HUGE THANK YOU
To everyone that attended S.White‘s record release party at the Berkley Front November 20th.Â It was a special night for everyone at Five30 Music and a greatÂ kick off to our newly formed label.Â WeÂ appreciate everyone’s support in the making of the release and look forward to posting video from the party.Â There are also plenty of pictures from the partyÂ that will be posted soon.Â
Five30 Music‘s first release, The Last Boy Scout by S.White has been available for free download on our site for just over a week andÂ we’ve beenÂ recieving a lot of love on the project!Â A couple of blog sites including Beatbox Radioshow, Hiphoprapjazz, Musical Schizophrenia, DotGotit.com, & Skrillagorillaz have already linked the album, and we’ve been pleasantly surpirsed with the amount of downloads we’ve recieved in just over one week!Â The Last Boy Scout is a very special album to me, and we want as many people as possible to hear it.Â So far, so good.
It truly was an honor to produce the album in its entirety, and help create an honest and inspirational piece of music with such a close friend, as well as an artist I’ve respected for years.Â We will have new music coming from S.White sooner than you think.Â Believe me, it will hardly be another six year hiatus.Â
NEXT MATERIAL TO BEÂ RELEASED.Â
Up next on the docket is brand new material from Tony’s solo;Â Â Project Phoenix, and new music from Madio.Â Both of these albums have been underway for some time, but are getting kicked into overdrive over the next few weeks.Â We’re really happy with the roster of artists Five30 has, and are anxious to get more pe0ple familiar with our work.Â Look forward to new music from these artists coming first quarter of 2011, perhaps with a teaser song or two beforehand.
Thanks to the many faces, both new and old, that came out to Camp Ti to check out Abrasive Method (A.M.) night before Thanksgiving.Â It was great to catch up on old times and perform in front of a crowd that doesn’t normally make it out to shows.Â Thanks for spending the biggest bar night of the year with your boys.
We passed out plenty of Living A Nightmare, Chasing The DreamÂ albums, and The Last Boy Scout album for those who hadn’t had a chance to download it yet.Â Â Please feel free to burn, copy, and email our music to anyone interested.Â Â Our whole goal hereÂ at Five30 is to give awayÂ free, accessible, andÂ quality music to people who can relate to it.Â Â Â
Special thanks to S.White and Midcoast Most for rocking the mic, and DJ Katalist for spinning the best.Â If you’re not up on Midcoast Most, please get acquainted via their facebook page: www.facebook.com/midcoastmost They are hands down one of my favorite groups in Michigan and great people to say the least.
NEXT SHOW SATURDAY DEC.18 @ CJ Mahoneys (Rochester)
That’s right.Â Another FREE local show for the holidays!Â Check out the Five30 Music artist roster (A.M., S.White, & Madio)Â opening for B.Gozza, with his band ROAD To GOZZA @ CJ Mahoney’s in Rochester.Â This isn’t normally a spot where you get to hear live music, so it’ll be a nice change of pace considering we drink there all the time.Â B.Gozza is apart of the Flint duo the Artfull Dodgers, who have been dropping classic hip hop since 1999.Â Stepping out for a solo project, Here Comes Trouble, this isÂ Gozza‘sÂ first solo effort.Â Check him out at www.artfulldodgers.comÂ
Gozza is alsoÂ the house DJ there and can be caught spinningÂ every Friday and Saturday night.Â Â The show starts at 10pm, and is free.Â There will be plenty of drink specials, so come grab one with Five30 Music.
Looking forward to doing plenty more blogs, as well as getting the website stocked with more content.Â We’re collecting all of our material, and should have everything up soon.Â Also, look out for blogs from the entire Five30 Music crew.Â If you haven’t downloaded The Last Boy Scout yet, please do so!Â
