[NEWS]: @DJCHUCKT LAUNCHES @THEAUTHORITYDJS OF NC/SC! WE GOT THE ROSTER!


DJ Chuck T is proud to announce the formation of a DJ organization that promises to make a bigger impact on Hip-Hop than any such organization has done in years. The Authority DJ Coalition, created during the fall of 2012, continues Chuck T’s career-long mission to champion The Carolinas, and operates with the sole goal of turning North and South Carolina into a self-sustaining market for music and entertainment.
 
At start-up, The Authority DJ Coalition consists of 30 DJs, based in both North and South Carolina, who share a common dedication to promoting their region and a documented history of supporting local, signed and unsigned talent. They are also a group of DJs who have each developed a far reaching global network that proves that it is entirely possible for The Carolinas to “get on the map” because the world is ready to hear what they have to say. Of course, that’s not news to DJ Chuck T. “Every time I go out of town or talk to someone in the entertainment business,” he says, “whether it’s an artist, record executive, or promoter, they always ask what’s going on in The Carolinas, who they should throw their support behind, and how they can promote their brands here. So, obviously, there’s a huge gap when it comes to knowledge about The Carolinas from the outside coming in, but definitely not because of a lack in interest.” His theory is that the “Carolina Movement” just needed the right group of individuals to lead the charge. “We have a lot of talent here,” he adds, “a lot of talented artists, producers, musicians, DJs and the list goes on and on. We need a coalition to showcase what we have to the outside world. Not just that, but The Carolinas are so big and diverse that we need to let people who are here know what’s going on too.” The Authority DJ Coalition will not just focus solely on promoting Carolina artists, Djs, and music industry professionals to the rest of the nation but also creating effective and affordable marketing strategies and campaigns for artists from other areas to brand themselves and gain exposure in the Carolinas as well. “We don’t want to be small minded and not network with artists and music industry professionals from other areas, no man is an island,” states DJ Chuck T, “our goal is to not only help our artists get national exposure but help artists, both signed and unsigned, from other areas gain exposure here too.”

The Authority DJ Coalition also hopes to tackle the catch-22 that has mired relationships between Carolina DJs and artists for years. Right now, DJs feel like whenever a local artist finds him/herself in a position from which a Carolina DJ could benefit (i.e., a record deal or touring opportunity), they run to larger-named DJs in outside markets. The artists on the other hand feel like the DJs would rather invest the energy into breaking a brand new artist from New York or Atlanta in their local markets than to support the artists whose careers they’ve been able to see develop locally over years. The Authority aims to change that relationship by putting the DJs at the forefront of the “Carolina Movement” and tasking them with the responsibility of shining a national spotlight on their local artists. It will also be these DJs’ duty to create a legacy of support for Carolina artists by mentoring up-and-coming DJs in the region.

As it is now, membership into the coalition will continue to be available by invitation only; with potential members identified by the impact they have within their local market and their ability to grow The Authority DJ Coalition’s vision. And while Chuck T’s goal is to extend the organization’s roster to the DC-Maryland-Virginia area, he has no intention on growing his team beyond that. “I feel like none of the other DJ coalitions are focusing on the talented DJs here in the Mid-Atlantic states, who are just as skilled, talented and definitely connected as their counterparts in larger cities,” he explains. “So my goal is to empower DJs like myself in a way that no other national group has ever done.”
