Goldbar NYC played host last night to the official launch event for AsherRothMusic.com. Manning the decks were Mr. Roth himself, DJ Wreckineyez, and producer David Appleton, dropping everything from hip-hop classics like MC Lyte’s “Paper Thin” to current radio favorites like B.O.B.’s “Nothin’ On You”. The tables and bar tops were decorated with hard copies of the Roth/Wreckineyez collab Seared Foie Gras With Quince & Cranberry, the West Chester native’s latest mixtape enjoyable by any palette – foie gras isn’t so bad either (looking over my shoulder for PETA).
With graffiti and gold skulls adorning the walls of the swanky lounge in NYC’s Lolita section, it was a celebration amongst friends and fans – an extremely fun-loving crowd if I may say so myself. Oh yeah the website – Asher Roth Music is chock full of the usual music-bio-tour-photos-merch info found on most artist’s websites. However, it is the site design that will keep you coming back. I was blown away at the level of web design savvy used in creation of AsherRothMusic.com. Every photo you see as the background on the website appeared via a little white card. As Asher puts it, “Every time I take a photo with it, some nifty technology tracks the card and launches the entire site right off of its surface” – I was sold. Also be sure to peruse the Asher Roth Music blog (look for the owl), a destination for music and lifestyle seen from the eyes of Asher and his entire team.
