Ludacris Releases Wemix New Online Enterprise
Posted on March 21, 2008 by Jamie Slaughter
Ludacris is attempting to uncover some hidden musical talent with the release of a new website, aimed exclusively at unsigned artists across a spectrum of genres. His Disturbing Tha Peace Entertainment label has united with MegaMobile TV, a renowned multimedia company to establish WeMix.com. WeMix will include a community for musicians, which aims to unearth talent from rappers, to songwriters, to producers.
The website will include unique online features, allowing users to make their own music, share their music and collaborate with other artists, including Luda himself. WeMix launches next month, as the site currently is in preview only mode, yet has still managed to pull in over 20,000 artists.
"There's so much talent that never sees the light of day because of the traditional way we discover artists; I felt it was time to take music back where it belongs - in the streets and with the people," Ludacris commented in a statement.
"It doesn't matter what type of music you're into, at WeMix.com it's an open playing field," he continued. "We want to hear everything that's out there and let the people guide us in deciding which new artists get their shot to collaborate with stars and record a song. Even if you can't sing or play an instrument, WeMix.com gives you the chance to make music and influence decisions through voting and reviews. It truly is the people's record company."
Artists can choose to sell their music to consumers, and allowing for a connection between the fan and the artist(s). Some other avenues which are being considered include merchandising and an online reality TV show. If you're keen to view the project, log onto WeMix.com and check it out for yourself, with the full working version set to be unveiled in late April.
