iLike Would Like to Work With TuneCore

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff


If you like iLike, you might like them even more now that they've become empowered to help musicians get their music in front of more people. They've just announced a deal to work with TuneCore, combing their services to let bands easily push their music out to sites like Facebook, hi5, Orkut, Bebo and Rhapsody. Artist get paid whenever someone buys or streams their music.

 

iLike's self-described "social music discovery service" will start working with the distribution platform TuneCore to provide a one-stop service for bands to license, distribute, and promote their music. They've worked in the past with online retailers like Amazon MP3 and iTunes (among others), and now they'll work with iLike to provide one more outlet to musicians.

 

This essentially lets more ambitious artists create their own sort of label.

 

"This relationship is the first time that music discovery, promotion and sharing is directly connected to distribution outside of a traditional label," said Jeff Price, founder and CEO of TuneCore.
