For Immediate Release –
Launching soon is a website with a unique perspective that will serve as a pivotal point in the future of urban music production and artist development. We Build Hits (www.webuildhits.com) have been created with one simple premise in mind: to uphold the promise of every established artist/producer/music industry exec who has ever uttered the words “I’m Gonna Put You On.”
WeBuildHits.com is here to prove that there are those out there willing to use their connections and years of experience in the music business to bring forth the future stars of Urban Music on a global scale.
Iconic producers such as Pete Rock, The Heatmakers, D/R Period, Jake One, Jazzymoto Cookin soul, M-phazes, Tommy Tee, Doc-ish, Buckwild and more have come together to provide the same level of production that helped them launch the careers of today’s Urban Music super-stars to members of the We Build Hits community.
Members can download these sonic canvases and record their contributions – whether it’s a verse, hook or full-length songs – to demo their talents for said producers as well as the global community as a whole.
Every two weeks, selected producers will enter the studio and build a hit during a live web-cast, selecting, for example, a hook from an artist in Germany, a verse from an artist in the US and another verse from an artist in New Zealand. Incorporating all dialects, age groups, race and gender.
Rsonist ½ of the Heatmakers speaks on his involvement with the website. “What us as producers believe we can bring with this site is hot music. We all came together on this as we feel that is what the game is missing. Instead of hearing the types of dudes that’s on the radio, you can now hear from dudes all over the world. This is going to be the platform for the dudes that had a hard time getting on and now they can get some exposure.”
D.R. Period known for his classic material producing for hip-hop group M.O.P. adds his input as well “We all just came to a point where we felt like one person did everybody’s music. I felt like instead of complaining about the situation we need to do something about it. I spoke with Billy Danze(M.O.P) and we came with this idea for Webuildhits.com. I’m with this situation 110% for this movement.”
Once the record is complete, the WeBuildHits.com staff – consisting of mix-show and college radio promoters, new media marketing professionals, and other industry execs – will service the finished product to radio, mix-tape, mix-show, club and satellite radio DJs the world over gathering important feedback from key taste makers and viral marketing through social media.
Additionally, every three months, one lucky member of the WeBuildHits.com community will be given the chance to be featured on an upcoming project by an established artist via a song crafted by one of our producers.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for WeBuildHits.com, which will provide fresh talent priceless opportunities for success in the competitive Urban music industry.
