Altavoz welcomes label 71 North Entertainment and its artist Big Mucci Dat 71 North Boi, one of the most promising artists to emerge in the Dance/Pop/ Rap scene in many years. The label signed with Altavoz for worldwide physical and digital distribution, with a new release coming out in early 2014.
Says Altavoz CEO Nelson Jacobsen, “Big Mucci has tremendous potential. His line-dance release “The Biker’s Shuffle” has gained over 10 million views on YouTube and has reached up to 6 million listeners across top radio stations in 26 major cities without any radio campaigning. The Biker’s Shuffle is spreading fast up the music charts in all regions in the U.S. We look forward to working with Big Mucci on his upcoming releases.”
Mark Wynn, better known by his stage name Big Mucci Dat 71 North Boi, is known as “The International King of Line-Dance Music”. After serving his country in the U.S Marine Corps, he became a founding member of 71 North, one of the hottest Rap/Dance groups to come out of Cleveland, Ohio. In 2002, Big Mucci landed a recording deal with Critical Music/Warlock Records after releasing popular club hits “The Cleveland Shuffle” and “Let Me C Dat Boodie Bounce”. When Critical Music folded in 2004, Big Mucci released numerous singles and by 2009 released his first self-titled solo album BIG MUCCI DAT 71 NORTH BOI with the widely popular hit “The Biker’s Shuffle,” which has gained national and international success. As proof of its growing popularity, Microsoft Corporation XBOX MUSIC has obtained a compulsory license for the song.
