Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Tacoma-based independent artist Fred Diezil, a member of the Real Life Click and represented by Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes was recently selected as the winner of platinum-recording artist MIMS’ “Open Bars” sales competition. A collaboration between MIMS and Erik Mendelson—behind-the-scenes hip hop guru and producer—“Open Bars” asked artists to record a verse or submit a beat under a MIMS accapella track created especially for the contest. Of thousands of submissions worldwide, Diezil’s song “Winter’s My Summer” – MIMS ft. Gudda Gudda and Fred Diezil (Fred Diezil Remix) was selected for iTunes and Amazon.com placement by MIMS and his team. Once selected, Diezil competed with other chosen artists to try to sell the most copies of their single online. As the top seller, Diezil was awarded a meeting with a major record label of his choosing.
Fred Diezil has already begun to make an impact on the Internet hip hop scene, with over 4 million impressions (downloads, views, and plays) and a spot on over 100 mixtapes. Having performed on many stages and opened for major artists such as Twista, E-40, Ying Yang Twins, Too $hort, Devin the Dude, and YG, Fred Diezil has built quite the following in the Pacific Northwest. Backed by Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes, the company that puts out the most downloaded mixtape series in the world (headed by CEO Kyle “Lil Fats” and President Nick Hiersche), Diezil certainly doesn’t do it alone. And though Coast 2 Coast helps many artists reach individual goals in the industry, the company is currently only representing the Real Life Click (which includes Fred Diezil, Miz, Ang P & producer Nemisis), along with artists iLLA and Sha Stimuli. As the winner of this competition, Diezil has the opportunity to make big things happen for the hip hop scene in Washington state and throughout the Northwest.
“Winter’s My Summer” – MIMS ft. Gudda Gudda and Fred Diezil is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.com. For more information about Fred Diezil, visit him on Facebook, at Twitter.com/FredDiezil , and on Jango radio at http://www.jango.com/music/Fred+Diezil
