July 3, 2014 at 7:59 AM (PT)
SPINNUP, the new digital platform for unsigned artists, is coming to the U.K. in partnership with ISLAND RECORDS. The U.K. roll-out comes as SPINNUP has its first #1 success -- 24-year-old rap/pop artist ALBIN who topped both the SPOTIFY and iTUNES charts in his native SWEDEN last week with his SUMMER hit ‘Din Soldat’.
Launched last year by UNIVERSAL MUSIC SWEDEN in collaboration with X5 MUSIC GROUP, SPINNUP supports unsigned artists from anywhere in the world who want to release their music and get discovered. SPINNUP distributes tracks globally via X5 on major platforms such as SPOTIFY, iTUNES, AMAZON, GOOGLE PLAY, DEEZER, RHAPSODY and WiMP and uniquely has a network of scouts with a direct line into UNIVERSAL MUSIC’s A&R teams.
ISLAND Dir./Digital GLENN COOPER said, “Digital distribution is a key stepping stone in the career of any unsigned artist and SPINNUP provides the perfect ecosystem to help them get their music to market. ISLAND RECORDS has consistently broken ground in both the digital and A&R space; SPINNUP sits alongside our existing crowdfunding platform www.FanRepublic.co.uk and both deliver unique, innovative opportunities to discover and nurture new acts.”
