Music Week have highlighted the jukebox market in their February issue as being a market “set to thrive”. The launch of a new free app, Soundjack which allows users to pick, play and pay for jukebox selections from their phone looks to drive the market forward beyond 2014.
Crosstown Rebels will release a tenth anniversary compilation on February 24th and Rhiza is very happy to be helping promote the album upfront of it’s release by uploading the 1st cd from the comp across the digital network.
The label, founded by Damian Lazarus in 2003, has risen to prominence over the past ten years with more than 100 releases. It acted as a springboard for Jamie Jones and his Hot Creations crew, and is also home to other formidable acts such as Art Department, Maceo Plex, Deniz Kurtel and Amirali.
The opening track to the 3 cd comp features Amirali’s “Beautiful World” and is a very welcome reminder of the Iranian / Canadian producer’s nu-wave wonky electronic melancholic house.
