New Dawn Records are delighted to announce the release of the fantastic new album “Dopeliss” by Brick City rapper & producer Az Izz, formerly of the legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz.

Together with Pace Won, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit, D12. More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az has returned to the hip hop fold with his first major solo album in several years.

Largely self produced with additional contributions by Qua Z Mo, DJ 3rdRell and DJ Profluent, the guest featured artists include several of his fellow former group members and further luminaries from the local independent scene including Drift, Rube the Difference and Jaja Kenyatta.

From boom bap to hard driving electronic beats, the production maps the evolution of the east coast sound underpinned lyrically by the traditional art of storytelling, street life, aspirations and struggles. Back in the game with another flag planted for the Garden State, it’s a diverse and engaging release for hip hop heads across the board.

Available to stream and download from all major digital platforms and stores including APPLE, TIDAL, AMAZON, and also here on Spotify.

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 3rd which 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 @TheRealAzIzz where 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.

Peace

To mark what has felt an incredibly quick, but also a busy and fulfilling first year back since re-launching, we got DJ Santoi to put together a special “Re:Generation” mix of singles and tracks we have released in the past 12 months

Included in the set are Underground Cartel, Tru Trilla, Belles in Monica, Az Izz, Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown and Krash Slaughta, artists from the USA, UK and Europe. Cool blend of hip hop beats, dope rhymes and turntablism….a little somethin’ to beat the lockdown blues.

The full track versions can be heard on the corresponding Spotify Playlist we set up here, but meantime give it a spin on Mixcloud…enjoy!

Stay the course and stay safe people

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.

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 single is 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
