Mad Decent Announces Joint Venture With Downtown

Just a quick heads up for those of you who haven't heard. Diplo has just announced a new joint venture between his label, Mad Decent, and Warner sublabel Downtown Music. Read more on Billboard.

This essentially means that Mad Decent, a label caught up in the bustle of not-quite-legit mixtapes, bootlegged re-edits and uncleared samples, will get some major label shine. This is quite a bold move on behalf of Warner, and it's certainly a testament to a changing-but-overwhelmed music industry that can't quite make up its mind on whether it would rather arrest these kinds of whippersnappers or work with them.

P.S. Did anyone catch the Rich Boy remix featuring 607 on the Mad Decent blog?

In order that people may be happy in their work, these things are needed: they must be fit for it; they must not do much of it; and they must have a sense of success in it. Post by <a href="http://www.airjordans.cc/jordan-ajf6-28/"> Ajf6 </a>
