Lacy’s new venture Earl Hitz Records is inspired by the culture of dancing at The Paradise Garage, in NYC. As a culture curator of performance & music for the world he wanted to create a new outlet to cater to this new digital experience. Earl Hitz Records is a NYC label created to embrace the sounds of house, dance, electronic pop, and funk music.
Affluent Records CEO Oscar Sanchez says, “Lacy has a great vision, when we sat down and spoke, I was so impressed with his passion to create in 2016 a NEW DIGITAL PARADISE GARAGE EXPERIENCE.” After tossing ideas back and forth it was clear Lacy had the talent, business, and a clear understanding of his brand for his fan base. This is why I gave him the opportunity to create this new outlet under the Affluent brand. I believe in his success.”
