Posted: July 12, 2009 by bigced in Hip Hop News/Press Releases

FADER Media, an extensive and authoritative group of music and lifestyle sites, has announced a new addition to its network: Suite903 (www.suite903.com). The new site is dedicated to exposing and supporting all aspects of Soul music and culture. Hennessy, the number one selling Cognac in the world, has signed on to be the site’s exclusive advertiser for its launch. Andy Cohn, VP and Group Publisher of The FADER Media made the announcement.

Suite903.com encompasses the full spectrum of Soul music. From the edges of the commercial mainstream to the rhythm of the underground, Suite903.com is the only destination online for Soul music. As an extension of the widely acclaimed Suite903 CD series created in 2001, Suite903.com spotlights exclusive DJ mixes, advance music, one-on-one artist video interviews, event coverage, and features. Previous DJs involved with Suite903 mixes include Beverly Bond, DJ Drama, Rich Medina, and DJ Spinna. Suite903.com is the voice for today’s sophisticated Soul music enthusiast. At launch, the site features a Suite903 TV interview with award-winning producer/songwriter Bryan-Michael Cox, a Q&A with Maxwell, and an exclusive DJ profile on Rich Medina, featuring the stream of his Suite903 mix with music from Jay Dee, Mos Def, Da Beatminerz, Jamiroquai, Masters At Work, Lady Alma and others. This, and much more, available now at Suite903.com.

“The reaction to the Suite903 CDs over the years has been phenomenal, and this online destination for the celebration of Soul was a natural progression,” said Cohn. “Our network of on-and-offline media outlets speaks to more than 3.5 million followers each month, and the addition of Suite903 introduces FADER Media to a wider audience. We are opening a door to a place online that was missing for Soul music and its fans.”

The curators of Suite903.com know all the latest in Soul and, through the years, have earned a reputation for consistently turning people on to undiscovered, new and emerging music. Forging ahead, the site will feature the bi-weekly Suite903 Podcast with guest DJ’s from around the country delivering subscribers the latest in Soul, exclusive in-studio performances, and interviews. And Suite903 TV brings exclusive interviews with featured artists in a high-end, beautiful setting.

“We are excited to partner with FADER Media on this new site,” said Andy Glaser, SVP of Hennessy Business. “Hennessy has a strong history with the Suite903 CD series and we share a common vision and audience with our Artistry program to feature new artists, and support diverse music and culture. Suite903.com and Hennessy are a great match!”
