS “ELEMENTZ”
(in association with The Hip Hop Chronicle)

ELEMENTZ is a new club night celebrating the traditional elements of hip hop – deejaying & turntablism, MCs, graffiti, b-boys & b-girls, open mic, beatboxing – all knowledge under one roof.

Planned as a quarterly event taking place throughout the year, the launch night takes place at Rhythm Factory, London on Thursday 26th April 2012.

Each event will host some of the biggest established names on the scene, while also showcasing new emerging talent and representing hip hop culture in all its forms.

Since the early days of the block parties in New York’s Bronx, hip hop has become a global phenomenon. A culture which has developed over the years representing all people irrespective of ethnic background, nationality, gender or religion. While Hip Hop Music has gone on to become a multi billion selling industry over the years, and has fragmented into various genres, the real spirit of hip hop culture remains within the various elements, practiced by those with an understanding of its principles.

The events will reflect the true meaning of hip hop and takes it back to its roots – at its best live with all elements in full effect

Resident DJ is London’s “1st Lady of Hip Hop” Sarah Love, recognized from her days performing at the city’s renowned Kung Fu events through to her time presenting for MTV Base, BBC 1Xtra and being the only female dj to be nominated twice as “Best DJ” for a MOBO award.

The events are in association with leading online media outlet The Hip Hop Chronicle.

Sister Elements launches a brand new hip hop night “Grandma’s Party” on Friday 30th March with a mix of live performances, dj sets and a short film world premiere

Performers

Fresh from a support slot with Souls of Mischief at Manchester’s Roadhouse on March 7th, Sister Elements, aka Sarah Sayeed, headlines by performing tracks from her new upcoming album. Described by BBC Asian Network’s Bobby Friction as “a 360 degree conscious artist & fearless lyricist”, she previously released her video .”Contentment”, and has since performed all over the world.

Further live sets on the night come from Manchester’s James Gill, some cool hip hop & funk sounds from female rapper Rain Freedom and a special performance from Ella Mesma, quoted by The Times as “Hip Hop dance’s ongoing potential for deeper expression”.

DJ Sets

Two of the UK’s hip hop heavyweights will be on dj duty. Sarah Love, fresh from supporting Aloe Blacc’s tour in December, and her own tour of Australia in January will be bringing you the real hiphop flavas she’s famous for since her days with Kung Fu, MTV and BBC 1Xtra. A new video interview with The Hip Hop Chronicle has just gone live where she speaks on the early days and her views on the scene today.

Excalibah is well known to the heads as an award winning dj for his Tales From The Legend BBC 1Xtra radio show where he gave early national airplay to artists such as Estelle, Pro Green, Sway and Plan B.

Film screening

There will also be the screening of the short film, “Hip Hop Had A Dream”. While researching his book of the same name released in 2008, the UK’s Damien Morgan interviewed a number of renowned names including Sugarhill Gang, Ty, Bashy, Ghostface Killah, Joe Budden, Professor Griff, Chuck D & Skinnyman for their views on the culture of hiphop, their early influences and the journey it has taken from the early days to now.

These interviews were documented in film and have just been edited together in a short 15 minute documentary set for its worldwide premiere at Grandma’s Party

Big night for lovers of Tru Skool hip hop & the emergence of another regular event showcasing the best in new UK talent.
