A Family Affair

679 Recordings’ acclaimed Run The Road compilation, the first artist-based grime collection, finally hits stores nationwide on January 24th. To coincide with this groundbreaking release, the finishing touches have been made to the brand new website - The site contains previews of the album tracks from volume one of the compilation series, a gallery of the artists involved and exclusive ringtones and wallpaper.

For budding MCs and producers there is also the opportunity to send in your demos which will not only be posted on the site  as downloads , but also the best of which will appear on the next installment of the Run The Road compilation. This is the first of a series of opportunities Run The Road will be offering for new talent. Some of the scene's biggest producers will also be providing instrumentals which MCs can download, vocal and send in to the site, the cream of which will also appear as downloads and on Run The Road Volume II
