UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP DISTRIBUTION has made a strategic investment in INGROOVES. The announcement was made today by UMGD Pres./CEO JIM URIE and INGROOVES CEO ROBB MCDANIELS.
"UNIVERSAL is committed to exploring new ways to expand the availability of our artists' music online, while offering our partner labels the widest array of choices possible in how and where they make their music available," stated URIE. "And after much research, we identified INGROOVES as the most successful and comprehensive second generation digital distribution company in the market. Through this venture, we will provide our partners with access to the only flexible digital distribution system that allows for innovative structures to maximize their freedom, the connection of the artists' music to fans, and sales."
