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.

New Dawn Records are very pleased to announce that we will be releasing the new album “Dopeliss” by rapper and producer Az Izz from the legendary New Jersey crew The Outsidaz on July 3rd 2020.

The group were particularly well known for collaborative work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new upcoming crew from Detroit, D12, a fact acknowledged by Eminem several times throughout his “Slim Shady” LP.

Members including Rah Digga and Pace Won went on to pursue solo careers, while Az Izz formed his own development imprint for young artists and producing soundtracks for various tv, film and sports networks. He returned to the hip hop fold 2012 with the release of his solo album “Born in Sin, Shaped in Iniquity” followed in 2018 by “Sir Aubrey King”, and most recently appeared on Shade 45 last year as a guest of DJ Eclipse.

Largely self produced with additional contributions by Qua Z Mo, 3rdRell and DJ Profluent, “Dopeliss” represents the evolving sound of the east coast, mixing the traditional with the contemporary knitted together like the fabric of hip hop itself. Featured artists include fellow Outsidaz D.U. and Pace Won with New Jersey further represented by Drift, Rube the Difference, Jaja Kenyatta and more.

As a label we are always delighted to be working with artists of the highest caliber, and in this case with a history not dissimilar to our own. There is a further coincidence given our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR have previously worked with Rah Digga and D12.

Singles “Gettin’ It”, “Nunya” and “Ghetto” b/w “Crazy” will be released over April, May and June. We have just published the audio teaser and video trailer for the album on Soundcloud and Youtube
