What were the highlights of Worldtown’s third year?
BEN: Definitely the Halloween party.
OLUWAFEMI: The Halloween party was the most effort we ever put into a party. It was five months of work. It was the first time we had some solid investors and really big partners. Essentially, it was a big ass production.
We also incorporated and became an LLC! It took us two years and afterwards we were finally able to release music as an entity.
BEN: Worldtown Sound System coming together was also huge…
How does Worldtown Sound System, Worldtown’s 8-piece live band, fit in?
OLUWAFEMI: Worldtown Sound System coming together was a game changer. Worldtown morphed into something new. The party was the seed, then it grew into a movement. Now we have Worldtown Sound System, which is a band of artists with the same outlook on music. It’s new, fresh, and bangin’.
BEN: We’re kicking up the music factor and pushing barriers. We’re separating ourselves from the crowd. Who else has the resources, motivation, and mind-set to do what we’re doing?
What can we expect at the 3-year anniversary party?
OLUWAFEMI: We’re launching our record label, Worldtown Productions! We’ll also have a superbly sounding Worldtown Sound System, a line-up of polished acts, new merchandise, and new designs.
BEN: We’re coming out with a more refined presentation. We want to offer everyone a glimpse into the direction we’re headed.
