Physical Copies Of Independent Powerhouse Sampler Hit The Streets!

Published: April 10, 2013 in Strange Music by


In an attempt to help fans fathom the massive amount of releases being put out by Strange Music this year, label CEO Travis O’ Guin commissioned the Independent Powerhouse Sampler, a compilation featuring tracks from every 2013 Strange Music release.

Aside from a surprising peek into Tech N9ne’s upcoming album Something Else, the sampler also contains tracks from Wrekonize, Rittz, Brotha Lynch Hung, ¡MAYDAY!, and more!

Not only is the sampler up for free download, but Travis just unveiled to HipHopDX recently that he printed 500,000 physical copies, which will also be given out for free on the tour with the same name!

In another F.T.I. move, Strange Music Street Teams across the nation have begun delivering physical copies of the Independent Powerhouse Samplers to establishments in every city they can hit!

We talked to Strange Music Leader Of Marketing and Street Promotions Aaron Bean about what he thought of the samplers, he had this to say:

These samplers truly are the best way to get the point across. It’s not like a poster or a flyer where you see it and you don’t really know what to expect. You can put this in your stereo immediately and know exactly what you’re going to get. We’re spreading these things literally EVERYWHERE – record stores, gas stations, restaurants…anywhere that’ll take ’em, so keep an eye out. And if you see a Strange Music vehicle riding around, flag us down! We’ve always got some on deck.

So if you can’t make a date on the tour, check around your city for copies of the sampler, and if you find them somewhere, take a picture and let us know! We’ll be compiling a list of places in each city that have copies in stock.

Until then, download a digital copy HERE.

    im in England and would LOVE to get me one of these 🙁


    I bought my son one of these he went to the show stood in line for two hours by the time he got up there they told him they closed will call 5-10 minutes ago and he would have to stand inline to get another 80 ticket. After I spent 170.oo on this one. He didn’t get to see the show and was very upset. It was bullshit and they are a freaken joke to steal 170.00 and not let the kid in. He has wanted to go for years now. He was so excited. what a bunch of total assholes for doing that to him. I hope they crash AND DIE……
