DJ Hipnotik eagerly added, "Arizona artists talk about the lack of support they receive in Arizona. Perhaps this mixtape will ignite a change in thinking and generate support for the artists by creating a better distribution channel, with global media support."
Apparently, Wutz Hood is the only Phoenix radio station to host a local mixtape. Arizona mixtapes are typically hosted by artists, producers, or radio station ‘DJs,’ but not directly by a radio station. The anticipation of this project is great, and is a long time coming. Arizona artists already had their share of disappointed album sales. They hope this mixtape will shine a much needed light on their music projects. "Make no mistake. Producing the project is only half the work. Everyone involved in this project will need to commit 100%, to making this the most successful mixtape ever produced," DJ Hipnotik exclaimed. "The artists will be able to reach new markets that were once unobtainable."
DJ Hipnotik did reveal there will be a call for submissions this Spring. A website will be created to provide the artists with submission guidelines and details.
