Normally I'm not a "cut and paste" type of person, but I figured this press release said it best. And YES, I'm excited about this deal!!!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WALLSHAKER Signs Deal with CRATESAVERS MUZIK
Legendary Detroit House producer and Wallshaker Music CEO Aaron-Carl signed a 2 to 3-year contract with Cratesavers Muzik on April 4, 2007. Founded by Scan 7’s Trackmasta Lou and Direct Beat music pioneer Posatronix, Cratesavers will oversee the manufacturing and worldwide distribution of Wallshaker’s music catalogue.
“This alliance not only makes our records more accessible throughout the world, but also showcases the great strength we have (as Detroit artists and producers) when we pool our resources together” says Carl.
Wallshaker was founded in 1998, with the underground club hit, “Closer.” Wallshaker’s third release, Aaron-Carl’s “My House” got licensed by Ovum Recordings and earned a spot on Billboard’s Top 40 Dance/Club Play Chart. After a brief hiatus, Wallshaker re-opened its doors in 2003, releasing a steady stream of Deep House and Tech-House anthems. Other artists on the label include Detroit DJs E. Dubb and Benjamin Hayes, soul singer extraordinaire Veronique, and Inbetween DJs from the UK.
Cratesavers started initially in 1999, and spawned a record label in 2005. Specializing in Classic Detroit Techno, their label is open to all genres of electronic music. Cratesavers’ roster includes Techno legends Scan 7, Detroit’s own DJ Surgeon and the Detroit Techno Militia.
Wallshaker Music will also be digitally distributed through EPM Online, Beatport.com, Juno.co.uk, Wallshaker.com and Cratesavers.com.
