Local producers, Mad Melody Records, are hosting a party to celebrate the release of their first album.

Follow Us Through the Madness is set to release on Oct. 19 with the party being held at Voodoo’s in Penticton.

Follow us Though the Madness has been in the works since last spring and has proven to be a lengthy uphill process filled with re-recording and pushed deadlines. We are relieved that this project is in its final stage of production, and now we hold a professional album” said manager and co-owner of Mad Melody Records Harley Pyrozyk.

Joining will be the entire Mad Melody Records hip-hop crew: MC Bodhi (Robb O’Day), JDK Nonstop (Kyle Keebaugh), P-City (Pat Cassidy), Twojoints (Nathon Flewin), Toxik Emissionz (Seth Murray) and Jay-E (Jesse England). Mad Melody Records dubstep/ Drum and Bass DJ, Stepone (Ryan Alywin) from Noize.fm is servicing as the DJ during the hip-hop sets, plus he will be the final performer of the night.

The 14-track album features at least one song from every artist that is affiliated with Mad Melody Records, including featured tracks from Nanaimo hip-hop artist Sirreal, and Kelowna producer Ceald Fate. Every song is original compositions with the production of the album done by co-owner Robb O’Day, matched with a supreme quality of mixing and mastering done by certified audio engineer and final co-owner Kyle Keebaugh.

“We are proud that our first album from Mad Melody Records will have such an amazing quality,” said O’Day. “We set the bar high.”

The local record label has planned a few additional special surprises during the event. O’day will blow off the dust from his guitar and have an additional set under his rock band alias, Based in Space, being his first show since over a year and a half ago, he will be performing all newly recorded original rock/folk songs. Also, long time Mad Melody Records artist Jay-E (Jesse England) will be performing his final performance as Jay-E. England has been working hard these past months to create new music, a new brand and a new persona — all to go with his new name Know Value. The final surprise will not be released until one day before on the Oct. 18 and will feature a guest appearance from an old Penticton-based band and has been out of the scene for a couple years.

Voodoo’s, located at 67 Nanaimo Ave., will be opening the doors at 7 p.m. for the event with the first artist hitting the stage at 7:30 p.m. This is an all-ages show with the admission by donation. Follow Us Through the Madness will be available at the show for purchase and is available online. For more information visit www.madmelodyrecords.com.
