Japan’s “Official Urban Radio Legend” Impacts Urban Music Market Worldwide

Tokyo, Japan, October 18, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) During its 10 years at #1 in the Japanese Urban radio market, Joint One Radio on Japan’s INTERFM 76.1 has garnered the trust and respect of record labels, major recording artists and corporations seeking entrée for their products into the Asian market. Known as Japan’s “Official Urban Radio Legend”, Joint One Radio is the chosen launch vehicle for many exclusive product releases as well as the breaking ground for new music releases in Asia, by major and independent labels from across the world. Dark Shadow Magazine says, “When it comes to music of this genre, Joint One Radio and Record Pool is the pipeline to all of Japan. When you think of where the heartbeat of American music is today, thoughts of Los Angeles or New York may cross your mind. At the very least, we may think that our radio stations should be playing the most current music in the industry. Think twice because most likely, these same songs were first aired on InterFM 76.1 Tokyo.”

Led by former Los Angeles radio spin doctor, DJ Joey Slick, Joint One Radio was recently selected as the sole launch vehicle of the Michael Jackson MOBILE “For the Children” cell phone in Japan, http://mobile-mj.com. Launched on 29 August 2010, Michael Jackson’s birthday, via the Joint One web site http://www.jointone.com, orders for the exclusive product immediately proved the effectiveness and reach of the on-air show and its web presence.

Joint One, LLC, parent company of Joint One Radio and Record Pool in both the U.S. and Japan, also launched J. Stillton Productions in 2007. Music productions for artists and projects from around the world have come from the J.Stillton studio in Japan. Sega of America, inc., recruited J.Stillton to help create the soundtrack for its Nintendo Wii version of the popular game, MadWorld. The creativity of the Dj (Joey Slick), discipline of the Producer (Stilly Still), and research of the A&R (Shuzz), gives the J. Stillton team the versatility to adapt to, and create any vibe. The mission of Joint One & J. Stillton is to compose the hottest music for everyone in need of the Joint One touch. Sega’s MadWorld soundtrack includes music from Joint One’s roster of artists from America, Japan and the UK.

Joint One’s founder DJ Joey Slick, formerly a live mix show DJ on Los Angeles’ Power 106 (KPWR 105.9) and the world renowned Baka Boyz, Friday Night Flavaz mix show, was signed as the instructional DJ for Pioneer’s CDJ system. In 2001 he was recruited away from Los Angeles to create and headline the premier urban radio show in all of Japan, Joint One Radio and 2002 saw Joey inducted into the West Coast Hip Hop Hall of Fame by its founder Alonzo “The Grandmaster” Williams, of World Class Wreckin’ Cru fame.

With this type of history, it’s no surprise that Joint One stands as the “Gateway to Japan” and helps set the stage for new phases of development in urban music culture around the world. Major and independent labels along with established and upcoming artists, seek out the show and the Joint One Record pool both in the United States and Japan, as respected team mates in accomplishing their music mission and often, the Joint One Family has advance copies of new projects even before American outlets. New labels, such as Wordsmith’s Nu Revolution Entertainment, LLC/Prowax/Sony, enter into marketing deals with Joint One for the Asia market and other future stars from around the world seeking guidance and promotional bang, entrust their projects to Joint One.

Joint One Radio and Record Pool, while launching from Japan, are also getting features within premier American outlets such as http://www.unsignedhype.org and international urban lifestyle offerings, like H.A.S. Magazine, have featured one of Joint One’s diverse roster of artists.
