We are proud to announce the release today of the new single “Stay True” by London based producer Ramson Badbonez, the first to be taken from his album “Lead by Example” out on August 27th 2021.
The new joint features east coast warriors Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan, all delivering their renowned verbal artillery, savagely tearing apart a booming head nodder that pulls no punches. Rugged and raw, truly formidable business.
We are extremely proud to announce the release today of the phenomenal new album “Panacea” by London’s rapper & producer duo Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown.
A truly astounding and ground breaking piece of work which breaks from formulaic convention, Husky’s fresh and dynamic fusion of hip hop, electronica, dub, bass, r&b and soul provides the soundtrack for a narrative addressing many of today’s most pressing issues.
Triple Darkness member Phoenix has long been regarded as one of the finest lyricists to emerge from the UK, and throughout the album he sets his existential sights on the environment, mental health, knife crime, racism, well being and inner city life, all delivered with his trademark dexterous rhymes and creative wordplay.
Facing the challenges head on, the engaging commentary still retains a message of hope at its core, related through metaphorical concepts as abstract as they are grounded in reality.
A multidimensional, unique, entertaining and highly relevant album which pushes boundaries for the genre and will stand the test of time for years to come. Literally exceptional.

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.
