DTR45 Announces Latest Roster Additions

DTR45 announced today the signing of two prolific hip hop artists from different sides of the continent.

Bay Area based emcee Paulie Rhyme, who has had a working relationship with DTR45 since 2000 and has toured with the label several times (including 2006’s Guy on the Touch Tour and 2008’s Green Giants Tour), recently signed a multi-year management deal which includes touring, promotion and publicity efforts.  Paulie Rhyme, born Paul Richardson, is one of the hardest working indie acts in the industry, having toured consistently for 3 years on several continents, founding his indie imprint Browntown Wreckords, and releasing several projects to high acclaim—both as a solo act and with groups Public Radio and Finless Brown. He also recently started the new group, Miles Outside; a cross genre, boundary-pushing band which describes itself as an aural explosion enveloping every musical genre you've experienced glued together on hip hop construction paper using an alternative paste. 

Says Paulie Rhyme: “I have worked with DTR on and off since 2000 first in Cleveland and then in the Bay. I have watch the company evolve, grow, and find success while staying true to themselves. We are both dedicated to making quality music, increasing our presence on the national scene, and taking our message to the next level. After working for years as separate entities, it felt right to take the next step and make our relationship official.”

Also signing a multi-year deal is Ottawa-bred, Montreal-based emcee/producer Devin Atherton. Using his surname as his stage, Atherton is a consummate professional and has taken the Canadian scene by storm. A one-man hip hop machine, Atherton currently writes, produces, and performs all of his own music; has toured extensively, received several awards, and been featured at Candian  Music Week and NXNE. Founder of his imprint Vinyl Tap Music, Atherton is partners with Toronto-based duo The Leathers with cohort P-Brain. The duo will be releasing a leather-bound 7” record in 2009.

Atherton commented, “I knew that this was the right step for me considering the amount of effort and work Tone and DTR45 have already put in for me. I’ve heard that the hardest thing in the world to do is to find someone who believes in you. DTR45 believes."
