Edjacated Phools are proud to announce that the band has signed a digital distribution agreement with Raised Fist Records. As part of the two-year deal, Raised Fist records will have exclusive worldwide rights to digitally distribute music recorded by Edjacated Phools. The partnership will commence with the digital release of the band’s first full-length album, Check The Vibes, in September 2017.
The band is excited to take advantage of the opportunities that working with Raised Fist Records will create. In addition to having the music of Edjacated Phools commercially available on a variety of digital platforms - including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music and several other channels - the band looks forward to expanding awareness through increased publicity and by getting in front of new live audiences across the United States.
Raised Fist Records was founded by Jeff Pliskin in 2016. Headquartered in New York City, Raised Fist Records is home to artists that showcase reggae, ska, and classic hip-hop sounds. Pliskin also founded Raised Fist Propaganda - a company that specializes in photography, video production, apparel and artist promotion - in 2006. His photography and music video clients include Slightly Stoopid, Redman, Method Man, G. Love & Special Sauce, Fortunate Youth and Senator Bernie Sanders, among many others.
The Edjacated Phools debut album Check The Vibes was recorded and mixed by Jim Fox (at Lion and Fox Recording Studios in College Park, MD) and Kyle Ryman (at Sheffield Studios in Phoenix, MD). The LP was mastered by Fox at Lion and Fox Recording Studios.
