“When we started Dawn Raid, we aimed to fill a need by creating a space to support up-coming talent and bring in the next generation. 15 years after the release of our first album, and I think that’s exactly what we’ve achieved – and what we continue to do. We’re very proud of the artists we work with and we want to celebrate that,” Brotha D said.
