New releases for 2022 are in the works, currently at the recording stage with some serious heat being cooked up in the kitchen !!
Meantime, we know the past couple of years has been difficult for everyone, so we’d like to thank you all for the continued support, and wish you & yours a healthy and prosperous new year when it comes.
New Dawn Records are proud to announce the release of the explosive new album “Lead by Example” by Ramson Badbonez on August 27th 2021.
Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, the prolific rapper swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time in one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years. Unique in its nature, heavyweights from the USA, Canada and the UK share equal billing in a stellar line up of guest featured artists delivering a showcase of the highest calibre lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.
Beats influenced by original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are woven into a soundtrack which fuse the classic and modern eras laced with additional scratch sorcery courtesy of truntablists Kompoze, DJ Jazz T and DJ Miracle, each track precision cut as a backdrop for the gamut of verbal artistry to unleash their full artillery.
Rarely, if ever, has such an array of trans-Atlantic talent appeared together on the one record. Coast to coast, Reks, Skyzoo, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz and Justo the MC are just some of those standing shoulder to shoulder with British luminaries Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere and many more.
Benchmark standards are set high in Ramson’s new career progression while still allowing occasional room for his own continued lyrical prowess. Many months in the making in association with our in house executive production and promotional division UrbanElite, this is an essential hip hop collector’s item with few comparisons, a landmark release.

It’s been a long and difficult year for many around the world in the wake of the global Covid 19 pandemic, but now as we begin to all emerge out of this nightmare together we hope this special album helps add to the soundtrack accompanying your journey towards better days.
New Dawn Records are very pleased to announce the release of the new AA side single “Ghetto” b/w “Crazy” by Brick City rapper and producer Az Izz, formerly of the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz.
Following “Gettin’ It” and “Nunya” released in April and May respectively, this is the third to be taken from the new album “Dopeliss” out on July 3rdwhich fuses the sound of hip hop through the eras.
From the classic hard edged soul infused sound of the east coast as represented here in “Ghetto” to the high octane electronica of “Nunya” and contemporary flavours of joints such as “Crazy” and “Gunz n Dice Games”, it’s a skillful blend marking the journey which both the genre and Az has travelled over the past couple of decades.
Both tracks on the new single are self produced while fellow group member D.U. joins the ride as featured artist on “Crazy”. Available to download and stream from all major platforms and digital stores including Apple / iTunes, Amazon and Tidal. Also on Spotify and Soundcloud
Connect with Az Izz on Instagram @RealAzIzz and Twitter @TheRealAzIzzwhere he has just announced some news about the upcoming album launch party next month
All media and press enquiries about Az Izz and the new album “Dopeliss” can be directed to our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR. Their contact details are available HERE
We again thank the media and public for the continued support during what has been an extraordinary and difficult year for everyone, and also offer our condolences and own support to the friends and family of George Floyd and indeed all who have suffered and continue to suffer at the hands of racial prejudice and brutality worldwide. Changes must and will come, starting at the top. The vote is the means to their demise.
New Dawn Records are very proud to present the explosive new album by Brick City rapper Tru Trilla, available on all major streaming platforms and digital stores today.
Together with his “Seymour Chronicles EP” we released in March, both products were over a year in the making, but the wait has been definitely worth it.
Just as with the Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown album “Panacea” we released earlier this month, it is music of this caliber that played a major role in our decision to re-launch the label last year, and in Tru’s case not only does he plant a flag for the Garden State but also for the classic sound of eastcoast hip hop.
Unsurprisingly, his singles “Word of God”, “God’s Sympathy” and “God’s Mercy” enjoyed a fantastic reception by onlines and radio DJ’s worldwide, appreciative of the quality of lyricism and production on offer, a throwback to the days when hip hop really did bring the noise and had something to say.
On the album, Newark natives Middy Murdock, Fly Kwa, Confucious and fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak intensify the energy with their own gritty rhymes.The production brings extra layers and dynamics courtesy of Chicago’s DNA Beatz, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square, the UK’s Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve), originally of New Jersey and now resident in Los Angeles.
This one really is for the heads, the hip hop connoisseurs. It’s not designed to be faux stylistic background music, it’s there to give your neck muscles one helluva workout and consume your soul. This is the real deal, set the dial to full volume and enjoy the ride.
You can connect with Tru Trilla on Twitter @Egofree2_050 and Instagram @Trilla050All media, press and DJ enquiries about the release can be sent to our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR, their contact details are available HERE

New Dawn Records are proud to present the new single “Nunya” by Brick City rapper and producer Az Izz of the renowned New Jersey group The Outsidaz.
Following on from last month’s “Gettin’ It”, this new electro banger produced by Qua Z Mo has Az on the front foot from the outset. Packing the verbal artillery, targets are placed in the sights and gauntlets thrown down through a series of combative rhymes and punchline bars.
The second single to be taken from the album “Dopeliss” out on July 3rd, and available to stream and download from all major online platforms and digital stores including APPLE, TIDAL, & AMAZON. Also on Spotify and Soundcloud

We are very proud to present the exceptional new single “The Humans are Coming” b/w “Travelling Buddy” by London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown
Released today, this is just the latest example of why we relaunched the label, providing the opportunity for highly creative and gifted artists to be heard.
Husky’s fresh perspective on production merging hip hop, electronica, dub and bass is the musical backdrop for Phoenix to address some of today’s most relevant issues with the highest caliber lyricism. In “The Humans are Coming” he skillfully tackles climate change and wider environmental concerns, while “Travelling Buddy” is a poignant offer of support, empathy and hope to all those experiencing mental health difficulties.A remix is also provided courtesy of renowned UK producer Chemo aka Telemachus
Delighted to announce the release today of the new single “God’s Sympathy” by New Jersey rapper Tru Trilla, the second taken from his album “God of Barz” which we release on May 29th
Following on from “Word of God” which unsurprisingly enjoyed much radio airplay and online media coverage, the new singleis another banger, in line with the entire album
Chicago producer DNA Beatz has laced the joint with a bass heavy electro beat which reaches inside and pulls out the soul, with all three Brick City verbal assassins taking it in turns to unleash ferocious lyrical firepower in an unrelenting salvo aimed at all contenders, laying down gauntlets all over the battlefield.
This is the real deal , set the dial high and prepare for the onslaught at APPLE, AMAZON, TIDAL, NAPSTER, DEEZER and also on Spotify & Soundcloud
Next week we will have new singles by Az Izz from the legendary New Jersey Crew The Outsidaz, and London’s rapper / producer duo Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown. All media inquiries about our releases can be directed to our in house promotional division UrbanElite PR whose contact details are HERE
NDR would like to take this opportunity to thank all media, DJs, the public and the artists themselves for the continuing support despite us all living through difficult times. There is light at the end of the tunnel and it grows a little brighter as each day passes. Stay strong.
A busy March concludes for us with the release of the new single “Word of God” by New Jersey rapper Tru Trilla, produced by Chicago’s DNA Beatz.
This is the first to be taken from the album “God of Barz” out on May 29th which of course follows hot on the heels of Tru’s “The Seymour Chronicles EP” which we released only a couple of weeks ago on March 17th.
The album also includes production by Clinton Place aka Jamal Nueve, a New Jersey native now resident in Los Angeles, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square and the UK’s Chat One. Fellow 050 Boyz group member Prince Ak is included in the Brick City contingent of featured artists alongside Middy Murdock, Fly Kwa and Confucious.
In line with the album, the new single is raw and uncompromising, packed with intense energy as Tru aims the gloves at state sponsored oppression and delivers multiple knock out blows
