Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes and D.J. B.Original Presents the America’s Most Mixtape by B.T. Lucci


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2014

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the release of the America’s Most Mixtape by B.T. Lucci presented by D.J. B.Original. The 19 track project is currently available for download. The mixtape features appearances from Cashmere and Big Twins.

B.T. Lucci is an emcee from Altadena, California; a small town next to Pasadena in Los Angeles County. Plagued by the street mentality of which he was brought up, B.T. sold drugs and was involved with gangs in his teenage years and early twenties. But, understanding the outcome of such a lifestyle, B.T. choose to change his ways, signing up and completing his 4 year degree at a prestigious college in California. Though he possessed a true talent for lyricism and delivery, most of B.T.s life he had to put his passion for music to the side to complete school and go to work everyday to help out his mother. After losing his father when he was seventeen years old, B.T.s brother took on responsibility for supporting the family inspiring B.T. to do the right thing for not only himself but his family as well. Spreading his story of hope and perseverance as well as juggling his quickly rising corporate career, B.T. provides a rags to riches story that instills confidence in those youth who feel trapped due to the environment in which they were raised.

A former colleague of B.T. Lucci who recently linked back up with the prospering emcee, D.J. B.Original also shares a backstory steeped in perseverance. A native to St. Louis, D.J. B.Original first fell in love with Hip Hop after hearing Rappers Delight when he was only five years old. Paying his dues with a dual cassette player, two mismatched turntables, and a boombox; B.Original worked his way toward the top becoming one of St. Louis the most established DJs.

Deciding to try his hand at producing B.Original joined up with the midwest hip-hop collective Jus Us League eventually being mentored by Nelly and the St. Lunatics beat-smith Jason Jay E Epperson. Jason Jay E Epperson took B.Original under his wing teaching him the studio techniques and business practices to build his producer credits. Taking his skills to New York B.Original teamed up with the legendary DJ Chuck Chillout sharpening his skill to move to Los Angeles where he worked hand in hand with Prodigal Sunn from the mighty Sunz of Man/Wu Tang Clan. After working his way to the top of the Sunset Strip DJ scene through DJing, producing, promoting live events, putting out mixtapes, and hosting his own weekly mixshow on 1073WKCR.com; D.J. B.Original started his own entertainment company titled Sound Unity Entertainment. Sound Unity Entertainment has several projects slated to be released in 2014 starting with B.T. Luccis America’s Most.

“America’s Most” by B.T. Lucci, presented by D.J. B. Original, is Sound Unity Entertainment’s debut project. The official introduction to one of Cali’s finest, B.T. Lucci; this street album presents B.T.s compelling rhymes and storytelling accompanied by D.J. B.Originals creative production. With appearances from Cashmere and Big Twins, two of Sound Unity Entertainment’s own, “America’s Most” has a lot to say.

Warner Bros. Records Echosmith Partners with Natural High To Change Lives of Millions This Summer


La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014

Warner Bros. Records’ Echosmith joins a roster of more than 40 Natural High celebrity ambassadors sharing their stories to inspire youth to pursue their passions and say no to drugs and alcohol.

We are really excited to be teaming up with Natural High on Warped Tour. We completely support their cause and its important to us to encourage our fans to follow their dreams with passion and purpose to live high on life,” said Echosmith lead singer, Sydney Sierota

Vans Warped Tour, one of the largest teen-targeted music festivals in North America, attracts nearly 1 million young people nationwide every summer one of the highest-risk time periods for substance abuse. This year, Natural High will be the only drug prevention presence on the entire tour, and will partner with Echosmith to inspire young people to pursue their dreams and say yes to a natural high. They will spread their drug-free message via exclusive social media contests on the road, meet & greets at the Natural High tent and more.

Los Angeles-based alt-pop gem Echosmith is one of the hottest up-and-comers of 2014, named one of MTVs Artists to Watch and Alternative Presss Bands You Need to Know. Their debut album Talking Dreams is out now, featuring the hit single Cool Kids. The four siblings: Sydney (vocals/keyboard); Noah (vocals/bass); Jamie (vocals/guitar); and Graham (drums) have a unique indie-pop sound and feature positive, uplifting lyrics about being young and having fun, without the help of artificial substances.

In light of the recent heroin epidemic and several states legalization of marijuana, Echosmiths partnership with Natural High comes at a time when young people need to hear positive messages about living drug-free. In addition to Echosmith, Natural High collaborates with other influential role models to reach over 7 million youth, capturing stories of how they chose to follow their passions instead of turning to drugs. These positive role models include professional surfer Bethany Hamilton, Grammy Award-winning Switchfoot, motocrosser Travis Pastrana, NBA star Mike Conley Jr., and Olympic gold medal gymnast Jordyn Wieber.

In order to support their efforts on tour with Echosmith, Natural High is launching an Indiegogo campaign in hopes of raising $ 5,000. Bonus: They’re also offering plenty of perks for those who help them on their journey, including backstage passes and Echosmith hangouts.

As Natural High celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, theyre hoping the exposure from Warped Tour will help further their mission of inspiring over 10 million youth to reject drugs and alcohol and pursue their dreams instead.
