Each month, the campaign will offer a new reason to smile to the online communities for each brand under which the affiliated dental groups operate, reminding people of the power of contagious joy of a confident smile.

South Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Miamilcious media, an entertainment company based in South Beach, Florida, announces the launch of it’s new music label ‘Miamilicious’ focusing on electronic artists, DJ-Producers, and Artist-Producers in most genres of house and popular dance music.
The labels first major release and video “Eastwooding in the USA” is available now at iTunes.
JamesM, artist and label founder, states “Miamilcious is the brain child of my having seen the things that are problematic in the music industry for new electronic and dj-producer artists including the complexity of how to navigate the maze of getting your music out to the world, often times literally from the bedroom into the retail channel, the complete absence of ways for artists to get real professional feedback and mentoring for their work, and the difficulty artists have in developing their craft and legitimizing themselves as an artist and brand. I looked at all the things creating the roadblocks preventing people from achieving their dreams that involve music come and created a label whose services are specifically tailored to eliminate the road blocks.”
Miamilicious’ motto is “Artists First” and it’s goal is to give new artists an easier path to find themselves musically and to get published and distributed. For established artists, “Artists first” means a better licensing deal and a bigger percentage of ownership of songs compared to most other labels.
JamesM continues, “It’s common knowledge that the last surviving giants of the old music label model are always going out find and create their next Rihanna or Bieber voice-bot and make them huge. But outside of that very rare scenario all other artists are on their own. Even the independent model has come up short since most indies kept the same closed door policies typical of the old, big label and simply aren’t responsive to new artists who approach them. DJ-Producers and Writer-Producers can’t get people to listen to their demos, read their emails or return their calls so we decided to create something that is a complete 180 from all the none senese and b.s. Our approach is, for a small monthly co-op fee that’s less than an iPhone bill, we’ll get your music published and out to the world and we’ll even give you tools and professional mentoring to further your development.”
Miamilicious member artist services include: Mastering, publishing, and distribution to major digital retailers, creative guidance and mentoring via production critiques in most major audio softwares (ableton, maschine, logic, reason, and cubase), co-branded license merchandise designed to add a revenue stream to label members, artist credibility via affiliation with a Miami label based in a world epicenter of Music, access to the world’s largest sound file digital library for compositions, performances at Miamilicious hosted DJ and artist events in South Beach, and collaboration opportunities with other member artists on the label both online and during special Miami events.
Most electronic and house genres are to be represented on the label.
The labels first major release and video “Eastwooding in the USA” is available now at iTunes.
