It is now official the world’s largest retailer of independent music and the world’s second largest digital music retailer overall, with over 2 million tracks from more than 13,000 independent labels, has joined forces with RouteNote. Once RouteNote is launched all artists signed up will be able to opt-in to sell their music on eMusic. This is a great opportunity for our artists to distribute to a huge audience that loves to purchase all types of music.
eMusic is a subscription-based service that allows consumers to own, not rent their music, eMusic is the largest service to sell tracks in the popular MP3 formatâ€”the only digital music format that is compatible with all digital music devices, including the iPodÂ®. eMusic targets and successfully direct-markets to consumers who are interested in music outside the commercial mainstream, dramatically expanding the sale of catalogue typically known as “the long tail.” Since Dimensional Associates acquired eMusic in 2003, the company has more than tripled its subscriber base.
