RED is the new black! official.fm partners with RED DistributionJune 17th, 2011 | official.fm
Today we are glad to announce our partnership with RED, the award-winning distribution division of Sony Music Entertainment.
At official.fm we work with content owners and music professionals to create real solutions. To get RED on board, we tailor-made a special set of tools especially for users with huge catalogues and various labels to manage. Over the course of the summer (we expect mid-August) this solution will be made available to all official.fm users!
To give you an idea of the size of RED’s catalogue, their distributed labels include ATO, CBS, Cirque Du Soleil, Eleven Seven Music, Fader Label, Fat Possum, Glassnote, Megaforce, Nacional, New West, Razor & Tie, Rocket Science Ventures, Thirty Tigers and many other top independent labels. Sony Music Entertainment’s acquisition of IODA, the premiere independent digital distributor, has expanded RED’s global reach.
This is another reason why we’re so excited: together with our users, official.fm is building a new world of music!
We are very proud to provide a home for the great content RED distributes. RED is launching the partnership with the integration of our technology to showcase the new bands of Bret Hinds (of Mastodon) on Rocket Science Ventures: West End Motel and Friend Without a Face (the latter is a free download!).
Check out our player on their specially branded page for this showcase.
Today we roll out the red carpet: welcome aboard RED!
