Unsigned Artist Go Unpaid...

MySpace/Imeem Deal Leaves Thousands of Artists Unpaid
By Eliot Van Buskirk


Independent artists who sold their music through imeem’s Snocap music storefronts on MySpace and other sites won’t be paid what’s owed even after MySpace Music’s acquisition of some — but not all — of imeem, Wired.com has learned.

MySpace Music bought “certain assets” from imeem, and they do not include imeem’s liability to more than 110,000 independent artists with Snocap storefronts, according to a source with inside knowledge of the deal. Those artists’ contracts mandate they be paid each month if they’re owed more than $20. Some artists have been owed money for more than a year, and the chance of them seeing any money now is, for all intents and purposes, zero, the source says.

Artists attempting to get paid for songs sold through Snocap stores — many or most of which were on MySpace itself — must get in line with imeem’s bank and other creditors. MySpace Music paid less than $1 million for imeem, so it’s doubtful much will remain for the artists.

“MySpace Music bought a limited set of imeem’s assets including the domain name and certain technology and trademarks,” a MySpace spokeswoman said in an e-mail to Wired.com. “The asset sale to MySpace Music was part of a foreclosure process which resulted from the lien certain secured creditors had on all the assets of imeem. MySpace Music did not acquire imeem’s outstanding debts, including the money imeem owed to artists under the Snocap relationship. Upon closing, users trying to access the Imeem website were redirected to MySpace Music. We did not acquire imeem’s contracts or relationships as we have our own in place. MySpace Music has its own distribution platform, which includes relationships with prominent aggregators and indie labels, that provides indie artists ways to monetize their music on our site.”

One source with inside knowledge of the deal said MySpace Music’s rushed purchase of imeem’s assets forced it to “leave behind anything that either had explicit liability or potential liability,” including Snocap and its debts to thousands of independent artists and bands.

Napster creator Shawn Fanning co-founded Snocap in 2002 to let artists sell their music through an embeddable storefront widget. At one point, the service was marketed as the exclusive way for artists to sell music on MySpace. Imeem bought Snowcap last summer. But because MySpace left most aspects of Snocap out of its acquisition of imeem’s assets, all 110,000 or so of those storefronts are gone. The server that hosts them is offline and so is the Snocap website.

Possibly the last band to be paid by imeem for music sold through a Snocap store embedded on MySpace was Javelin, which happens to be my brother’s and cousin’s band. After they inquired about money listed as owed in its online account, imeem sent them a check for about $400 for approximately a year and a half of sales.

That may not be “a princely sum,” as Tim Quirk put it. But for growing bands — many of whose income trickles in from a variety of sources — it matters, especially when you consider that imeem’s payments to major labels helped drive it out of business in the first place.

There’s nothing technically wrong with MySpace Music only acquiring certain assets from imeem, and teams of lawyers scrutinized the deal before it was done. Regardless, in this latest round of digital musical chairs, independent artists who set up music stores in good faith have been left holding the bag.

Grand Prize Winners From Last Year



Grand Prize Winner From Last Year

Rising from the clubs of Atlanta Georgia, ’Grand Prize Winners From Last Year’ are busting down the doors of the pop scene with their avant-garde songwriting and electrifying live show. The band is currently recording their debut album that combines Believe’s bubbly arrangements and poppy guitar work with K. Slaughter’s banging hip hop drums and percussion which are then backed by Whiteshoes Blue on bass grooves and trumpet. Add to this the polished synths and trombone hits from Platipus Jones and you get a musical catalogue boiling over with uber-memorable tunes. Their sound has been compared to "Outkast meets Green Day" and with standout tracks like "When You’re Not Around" don’t be surprised if you soon find ’Grand Prize Winners From Last Year’ at the top of the pop charts and beyond.



The Doll Daze Rockz!



The Doll Daze

Three words to describe this quirky native Atlantan that has learned that if you don't fit in simply create your own lane and ride. 2006 marked her first release with "Watching Carousels" a pop/rock fling with soul. There was some success and learning experiences with that project.In 2008 she hit the road for Toronto, Canada where her band awaited but problems with Canadian customs forced her to take her bags and box of CDs and hit the East Coast. Touring club to club she finally made enough money to settle in DC for a while. Now back in Atlanta she has birthed a new baby with "Acid Report" a 6 song EP full of power vocals, awkward pitches, and musical changes. Sometimes pretty and pop, and other times ruff rock soul is what sets her apart from other female artist. Straight no chaser. Full of southern charm but sure to disarm you and leave you DAZED!!!!



Innate Forte



Innate Forte

They began their quest 6,000 miles away from home, leaving London City to arrive in the city that never sleeps, New York. Under their own guidance at the tender age of 16, they fought through many bitter conditions to find themselves at the doorstep of New York's biggest independent record label, Liquid Fusion.
Captivated by their youthful yet developed essence, the boys won over CEO Brewer Shettles and were submitted into the 2004 Grammy Awards for their self penned single "Pop That". That benchmarked a Volta better known as a "changing point" for their careers...
Innate Forte had tasted their first few drops of success and a new addiction has been born. In the summer of 2004, Innate Forte returned to the United States this time to visit music city itself, Atlanta, Georgia.
Innate Forte quickly became a hot topic in the south, returning to and from the USA a furthered 24 times. They began to work with some of the industry's biggest producers including G Productions/Konvict Music, Charlie J, Teddy Riley, Dallas Austin meanwhile developing their own skills as aspiring writers and producers.


Richelle L. Brown



Richelle L. Brown

Bringing back true moxie and funk to the music sphere. Richelle L. Brown is that missing energy. Crowned the new queen of Electro Funk Dance Music, a passionate singer, songwriter and performer birthed from that gritty red clay and southern spunk of what we innately call Georgia. Richelle L. Brown joins the movement of retro songstresses that are invading the hyperspace experience. Similar to the Acid Jazz wave of the 90’s that garnered such artist as Nadea Davenport; Richelle L. Brown is that new funk.


Lundy



LUNDY

Playing to raucous crowds all across the country, LUNDY combines the heart of the Classic Rock band with the soul of the R&B poets, and adds a touch of Pop to the mix. A favorite party band on the club circuit, LUNDY can go from AC/DC to Prince, and Van Morrison to Van Halen, in addition to their own Power-Pop renditions. Hailing from Columbia, SC, LUNDY consists of Vocalist/Bassist Brent Lundy, Uber Guitarist/Vocalist Donnie Scearce and Skinbangin/Sticktwirlin Jayson Moore. LUNDY's great song selection, full vocal harmonies and energetic live show is sure to be a booty shakin' crowd pleasin' good time for your wedding, private party, festival or club!



Rico Wade



Rico Wade

During the mid- to late '90s, Organized Noize was the preeminent production crew for Atlanta-area contemporary R&B and rap, crafting chart-topping hits like TLC's "Waterfalls" and En Vogue's "Can't Let Go (Love)" as well as critically acclaimed albums for OutKast and Goodie Mob. Though the trio, comprised of Rico Wade, Ray Murray, and Sleepy Brown, made a few attempts to strike out on their own in the mid-'90s as Society of Soul and Sleepy's Theme, they primarily worked behind the scenes, elevating other artists to success with impressive frequency. Organized Noize's output may have slowed over the years, yet their initial work proved incredibly influential upon the burgeoning Atlanta music scene that came to light so brightly just after the turn of the century.



Dungeoneze



DUNGEONEZE

DUNGEONEZE is the further evolution of the idea behind the DUNGEON FAMILY.... The OUTKAST,GOODIEMOB, SLEEPY BROWN,SOCIETY OF SOUL,BACKBONE,BIG RUBE,WITCHDOCTOR,COOLBREEZE these all are permanent fixtures in the landscape of american music.. The Minds that collectively call themselves ORGANIZED NOIZE Productions have unleashed a brand new sound and a new cast of characters to the scene. bound by a unique blend of science and struggle with touch of swag. A colorful group from around the world still gathering for the coming storm. Dungeoneze is the language,sound and style of this new culture. To fear the future is foolish.....We must be constantly prepared for its always imminent arrival...DUNGEONEZE can be a catalyst of change.

BackBone Dungeon Family Generation One

BackBone






Performing on albums from Outkast and the Goodie Mob and then going on tour with them would be a dream come true for most up-and-coming artists. For the Dungeon Family's Backbone, this very experience prepared him for his debut album, Concrete Law, which is scheduled for a June 19 release.

The Atlanta rapper, who appeared on "We Luv Deez Hoez," from Outkast's triple platinum Stankonia album, wasn't in a rush to release his own collection, which is anchored by the single "5-Deuce, 4-Tre." "It's nothing that I feel antsy about," says the man also known as Mr. Fat Face 100. Nonetheless, he doesn't mind that it is finally his time in the forefront. "Finally, somebody has seen that it's time for me to happen," he said. "Not that I'm a superstar or anything like that, but I definitely have enough musical talent to carry that title." Production from usual Dungeon Family suspects Organized Noize and Earthtone 3 propels Concrete Law, which also features beatwork from Lucky Calhoun, individual members of the Goodie Mob and Mark Twain from the Attic Crew, among others.

Like much of Goodie Mob's material, Backbone's album focuses on political commentary informed by the experience of being a young black male raised in the racially charged South.

"We being black men from the ages of 16 to 25, most of us don't understand that the game [of life in America] is set up to destroy us, literally," he said. "If you're going to be out in the streets, like they say when you're little, look both ways before you cross so you don't get hit. You've got to respect this game before you get in it. You've got to be cautious and read the street signs. I want to go into the depths of the community and reach the youngest of the Gs. I want them to realize that the game is a set-up and we're losing." This type of insight may seem out of place for listeners who only gave "We Luv Deez Hoez" a cursory listen. Backbone points out that his verse didn't match the potentially derogatory tone of the cut's title.

"There's a little science behind 'We Luv Deez Hoez,'" he said. "If you listen to the chorus, it's like we're being sarcastic about it. If you listen to my lyrics, I'm really telling [the girl] how much I appreciate her. I'm not degrading her at all. I've got a mother, grandmother, a sister and a wife. You don't have to do all this to be beautiful. You can do it all naturally." Born and bred in the S.W.A.T.S. section of Atlanta, Backbone connected with the other members of the Dungeon Family about 11 years ago. Led by producers Organized Noize and rap crews Outkast and Goodie Mob, the Georgia-based collective ushered in the modern day version of Southern hip-hop with the 1993 release of Outkast's "Player's Ball" single.

Since then, Backbone has worked with Outkast on their third and fourth albums, as well as with Goodie Mob on their second and third releases. He toured with the Mob in support of their Still Standing album in 1998, which took him overseas. Earlier this year, Backbone was a featured performer on the Outkast-fronted Stank Love Tour.

Even though he is just now releasing his own material, Backbone says he was just waiting for his turn in the spotlight.

"People always ask me why I didn't come out back in the day," he said. "It wasn't my decision. It's just all about time and God knew when the time was right to do this."

The Dungeon Family Reunion?

DUNGEON FAMILY REUNION?
7:30AM Phone rings. Caller: "Hello? Is this SideStreet KED?" SideStreet: "Yeah! Who the fuc is this?" Caller: "The Homie "Cadillac". You don't know me but, I fux wit yo family. Khujo Goodie, Gipp... everybody". SideStreet: "Why 7:30 in the mornin' Cuz?"...
To make a long story short, The DF/Goodie Mob Reunion has been the topic of choice in most circles these days next to Mike's death (RIP). I'm all for the excitement but in my opinion, there is no Dungeon Family "Reunion". The Family has always been a union. To Quote Rico Wade..."AAH"
Dungeoneze is the move. Do U Speak? The Industry Creates Boundaries. The Music Superscedes.
The Goodie Mob Reunion show (Sept.19th, 2009) is sure to be the modern woodstock. We haven't seen The Mob this Millenia! Don't ask me I won't be leakin' any info. Wait for it. Garaunteed Monumental.
 Still Standin'... Unscathed.
