The labels will collaborate on ways for IMEEM users to discover new music from their rosters, including artist-based sponsorships and marketing and promotion initiatives. BEGGARS GROUP and MATADOR will also feature imeem's embeddable music and video playlists across its artists' web sites.
"From the start, BEGGARS and MATADOR have been dedicated to finding great music and bringing it to fans around the world," BEGGARS GROUP Chairman/Founder MARTIN MILLS said. "IMEEM gives us new ways to connect our talented artists with millions of potential fans through word of mouth and social connections, and gives those fans new ways to express themselves using our artists' music and video. We're excited to be working with imeem."
"MATADOR and BEGGARS have nurtured some of the most creative and innovative indie artists of the past 30 years, and we're excited to make those artists' music available to the imeem community," IMEEM Chief Marketing Officer STEVE JANG said. "We're looking forward to working with such a legendary international label group to create a richer social music experience for our community."
