Las Vegas, NV (January 2011) – Swurvradio.com, one the world’s most popular internet radio stations has just added Canada’s mixtape guru @DJ Bankrupt, and his Mixtape Mailbox show to its all-star lineup. @swurvradio and @DJBankrupt are both trending topics on the powerful social network Twitter, as well as many of the more popular social sites.  DJ Bankrupt, a.k.a. Jason Hill, of Edmonton Alberta, Canada has made a huge splash with his unique method of marketing artists and projects using the Twitter network.  Swurvradio.com has led the internet radio market for more than six years and its brand is recognized in more than one hundred fifty-five countries worldwide.

Swurvradio.com has received multiple award nominations so far in 2011;  Nominated for the 2011 A&R Award from the United DJ Alliance, a coalition of some of the most influential DJ organizations in the United States; Nominated for 2011 SEA Award in the top Internet/Satellite Radio category (3rd nomination).  Swurvradio.com has been the leader in internet radio for more than six years and has distinguished itself as the first and only station to have a “Clean” rotation From 6am to 6pm as well as “Uncut” from 6pm to 6am.  Swurvradio is a fully licensed ASCAP, BMI, SESAC and Sound Exchange Internet Radio Station as well as a featured station on ITunes; Nokia; and a four-time “Editor’s Pick” on Microsoft’s, “Windows Media” internet radio channel.

Serving as the home for critically acclaimed DJ’s and legendary personalities, the SWURVRADIO DJ’s convene to identify and support the music industry’s next mega-star.

DJ Bankrupt is the manifestation of the saying, “necessity is the mother of all invention”! Known to his family as Jason Hill, this master of mix tape creation and marketing was on the verge of actual bankruptcy when an artist named JQ, from Burbetto Productions, suggested he turn his extraordinary talents to the realm of music promotion and mixtape production. Investing some of his waning financial resources into the necessary equipment needed to get started and pulling together some of his contacts from the music world, Hill transformed himself into the now highly sought after persona of “DJ Bankrupt” and began the process of creating one of the most unique and influential promotional networks in independent music history.

Canada’s DJ Bankrupt, who became known as the “Canadian Connection” in urban music circles, specializes in helping unsigned artists and independent record labels and has created one of the most influential urban music networks on the web over the past 2 years. His 12,000 + followers on twitter are mostly working DJ’s and artists which create a formidable movement once this personality gets behind a project. Utilizing social media and internet marketing strategies, DJ Bankrupt and his network cover just about every possible avenue for an artist to promote their music and gain worldwide market share. His efforts on behalf of indie artists have now begun to draw the attention of major artists and their labels looking to take advantage of the groundwork he has laid in creating this aggressive and effective marketing strategy which combines social media, blogs and live video broadcast outlets and uniquely branded email blasts to his opt-in subscribers.

DJ Bankrupt’s Swurvradio.com version of Mixtape Mailbox is set to launch Saturday February 12, 2011 at 10pm PST and will continue with its concentration on exposing independent artists and their projects to Swurvradio’s international audience of more than 117,000 users. 

Merging DJ Bankrupt’s loyal follower’s with the Swurvradio audience and platform, artists in the Mixtape Mailbox rotation, gain a unique opportunity to increase their exposure and market share via an established internet-radio platform that has proven its reach and distinguished itself as a recognized world wide leader and innovator in the radio industry, whether internet-radio or terrestrial.

Second home to many of the radio industry’s major market DJ’s, Swurvradio, looks to continue its leadership role in the internet market and welcome’s it newest member DJ Bankrupt and the Mixtape Mailbox Show to the Swurvradio Family in 2011.
