Beat*Shot Music head DJ Trumastr & J-Live will be hosting his 3rd Annual Beat*Shot Spins for J Dilla, A Whole Case-A-Dilla on February 4, 2011 at Red Square in Albany. DJ Trumastr conceived of the idea to honor the late, great hip-hop producer J Dilla. James Dewitt Yancey was behind many of hip-hops hits, by artists such as Erykah Badduh, Tribe Called Quest, Common, Busta Rhymes, Slum Village, The Pharcyde and many more. True passes the proceeds on to the J Dilla Foundation, which provides funding for inner-city music programs and scholarships in James’s name. Local musicians, including Glens Falls’s very own Rawstrumentals and Midas from Sub-Bombin Records will be performing Dilla tributes and tunes. Local visual artists will also be selling artwork of inspired by Jay Dee. When True got in touch with us about creating the look for this years event, we couldn’t pass it up and wanted to be a part of one of Albany’s top events. We commissioned an illustration of the producer by Corey John who created a unique perspective of Dilla, while using his unique illustration style. The design will be incorporated into web, print and shirts for the event. Local music and hip-hop fans out there in Albany on February 4, come out to Red Square to pay tribute, and have a great time for a great cause.

Adirondack Resorts Press, Inc. has been printing, publishing and designing newspapers, brochures and post cards in the Lake George region since 1923. The printers invented Colorgraph™ technology, which was a unique method of 4-color printing. The process produced rich and vibrant publications for its clients. Adirondack Resorts Press will be launching a line of merchandise coined Adirondack Resorts Presswear. The merchandise will include original and exclusive artwork that Adirondack Resorts Press created for the businesses back in the mid 20th century. The line will be offered starting Summer of 2011 exclusively at Happy Jack’s in Bolton Landing. We will be working with Adirondack Resorts Press and Happy Jack’s with the design of the shirts, merchandise and online store for the line of clothing. We also recreated the brand for Adirondack Resorts Press for their new designs and online store launch which is meant to bring the brand up-to-speed while retaining its older, visual roots from the 1950′s.
