Out today through recently relaunched label New Dawn Records, the new single “Smoke Filled Rooms” b/w “Skitzophonetic” by hip hop crew Belles in Monica.
Already on international rotation, “Smoke Filled Rooms” mixes electronica, turntablism and South Asian flavas to journey into the dark underbelly of the inner city with rhymes depicting a vision of drug squalor hell, while the booming kicks and soaring strings of “Skitzophonetic” provides the dramatic backdrop for a verbal tirade against generic conformity. Bonus cut “That All U Got?” invokes the spirit of Ali & Foreman leaving industry machinations slumped in the corner, towel thrown. The art of storytelling has returned on a release spanning all eras.
Taken from the “Natsukashii EP” out June 7th, the second in their ‘Lazarus’ series following April’s “Y’All in Meltdown EP”.
The latest release from the newly relaunched hip hop label New Dawn Records, the third within the space of a month
The brainchild of producer Kruze, Underground Cartel is an international
hip hop collaboration featuring artists from the USA, UK, Europe &
Africa, celebrating the traditions of global hip hop culture and unity.
Taken from the “Sapientia EP” out May 17th, “Evolution” has London’s
Creamo, Croatian rapper Magellano, Brandon J Atlas from the States and
the late great Primo Brown from legendary Italian crew Cor Veleno go
head to head over a driving beat fuelled by heavy kicks and Dabke
percussion, while the UK’s Rapstation host and MC Mr CRF trades bars
with Zimbabwe’s Dumi Right on “Diggin’ Deeper”, a funked up banger laced
with turntablism and classic soul.
