Barely 5 months since relaunching after a 15 year hiatus, hip hop label New Dawn Records have been busy expanding their operation.

In the Spring they released a number of digital singles and EP’s by Belles in Monica and Underground Cartel having signed a distribution agreement with US company Ingrooves for that format.

However with a history of releasing vinyl and also with an eye to the future in relation to upcoming signing news, NDR have developed the facility to take orders from the public and retail directly from any location worldwide and are now shipping to several destinations.

They have begun with the limited remaining stock from their back catalogue, the original rare & classic Belles in Monica 12″ singles “Y’All Under Surveillance”, “Meltdown”, “What D’Ya Need” & “Smoke Filled Rooms b/w Skitzophonetic” all in mint condition, 200 gram. The short video on Youtube has just been made to demonstrate the prime condition of their stock and includes track listings and audio snippets of each single .

The singles include remixes by Phi Life Cypher producer DJ Nappa, legendary turntablist & II Tone Committee producer Krash Slaughta, renowned London duo Unsung Heroes, DMC finalst DJ Mr Thing and more.

Many of the tracks were included in the group’s specially formatted digital releases “Y’All in Meltdown” and “Natsukashii” and can be heard on Soundcloud & Spotify.

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”.

Available to download and stream on various online platforms and stores including SOUNDCLOUD  AMAZON  DEEZER  APPLE & SPOTIFY
