King Youngblood’s debut album, Big Thank, will be the first released under new partnership
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Beatroot, a leading independent music distributor and part of the Made in Memphis Entertainment (MIME) family of companies, has signed a worldwide distribution deal with Seattle-based music label DICE LAB (Dreaming In Color Entertainment), which aims to thrust the best of the Pacific Northwest’s emerging talent into the national music scene by focusing on people and projects that embrace intersectionality, social justice, and exquisite sound and visuals across all platforms and demographics. The first releases under the deal will be four singles, including the just-released “Thousand Songs,” as well as an album titled Big Thank by DICE LAB artist King Youngblood. The full album, slated for a May 13th release, will include 12 tracks and an unplugged bonus track.
The deal marks Beatroot’s first foray into the Pacific Northwest, known for its ever-blooming music scene ranging from jazz, to hip-hop, to grunge, to indie-pop. In addition to King Youngblood, the DICE LAB roster includes notable artists in rock (pop, alt, indie), hip-hop and R&B, and singer-songwriter and Americana, including TeZaTalks, Jaiden Grayson, Nathan Nzanga, Matondo, Lara Lavi, CarLarans, Tae Phoenix, and Renee Holiday.
King Youngblood’s sound incorporates a unique blend of alt-rock, indie-rock, and pop-rock ballads with both hook-laden, anthemic arena-rock choruses and lyrics that overflow with intersectionality and messages of social justice. The band was founded by lead vocalist and guitar player Cameron Lavi-Jones, a 22-year-old award-winning artist, producer, sound engineer, songwriter, graphic designer, multi-instrumentalist, filmmaker, and executive director of his own non-profit project – Hold Your Crown. Other band members include bassist and backing vocalist Hamoon Milanania, cellist and backing vocalist Chet Petersen, and drummer Alix Daniel.
“This new deal represents our new commitment to diversifying our clientele and catalog at Beatroot,” said Steve Corn, Director of Operations for Beatroot. “As we started to strategize our new deals with indie labels, Seattle was an obvious choice with its rich and deep musical history developing and originating some of the best artists in their genres. We are excited to bring more of these incredible artists to the forefront and spread their important message around the world.”
“DICE LAB was created to address the lack of infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest for musical artists from diverse genres. As a working artist for over 30 plus years who has been signed to both major and indie labels, I wanted to create a co-op approach to label services where the artists are hands on with the core team at DICE LAB, they own their intellectual property, they work together to build their repertoire, critique each other, package shows together, pool resources to get better deals on merchandise programs, and reflect the amazing musical artistry that has always been here in the Puget Sound,” said Lara Lavi, Esq., founder and Managing Partner of Dreaming In Color Entertainment Label Group. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Beatroot to tap all that we have built with these stellar artists and thrilled that Beatroot sees our potential for an artist-friendly model that makes great business sense for everyone.”
