We are proud to announce today, the re-launch of Threatt Muzik, a Christ centered music company based out of Fresno, California. Threatt Muzik is headed by long time friends, music associates and brothers in Christ, Jacques “Tha GIM” Guidry, Jared “Maestro” Elston and Jepahl White.
Thus far, Threatt Muzik has served as home to Christian rap artist Tha GIM (pronounced; the jim, meaning; the God In Me). Jacques, aka Tha GIM, also founded and ran the company, releasing three full length albums, with the last being This Iz My Life, distributed nationwide through Infinity/Central South Distribution in 2008. All three come together combining experience in both the general and Christian music industry in the creative, marketing, promotion, management, administration and distribution fields.
Threatt Muzik will also be merging as the parent company to SOG Productions, a reputable recording studio and production company based in Fresno & Atlanta, GA that has been headed by partner Jared Elston, which will serve as the label’s recording home. Threatt Muzik is in the process of bringing together a diverse team of artists and sounds ranging from Christian Contemporary, R&P (rhythm & praise), Urban Contemporary, Jazz, Gospel, Hip Hop and Soul. The newly reformed label’s first album release will be Supreme from Tha GIM, with the first single “A New Day” being made available worldwide on 8/23/11, through iTunes and Amazon.
Of the re-launch the three new partners all agree, stating that “…we’re starting off small and from ground level, but this is exciting for all of us as like minded brothers in the Lord who know music and the business, but all believe in an un-orthodox, un-compromising approach to the industry of music where Christ is Lord and the Holy Spirit is the ultimate guide, coming together as mere tools and instruments to glorify God with our respective gifts and musical talents.”
