CEO and Founder: Nate Edwards born in Lincoln Heights, Ohio a.k.a. Zone 15 and moved to Dallas, Texas in 1981. I conceptualized and created D-Town Records I founded D-Town Records in November 2004, out of a company I had created one year prior. This company is EIEG LLC. And is a Tear 2 supplier to General Motors. EIEG LLC. Stands for Edwards Independent Entertainment Group.

 

 

Background:

EIEG, LLC (Edwards Independent Entertainment Group) was conceptualized and created in 2003, entirely by Nate Edwards. EIEG, LLC was originally developed as a tier 2 supplier to General Motors CCRW (Convey Controls Robotics and Welding) group in Detroit Michigan Central Office. EIEG covers GM manufacturing plant throughout the US, Canada and Mexico offering project management for the design, budgeting and implementation of manufacturing equipment for current and new vehicles. D-Town Records was originally developed as an artist management and music promotions company as our primary focus. As D-Town Records started to move forward in the artist management arena it became apparent to us that we needed additional strength in other areas of the music industry, to be able to attract clients that were experienced and professional enough to provide D-Town Records with considerable management and promotion commissions. Since then D-Town Records has continued to experience a constant change and has devolved into NateE Entertainment and EIEG Publishing, and become a multi-faceted global music entertainment company. Through many years of networking and adding team members with continual interaction and steady involvement in the music entertainment industry, D-Town Records has now become a very well respected Indie Label in the music industry. The new entertainment division of Eieg brought new business to D-Town Records with the addition of high caliber music industry personnel and artists who began to take notice of who D-Town Records is and where our vision will eventually lead us. D-Town Records has recruited and aligned itself with some of the best music industry professionals with proven track records that the industry has to offer. We have always had the music artist in mind as the core focus of our business. D-Town Records is a very artist friendly music entertainment company and will always remain so. Over two years of extensive research on the strengths and weaknesses of the Major Labels and the entertainment industry as a whole, have helped us formulate a very specific strategy to help D-Town Records, gain and maintain a major market share of these industries as a whole. D-Town Records philosophy is to take old world music industry mentality and infuse it with new world technology thus granting D-Town Records a competitive edge. D-Town Records philosophy can be easily be understood and embraced by the recording industry and the entertainment industry, especially after the music piracy scandal, because the labels now see the benefit of hybrid entertainment companies like D-Town Records. From the very beginning of D-Town Records, Nate Edwards has maintained the overall vision of goals and strategies to make D-Town Records a global leader in the independent music and entertainment industries.

Reviews include:

well sung and rapped
I like the voice of the woman, fresh and very lithe, also strong. The background vocals are very well set. The main pattern is good balanced. I like the drum section as well.The rapped parts are very good to, a bit nasaly but agressif, though. I'm missing a bridge which brings in other harmonies. The End is quiet abrupt. Listening to it for the second time, I find out that the beginning builds up an expection which is suddenly changed by the beat, that's original. All in all: Nice production!
- lauradee from Germany on 2Jan2006

Really nice, original.
This is a strong track, beginning to end. I don't hear a lot of good female rappers these days and this was definitley on par with professional sounding hip-hop recordings. The beat is excellent, the lyrics engaging... very well done.
- dubstyle5000 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 23Jan2006

The real stuff
Wow,nice groove. The rhythm is great and the vocals are very nice. This sounds like the real stuff. Great work!
- Frenz from Zeist, Netherlands on 30Dec2005

Not bad
I'm a vocal coach and for me to say I like the female voice is saying something. You have that sound that teenagers is bouncing to right now. Song wise it sound like you're angry at somebody and just had to vent. What better way than music. Lyrics fall in line with my last statement. overall I think that the market would eat you up in a minute if given the chance. You got it! Move away from the Lil Moe sound your voice is to pretty for that.

For Immediate Release

 

December 29, 2005

 

Nate Edwards and his D-Town Record Company is ready to Roll in ‘06


Dallas, Texas – The stars at night are huge and immaculately brighter, thanks to the emergence of Dallas, Texas new R&B/Hip Hop label, D-Town Records.  With album releases slated for 2006, D-Town plans on mirroring the success of the record labels from their neighboring city of Houston.

A brief overview of the company is as follows: Nate Edwards is the Owner/CEO and founder of D-Town Records. D-Town Records was created out of EIEG, LLC that stands for ‘Edwards Independent Entertainment Group’. “We at EIEG took on this project to help a colleague, who at the time was managing a Rhythm & Blues singer in 2004,” says the prolific CEO of D-Town. “Since then, we have signed two dynamic artists in LG3 (R&B/Hip Hop Group) and Geisha (Vocalist). Both artists are slated for album releases in 2006.”

D-Town Records is determined to bring a fresh new image and sound to music. With artists who are already winning awards online in the lines of, “Best Melody, Best Female Vocals, Best Mood in Hip Hop, and many others”, it’s not hard to see why D-Town will not only turn heads, but open up the ears of disenfranchised fans across the nation who miss hearing thought provoking and gratifying music on the airwaves. “I am all about creating and distributing a product that is worth its weight in gold,” says Mr. Edwards. “My love for music runs as deep as my love for playing every Sunday for the greatest sport in the world (NFL). You are taught as a player to leave everything that you have on the field. And the artists of D-Town Records live by the very same teachings that I stand for.  I’ll let the music speak for itself.”
