Upset Records wraps up the summer months with more shows, more releases, and more hype around the label than ever before! After four individual record releases, artist debuts, performances, in-store promotions and CD signings, the label presses on seeing no end in sight. Upset Records is being seen and heard all over Denver.

Upset Records threw the biggest party Denver saw all summer, Upset Records Day, where not one act of violence was reported. Four CDs were released from Doe and Ray Ray including Ray Rays debut album, Back On Da Bricks. Doe came out with On the Run Gettin Money, Big City Big Dreams, and Doe and Mac Present: Scars and Tattoos. Fans got a chance to see Yukmouth perform alongside Doe, doing their collaboration track, Denver, Kansas, California and hear DJ Rectangle who was flown in from Vegas to act as resident DJ for the evening. The party attracted over 400 people to Colorados largest nightclub. Since then the labels artists have opened for West Coast legend DJ Quik, and have been performing at local car shows and clubs all over Utah, New Mexico, California, Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado.

Buzz Magazine has been the most recent publication to expose people to Doe and the rest of the Upset Records family. The September 05 issue displays Upset Records artists Doe, Ray Ray, Collision, Von and Bam on the cover as well as spread throughout the inside pages from front to back. In addition to this press, Upset Records will be running television commercials, radio ads, billboards and print ads in some of the leading magazines representing our culture, from The Source to XXL to Lowrider to Murder Dog.

Upset artists have also been getting radio play all over the country. San Franciscos 106.1 KMEL, Sacramentos 102.5 and Colorado stations KS107.5 out of Denver and Colorado Springs 96.1 are just a few of the stations set to feature Does track Yell It Out off On the Run Gettin Money. The track is also getting played in and around the Pensacola, FL area by Edwin Stokes, a.k.a. DJ2FREAKY, where he has reported that the track is getting quite a good response in the clubs.

With such a wide fan-base, all Upset Records albums are selling out of stores as fast as they are put in. Albums are available through City Hall Records at Hastings, Sam Goody, and local music stores nationwide. This includes the previously released albums from Gloc 9, Thorobread Click and Collision. To further promote the label and its artists, Upset Records will continue performing in their hometown of Denver, CO throughout the Fall months as well as touring cities in Kansas, California (Bay Area), Missouri, Florida and Texas. A highly anticipated CD Release Party is in the works for Collisions Focused And Determined which was released on 3/22/05. The party will be held in his hometown of Kansas in the winter.
