The latest from SSM (Sunset Strategic Marketing) label, these sets are a collection of the various styles and various formats of music spread across the board with a CD being released of all World Music to a Dance Music on another D. There will be a release of pure Rock n Roll Music on another CD, and then of course all HipHop music and Lounge styled music are on other CDs being released every Tuesday starting on January 22 and the last in the series is being released on February 19th. Each CD accordingly, are sets and collections of the top up and coming acts with some of the more popular songs that charted in some way in each respective format over the last few years.
Included in these sets are some unique, club and remix songs that helped occupy many of the charts at Our stage (MTV) in 2011 and in 2012. These songs have also charted and received many plays on the dance floor at clubs, on urban radio stations, college, AC and AAA radio formats and that are proven fan favorites at sites like Our stage (MTV). Tracks like the Mabrak’s "Come Sister Come," is currently 16 at Our Stage (MTV) in World Music, the dancehall music legend, Original Black Pantah (9th) and African music group, No-Limitt (18th) are currently 9th and 18th accordingly in the dubstep format at Our Stage (MTV). The World Party CD collection is in stores on January 23rd, with the Rockin Party CD being released to stores on January 29th. That CD boasts having a top ten song last month with “Vicarious” by the Federal Moguls (from DJ Q-Ball’s (Bloodhound Gang) side project) in Alternative music at (MTV’s) Our Stage (Currently # 14 in Alternative Music) along with songs by popular rock music artists like Pepper (Live Version of song), Death In Vegas, Travis Warren (Blind Melon lead vocalist after Shannon Hoon died).
In February 2013, the next three CDs will be released every Tuesday beginning on February 5th with the Lounge Party CD, the HipHop Party (Old School) CD comes out on February 12th and then the Dance Party CD hits stores on February 19th. The Lounge Party CD is filled with 13 songs (all other CDs have twelve (12) songs on each CD), including the Woodcock Group (Currently 18th in Instrumental and Top 40 in August through December in either Ambient/Chill, jazz and/or Instrumental music), and more chill acts like The crystal Method, Fatboy Slim, Tosca, Gavin Friday and more. The HipHop party CD is filled with hits by Gina Thompson (Currently 19th in and Top 40 in December at MTV’s Our stage) and more top 10 songs by Stryk, Mista (Latex), Los Marijuanos along with top 40 songs by DJ-RX, Neele Scarr, Philip Morris and more urban styled songs fill this 12 song CD compilation. The last CD in the Party Series Collection is the Dance Party CD, featuring popular club acts like Boy George, Eve Gallagher, Alayna, Freakpower and many more club and dance acts are on this twelve song CD.
Hearing these CD sets would be like listening to a world music station or a rock station, an urban dance station, and lounge and chill station and then a dance and club station on say satellite or on the internet. Each CD is filled with twelve (12) songs (except on Lounge Party; there are thirteen (13) songs on CD). That’s how the collections were set up last year. If you’re having your dance party this at your house, all you would need to do is place the CD on from beginning to end. If you’re having an urban styled theme party, the HipHop CD would be perfect to play from beginning to end. Same goes with every CD in this collection according to each respective genre and/or format.
