Fusicology has a new look!

With a new sleek homepage (primed and ready for any PDA on the market!) and more highly effective back end updates, Fusicology has continued to grow and lead by leaps and bounds. New features, widgets and many Web 2.0 functionalities live now on the new Fusicology.com

Last week we launched our annual event listings guide for the Miami Winter Music Conference as well as our 15th city, Philadelphia thanks to our promotional partners at two.one.five

Not only does Fusicology have a clean new look, this exceptional event network site has also just launched the 08 Fusicology Spring Sound Sampler CD. Partnering with artists such as Ron Trent, Maya Azucena, 5 Ela featuring J Dilla and Roy Davis Jr , supported by brands such as Mackie audio and Chocolate City radio, it is flawlessly mixed by Prince’s own DJ Rashida

The Fusicology Spring Sound Sampler will be distributed at national hot spots SXSW and the Miami Winter Music Conference where Fusicology has once again partnered up with the most important events at WMC with artists like Bugz in the Attic & Rich Medina and with events like NextAid and the James Brown Tribute.

With over 125,000 unique viewers and 4.5 million hits per month, Fusicology continues to be the one of the most, if not the most essential online event information hub under a broad, metropolitan urban music umbrella “Defining the Soul Diaspora.”

Five New Cities

Fusicology celebrates another fruitful year with the launch of event listings, news and features for three new cities on Fusicology.com. Columbus, OH; Charlotte, NC; Miami, FL; Philadelphia, PA and Montreal, Canada will be up and running within the 1st Quarter with hand-picked events and content for the savvy urban alternative crowd.

Site Technology Upgrades

After four years as the leading source of relevant nightlife content for urban trendsetters, Fusicology announces another technology upgrade that makes the backend of the site easier to navigate, streamlining the process for the nation’s top promoters. One of the new features allows for automatically re-instating rotating events, instead of the manual updates. In addition, a new dedicated server option adds more power to the site, allowing for faster uploads and content viewing. Stepping the game up from the Cold Fusion technology on which the site was built, Fusicology.com’s new technological upgrades will mean greater functionality with fewer steps!

Content Additions

Fusicology has added great new badges and widgets like our Imeem.com music player and Vimby.com video player to both our mailers and website, allowing for a richer user experience. Currently in development are new sections for the Fusicology.com E-zine, including Green lifestyle, Fashion and Politics pages.

2008 Event Plans

Stay tuned as we continue building for 2008. Fusicology has big plans for the GRAMMY’S in LA, NBA All Star Weekend in New Orleans, South by Southwest in Austin, and the Winter Music Conference in Miami. In addition, our 2008 Spring CD Sampler, mixed down by Prince’s DJ Rashida, will be out in time for all the special events.

Fusicology aims to continue to provide the leaders in forward urban culture with the information they need to set the bar for the evolution of cool with the most discerning eye and ear.

The 3 Finalists all received all expense paid trips to Las Vegas to perform with Chamillionaire and Talib Kweli where 3 judges would decide the winner based on their performance. Tanya Morgan would go onto win and one judge even went as far as saying they’re the “2008 Tribe Called Quest.” The guys are ecstatic as they prepare to release their next 2 projects “The Bridge” and “Brooklynati.” As reward they will receive a Myspace music feature, performances at Myspace secret shows, XM radio spins for 2-3 weeks, an all expense paid to Washington DC to interview on XM radio, a multi-city poster publicity campaign, and a mixtape with a yet to be announced high profile DJ.

It’s that time of year when 2K Sports releases their award winning NBA basketball game. Outside of the obvious graphic, rosters and AI overhaul, the soundtrack is best known for displaying Hip Hop Classics, along with some of the best Underground Hip Hop around.

This year, 2K Sports teamed up and let Dan “The Automator” Nakamura produce one of the best 2K Sports track listings in a long time. The likings of the late J Dilla, Common and Run-DMC, just to name a few. Because we are Dilla fans, we could be a bit bias. You cannot beat ruling the Slam Dunk Contest on the Vegas Strip listening to E=MC2.
