Despite producing numerous standout tracks for the likes of Snoop Dogg and Kurupt, Terrace Martin’s first love remains the saxophone. It’s fitting then, that his latest release is titled 808s & Sax Breaks. Inspired by Kanye West’s acclaimed 808s & Heartbreaks, Terrace selected the original album’s strongest tracks and reinterprets them as enchanting, sax-infused numbers. Adding a refreshing dimension to an already excellent body of work, 808s & Sax Breaks allows Terrace to display his gifts as a jazz musician. His passion and soulfulness is clearly reflected on this exciting new release that should be embraced by Hip-Hop and jazz fans alike.

Synopsis: From Executive Producers Bruce Willis and Queen Latifah, The Hip Hop Project is the compelling story o Kazi, a formerly homeless teenager who inspired a group of New York City teens to transform their life stories into powerful works of art, using hip hop as a vehicle for self-development and personal discovery.
Kazi challenges these young people to write music about real issues affecting their lives as they strive to overcome daunting obstacles to produce a collaborative album. Russell Simmons, hip hop mogul and long-time supporter of the project, partners with Bruce Willis to donate a recording studio to the Hip Hop Project. After four years of collaboration, the group produces a powerful and thought-provoking CD filled with moving personal narratives and sharp social commentary. In contrast to all of the negative attention focused on hip hop and rap music, this is a story of hope, healing and the realization of dreams.

ERIKA JAYNE’S DEBUT ALBUM PRETTY MESS IS THE NO. 5 DANCE RECORD OF THE YEAR ON THE BILLBOARD DANCE CHARTS
Billboard has released their Year-End/Best Of charts and Erika Jayne’s debut album, Pretty Mess, climbed to the No. 5 spot on the Billboard year-end dance chart. Pretty Mess also features her three No. 1 dance hits Give You Everything, Stars andRollercoaster.
Erika’s sassy style has earned her comparisons to Madonna trapped in the moment when she recorded theErotica album, Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge or Gwen Stefani in a burlesque act. She’s equal partsHollywood glamour and S&M chic and quite possibly the spawn of a Sapphic union between Rita Hayworth and Traci Lords.
Pretty Mess features an all-star production team including Eshtero, Sheila E., the son of Isaac Hayes and producer Peter Rafelson who’s worked with Madonna and Britney.

ON FEBUARY 9, 2010 VP RECORDS PRESENTS THE RETURN OF SANCHEZ WITH HIS NEWEST ALBUM NOW AND FOREVER
Now and Forever features 15 new Sanchez tracks, produced by Donovan Germain of Penthouse Recordings. This is by far Sanchez’s best work to date. Along with delivering the sound that he is known for, the majority of this album contains original songs from Sanchez.
The first single from Now and Forever is “Longing To Come Home” on the Protect & Serve riddim, it is currently climbing the US world & reggae charts. “Won’tSurrender” touches on the controversial subject matter of infidelity and what an untrusting companion goes through in this situation. On the song “What Do I Have To Say,” Sanchez is trying to capture the attention of a woman that he is attracted to. “Release the Property” is about the elusive quality that the one you’re pursuing possesses. Sanchez goes on to explain the elements that draws him to a woman. The songs “Who Am I Without You,” “Extraordinary” and the title track‘Now and Forever’ displays the loving and sensitivity that proves why Sanchez is one of the most beloved Lovers Rock Singers in Reggae Music. NOW AND FOREVER is classic Sanchez.
Born Kevin Anthony Jackson, Sanchez grew up in the Stony Hill and Waterhouse sections of Kingston, Jamaica. Like many of the island’s vocal legends, his first singing experience was in church; specifically St. Catherine parish’s Rehobth Epostlic Church. Sanchez is a Reggae legend and is known for remaking various hit songs. His gift for crooning romantic lyrics over hard edged dancehall riddims has earned him numerous hits throughout his career. Spanning over two decades, 15 plus albums and legions fans; the veteran recording artist and consummate performer is back.

GUETTA IS ONE OF THE YEARS MOST CELEBRATED ARTISTS WITH FIVE GRAMMY NOMINATIONS, WHILE
“SEXY BITCH/CHICK” IS A 4x PLATINUM DIGITAL SINGLE AND DOMINATES AT #1 ON CANADIAN RADIO CHARTS
TWO UPCOMING SOLD OUT SHOWS IN CANADA
In just over three months David Guetta‘s album ‘One Love‘ has gone Platinum in Canada! Since its #2 Debut here on the Nielsen SoundScan Charts, the much celebrated album has also generated a 4x Platinum Digital Single (“Sexy Bitch/Chick” featuring Akon) and a Platinum Single (“When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland).
Guetta recently had a big night at “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live – Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,” not only did he perform on the live telecast with the Black Eyed Peas, but he picked up five Grammy nominations. This is the first time he has received a nomination. Guetta is nominated in the Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year categories as producer of the Black Eyed Peas monster smash “I Gotta Feeling.” His own album ‘One Love‘ earned an impressive three nominations for Best Dance Electronic Album Of The Year, along with Best Dance Recording and Best Remixed Recording for the album’s first single “When Love Takes Over.”
“I really didn’t expect to receive five Grammy nominations,” said Guetta. “It’s fantastic that the Academy have recognized the impact dance music has had in North America this year. My mission was for this music to be heard by and touch millions. By bringing together the best urban artists and electronic music, I feel the barriers are coming down and we are together.”
Add to this the incredible popularity and success of “Sexy Bitch/Chick” around the world and what a year it has been for Guetta! Here in Canada the song has held the #1 chart position at CHR Radio for eight consecutive weeks and has held the #1 spot on the All Formats Chart since November 1. The video has also reached #1 on the Much Music, MusiquePlus and Much More Music Countdown Charts.
It only seems fitting that Guetta will be back in Canada to end this decade and kick off the new one with two highly anticipated and SOLD OUT DJ shows in Vancouver on December 30 at the Commodore Ballroom (sold out in 40 minutes!) and in Edmonton on January 1 at the Edmonton Event Centre.
