Yangaroo, a leading secure digital media distribution company, has signed deals with San Francisco based IRIS Distribution, and Los Angeles based A&R Select to provide their member artists and labels with digital distribution of their music to radio and other destinations throughout the US and Canada using Yangaroo’s patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS). IRIS Distribution currently represents 5,000 independent artists and labels and A&R Select has worked with more than 2,000 artists and bands since its founding in 2006.
IRIS Distribution’s member artists and labels will have access to Yangaroo’s newly launched DMDSDirect, which allows them to choose a package of key stations in a given radio format or genre, pay by credit card, and have their music distributed both quickly and digitally to radio stations throughout the United States. A&R Select’s artists and bands will be able to use DMDS to digitally and securely distribute their music and promotional materials throughout North America in the same manner as major record labels using DMDS. Artists, bands and labels at both IRIS Distribution and A&R Select can also choose a more “hands-on” approach where the independent aggregators will handle much of the process on their behalf. DMDS currently reaches over 1,200 US college destinations and has plans to add more to benefit the growing indie music market.
