DJN Project in Second Life

Sunday, 21 June 2009

DJN Project, a duo located in NYC is composed by Rick "Galactik" Wilkinson and Ruben "Swift" Vidal.

In 2005 they met through mutual friend Doug Brown, who was the assistant to music mogul Johnny Wright at the time.

Rick G, then based in Orlando, decided to move to New York where the songwriting industry was booming.

Swift's love for house started at Club Shelter, where he recalls experiencing the beautiful people and the great sound of soulful house.
At the same time Swift worked with Jay-Z, DJ Green Lantern, Eminem, Busta Rhymes and many other artists with engineering, assisting and marketing.

Doug set up a meeting with Rick G and Swift. After meeting, they soon after created DJN Project. Both were into making r&b music at the time, but both were also busy and had no time to make music.

2006 - 2007, Rick G and Swift traded song ideas back and forth most of the year, while Swift was on the road with Justin Timberlake, Fergie and RBD as a Hype Man. When Swift arrived home from his journey, DJN Project was able to get together and record all of thier music.
DJN Project made their first house album in November 2007 entitled "Everlasting". At the start, Rick G nor Swift knew any DJ's or ANYBODY in the dance genre. Swift was in hip-hop, and Rick G was in r&b.

"Feel For You" was released in March 2008.

Because of the noise that "Feel For You" was making, DJN Project was invited to perform the single live at Winter Music Conference 2008. After WMC 2008, the DJN Project was set to roll with collaborations locked down with Kenny Bobien, Arnold Jarvis, and Louie Vega.

DJN Project has alot in store for dance music. They're introducing a new genre of house called HIP HOP HOUSE with the help of Busta Rhymes, Paul Wall, Juelz Santana, and others. This will take dance to a new plateau, where our kids can enjoy life music without drama.

This is DJN Project so far.
Recently Rick G and Swift contacted me and my friend Swina Allen because someone told them about Second Life and its awesome venues.

They decided to do a promotional tour in Second Life:both of them are convinced that the virtual platform has a great potential in order to give a worldwide visibility. Furthermore planning a tour in Second Life is really easy and cheap.

This magic virtual tour will start on june 22nd...I will keep you updated :)
We will see...
