Straight Up Sound on MySpaceMusic
As we continue our exploration of modern music marketing for my clients and friends, here's how Straight Up Sound on MySpaceMusic, DJ Weedim, and Selecta Bus'High present themselves to fans.
Before forming Straight Up Sound, Dj Weedim and Selecta Bus’High asserted themselves separately on the Hip-Hop and Reggae business. This is their complementarity and their feeling for the musical intermarriage that make them merge in 2000.
Since, they do not stop combining tones US and jamaican, creating quantity of remixes and exclusives tunes. In order to materialize this style being born and to stick to the most near to the musical current event of these two currents, they created in 2005 the Reggae Crunk Movement, point of start of many projects and collaborations (Coolie Buddz, Rasheeda, Shawty Lo etc..)
Their major trumps?
A pointed selection, definitively different of that one is used to listen, and mixs (in live or in mixtape) of a technical quality and creative recognized. They are co-authors of 9 mixtapes Reggae-Crunk exclusives, of 3 street albums, and of a big number of mixes downloadable on Internet.
In parallel, Weedim (who’s the French representative of Oomp Camp) creates the Good Dope Mixtapes, today to the number of 6, realized in partnership with rappers principally from the dirty south and Bus’high the Stone Effect with Jamaican artists.
Since 2007, Weedim works with Joey Starr (the most popular rapper in France) as Beatmaker and Dj.
They participate to different styles of events like pure clubbin Partyz (@ VIP Room with Lil Jon, Bus Palladium with The Beatnuts,Madam, Bains Douches, Nouveau Casino, Triptyque, Divan du Monde, Gibus, La Galerie, Batofar, Espace Nikaia), and to some concerts wid Buju Banton, Anthony B,Junior Kelly, 5TH Element crew, IsraÕl Vibration, Black Uhuru, Jah Mason, Gladiators, Alpha Blondy, Max Romeo, and Big Youth.
