To kick-off the partnership, a WeMix channel with profiles and ringtones of top WeMix artists will launch on Phonezoo.com. The WeMix/Phonezoo channel will provide further opportunity for dedicated musicians and artists who utilize all available avenues to further expose their music, "I am very excited about being included in this promotion, says indie Hip Hop artist and top WeMix artist, Phokuz." "This is a great opportunity to grow my fan base and expose my music to a wider audience." The channel is also launching a contest where the winning artist will win the chance to meet Ludacris.
