Oakland’s hip hop legends Souls of Mischief return to the UK and Europe for the first time in 2 years since their “Montezuma’s Revenge” tour.

It’s almost 20 years since the release of the classic ’93 Til Infinity’, but the group members, as part of the Hieroglyphics Crew, have remained one of the most prolific artists on the scene with numerous solo and group releases on Hiero Imperium Records. They still tour regularly all over the United States and Canada, and are due to perform at SXSW on their return from Europe

2012 starts with three solo albums being released in quick succession.

Tajai has already released his new collaboration with Sleeprockers “Machine Language”

Opio is set to release his new album “Vultures Wisdom Volume 2” on 28 February

Phesto’s new album “Background Check” drops on 13 March. Taken from Background Check is the bangin single “Every Detail” with a drivin beat courtesy of the ever dependable Lalo Schifrin. Check out the video below

The European tour takes in Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Germany and Belgium, while UK fans can expect to hear a mix of new material and the old classics on the following dates

Taken from Souls of Mischief’s 2010 album “Montezuma’s Revenge”, the “Mr Freeman Skit”

Tajai takes a call from actor Morgan Freeman offering fatherly advice on his hiphop career and lets him in on some details for a future acting role….lol

The album is generally available online and can be bought with a range of merchandise from http://www.hieroglyphics.com

Produced by Prince Paul, the tracklisting includes choice cuts such as Proper Aim, For Real Y’All and Postal

Look out for a possible European tour in the first half of 2012.

THE LOCK IN BLOG

We have just launched a new blog on Tumblr, “The Lock In”

As a company, Urbanelite Promotions have several online platforms on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, various blogs etc to help promote our international client base

We decided to launch a less formal platform on tumblr to highlight anything that entertained or interested us. This could be news, videos, tracks, sport, music industry “advice”, anything of any nature that we just felt like posting.

This will also be a platform for artists & labels, most likely involved in hiphop, rap, r&b, soul or any other form of “urban” music who we may not be directly involved with, but we like, to have their videos or tracks uploaded. Any artists interested in having their material or details of events added should check the site first, all the contact details are there.

As a taster, we have uploaded some examples, including a rare interview with Souls of Mischief & Sarah Love & “tour stories” from their time in the UK supporting the release of the album Montezuma’s Revenge, when we took D12 to meet Tim Westwood & news of their tour last year & dates in the Uk this year, and some other videos of Stateside & UK artists such as Copywrite, Vast Aire, Supar Novar, Depprooted & we’ll be adding more soon. We also uploaded a couple examples of our 8Tracks mixes featuring international hiphop artists we’ve been in touch with over the years.

Here are a couple examples (the full tracklistings are on the new blog)

Mix 1 incl Phi Life Cypher, Genesis Elijah, Epsilon Project & Classified

http://8tracks.com/mixes/301217/player_v3

Mix 2 incl MC Life, Sway, Skinnyman, Vast Aire, 6th Sense, Saigon, Eternia, Scram Jones

http://8tracks.com/mixes/343905/player_v3

Every week or so we’ll then summarize the latest content in our various other online platforms. Only submissions to the contact quoted at the tumblr page will be considered. General mp3 blast companies need not apply….!

Otherwise, drop by & if you want added, drop us a line
