Theo Martins’ “Channel Surfin” mixtape was a success last month. Tons of linkage online, plenty of people aware of its release, folks sharing it. I couldn’t be happier (unless a big pile of money fell out of the sky, but that’s a whole nother story). It was the perfect lead-in to SXSW, where Theo rocked shows solo and with UNI, Pac Div and a bunch of others. Timing really is everything, and hey, that was pretty strategic!

Theo recently partnered with DJBooth.net, and the site will release his long-awaited EP “You Can’t Do That On Television” this month. The project is a collaboration with upcoming Ohio-based producer $port, and the name takes its cue from the Canadian sketch comedy television program, which eventually became a Nickelodeon staple in the early 90s. The sound is futuristic, but inspired by that era. The first leak song from the EP is “Kirby’s Airwalk.”

Not to get into all the behind the scenes, but this was a project that was supposed to drop last year. The anticipation for it was high and a few labels stepped in offering to put it out. Sometimes the bigger things get, the more complicated they turn out to be, and that’s what happened with “You Can’t Do That On Television.” In the end, it made more sense to deal with less red tape and release it this way. It’s the easiest way to get it to the folks who matter most, the people.
