New Dawn Records are proud to announce that we will be releasing the phenomenal new album “Panacea” by London duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown on May 5th 2020.
Phoenix will be known to many as a member of Triple Darkness, long regarded as one of the finest hip hop groups to emerge from the UK whose superior rhyme skills have seen their reputation grow at home and abroad.
This exceptional debut partnership brings a fresh perspective to the genre with Husky’s kaleidoscopic productions fusing hip hop, r&b, soul, dub, bass, reggae, electronica and jazz
As expected, Phoenix uses all of his creative verbal artillery to address a number of highly relevant issues for these volatile times covering the environment, mental health, racism, disengagement, knife crime and social decay, all with the aspiration of healing and reconciliation.
We are delighted to be working with such highly talented artists and their ground breaking album, another reflection of this label’s identity and future intentions.
The singles “Cosmic Soul / Seasons of You”, “Dark Rainbow Light / Sins of Gaia” and “The Humans are Coming / Travelling Buddy” will release over March and April and include remixes by Soul Brother Juice, Kashmere and Chemo.(More info in the “Releases” section above)
Full details of the album launch event taking place at Brixton Jamm on Friday 8th May in association with Hoochinoo Events will follow soon, meantime check out the video trailer for the album.
New Dawn Records are proud to announce the release of two upcoming projects by Brick City’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla in 2020.
“The Seymour Chronicles EP” out on March 17th is the precursor for his incredible new album “God of Barz” which drops May 29th.
Our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR worked with Tru previously in 2015 when as part of 050 Boyz they released the classic album “Everything 050” resulting in worldwide media coverage and live appearances on Sirius XM as guests of DJ Eclipse and DJ Premier.
The crew’s Prince Ak and RIQ together with regular affiliate Fly Kwa make guest appearances on the new EP which as you’d expect is packed with fierce rhymes, hooklines and hard bars with all delivering high on the verbal ballistics scale. Entirely produced by another New Jersey native Joey Loax, it represents the classic sound of the east coast and serves a tasty appetizer for the main course in May.
As a label, we relish the prospect of working with an artist of Tru’s caliber and style which represents perfectly our direction of travel as we enter an exciting new phase since re-launching last year.
Look out for the singles “Warzone” and “20 to Life” releasing in February. In the meantime, here’s the video teaser for the EP. This is the real deal, for the hip hop heads and connoisseurs – 050 Dat !

Our thanks to everyone who has supported us during this our year of re-launch
It’s been a hectic time since we relaunched in the Spring after a 15 year hiatus !
First there were the Underground Cartel and Belles in Monica EP releases taking us up to the summer, then there were wider label developments including setting up our direct online store where we re-released some of our classic vinyl from days gone by, and more recently planning a release schedule for 2020 with new signings from the USA and UK which will be announced over the next couple of months.
We appreciate the support & encouragement we’ve received from so many people around the world in this latest part of our journey, and so will wrap up this historic year with the release of a new EP on December 6th.
Krash Slaughta vs B.I.M. ” ’18 Showdown ” includes all the remixes the legendary turntablist DJ, DMC finalist and II Tone Committee member produced for the Belles in Monica crew, some of which previously appeared on vinyl and others we unearthed in our backroom vaults. Fans of this particular form of hip hop are in for a pre-Xmas feast !!
On November 19th we’ll release the single “What D’Ya Need – H.A.R.D. Remix” which will be available to stream and download from all the regular platforms and stores, and just as with the EP itself, the first time ever these classic joints will be in digital format.
We have just published a film video trailer of the EP on Youtube, as well as an audio teaser on Soundcloud.Check them out below.
If any members of the public would like more information about our releases including digital and physical availability, feel free to drop us a line via our Contact PageIf any members of the media, press or DJ’s have enquiries, please contact our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR, their details are available HERE
We’re pleased to announce the opening of our new vinyl & CD store.
Before relaunching this year we operated in the “physical era”, and while of course we now release products digitally we are still committed to making available our own preferred formats.
There is little that compares to the sound, feel and experience of owning a new piece of wax, sticking the needle on the record for the first time and hearing the crackle before the musical storm kicks in.
As a label it’s part of our DNA, and we will always endeavour to cater for what is now, encouragingly, a resurgent market.
All orders placed through this website are handled and processed directly by ourselves, and we deliver to any destination worldwide.The simple store designprovides ease of use with secure payment and communication options.
This model has also allowed us to offer significant discounts on combination purchases for our valued customers.
We have great pleasure in announcing the release today of the new “Natsukashii EP” by Belles in Monica, the third such release since our relaunch in April and the second in the crew’s “Lazarus” series.
The 10 tracks include specially re-worked and re-produced “18 Edits”of previous vinyl releases, never before available instrumentals and some exclusive brand new joints, the first from the crew in 15 years.
Journeys are taken to the dark underbelly of inner city drug squalor in “Smoke Filled Rooms”, industry machinations are exposed in “That All U Got?” while the booming production of “Skitzophentic” provides the backdrop for a tirade against generic conformity.
“Venom” attacks multimedia’s clandestine misinformation schemes while the mood is switched in “Hip Hop”, a funked up, sample laden ode to the culture. A soundtrack incorporating tight eclectic beats, turntablism and filmic themes concludes as the final credits roll with “Resistance is Futile”, a bonfire of the vanities in a metaphorical dystopia.
Available to stream and download from the following
The last couple of months have represented an intensely busy period for us with such a regular release schedule, and is the culmination of over a year’s work in bringing the label out of “cold storage”.
It also completes ‘Phase 1’ of our plans as we set our sights on the future with new roster additions which we will announce in the weeks ahead.
We thank everyone for the support we’ve received in helping us reach this point and look forward to the next chapter
