Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
“When we started Music Kickup in 2011, we wanted to re-envision how musicians can work, collaborate, sell music and build their careers in the 21st century,” Antti Silventoinen, CEO & Co-founder of Music Kickup says. “For us it was clear from the very beginning that this type of service should be free for the artists.”
Deezer’s Music Acquisition team comments: “Music Kickup is a real innovation for the industry. It provides a good alternative for musicians and, by getting their work heard on subscription services like Deezer, they’ll be able to reach new fans all over the world. The fact that Music Kickup offers free distribution for artists is a pioneering move and we’re proud to be part of its launch.”
With Musick Kickup, the artist’s music will usually be online in 48 hours. In iTunes the music may be live in less than 30 minutes, which for the first time enables sales during the same evening of artists live shows. The full product, launched in February 2014, will contain services for artists to advance their careers.
“Music Kickup focuses on how to really impact and advance careers – structure all parts into a cohesive product that just makes sense. We want to go to eleven,” explains Perttu Sutinen, COO & Co-founder of Music Kickup.
