Anthony will be performing the entire album with a live band while Frost provides a DJ set. The duo’s special guests on the night are Mr McBean and Brooklyn rapper Justo the MC who will be showcasing tracks from the new album “Urban Testimony” we also released recently on November 3rd.

We are very proud to announce the release today of the fantastic new album “Cautionary Tales” by award winning New York State rapper Anthony Kannon and producer Frost Gamble, originally of Binghamton NY and now resident in Winnipeg, Canada.

We first heard the album around a year ago, and after much prepatory work and a summer of several single releases, it’s our great pleasure to finally provide the opportunity for you to hear it in full for the first time.

Authentically powerful, the young Ithacan lyricist draws on what has been quite a backstory filled with real life battles and challenging circumstances to convey a wide range of subject matter represented throughout the aptly titled release.

Having survived the trauma of being shot by armed intruders to the family home, it is a remarkable journey encapsulated in a series of biographical depictions, all with an underlying theme of survival, escape, progression and transformation.

This is Storyville of a life less ordinary deserving to be heard, handled with impressive maturity through a narrative packed full of dope rhymes and skillful wordplay. All set to the highest caliber soundtrack provided by Frost, himself a Juno Awards nominee for his production on Fresh IE’s “Ill Street Blues” in 2020.


There is also a full video playlist for every track playing on our Youtube channel

There will be two opportunties to see the album showcased live at the special launch events.

First up is next week on Thursday October 26th at The Osborne Taphouse in Winnipeg, then next month on Saturday November 18th at Deep Dive in Ithaca when Anthony will be performing with a live band and will also be joined by special guest, Brooklyn’s Justo the MC who features on the album alongside Frost’s long time sparring partner Tone Chop.

Tickets for both are available to buy in advance on Eventbrite, and of course entry on the nights at the door.

New Dawn Records are pleased to announce the release of the new single “Sunday” today by Brooklyn rapper Justo the MC and Edinburgh producer Brelstaff.

This is the third in a trilogy of singles ahead of their album “Urban Testimony” releasing on Friday November 3rd, and mapped the key points of the storyline contained within the entire theme which documents Justo’s curtailed and traumatic time spent studying at Clark Atlanta University some years ago.

The latest single represents his reflections on surviving the experience, regrets, but also a sense of optimism for the future with lessons learned, mirrored by Brelstaff’s soulful cool groove production.

Justo will be performing several tracks from the album when he appears as a special guest of Anthony Kannon and Frost Gamble at their “Cautionary Tales” album launch event taking place on Saturday November 18th at Deep Dive in Ithaca.

“Sunday” is available to stream and download at Apple / iTunes, Tidal, Amazon and below on Bandcamp and Spotify

The official video is also playing on our Youtube channel

In May 2020 we brought you “Panacea” by London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown, 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 album “Lead by Example” which we released recently in August. 

Tickets and details for the show are available directly at www.gigs.hiphop

This new AA side single by the duo has been made available 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.

You can download and stream the release at all major digital platforms including APPLE, TIDAL, AMAZON, Bandcamp & Spotify

There is also a “concept” video playing on our Youtube channel

This is our last official release of 2021 and we thank everyone, whether in media or the general public for your ongoing support, it’s very much appreciated. We are working currently on new projects targeted for release in 2022 which we look forward to announcing in the near future.

Meantime, if you are in the area, try to get down to the show at Brixton Jamm next week, it’s sure to be a night of top quality hip hop. Enjoy !
