JOLLY ROGER - Sound of Pirates is the name of the new label launched by Nicola Fasano
and Steve Forest, also known as Fish & Chips. After years of fantastic productions , remixes
and international collaborations, that led the talented duo to be among the most sought after,
on a worldwide basis, the need to grow and enrich their own experiences in the music
business, led to the launch of this new entity. To undertake this new adventure, the Jolly
Roger label decided to rely on one of the most well-established companies such as Do It
Yourself Music Group.
The Agreement is basically based on DIY managing all of the Jolly Roger products through
promotion, marketing, international licensing and publishing, while the digital distribution is
through Made In Etaly, a digital structure of which DIY is part of.
The first project to be released out of this collaboration will be “75 Brazil Street”, directly
delivered from the TOP 100 sales of Beatport (highlighting an amazing #1). The “75 Brazil
Street" track contains a replayed sample of Chicago’s "Street Player", better known among
the younger people and the dance community for being the core used by The Bucketheads on
their smash hit "The Bomb (these sounds fall into my mind)".
“75, Brazil Street” has become one of the major dance hits in 2008, recently entered the
Billboard Latin Chart and inspired the new Pitbull single “Calle Ocho”
A feature on Nicola Fasano has also been published by Billboard.
Jolly Roger products have been licensed basically to all of the major dance labels worldwide
and these include: Kontor and Unlimited (GSA), Happy Music and Pool E Music (France), Hit!
