During the week of February 19th, 2013, two of IDC’s partner labels received feature placement on the front page of iTunes, surrounded by the likes of Afrojack, The Strokes, Guided by Voices, STRFKR, Eric Clapton, Rick Ross, and even One Direction, marking a huge success for independent artists.

 

Campilation

MalLabel’s V/A release “The Campilation” is a fundraising LP featuring many talented producers from around the world that have played and supported Camp Questionmark. This project represents a new way to build and grow, with all proceeds going toward the Camp Questionmark non-profit community. This camp has grown over many years from its grassroots beginning, into a multifaceted community that works all year to raise funds for a large scale public sound area in Black Rock City. Artist donated, The Campilation is comprised of a huge selection of producers like Minnesota, Mimosa, Ill Gates, Son of Kick, Love & Light, Sugarpill, Chris B, Stylust Beats, G Jones, Mad Zach, Guttstar, Taso, Trevor Kelly, Skulltrane, Kll Smth, El Diablo 2Nutz, Carrier, Indaskyes , Carly D, Free Crush, & Dr. Knobz, that have been featured at events and festivals world wide. The Campilation flows seamlessly through provocative purple, grimy dubstep and chill downtempo, glitch hop and trap. Each track is complex and made to be heard from start to finish. Atmospheric bass laced with ambient sounds and powerful synths, resulting in music that moves you. This LP is a work of love from the Camp Questionmark community that has taken years of building from the people behind the scenes.

 

Souljahz

The first release from Royal Order Music, “Selassie Souljahz” features Sizzla Kalonji, Chronixx, Protoje, and Kabaka Pyramid. Chronixx credits his versatility and his professional stage presence to the early lessons he received from his father Chronicle, who always shared his own experiences and encouraged his son to go one step beyond with each performance. Having successfully launched his career, Chronixx is making his mark not only locally but also internationally, with regular rotation is Kenya and numerous European countries. He ended last year with a well-received performance at Studio 38, where Kingsley Cooper predicted that he would be reggae’s next superstar. He started off the year with Rebel Salute with a compelling performance.  After the launch of his debut video “Warrior”, Chronixx will continue on his journey of writing and delivering positive music and looks forward to spreading his messages on stages and airwaves around the world.

From Respect Magazine:

Hip-hop’s already got a violinist (see: Miri Ben-Ari), and now it’s got a trumpeter. Bill Ortiz plays with Carlos Santana and is a prolific musician in his own right, perhaps most famously blowing his horn on Souls of Mischief’s “’93 Til Infinity.” He released a hip-hop album last year, Highest Wish, featuring a selection of rappers, including this Casual of Hieroglyphics, who appears on “We Are What We Are.” Now, the song’s been given the visual treatment, which you can stream above.
