August 15 2011: Jeye T Telescopic Eye EP release

August 22 2011: Black Einstein Common Ground single release

Black Einstein (AKA Colin Emmanuel) is an old dog of hip hop and a lover of the art of 'lyrical flow'. B.E.'s approach to music harks back to the time of the Native Tongues, Mark the 45 King, Queen Latifah, The Jungle Brothers, etc etc… all making music that would define an era that would then spawn so many variations.  In short,  B.E.'s approach is fresh, punchy and imaginative and he can be considered a leader, not a follower, in hip hop.

Talking of the label and its emerging roster of talent, Powell said:
“It has been a leap of faith for me to step into the arena as a label boss. When I set up 25 Hour Convenience it was in the hope that I could make as much of a change as one person can with respect to the artist getting the platform they deserve. I’ve been inspired by the number of incredibly talented artists I see that find it hard to get heard. The label’s ethos leans itself to not only championing the artist, but assisting in their overall development. I can’t wait to see the reaction that these 3 artists get when their releases drop.”
