Just to round off the old year, we put together a special mix with some of the singles we’ve released from 2002 to 2022 by artists from the US & UK, all reppin’ the origins of dope rhymes, bangin’ beats & sick turntablism.

All of our singles, EP and album releases are now available from our official BANDCAMP PAGE and of course you’ll also find them streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal and many other digital platforms. For direct links to each release and digital store, visit our RELEASES PAGE where they are separated per artist.

We also have some very limited stock of vinyl and CD’s available of our original catalogue from back in the day. These are now rare collectors’ items, a couple of which are included in this new mix, and details can be viewed on our Physical Releases page.

A video of the new mix has just been uploaded to our official Youtube channel

The audio only stream is on Soundcloud

New Dawn Records are delighted to announce the release today of the incredible new album “Lead by Example” by London’s Ramson Badbonez

As a rapper, Ramson has been long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, and the new album marks an additional chapter in his career with this being his first time behind the boards in what is one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years.

Coincidentally, it is almost exactly one year ago to the day when the first conversation took place which cultivated an idea and defined the concept for what would become one of the most unique albums of its kind, based originally on a selection of ready made beats.

Rarely if ever has such a high quality line up of hip hop artists from the US, UK and Canada featured together on the one record, all specifically hand picked to suit beats mixing original funk, soul, rare groove, jazz and traditional boom bap. The result is an eclectic soundtrack which fuses the classic and modern eras, with Ramson himself dropping some additional jewels on selected tracks and a helping of turntablism thrown in for good measure.

Available now to stream and download from all digital stores & platforms worldwide, including APPLE MUSIC, TIDAL MUSIC, AMAZON MUSIC, BANDCAMP & SPOTIFY

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the artists involved for their co-operation in assisting us along this journey, to Mark Fear who also features on the record for his mixing and mastering services over the 2020 festive period, to our in house promotional and production team UrbanElite for the logistical assistance in making this possible and to the media and public who have supported the release to date with the affiliated singles. It’s very much appreciated.

One of the motivations on embarking upon this project was to give hip hop fans something a little exceptional and distinctive in light of the past 18 months everyone has had to endure with the Covid pandemic. We hope you enjoy what we feel sure will stand the test of time for years to come. This is how we used to do it back in the day, and the reason we came back.

Peace

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.

The new joint featuring Ghana’s finest Recognize Ali and Brooklyn’s acclaimed lyrical marksmen Skyzoo and Juxx Diamondz with cuts by the UK’s Jazz T has enjoyed phenomenal radio support in the UK, Europe and US for the past couple of weeks, and is another early representation of the highest quality hip hop present throughout the album. All the more remarkable given this is Ramson’s debut release as a producer, this is a premium cut by any standard.

Available to stream and download from all major online stores and platforms including APPLE, TIDAL, AMAZON, BANDCAMP & SPOTIFY
