Released in May 2020, “Panacea” by London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown was nominated for “Best Independent Album” at last year’s AIM Awards. Postponed due to the pandemic, the rescheduled launch event takes place at Brixton Jamm on Friday November 12th as a joint headline with fellow London rapper and producer Ramson Badbonez who will be showcasing tracks from his recently released album “Lead by Example”, both out on New Dawn Records.
This new AA side single by the duo has been released today to mark the event. The Schifrin-esque soundtrack of “Shake Things Up” fuels a barrage of high octane bars unleashed from a fully loaded verbal armoury, while a sublime blend of choice beats and turntablism laces the specially commissioned remix of “Dark Rainbow Light” courtesy of prolific US producer and DJ Tone Spliff whose multiple credits include work with Recognize Ali, King Magnetic, Ruste Juxx, Melly-Mel, Vic Monroe and many more.
Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, prolific rapper Ramson Badbonez swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time with the release today of his explosive new album “Lead by Example” through New Dawn Records.
One of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years is also extremely rare in nature. Seldom, if ever, has such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from the USA, UK and Canada featured together on the one record, all standing shoulder to shoulder to deliver the highest standard lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.
Beats fused with original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz provide a powerful and diverse soundtrack laced with additional turntablism courtesy of ITF Advancement Champion DJ Jazz T, UK DMC Finalist DJ Miracle and IDA World Finalist Kompoze, while Ramson continues to showcase his own lyrical prowess on selected tracks. An essential collector’s item with few comparisons, a genuine landmark release.

London rapper & producer duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown released their groundbreaking new album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records on May 5th
Nominated for “Best Independent Album” at this year’s prestigious AIM Awards taking place on August 12th ( https://www.aimawards.co.uk/nominees ), Husky’s rare fusion of hip hop, electro, bass, dub, soul and r&b is the soundtrack for Phoenix’s highly creative narrative addressing many of today’s most pressing issues including climate change, racism, well being, mental health, knife crime and social aspiration, all delivered with a refreshing and optimistic counterpoint of hope, healing and reconciliation.
The first video from the album “The Humans are Coming” released today. Filmed by Global Faction and UKHH, the spectacular visuals edited by Sovereign Comics represent the environmental theme portrayed as a metaphorical letter of contrition to the mythical Gaia for the damage done to her realm.
Originally broadcast live on July 15th, Brick City rapper Tru Trilla sat down with host Sim of Washington DC’s popular Youtube Channel “The Front Stoop”.
In line with the channel’s focus on addressing broader current issues affecting society and hip hop directly, the pair first discussed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic both in a personal and professional context, and the veracity of information being provided to the public at large.
While playing tracks from the album, the subject of conscious lyricism and the role it plays within the wider forms of contemporary hip hop was considered and compared before the interview moved onto Tru’s history in the New Jersey scene.
He explains the origins of his group 050 Boyz of which he is a member with Prince Ak and Riq, the source of its name, and how this led to building with Shade 45’s DJ Eclipse and DJ Premier before touching upon his early affiliations with Naughty by Nature and Lords of the Underground.
Of course at the heart of the interview is his new album “God of Barz” where he breaks down the concepts, subject matters and construction, and speaks on his history and future working with the album’s producers from the States, UK and Europe.

With production by Chicago’s DNA Beatz, the UK’s Chat One, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square and Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve NJ/LA), the album also features Prince Ak, Confucious, Fly Kwa and Middy Murdock.
Available to stream and download on every major digital platform and store including APPLE, TIDAL and Spotify.
Rapper and producer Az Izz released his new album “Dopeliss” through New Dawn Records earlier his month, marking a return to the hip hop fold after several years having spent time working on tv, film and sports productions.
Formerly of the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, an extensive click which included Pace Won, Rah Digga, D.U. and Young Zee among their numbers, they were also noted at the time for a number of collaborative projects involving Wu Tang, The Fugees and a new emerging force from Detroit by the name of D12.
Known for a quirky and humorous approach to his rhyme schemes, the album musically also represents the evolution of the genre from the boom bap of “Ghetto” to electro bangers such as “Nunya” and “Gunz n Dice Games”.
