Oxy Systems has announced that its phling! MusicLounge service has extended its relationship with EuropaMP3.com to enable music fans to listen, share and discover indie bands using their mobile phone and virally spread their favourites through the MusicLounge social networking environment. Oxy Systems says the phling! MusicLounge offers wireless subscribers the first fully integrated mobile music social networking service.
This new form of mobile music distribution enables up and coming bands to showcase their work to a growing network of music aficionados, who also use the MusicLounge to provide real-time wireless access to their own PC-based music, media collections and Internet Radio, as well as access to the music of their friends. phling! enables bands to promote their music, gigs, news and events directly to their fan base via their mobile phones.
With 2,000 artist members, EuropaMP3 is one of Europes leading catalogues of un-signed music talent. The opportunity for these bands and musicians the ability to virally spread their music via the mobile significantly enhances the platforms appeal.
The phling! MusicLounge service turns a subscribers mobile phone into much, much more than a basic music player, says EuropaMP3.coms Bernard Barut. Quite simply, phling! unlocks the potential of the mobile as a new promotion and distribution channel.
EuropaMP3.com recently announced its wikisik music widget service that enables bands and their fans to add songs to their own websites using the wikisik code. phling! helps bands to promote their music and drive fans to EuropaMP3.com to obtain the wikisik widgets.
phling! is the first fully integrated mobile music social networking service, says Oxy Systems President and CEO, Mike Krasner. Uniquely, phling! enables users to not only listen but share and discover music as well, all while they are on the move. Partnering with music sites like EuropaMP3.com offers our subscribers access to up and coming bands and ensures our community continues to grow.
