Alot has happened since my last update so I'll try not to bore you with too many details...
I've landed a new publishing/licensing partnership with Premiere Tracks. In addition to using my hiphop and electronic songs, singer/songwriter Steve Ryan and I are writing exclusive songs just for their company. It's an exciting project that we're both stoked about.
I'm working on the last couple of tracks which will hopefully be done before long. I'm expecting a release around March '14. Right now, Get Your Money Right is currently in rotation on radio around the country, the song was picked up by OCR Radio Network. The song will also be featured on Dope Fiction with an extended mix and additional verse. A 2nd single will be released in January. College radio interested in picking up the track, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
--new site coming--
To celebrate the new year and new beginnings I will be working on a new and improved digdugdisaster.com. If there's anything you'd like to see or read more about, email me and I'll take your suggestions into consideration.
I'll be getting my first UK interview soon. I will keep everyone posted. Cheerio.
