Cry for me Argentina

And every other nation on this earth, for I shant attend CMJ this year.

And I am mostly pissed because I am going to miss the event below! International Hip-Hop at CMJ!

Global Hip Hop returns to CMJ as Import/Export
The only Intl Rap at the Festival

The Global platform for digital music promotion Digiwaxx has partnered with The Bloom Effect – a full service publicity/marketing/events company along with the multi-media artist Miz Metro for an unforgettable and innovative night of International Hip Hop. The event called Import/Export takes artists from far away places as Sudan, Israel, France, Norway, UK into a comfortable setting whilst providing a vehicle and platform for exposure and discovery on a NY stage. These are U.S debuts for most of the artists.

The event takes place at 92YTribeca. 200 Hudson St- Downtown Tribeca on Thursday October 21st 2010. The show will begin at 8 PM and will last until 3 AM and will feature live international hip-hop music and DJs spinning music hosted by Eternia who is receiving a fair amount of buzz and critical acclaim for her latest project on Fat Beats. She’s been back and forth from Toronto and NY most recently making NY her home and traveling around the world.

The College Music Journal Marathon (CMJ) is New York’s largest music, film and media conference and will host hundreds of live performances, films, lectures and networking events. “CMJ is a perfect place for a global hip-hop event like this” said The Bloom Effect CEO, Fiona Bloom. “An event that unites MCs from a variety of backgrounds, countries and nationalities is exactly the kind of event that we want to be promoting at a global music conference like CMJ. I’m still baffled that we’re the only showcase of its kind. As big as the movement’s growing- 1 Intl Hip Hop showcase doesn’t really give it the attention it deserves but we promise to deliver a night of historic measures”.

“We were looking for something fresh and Global to attach ourselves to and this Import/Export opportunity was the perfect event. We’re extra excited because we’ll be distributing a very special compilation mixtape just for this show! Limited edition.” Founder Corey Llewellyn states.

In addition to the mix CD – Myxer is also hosting a special ringtone download mixtape- one of first of its kind delivered through its mobile platform free of charge throughout the CMJ week.

DJ Mikey Fresh is mixing both the Myxer and Digiwaxx CD.

Here’s the trailer

“It’s incredible to see such diversity in an event like this” said Eternia. “To have artists from all over the world performing on the same stage together shows how global and powerful hip-hop culture has become, plus, I follow 2 other amazing hosts from the previous shows so I’m honored. Both Pharoahe Monch and Blitz The Ambassador are amazing company to be in”.
