Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Alzie Ramsey, a DJ/songwriter, producer and entrepreneur based out of Phoenix has released the anticipated deep house single “Codex Alimentarius” exclusively on Beatport. The song will be released worldwide officially on November 12 to other premium digital stores.

“When it comes to deep house music, Al is definitely a producer that keeps the genre on the forefront,” says Erick Shipmon, Director of Marketing at Black Widow Music, LLC. “The bass line of this composition is absolutely amazing and his jazz progressions are stellar. It’s definitely a production we’re proud of and it commands respect in a genre and industry that is highly oversaturated with music that sounds the same.”

Ramsey is definitely a producer to keep an eye on in the near future as we continue to see a steady rise in the popularity of many subgenres within EDM.

Black Widow Music, LLC, CEO voices his thoughts on EDM and the upcoming 2012 presidential election.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 02, 2012

Alzie Ramsey, CEO of EDM record label Black Widow Music, recently stated his personal view on the Mitt Romney campaign and the EDM culture. Ramsey thinks that Romney is definitively out of touch with a major segment of the voting population in the upcoming 2012 election.

“Right now the EDM culture is booming and it’s booming at a critical point in America’s history,” says Ramsey. “With approximately 46 million young voters (according to yda.org) and many of these comprising the EDM movement they just cannot afford to be ignored. I’m not a political expert or analyst, but it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out the importance of these numbers. These staggering numbers can literally swing an election if they are addressed in the proper manner.”

Obama for America has recently launched a campaign entitled DJs for Obama. This campaign specifically targets the EDM community and demonstrates that we have an incumbent that is aware of the importance of the voice of the young voter. Many people are unaware, but Barack Obama even requested a DJ to spin at his inauguration in 2009.

“As the saying goes the proof is in the pudding,” states Ramsey. “I challenge anyone to go to Google, Yahoo or any other search engine and do a search for Mitt Romney and EDM – the findings are dismal. Say what you will, but Mitt Romney is definitely not in touch with the young voter and his campaign has missed a critical road in captivating their audience.”

EDM record label CEO speaks out on the recent electronic dance music gold rush.

Alzie Ramsey of EDM record label Black Widow Music, LLC has recently decided to voice his opinion on the recent gold rush occurring within the music industry. Ramsey personally believes that this is one of the first official outcries against this debauchery.

“EDM has been around and thriving since the 70s and all of a sudden there’s this enormous explosion of the genre,” states Ramsey. “What artists need to do is take a closer look at what is actually happening before it’s too late. Selling out to the corporate world and commercialism is a disgrace and the hand that is feeding you will eventually destroy you.”

Anyone who has been following this genre (even remotely) knows that events such as Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival attract fans literally by the hundreds of thousands in number. Consequently, the financial returns are millions of dollars and hungry corporations are vying to take it all. The latest trends in EDM have been Avicii playing for Madonna and Ralph Lauren, Swedish House Mafia and Absolut Vodka, Swedish House Mafia and Usher, Ne-Yo and Calvin Harris, Rihanna and Calvin Harris and the list goes on. Can Madonna, Usher, Ne-Yo or Rihanna attract millions of people on their own merit? In no way possible do they even come close and many venues they perform at barely draw a decent crowd and are half empty. So the easy fix for these artists and the corporate giants funding them would be to feed off the current boom of electronic dance music.

“As I’ve stated previously, the corporate giant is taking EDM to the ATM. Historical proof demonstrates that with a gold rush comes scams, sickness, death and murder,” says Ramsey. “The corporate world (and this includes the “major” record label) has ravaged just about every genre there is spanning from classical to rap and they’ve found another new playground to be a bully on and destroy.”

The motivating factor behind this press release is simple – nothing technical, pure honesty and perceiving the state of the genre realistically. These corporations are not interested in the well-being of electronic dance music or the musicians involved. They have two primary concerns – themselves and their wallets.

EDM label Black Widow Music, LLC adopts a new mission statement, strategic plan and sets ambitious audience objectives.

EDM record label Black Widow Music, LLC adopted a new three-year strategic plan at the September 14 meeting in Seattle, Washington.

Titled “Presence Through Innovation and Alliance,“ the Black Widow Music, LLC strategic plan targets to make the independent EDM record label one of the world’s leading music organizations by 2016, focused on mission, presence and gaining a worldwide audience. The plan calls for opening an office in Europe and formulation of new marketing strategies.

The plan also recommends:

  • expansion of social media networking
  • acquisition of additional talent
  • targeting press (regional, national, television/radio, online)

The plan focuses not only on producing outstanding music and artists but also embracing its audiences and creating an arena in which the label and audiences can interact.

In a recent analysis of EDM and current trends we happened upon the biography of Wolfgang Gartner where he states that “One of my mantras is I have a responsibility to advance the genre. If I am capable of doing something I’ve never done before, I feel like I have to use that ability, because there are not many people who do – or can,” said Erick Shipmon, Director of Marketing at Black Widow Music, LLC. “With this statement in mind we’ve adopted his mantra as part of our change in corporate structure and mission.”

To pronounce the focus, Black Widow Music, LLC adopted the following new mission statement:

“Because we have the ability we have a responsibility to advance the genres and music we represent. Why? Because there are not many organizations that do – or can.”

“This plan is a response to the rapidly changing and demanding music industry we now work with,” said Shipmon. “In order to keep and increase the span of our audiences and presence, we need to be wise and take advantage of the opportunities within the new culture presented and audience involvement.” The plan is expected to be released in December 2012.

As we all we know there are a host of blogs and websites about EDM and the many subgenres that make up EDM in its entirety. For the majority, most sites are very uninformative and thrive more so on providing information on what the latest stars such as Deadmau5, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, David Guetta and Avicii (just to name a few) are doing. Not that what these individuals are doing lack importance, but there are many other notable artists that comprise the backbone of the EDM structure.

At Black Widow Music, LLC we constantly watch current events and trends occurring within EDM. The one prevalent occurrence is the rapid oversaturation of EDM itself within the genre. Every single day someone is releasing a mix, remix, compilation or a mashup attempting to gain recognition in an already over saturated market.

Deadmau5 recently stated in an interview with Edna Gundersen of USA TODAY, “Now we have this huge pot of money coming in, creating bigger budgets and bigger crowds. They’re doing us all a favor by letting big money know we’re big money.” In a recent interview with Ben Sisario of The New York Times, Gary Richard of Hard Events stated, “I have been approached by all the big boys you can imagine. I’ve been working in this for 20 years and nobody cared. Now it’s so massive that everybody wants a piece of it.”

Can you really blame musicians for rushing where gold is to be found? History demonstrates that people have been rushing for gold for many a year as well as killing and destroying what is to be found along the path. So, what does this mean for EDM? In short, it means more saturation and a steady rise and emergence of poor quality music. But, there is an old adage that goes “the cream rises to the top.”

In our recent analysis of EDM and few notable artists we happened to stumble upon the biography of Joey Youngman, better known by his stage name Wolfgang Gartner. He stated, “One of my mantras is that I have a responsibility to advance the genre. If I am capable of doing something I’ve never done before, I feel like I have to use that ability, because there are not many people who do – or can.” Conclusively, that is exactly what we are doing here at Black Widow Music whether it’s EDM, jazz or any other genre.

Here at Black Widow Music, LLC we refuse to be focused upon the misleading statistics of social media. The amount of Twitter followers, Facebook Likes and YouTube views are irrelevant and not what drives and motivates this organization. What you can be guaranteed to discover when you visit here is a EDM (electronic dance music) record label that puts out quality music as a mandatory standard as well as leader that refuses to be commercialized in this new era of electronic music.
