RighteousFury-PopCulturez

The new album “Righteous Fury by ex Guerilla War Tactix member Matt Maddox releases tomorrow 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.

Originally out of Long Beach California and currently resident in Kansas, the rapper has put several years’ work into this his sophomore release, and it includes all the key qualities of an authentic hip hop album – skilled lyricism and wordplay, quality beats and turntablism, and a well chosen selection of special guest features

UK online magazine PopCulturez are the latest to give their full endorsement in this new review published today. “Lyrically thick, this album takes things right back to hardcore rhyme spitting such as on the superb, uncompromising, ‘Murder Weapons.” as the magazine goes into further detail of the east meets west influence throughout, concluding “Without playing to the commercial galleries, this album hits hard with no filler, clocking in at 57 minutes to deliver a lean and mean collection“.

Urbanelite Promotions are now fully authorized to accept booking enquiries for London’s 1st Lady of Hiphop, DJ Sarah Love.

Sarah’s reputation grew from her early days deejaying at various Kung Fu events and on local London underground radio stations, and was soon presenting shows for specialist stations in the US, Europe, Australia and Africa.

This soon led to her receiving bookings from around the world, and cemented her position as one of the leading hiphop international club djs, noteworthy given the male dominance that still exists to this day.

In August 2007, Sarah joined the BBC’s urban music specialist station 1Xtra and presented the Friday night Hip Hop Mix Show. In 2008 she also presented the station’s weekend Breakfast show. The internet platform & prestige of being the BBC’s main hiphop dj established her name globally, and the station enjoyed a larger international audience as a result.

She was also instrumental in the launch of MTV Base in Africa as an official soundsystem DJ, and played live at many of MTV Europe’s official events. MTV then appointed her official VJ for the UK’s Base programme, appearing on Trevor Nelson’s “The Lick – Spanking New Music” & had her own monthly feature on the station’s “Good Look”. This was broadcast to the UK and 60 other countries.

In 2009, she was nominated in the “Best DJ” category at the MOBO’s, the only female to have ever received such recognition.

Sarah left BBC 1Xtra and MTV in 2010.

She has had subsequent online tv shows with Spine TV, Squeeze Radio, and still regularly features in many of the urban music specialist magazines.

In the past year she has played clubs in Africa, US, Australia, Europe and the UK and can count names such as Souls of Mischief, The Roots, Wu Tang, KRS-1 and many more as those with whom she has shared the stage.

The “One Woman Wrecking Machine” has a large social media presence, with nearly 5000 friends on FACEBOOK nearly 6000 followers on Twitter and updates these plus her blog via the official site at www.djsarahlove.com with all key events.

She is the official UK tour dj for Aloe Blacc in December 2011, and tours Australia in January 2012.

We are accepting enquiries from anywhere in the world for dates in November 2011 and from February 2012 onwards. There are some dates in December free at the moment, those being Tuesday 6th, Saturday 10th, Wednesday 14th and from Saturday 17th onwards

All enquiries should be sent to urbanelitepr@gmail.com and we guarantee a reply within 24 hours.
