During its 10 years at #1 in the Japanese Urban radio market, Joint One Radio on Japan’s INTERFM 76.1 has garnered the trust and respect of record labels, major recording artists and corporations seeking entrée for their products into the Asian market. Known as Japan’s “Official Urban Radio Legend”, Joint One Radio is the chosen launch vehicle for many exclusive product releases as well as the breaking ground for new music releases in Asia, by major and independent labels from across the world.

Dark Shadow Magazine says, “When it comes to music of this genre, Joint One Radio and Record Pool is the pipeline to all of Japan. When you think of where the heartbeat of American music is today, thoughts of Los Angeles or New York may cross your mind. At the very least, we may think that our radio stations should be playing the most current music in the industry. Think twice because most likely, these same songs were first aired on InterFM 76.1 Tokyo.”

Led by former Los Angeles radio spin doctor, DJ Joey Slick, Joint One Radio was recently selected as the sole launch vehicle of the Michael Jackson MOBILE “For the Children” cell phone in Japan, http://mobile-mj.com. Launched on 29 August 2010, Michael Jackson’s birthday, via the Joint One web site http://www.jointone.com.

Joint One, LLC, parent company of the Joint One Record Pool worldwide, launched J. Stillton Productions in 2007. Music productions and placement for artists from around the world have come from the J.Stillton studio in Japan. In 2009, Platinum Games of Japan recruited the Joint One Record Pool & J.Stillton to help create the Sega soundtrack for its Nintendo Wii debut of the revolutionary game known as, “MadWorld.” The mission is using Joint One’s position to bring quality artists and their music to light.

Joint One’s founder DJ Joey Slick, formerly part of a live mix show on Los Angeles’ Power 106 (KPWR 105.9) with the world renowned Baka Boyz on Friday Night Flavaz, was recruited away from Los Angeles to create and headline the premier urban radio show in all of Japan, Joint One Radio.

The revolutionary mix-show attracted the attention of sponsors in need of a new, powerful avenue of branding such as Charlie Trading Company with D.C.Shoes, Sports Authority, And 1, Docomo, Kirin, Daihatsu, Tower Records, Studio Ikspiari, Club Citta Kawasaki, @Nifty, Technics, Pioneer, Vestax, Sony Pictures, Tristone Japan, Fashion Memo on TV Tokyo, Cuervo Tequila, and close to every major and minor record label wanting to advertise with the new radio phenomenon. Joey Slick was inducted into the West Coast Hip Hop Hall of Fame by its founder Alonzo “The Grandmaster” Williams, of World Class Wreckin’ Cru fame for efforts on playing and presenting quality Hip Hop to the Japanese market.
