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 !

In May 2020, New Dawn Records brought you “Panacea” by London rapper Phoenix da Icefire & producer Husky Brown. Nominated for “Best Independent Album” at the AIM Awards 2020 due to its incredible mix of hip hop, soul, r&b, dub and electronica providing the soundtrack for one of the most creative, relevant and prescient narratives of these turbulent times. Issues relating to the environment, physical and mental health, racism, prejudice, street life, aspirations and interdependence were all addressed with a refreshing underlying theme of hope for the future.

In August 2021 the label released “Lead by Example” by renowned London rapper Ramson Badbonez, his first time behind the boards. One of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years is also very rare in nature with such a phenomenal line up of guest featured artists from the UK, US and Canada all standing shoulder to shoulder on the one record delivering a showcase of the highest calibre beats, rhymes and turntablism.

Finally after the long term impact of the Covid 19 restrictions, you have the first chance to see tracks from these fantastic albums performed live on the same night at London’s Brixton Jamm on Friday November 12th 2021 thanks to our friends at Hoochinoo, the event organizer. A night not to be missed for all hip hop connoisseurs.

We are pleased to announce the release of the new single “Lame Duck” today, the fourth taken from the album “Lead By Example” by London’s Ramson Badbonez, his debut as a producer which drops August 27th 2021.

Rarely has such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic featured together on the one LP, resulting in a showcase of the highest quality rhymes, beats and turntablism.

It’s doubly satisfying for us that on this latest joint we were able to bring artists we work with together, namely New Jersey’s Tru Trilla whose EP “The Seymour Chronicles” and album “God of Barz” we released last year. Together with fellow featured artists Fly Kwa and Prince Ak, trademark raw and uncompromising punchlines deliver knockout blows to all comers, the energy intensified by the potent bass and kicks combinations for a concoction of bars and beats that go the full distance. 

Available to stream & download at Apple, Amazon, Tidal, Spotify & Bandcamp

In additional news, we are hopeful of announcing a joint showcase event in London sometime in the autumn for the album “Panacea” by Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown we released last year and which was previously postponed due to the pandemic, and Ramson’s album “Lead by Example”.

Those in England may be aware that on the day the announcement was made confirming all restrictions had been lifted for entry to bars and clubs and the leisure industry more widely, an additional restriction was simultaneously added at the last minute meaning that from late September, evidence of a double Covid vaccination would become necessary to gain entry to clubs and venues.

While logic would determine that this has little to do with science and more to do with coercing a specific age group into receiving both vaccinations over a set period, it has of course added further uncertainty and considerations for venues and clubs up and down the country in terms of logistics, resources and feasibility.

However the situation is still developing, and we will provide further details whenever in a position to confirm.

Meantime, all media, press and radio enquiries about our releases can be directed to our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR whose details are HERE, and we thank everyone once again for all the support.

New Dawn Records are pleased to announce the release today of the new single “Lead by Example” by London producer Ramson Badbonez.

The title track from his album out on August 27th, it’s the second following last month’s “Stay True” featuring Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan.

All the more remarkable given this is Ramson’s debut release as a producer, this is a premium cut by any standard.

New single released today, the second taken from Newark rapper Tru Trilla’s “The Seymour Chronicles EP” out on March 17th.

On “20 to Life” he is joined by fellow 050 Boyz member Prince Ak as they load up the verbal barrels and take aim at wack rappers with more dresses in their locker than rhymes ! Fierce bars over the classic eastcoast sound produced by another New Jersey native Joey Loax.

The EP is the warm up to Tru’s incredible new album “God of Barz” we release in May, more news about that shortly.

Distributed by Ingrooves / Universal, the single is available to stream and download from all major platforms and stores worldwide including APPLE, AMAZON, DEEZER, & NAPSTER. Also on Spotify & Soundcloud

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 !
