NuTech Digital and Mike Jones Sign Exclusive Concert DVD Agreement

VAN NUYS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 3, 2005--NuTech Digital, Inc. (OTC BB:NTDL.OB), a worldwide leader in the production and distribution of original and licensed DVD content, today announced the execution of an exclusive production agreement with Houston, Texas rapper, Mike Jones Platinum Artist on his first Album released .The exclusive production and distribution agreement will result in Mike Jones' premier concert DVD and be ready for distribution in the beginning of the first quarter 2006. The concert DVD will be produced in Hi-Definition, utilizing state-of-the-art audio and video technology, which will best capture the artist's unique tempo, as well as his charismatic, amusing and witty lyrics. The production shoot is scheduled for October 10, 2005 at The El Rey, in Los Angeles, Ca.

The tentative name of the production release is "Ice Age, Featuring Mike Jones and El Pus". Mike and his friends, El Pus, from Atlanta, Ga, will perform some remixes from Mikes #1 selling debut album, "Who Is Mike Jones?", including some new and previously unreleased tracks. As well, the production will contain some surprise special guest appearances.

Born in Houston, Texas, Mike Jones began rapping in 1991, distributing his first album on his own record label, Ice Age Entertainment. He has marketed himself using an idea his grandmother gave him, by incorporating the phrase "Who Is Mike Jones"? into his rap lyrics, even going so far as including his personal cell phone number into the mix, 281-330-8004. Always ambitious and witty when it comes to his career, he also became known for releasing 'screwed' (slow and warped) versions of his songs along with the originals.

Having been a resounding regional phenomenon since 1991, Mike Jones now finds his success blossoming on the national scene. His April 2005 national debut release, 'Who Is Mike Jones? ' had risen to #1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop charts. The title gives the nod to his grandmother's marketing idea, and introduces his unique 'screwed' tempo in the hit single and video," 'Still Tippin'".

Commenting on the signing, NuTech Digital CEO Lee Kasper stated, "Mike Jones created and perfected an image and style that sets him apart from other performers in this genre. We're going to capture that uniqueness on DVD and we expect this project to be very successful for both Mr. Jones and NuTech. I am happy to have the performance scheduled in early October, as we will have this DVD released for the first quarter in 2006."
Kasper continued, "His fame steeply on the rise, Mike Jones is prepared to take the national rap scene by storm. We are very pleased to be involved with him."
