PRESS RELEASE: Hashim Music Founder Says “No Thanks” to Street Sounds 30 Year Anniversary

hashim_music_logo

#hashimmusic #electro #calliste #streetsounds #musicbiz

July 26, 2012 Columbus, Ohio – Electro dance and pop music publisher and music promotions company Hashim Music, an electro and Hip Hop music publisher and member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) since 1985, and a music publisher of legendary songwriter and music producer Jerry Calliste Jr aka performing and recording artist Hashim. Announces Hashim will not perform the Street Sounds 30 year anniversary 2012 event in London, England.

During November 2011 Morgan Khan of Street Sounds messaged and phoned Calliste Jr and asked if he would be interested in performing the Street Sounds 30 year anniversary event originally considered for early 2012.

What a surprise it was to Calliste Jr. Based on his recollection he was not invited to perform the Street Sounds U.K. Fresh 86 Reunion event, held in the U.K. in 2011. Although his act Electro Hip Hop artist Hashim performed two shows at the original event in 1986, and created the theme song titled “U.K. Fresh ‘86 Anthem” by Hashim featuring M.C. Devon.

Calliste Jr., says “I was in touch with different artists who were invited and we waited to see how the line up panned out. We thought, since the Electro and Hip Hop fans in the U.K. usually request us to perform, and we are still active in the music business and in the process of producing new music, we would enter into talks with Khan and Street Sounds. The invite never came.”

Calliste Jr. was already in the process of planning a U.K. multi-city promotional tour (not live performances) and possibly a London based live performance event to cap off his multi-city promotional tour in 2011. Calliste Jr. called it off due to rioting in London and other cities in England.

Fast forward to 2012, Calliste Jr. and Mr. Khan discussed the Street Sounds 30 year anniversary live performance opportunity. Calliste Jr. says, “A verbal offer was given by Khan to me and I countered but neither side was able to agree and solidify a deal.”

Calliste Jr. informs his fans that due to the unfortunate turn of events and recent chatter and circumstances surrounding the 30 year anniversary, Calliste Jr. has decided if asked again he will not perform the Street Sounds event. In addition Calliste Jr states he will not license any new music to Street Sounds moving forward.

On June 29, 2012 Hashim Music and Calliste Jr. formally messaged Mr. Khan and Street Sounds that Hashim Music and Calliste Jr. will no longer communicate or do business with Mr. Khan or his company. Calliste Jr. says, “Business is business and people have the right to decide how they want to proceed in business and with their events.” “People and businesses evolve. We are in the process of establishing a U.K. presence for Hashim Music and our independent music label group.” He adds, “Keeping the fans in mind and the forefront of our objectives, we will post a press release announcing updates to our “Hashim Music presents…A Wicked Electro & Hip Hop U.K. Event 2012” featuring various Electro & Hip Hop artists.
