FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DaBaby’s Billion Dollar Ent. has some new competition in the Carolinas. Traxstar Music Group sets sights on igniting the region’s R&B and Pop music scene
Charlotte, North Carolina production label aims to be the record label of the future
Charlotte, N.C. — June 1, 2021 — Queen City music producer “King Mydas” is tired of the same old thing: raps without melodies, tired beats, and an overall lack of inspiration in modern music.
As a producer, he wants to challenge the status quo in Charlotte’s music scene by launching his own production label. With TraxStar Music Group (TMG), his vision is to redefine the Charlotte sound while launching the careers of versatile and talented emerging artists.
TMG is an independent, African American-owned production label with Mydas serving as the company’s CEO and leading producer. His aim to be the first music producer with the ambition to start a major new label that not only produces beats and music but maintains its own roster of artists, joining other local labels like Billion Dollar Baby Ent., Social Currency Enterprises, and South Coast Music Group.
“Billion Dollar Baby Ent. Is cool…. but does not offer any variety or versatility. All the artists sound the same”. – King Mydas
Unlike his peer labels, Mydas wants to broaden the scope of TMG’s sound beyond rap to include R&B, Pop influences.
“No other label, especially in the Carolinas, is doing what I'm doing,” he said. “There are zero R&B artists and let us not talk about pop. We want TraxStar to be the home for the best hip hop, R&B and pop and even country artists in the coastal Carolina region.” – King Mydas
Most producers today, Mydas said, just make and sell beats hoping to get a major placement. TMG is a small “production label” focused on creating quality demos emerging artists can use to shop to a bigger record companies. The label is built around a model to offer “shopping deals” under which TMG has a limited time of nine months to find a suitable label deal for each artist, who participate in the negotiation of each deal.
Traxstar Music has also signed its first artist – Mizz Skyy. Mizz Skyy’s vocals are inspired, direct and exciting, with a very dynamic feel and a stunning tone that sounds very charismatic and loaded with personality. In addition to that, the sound of this release has a smooth, balanced tone, which really makes the audience think of some of the very best modern R&B music out there.
“Artist management is also a HUGE part of TMG as well. My goals are to create a long-term successful career for the artist. A lot of my time now is spent building meaningful relationships that will further me and my artist in the future.” – King Mydas
“Leadership isn’t a skill or something that can be taught, leadership is a TRAIT. You either have it or you don’t…I have it”. I want to be better than my competing managers, which is why I am currently reading and studying the book, “Artist Management for the Music Business by Paul Allen”.
Mydas built TraxStar from his own humble beginnings with a goal to skyrocket the label’s affiliate artists to the national stage. As an artist and music visionary, he said his goal is to give a leg up to the region’s best talent. Mydas’ goal is to turn TraxStar from a production label into a full record label focused on managing artists as he transitions into a mogul role.Learn more about TraxStar Music Group at https://www.traxstarmusic.com.
