From Hamsterdam to MTV
What's good family. Your boy Juan Donovan from Darkroom Productions here.
I just wanted to check in with everyone and spread the groundbreaking news. What turned out as an offer to do music for MTV's hit show Rob & Big, has turned into a full blown MTV/Darkroom Productions merger which has your boys over at Darkroom now producing music for every show that MTV airs. MTV has never offered a contract of this kind to a producer or production team before. The deal not only covers hit shows like Real World and Laguna Beach, but also covers programming for Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, VH1, Spike TV, URGE, and MTV reality shows that down even exist yet. The grind never stops for your boys over at Darkroom, and thankfully, God has continued to bless us. So definitely be on the look out for hot new music from Darkroom on MTV for years and years to come.
Darkroom also has just started production on season 5 of HBO's Emmy winning drama The Wire. So definitely be on the lookout for tons of hot new music from Darkroom, some of Baltimore's most talented artists, and some of tomorrow's biggest major label stars playing all season long. Season 5 debuts September 9th.
As for Hamsterdam 2 - Stash to da Strip, the response has been bigger than we could have ever anticipated. March 7th will mark 2 months on the street and we have already surpassed 6,000 copies worldwide. If you haven't gotten your copy yet and need more convincing of the album's incredible content, don't take my word for it, look for reviews of it in next month's Ozone magazine and Scratch magazine.
I want to thank everyone for their continued love and support. 3 months into the year and Bmore is making mad noise. Congrats to the homie D.O.G. and the Invisible Set team for taking the game by storm and signing a joint venture with Universal. Also, shout to Bossman, the merger of Capitol taking over Virgin records has only enhanced his label's support, and we look forward to the release of that single real soon. We see yall fam. To all of the Bmore artists who are walking the walk and making big things happen, much love from Darkroom Productions.
