We want to pass along some very exciting news about a true house music legend, Byron Burke, who has several interesting projects about to drop in a matter days. First, he has his From The Mind of Byron Burke EP release coming later this month. Burke is also launching his House Music Channel Blog (HMC), which is sure to generate a huge buzz. One more thing: We can’t forget the House Music Channel web site at housemusicchannel.net.
In a recent phone conversation I was floored by his command of modern technology as it relates to marketing, product ownership and global distribution. Burke knows the business inside-out, and been involved in a lot of major deals.
On May 22, 2009, his From The Mind of Byron Burke CD will go on sale at Amazon.com Featuring Kim English, Kevin Randolph, Laura Alford & DJ Tattoo. “House & Jazz music” are words used to describe the project, which we look forward to showcasing here at DMAclub.com.
Congrats, Byron! You’ll definitely want to check out and support his new House Music Channel Blog (HMC).
Be on the lookout for more info on his projects. Here is a snapshot of the phenomenal things he has already accomplished (lifted directly from his blog). –J. Medley
