Hip hop crew Belles in Monica have today released their new EP “Natsukashii”, the second in their ‘Lazarus’ series and follow up to April’s “Y’All in Meltdown”.

Out on New Dawn Records who relaunched this year after a 15 year hiatus, journeys are taken to the dark underbelly of inner city drug squalor in “Smoke Filled Rooms”, industry machinations are exposed in “That All U Got?” while the booming production of “Skitzophentic” provides the backdrop for a tirade against generic conformity.

“Venom” attacks multimedia’s clandestine misinformation schemes while the mood is switched in “Hip Hop”, a funked up, sample laden ode to the culture. A soundtrack incorporating tight eclectic beats, turntablism and filmic themes concludes as the final credits roll with “Resistance is Futile”, a bonfire of the vanities in a metaphorical dystopia.

The past few years have proven to be an exceptionally busy and productive time for us, not least due to our various activities evolving beyond the original UK and European marketplaces.

This natural expansion developed over 5 years means we also now operate within the United States, Canada and Australia in addition to some further residual territories.

Simultaneously we streamlined some aspects of our promotional services which are now concentric around core products, typically EP’s and albums incorporating any affiliated singles or videos. In turn, this enabled us to provide further logistical support assistance for our clients which has regularly proven highly beneficial given we predominantly operate within the independent sector often working with new, emerging and developing artists and labels.

Handling publicity for an established artist is very different in nature to that of a new or emerging name, as are the promotional procedures.

Having worked with both categories for over a decade, and with a more re-alligned focus on the latter, our experience means we understand the multiple factors which media will consider in their decision making processes.

Consequently the additional guidance, assistance and support we regularly provide has proven pivotal in consistently securing a high turnover of coverage and airplay internationally, irrespective of an artist’s original perceived standing.

Our re-structure also means that while hip hop and rap music has diversified and become in itself multi-genre, by specializing in defined niche markets we ensure your music is provided to the most appropriate targets.

While our main site page is updated primarily with news of ongoing campaigns such as new published coverage, reviews, interviews and general release information, the pages provide all the details you would require to gain a clear understanding of all the services we provide, and the marketplace within which we operate. They are linked below as follows :
