Multi-platinum producer, instrumentalist and recording artist Dame Grease  has long been known as a maverick in the music world. His raw and infectious sound defies convention and has helped to establish the careers of Hip Hop legends such as DMX, The LOX, and Swizz Beatz. The same ear that helped to build the success of those talents has now been tuned toward The Auto-Tunes, a new and innovative virtual Hip Hop group that Dame Grease has signed to his Vacant Lot imprint.

Following in the aftermath of the release of Hip Hop great Jay-Z’s controversial “Death of Auto-tune” record, the new group aims to re-establish a trend of good music through animated features and music videos.  “Blanket Jackson”, the leader of The Auto-Tunes, stated that “[we] knew to make this project work that we would need a producer with a combination of the right talent, background and leadership to bring us together, and Grease was that producer. We’re lucky to be able to be the next group that he will bring that level of success to.

Grease, whose music has sold over 50 million records worldwide, originally broke out as the producer for The LOX’s “We’ll Always Love Big Poppa” and DMX’s smash single “Get At Me Dog.” As someone who has experienced the rewards of Hip Hop, Grease still displays the same enthusiasm as when he entered the business over 10 years ago, stating “When I met Blanket we connected on a musical level and I could see he has the same focus on good music that I’ve carried with me throughout my career.”

The first single from The Auto-Tunes is entitled “Get It Off” . The single will be released exclusively on Dame Grease’s website http://www.damegrease.ning.com.

“Goon Music 2.Owww” will also feature appearances by Akon’s artist French Montana, Max B, Sheek Louch, Freeway, Jae Millz, and the Clipse over tracks produced by Grease.
