Artist Profile: Adrian Hardy

DJ and jet-setter Adrian Hardy spent some time talking to us at Elevate Sound Studios (where he is in the middle of collaborating with our own Ben Arsenal) about his work, favorite experiences, and what he enjoys about working with Worldtown. (Fun fact: I'm standing on about six inches of wood to look like a normal-sized person next to Adrian. Hashtag Shorty.)

Catch what will surely be a fantastic set from Adrian Hardy this Friday at our 3-Year Anniversary party!

Artist Profile: Mr. Manic

Our good friend Mr. Manic was kind enough to tell us his early influences, what he digs about the European music scene, and why he likes experimenting with global sounds.

The psychedelic Mr. Manic is a part of our incredible line-up of DJs performing this Friday at our 3-Year Anniversary party.

Glad to Meet You

Intern Clarissa My name’s Clarissa and I’m one of Worldtown's new interns!

In the short time that I’ve been working with Worldtown, it's undoubtedly been a thrilling time in the company’s career. They produced a music video, secured a partnership with the YMCA, threw a wonderful Valentine’s Day party, remixed one of my favorite songs, will open for a major Samba act in Philly, and will celebrate their 3rd birthday in the coming weeks.

As blogger, Instagrammer, Facebooker, photographer, and Tweeter, I want to bring everyone to the attention of Worldtown through words and images that are hopefully true to the company's vibe. Worldtown brings cultural inclusivity into their music and lets the listener travel the world through sound. It’s an experience I want everyone to enjoy.

I hope you’ll all join me as I discover more of Worldtown’s sound and watch their talent unfold!

Get Lucid! Dream Activist PA Coalition

We had an awesome time at Get Lucid! The Activist Dance Party Fundraiser. The glowing atmosphere, the spoken word by poet Slangston Hughes, and voluminous sounds of DJ OffBeet, DJ DeadKat, DJ Marvin and our resident Ben Arsenal had the place in an uproar in support of the cause. If you were lucky, you also caught the live performances by Danza Azteca and Galvanize. Thanks to all of our staff for fueling the party with their colossal energy, and all of our new party folk! All proceeds from the event went to the Dream Activist PA. Continue to support the cause!

Stay Tuned...
