EMusic.com, the Internet’s most popular MP3 music service, today announced licensing and digital distribution agreements with six internationally-recognized independent record labels in a wide range of popular music genres: OM Records (Electronic/Hip-Hop), Olympia (Classical), JSP (Jazz/Blues/Soul), Minty Fresh (Alternative Pop/Children’s Music), Checkered Past (Roots/Americana) and Emperor Norton (Indie Pop). Starting today, EMusic members will be able to download hundreds of high-quality MP3s from the catalogs of these leading labels.
EMusic is now offering a free two-week trial to its digital music subscription service at http://www.emusic.com/subscription/. Designed for the avid music fan, EMusic allows members to download as much music as they desire from EMusic’s collection of over 200,000 MP3s for one low monthly price. EMusic members can easily burn their music to CDs and/or transfer it to popular portable MP3 devices, such as the SONICblue Rio, Apple iPod or Creative Nomad.
“EMusic fills a huge void for the many music fans who appreciate popular – but not necessarily mainstream – musical styles,” said Gene Hoffman, president and CEO of EMusic. “Our members will welcome the breadth and depth of these fantastic new label partners. They are a great addition to our MP3 service”
