DBlock Mega Muzik / 1017Kartel Records
DBLOCK MEGA MUZIK / 1917 KARTEL RECORDS began in the in 90s when super producer Don Mega stepped on the New York Hip Hop scene and began working with the legendary label DBLOCK Records. Producing with this label for many years Don Mega mastered his craft and in Fall 2011 branched out on his own to open DBLOCK MEGA MUZIK RECORDS. This newly formed independent label was launched in Miami Florida with the blessing of his label mates Jadakiss, Styles P & Sheek Louch, and has since been building and expanding at a rapid pace.
Most recently, in Spring 2013 Don Mega sat down with president of BRICKSQUAD to discuss how by working together they could best impact the industry by merging the NEW YORK CITY FLAVOR that DBlock impacted the industry with along with the new school influence of Brick Squad and this is how SQUAD 1017KARTEL was born and added under the MEGA MUZIK LLC umbrella of companies. The two masterminds came together to plot and create countless opportunities and projects that independent artists across the nation need access to.
DBLOCK MEGA MUZIK / BRICK SQUAD KARTEL RECORDS is operating as a successfully independent label that allows artists to develop their skills no matter the age, genre or location. Since this label has been formed partnerships have been created with reputable companies in order to bring the best opportunities we can to our artists: mentoring, press kits and bios, artist development, career strategizing, production, projects, studio time, branding, marketing, distribution & management. We also offer opportunities thru clothing and liquor ventures, TV and video partnerships, talent searches, tours and our upcoming reality show.
Currently the labels full focus is directed to two main areas: the “I Never Sleep” Make Me A Star USA Talent Search and working with charities and youth programs, specifically the Boys and Girls Club in every city visited. Artists are being recruited to work with the label and in many cases have been signed on – especially in the untouched areas deep in the American states. This tour has been aggressively in full swing since November 2011 and still has many cities to cover as it has just started on the second leg of the schedule.
DBLOCK MEGA MUZIK / 1017 KARTEL RECORDS believe strongly in giving back and paying our blessings forward. Without the path being laid by legends such as Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Waka Flocka & Gucci Mane we would not have the foundation to provide what we do as well as we do in such a short time. Huge amounts of respect to all these Executives including Don Mega, to all the representatives involved / supporting this movement and the to the entire team at DBLOCK MEGA MUZIK / 1017 KARTEL RECORDS for working so hard to make the dream come true for everyone.
