New AA side single released today through New Dawn Records,  the third to be taken from London producer Ramson Badbonez’ new album “Lead by Example” out on August 27th.

“Black Hole Cypher” is an outstanding posse cut featuring a “Who’s Who” of the UK scene.  Relentless business from King Kashmere, Truemendous, MysDiggi, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, Gee Bag, Confucius, Jehst, Phoenix da Icefire and Ramson himself all piling in with fierce bars over a high octane beat. 

Switching gears, “Rap to the Future” resonates to a classic west coast beat as Dizzy Dustin (Ugly Duckling / Blown Celeb), Cali’s Mr Hooper and Canada’s Moka Only evoke the sights and sounds of hip hop back in the day, with exquisite cuts provided by last year’s IDA scratch champion Kompoze.

Available to stream & download at Apple, Tidal, Amazon, Spotify & Bandcamp

Fresh out the blocks today, the new single “Stay True” by London based producer Ramson Badbonez, the first to be taken from his album “Lead by Example” releasing through New Dawn Records on August 27th.

Rarely has a tracklist seen such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic share equal billing, and this joint sets the agenda early.  Neck muscles get a serious work out with a beat savagely torn to pieces by east coast warriors Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan with all their renowned verbal artillery in full effect.   “Rawer than the booger suga”, it’s formidable business, prize fighters trading fierce bars and pulling no punches in a lyrical onslaught which leaves contenders on the floor.  Hip hop addicts, crank this all the way up for the ultimate fix.

Available on all digital platforms including APPLE MUSIC, TIDAL MUSIC, AMAZON MUSIC, SPOTIFY & BANDCAMP

New Dawn Records have today announced details of the phenomenal new album “Lead by Example” by Ramson Badbonez set to release on August 27th 2021.

Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, the prolific rapper swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time in one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years. Unique in its nature, heavyweights from the USA, Canada and the UK share equal billing in a stellar line up of guest featured artists delivering a showcase of the highest calibre lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.

Beats influenced by original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are woven into a soundtrack which fuse the classic and modern eras laced with additional scratch sorcery courtesy of truntablists Kompoze, DJ Jazz T and DJ Miracle, each track precision cut as a backdrop for the gamut of verbal artistry to unleash their full artillery.

Many months in the making, rarely, if ever, has such an array of trans-Atlantic talent appeared together on the one record. Coast to coast, Reks, Skyzoo, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz and Justo the MC are just some of those standing shoulder to shoulder with British luminaries Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere and many more.

Benchmark standards are set high in Ramson’s new career progression while still allowing occasional room for his own continued lyrical prowess. This is an essential hip hop collector’s item with few comparisons, a landmark release.

London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown released their debut collaborative album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records on May 5th.

It has just been announced that the pair have been shortlisted as nominees in the “Best Independent Album” category at this year’s AIM Awards, an annual event hosted by The Association of Independent Music who represent UK artists, labels and affiliated businesses worldwide.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony will take place entirely online broadcasting on Wednesday August 12th. The full list of categories and a highly impressive line up of nominees is available HERE

The inclusion of “Panacea” is in recognition of the extraordinary musical and lyrical construction of the album. Husky’s unique blend of hip hop, rap, soul, dub, electro, r&b and bass provides the backdrop for Phoenix’s renowned wordplay and lyricism.

Given it was written in 2019, the subject matter is almost precognisant in nature, addressing global issues of well being, mental health, racism, climate change, the environment, knife crime, spirituality and aspiration, but refreshingly all delivered with the underlying theme of hope and determined optimism for a better future.

The category “Best Independent Album” is in association with Spotify where you can hear the album in full.

Connect with the pair on social media via Instagram @PhoenixDaFire @HuskyBrown.Official and Twitter @PhoenixDaFire @HuskyBrown

Out today, Brick City’s Tru Trilla follows up his recent release “Word of God” with the new single “God’s Sympathy”, the second from his new album “God of Barz” out May 29th through New Dawn Records.

Produced by Chicago’s DNA Beatz and featuring fellow New Jersey natives Fly Kwa and Confucious, the “hip hop warlords” enter the battlefield armed with a full artillery of verbal ballistics and take it in turn to unleash ferocious lyrical firepower, laying down gauntlets to all contenders over a bass heavy electro banger that reaches inside then tears out the soul. Set the dial high and prepare for the onslaught, this is the real deal.

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
