Definition Music at it’s heart, is an independent record label. However, we see ourselves as a platform for a growing collective of artists to present music, art & film that explores, connects, transcends and stands for something greater.
Definition originated in the dorm rooms of the University of Cincinnati in 2002 as a hip-hop group comprised of TimGmeiner & Dean Hummons, Jr (under the artist names Ill Poetic & Zone). After releasing an EP, the duo went on to release solo material under the “label” name Definition Music. After bringing in partner Hunter Turner, Definition Music LLC officially formed in 2009 as a more organized platform to release material. Partnering with VoiceOfRzn Management & Consulting, Definition Music embraced the theory that development of an artist’s unique voice and sound was a mandatory first step in the artist’s career. This hands on approach has allowed Definition Music to assist VoiceOfRzn in the artist developement process; transitioning projects from raw ideas to professional pieces of work that would then be provided outlets of distribution to a mass audience. Though loosely described as a label, Definition Music might be better described as a process. The early years of our imprint allowed Definition Music to refine it’s process with it’s flagship artists; Ill Poetic, Zone and Huntorprey. This successful refinement has recently allowed us to widened our scope, including exciting new artists across multiple genres, and is committed to becoming a home for creative and driven talent to release their art.
In 2012, Definition Music collaborated with VoiceOfRzn to sign a digital distribution deal, allowing for worldwide distribution of the platform’s current roster, and opening the doors for new artists of all genres to be exposed. In 2016, we’re proud to announce the re-launch of Definition Music as a growing multi-media platform. Though rooted in music releases, we will be expanding into other avenues, such as short film and beyond. We’re excited to see what Definition Music can grow into in the coming years and hope you stick around for the ride.
