Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 7, 2008
IRIS Distribution, a leading independent music digital distribution and marketing company, and Myxer, one of the Internet's top mobile aggregators with over 4.5 million users, have entered into a partnership to give a mobile voice to over 5,000 of the nation's top Indie artists. Through the partnership Myxer will also be able to provide consumers with access to the newest and brightest Indie mobile content, as well as their unsurpassed existing collection of Indie content on http://www.myxer.com.
IRIS's family of top independent record labels will benefit from the partnership by being able to provide their artists with the instant ability to offer customized ringtones, wallpapers, shortcode promotions and more. Myxer will also offer embeddable widgets, dedicated mobile artists' stores accessible from mobile browsers, featured artist spotlights, and mobile fan clubs.
As part of the launch of the IRIS artists on Myxer, the popular band BOOT CAMP CLIK is offering a free ringtone to fans, which can be downloaded by texting "BUBBLIN" to 69937 (MYXER).
"Myxer started out three years ago to create a community for Indie bands to reach their mobile fans, as Indie labels and artists have traditionally been shut out of the fast-growing mobile content business," said Myk Willis, CTO and founder, Myxer. "We're really pleased to announce our partnership today with IRIS, a recognized leader in the Indie music world. With Myxer's unique technology and mobile community, we're able to almost instantaneously create 50,000 ringtones and 5,000 mobile storefronts for IRIS's artists."

Their innovative business model, which offers such a great sales and marketing channel, will benefit not only our own distributed labels but also our consumer marketing clients as well."
