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.

Rapper and producer Az Izz, formerly of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, returns with the self produced AA side single “Ghetto” b/w “Crazy” out today, the third from his new album “Dopeliss” releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.

Together with Pacewon, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit at the time, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az marks his arrival back with a first major solo offering in several years which blends the sounds of hip hop through the ages.       

On “Ghetto”, the classic sound of the east coast prevails through guitar hooks and blaring brass on journeys to the gritty underbelly of the city, bars portraying street tales from the hood in the daily battle between survival and aspiration. Meanwhile on “Crazy”, aptly named for these times, heavy kicks and electronica fuel the adrenaline of a chaotic Brick City ride accompanied by fellow group member D.U.

The production brings extra layers and dynamics courtesy of Chicago’s DNA Beatz, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square, the UK’s Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve), originally of New Jersey and now resident in Los Angeles.   Rugged, raw and hardwired into the psyche of the street, this one’s for the heads.

London’s rapper & producer duo Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown warm up for the release of their phenomenal new album “Panacea” on May 5th with this new single “The Humans are Coming” b/w “Travelling Buddy” out today through New Dawn Records.

As expected of the Triple Darkness member, Phoenix combines the highest caliber rhyme skills and imaginative wordplay to tackle many of the most pressing issues facing society today, none more so than in the new AA side.  Amidst the frenzy of Husky’s highly charged electronica fuelling “The Humans are Coming”, Phoenix pens a letter of contrition to the mythological Gaia for the damage done to her environment, while the atmospheric “Travelling Buddy” is a poignant message of empathy & support to all facing the challenges of mental health issues.
