SCION A/V ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH A-TRAK INNOVATIVE DEAL ENCOMPASSES RECORDING, VIDEO, DIGITAL MEDIA AND TOUR
Hot on the heels of his smash hit “Barbra Streisand” with his side project Duck Sauce, New York-based DJ A-Trak plans to continue his winning streak this spring, crisscrossing North America with long-time collaborator Kid Sister and electro-psych beat creator The Gaslamp Killer on “Magic 8-Ball Tour” in a tour sponsored by Scion.
To help promote the tour, Scion is giving away an exclusive remix of A-Trak’s first new song in years, “Ray- Ban Vision” feat. CyHi Da Prynce, by Luckybeard from Crookers. It will also appear on a 7″ which will be given away at all dates on the tour. In addition, Scion A/V will be giving tickets away to each show on Twitter. Fans can follow @ScionAV for the call to action.
This innovative partnership marks a new era in Scion’s groundbreaking support of independent artists, which has yielded over 85 releases, 38 music videos, hundreds of free events, thousands of show sponsorships, two festivals and the Scion Music(less) Music Conference. In this groundbreaking new venture, Scion partners with artists by giving them the resources they need to make music, tour, and create videos and films, with the artist retaining all rights and income streams. In addition Scion provides powerful marketing and promotional support to help the artists reach their goals. In doing so, Scion absorbs many of the traditional roles of the record label while giving the artist complete creative control and ownership of all their materials and masters.
“Scion A/V is constantly dedicated to the enrichment of the entertainment culture. Sponsoring hard-working acts such as A-Trak will help the company to grow and prove our commitment to an ever-evolving music industry” Says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion.
