Secure digital media management company YANGAROO Inc. has announced a partnership with Los Angeles-based RAMP (Radio and Music Pros), a prominent music industry trade publication. This alliance will now provide the industry in the U.S. expanded access to YANGAROO’s Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) platform to deliver music to radio, and other destinations as well as the ability to deliver music videos to all major national and regional television broadcasters in North America. This partnership will also provide DMDS with the most comprehensive radio lists available, setting a new standard for radio distribution of promotional music.
Thanks to the targeted reach of RAMP, which is read daily by thousands of leading radio programmers, on-air personalities, record label executives, artists, artist managers and other influential industry professionals, the publication will provide a prominently placed banner and a link that will provide simple, direct access to DMDS, thus allowing independent labels and artists as well as major labels the ability to easily upload music tracks, albums and music videos for delivery to broadcasters all over North America.
This service will also provide the industry’s most comprehensive and current radio lists, as well as delivery of HD music videos to all major music video broadcasters including MTV/VH1, Music Choice, Fuse, CMT, BET, REVOLT, GAC, Much Music, MTV Canada, AUX and MusiquePlus.
Kevin Carter, co-founder/Sr. Editor of RAMP, remarked, “We are excited to embark on this strategic venture with the team at DMDS. The reason we all got into this business in the first place was the music – and thanks to this new partnership, the concept of music is once again at the forefront of what we do. Our loyal readers will now be able to enjoy their daily morning serving of industry news and be just one simple click away from sharing their music and videos with the world.”
“RAMP has been the place to go for the latest breaking news relating to the music industry and we’re excited to partner with them to expand the industry awareness and access to our DMDS service,” said Cliff Hunt, Vice-Chairman and COO, YANGAROO Inc. “These guys are seasoned pros, and it’s a pleasure to work with people who understand that it’s all about the music and getting it to the people.”
