ArcTheFinger Records and 4 Kings Entertainment Present "Constantly ON" The Live Mix-Tape Showcase

During the Atlantis Music Conference and Festival on August 11th, 2005

(PRWEB) August 10, 2005 -- ArcTheFinger Records and 4 Kings Entertainment Bring Indie Hip-hop To The Atlantis Music Conference

Hip-hop deejaying as a science and an artform is all about mixing: a quality mix blends the hottest breaks and verses from crowd favorites, matching beats and interjecting cuts, skratches and shout-outs to keep the party live. Nonstop rocking is mandatory, theres no room for a break in the action. The mix-tape, a recorded manifestation of the DJs skills, is an integral piece of Hip-hop culture. In the mix-tape format, songs are transitioned creatively through various rudiments of turntablism, chopped up, mashed up and reconstructed to craft a fresh composition one banger of a track bleeds into the next, songs are dismantled, remixed and re-combined. Sixty, ninety, one hundred twenty minutes pass without a disruption in the flow of the music.

On Thursday August 11th at The Loft (1374 West Peachtree St, Atlanta), ArcTheFinger Records and 4 Kings Entertainment bring the mix-tape concept to a live performance as we present>>>

Atlantis, for those who might have missed the memo, is the Southeasts version of South By Southwest in Texas, the CMJ conference in New York or Nemo in Boston. For independent artists, Atlantis is a huge opportunity to build with other artists and to rub elbows with people who make things happen in the worldwide music community. Pros, cons and naysayers aside, Atlantis provides a chance for the indie artist to network with like-minded individuals on the hunt for booking, record distribution, print media exposure and radio airplay, whether college or commercial. For music fans, Atlantis is an opportunity to scope out the freshest of the new music that has yet to be heard by the majority of show-goers and record store customers
