D-Block Records/KOCH Records Set to Release "D-Block CD/DVD Mixtape," a Brand-New CD/DVD Mixtape

The New Release Contains New Audio Material + Over 120 Minutes of Exclusive DVD Content

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 9, 2006 -- D-Block Records / KOCH Records announces the release of the "D-Block CD/DVD Mixtape," a new CD/DVD by one of New York's most respected cliques, D-Block.

A video for "Devine"/"Everything Ya Got" will be serviced shortly to all key National and local video networks. The video was directed by Dale Restighini (Juelz Santana, Cam'ron, DJ KaySlay).

The label D-Block was created by Sheek Louch with lifelong friends, Styles P and Jadakiss. J-Hood is the newest member to enter the fold. The first release on D-Block was Sheek Louch's 2003 debut album, "Walk Witt Me," which sold over 250,000 units.

Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss are members of The Lox, the Yonkers-based group who were a backbone of Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy label. Hired as writers, the trio wrote and performed on Comb's "It's All About the Benjamins," Mase's "24 Hrs. to Live," the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Last Day," Mary J. Blige's "Can't Get You Off My Mind," and many others.

The Lox released their debut album, "Money, Power & Respect" in 1998 -- it reached #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts. To date, The Lox has sold 1.7 million albums.

Sheek Louch released his debut album under the new partnership between D-Block Records and KOCH Records in 2005, titled "After Taxes," which debuted at #22 on the Billboard Top 200.
