Radio stations across Ireland are invited to sign up on yangaroomusic.ie from today to receive future music releases via Yangaroo Music Ireland.
Supported by the music industry and the radio industry, the system is now live, and those registered will receive a number of releases before the service becomes broadly available to the music industry from September 2016.
President Michael D. Higgins introduces Yangaroo to Irish media with a beautiful speech on Irish music and creativity. Those already pre-registered will receive an email notification from which they can stream the speech, those registering post launch will have access to the speech in their library once logged in.
Working with the IBI, all independent radio stations are pre-registered, and Yangaroo Music now invites all other media including TV and blogs to join by signing up online.
The company states: “The way in which Irish media currently receive music from outside the three major record labels is haphazard and disorganised, which is time consuming and contributes to delayed decision-making or possibly airplay. With the introduction of Yangaroo Music, Irish media will receive music in a simplified, streamlined and organised manner.”
Yangaroo and IASCA CEO Sinéad Troy says, “I chose Yangaroo’s technology above all others as it is not only the best in the business, but easily highlights local music, as demonstrated in Canada via their Maple System. IASCA are the first to bring this technology to Europe and the only songwriters’ association to licence this technology to create a new service that will benefit both their members, the songwriters and artists of Ireland, and Irish media.
