I- Play Launches Hip Hop All Star for iphone & iPod touch!!!!


I-play Launches Hip Hop All Star for iPhone™ and iPod® Touch Featuring New Exclusive Tracks From Every Generation of Hip Hop

Multiplayer DJ Battles, Breakthrough Real-Time Scratching Technology and an Integrated Facebook Connect Feature Usher In I-play’s First Micro-transaction Enabled Music Game, Now Available in the Apple® App Store

NEW YORK & LONDON—September XX, 2009—I-play, Oberon Media’s publishing division and the world’s leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today launched Hip Hop All Star for iPhone™ and iPod® touch.  Featuring an original playlist with some of the biggest names in hip hop including Busta Rhymes and Kid Cudi, Hip Hop All Star introduces an all-new way for fans and hip hop enthusiasts to experience their favorite tracks.  Turning the iPhone into virtual turntables, players use the touch screen to scratch and spin their way to DJ stardom.  Hip Hop All Star brings the swagger back to music games with a playlist starring hip hop chart-toppers alongside old-school hip hop classics, some of them exclusive to the game. 

Hip Hop All Star puts players behind the wheels of steel and on center stage as they rock the crowds in five different party locations—starting at a house party and spinning their way to a fan-packed arena. When the crowds crave more, players can turn their show into a showdown with WiFi and BlueTooth DJ battle modes.  Aspiring DJs go head-to-head to earn power-ups, show off scratch tricks and unlock in-game accessories.  When a winner emerges, players can earn DJ bragging rights by posting top scores and trash talk directly to Facebook with the integrated Facebook Connect feature. 

Hip Hop All Star is I-play’s first micro-transaction enabled music game.  Players will be able to make in-game purchases on their favorite Hip Hop All Star songs through a direct link to the iTunes® Store.   In addition, once the 10 included songs have been mastered on the turntables, players can keep the party going by purchasing the Hip Hop All Star Track Pack that includes two additional songs for $0.99.  The music never has to stop, as I-play will keep the needle on the record with the release of additional Track Packs.

“If you are a hip hop music fan, this game is for you,” said Don Ryan, chief operating officer of Oberon Media.  “As the first and only all hip hop DJ game, we wanted to make sure players are continuously engaged with the music and that the game was true to real DJing techniques and principles. The micro-transactions keep the game fresh by offering players an entirely new experience with each purchase.”

The Hip Hop All Star set list features tracks from Busta Rhymes, DJ Green Lantern, Slim Thug, Unk, Mya and Ray J, with exclusive music from Kid Cudi, DJ KO, Greg Nice, DJ Jason Nevins, Scarchild, Eddie Jaymez, and DJ Serafin.  Kool G Rap, one of the most influential and skilled MCs of all time, joins them with an exclusive track. 

“It’s mind blowing to see how hip hop has evolved from the beginning,” said Kool G Rap.  “When I began in this business, I never could have imagined turntables like this.  But it goes to show that great minds will continue to revolutionize hip hop and the DJ experience—that’s why hip hop will be around forever.”  

Hip Hop All Star is now available through select mobile carriers, and the iPhone version is available in the Apple® App Store for a special, two-week price of $2.99.  APP STORE LINK

Talent Show 3 & Tweet Up/DJ/Music Conference/TJ’s DJ’s Beat Battle 6

TJ’S DJ’S CELEBRATES 15 YEARS OF INDUSTRY EXCELLENCE WITH STARS AND TASTEMAKERS

Amazingly enough on October 21-23, 2009 TJ’s DJ’s Inc. will be celebrating its 15 year anniversary in Tallahassee, Florida during Florida A&M University’s homecoming with various events and celebrity attendees. It's been a long and crazy run, so it only makes sense to celebrate that way too!
The celebration will begin with the Tastemakers Got Talent Show 3 & Tweet Up on Wednesday, October 21. The following day on Thursday, October 22, TJ’s DJ’s presents the Tastemakers Only DJ/Music Conference at The Moon nightclub (1105 E. Lafayette St.). Within this event will be the TJ’s DJ’s Beat Battle 6 for new and eager producers to test their skills along with a section for models to be discovered rounded out with panels filled with industry experts to teach the music industry to those willing to learn. In addition, there will be an opportunity for new artists to have their music heard and critiqued live on stage during the Frequency Feedback section. Plus of course, new and established stars will grace the Showcase stage and after party set to keep the Tastemakers entertained all evening.
Friday, October 23 marks the day for TJ’s DJ’s to accept its role within the community by configuring the Peace In The Streets Celebrity Kickball Game to combat violence in the streets.
In case you were unaware, TJ’s DJ’s was established in 1994 as an outlet for DJs in the North Florida region to receive music directly from record labels in exchange for feedback. Since its inception, TJ’s DJ’s has grown to break and have its fingerprints on numerous of today’s music stars and influenced thousands of behind-the-scenes leaders called Tastemakers through its website www.tjsdjs.com, its quarterly Tastemakers DJ/Music Conferences, its annual TJ’s DJ’s/OZONE Awards Weekend, and ability to find diamonds in the rough and tell the music world about them. A few of TJ’s DJ’s successes included T-Pain, B.o.B, David Banner, Rick Ross, Plies, Pretty Ricky, DJ Smurf (Mr. Collipark), Lil Jon, Khia, and many many more!
What is the secret to TJ’s DJ’s longevity and success? “It’s all about relationships,” according to TJ’s DJ’s CEO TJ Chapman.

G20 Pittsburgh Summit




When the White House announced in May that Pittsburgh would be the site of the next G-20 Summit, reporters asked, "Why Pittsburgh?"

The reason, according to the White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, was that Pittsburgh today serves as a model for economic and environmental transformation in the United States and abroad. The city has reinvented itself by building a balanced, innovation-driven economy based on its strengths in advanced manufacturing, financial services, information and communications technologies, health care and life sciences, education and research, and energy and environmental solutions.

President Barack Obama visited Pittsburgh in 2008 during his presidential campaign and noted: "This American city has found new opportunity... Now, we must connect that local innovation and ingenuity to a national strategy."
Pittsburgh has a long history of renewing, reclaiming and redeveloping its environment while demonstrating a commitment to employing "green" technology to further economic recovery and development. Illustrating that is the fact that the G-20 Pittsburgh Summit will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the world's first and largest green convention center. The facility is proud to have earned LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for leadership in energy and environmental design.

Downtown Pittsburgh's Cultural District sets the perfect stage for this international summit on economic recovery as it stands as a unique international model of urban revitalization. The Cultural District, once a blighted part of downtown, has spurred the development of downtown, the North Shore, and the riverfronts.

As President Barack Obama responded when asked what surprised him as he campaigned for the presidency: "I've been struck by how many beautiful places there are in the country that you don't necessarily think of as beautiful. Pittsburgh, for example, is a really handsome town with the rivers and the hills."


***Its a damn shame that it had to take Obama to say positive and productive things about OUR city...but because it just happens to be the 1st BLACK PRESIDENT of the USA....we should be proud!***
