The Global Attack Mixtapes Series is a newly launched music entrainment source destined to take compilation-style recordings to yet unseen worldwide heights – and beyond. The Series was created by entertainment and business impresario Elevated Scott (Scott McDowell); since its conception, Scott and his company Elevated Entertainment Solutions, LLC.
The creative direction and concept of Global Attack Mixtapes is a first of its kind, a pioneering effort for hip hop music worldwide. Scott wanted to take an outside the box approach to the traditional mixtape concept, which is exactly how this series came together. When one thinks of Mixtapes, they think of DJ’s dropping crazing sounds and voice drops, then mixing and scratching. Traditionally mixtapes of this design target an underground audience, not a mix of established Top 40 artists or unsigned indie up-and-comers from all over the world. Global Attack Mixtapes changes that landscape immediately.
Elevated Scott likes to call the series a “HYBRID” of 2 popular music brands: compilation series “NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC”, and the most downloaded mixtapes in the world – Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes. Global Attack Mixtapes takes the international commercial appeal of “NOW THATS WHAT I CALL MUSIC” brand and blends it with the aggressive grassroots marketing of Coast to Coast. Both ideas together create an unmatched framework of sound, creativity, and global marketability.
The Global Attack Mixtapes Series prides itself on worldwide commercial appeal, which separates it from traditional mixtape outlets. Tracks within its catalog feature major American recording artist Rza, Jadakiss, Kid Capri, Gucci Mane, Styles P, Naughty by Nature, Wu-Tang Harlem 6, and Cory Gunz; they’re joined by various emerging artist from such locations around the globe as Belgium, Paris, Tokoyo, United Kingdom, Korea, and Kawait, with more from United States and beyond getting joining this series daily! It may only be a matter of time before the ambitious Global Attack series is comprised of at least 1 artist from every city in every country around the world.
The executives behind The Global Attack Mixtapes Series considers each contributing artist a partner with the project, for the viral marketing campaign to be successful it is imperative each artist uses all available tools to help build awareness of Global Attack Mixtapes.
Elevated Scott says, “I think to cover every surface of the universe, as we all know things always work better when we work together. Global Attack Mixtapes A&R and Account Executives are scouring the Internet through various social network sites and industry relevant sites – Reverb Nation, Sonic Bids, Facebook, Myspace and Twitter – looking for serious artists that are ready to take their music to the next level. When you treat the entertainment industry as a business you will get business results. It’s called show business, not show fun.”
