SMC Recordings Partners With Full Throttle Music Store

SMC Capitalizes on Mobile Market Giving Fans Access via Android Phones

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  SMC Recordings Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMCE) Full Throttle Software and Music Store and SMC Recordings have recently partnered, to make their entire music catalog available on the Android mobile platform world-wide. This precedential partnership has allowed SMC to be the first music label in the world with its entire artist catalogue on all of the Android mobile phone devices. SMC Recordings' music will be conveniently accessible on all Android phones, Google Market and the Full Throttle web site.

Android is a mobile operating system that controls a mobile device, similar to an operating system such as Windows for a desktop computer. They are simpler, and deal more with the wireless versions of broadband and local connectivity, mobile multimedia formats, and different input methods. Still relatively new technology, Android phones became available to the public in late 2007. Early this year Google estimated that 60,000 Android phones are shipping a day, with their own first phone using the Android system. Major wireless providers such as T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T carry android phones, and they are available in many models from Samsung to Motorola.

Full Throttle, a software and music store application for Android phones, has a revolutionary and innovative design constructed to re-invent the way music is purchased and distributed. Full Throttle's goal is to equip individuals with the power to instantly buy and share music wherever they are.

With SMC's full catalogue on board, Full Throttle Music Store delivers additional worldwide exposure to their large roster of Bay Area hip-hop and other major internationally-recognized artists. "SMC artist's will gain visibility and convenient download access on all Android mobile phones," says Kieran Cox, Consultant Embedded Systems Engineer and Full Throttle CEO. "It's going to simplify the way music is acquired." 

"We constantly look to capitalize on all of the ways that we can gain exposure for our artists and get their music into the hands of their fans. We look to continue to cater and partner with specific markets such as Android's and stay at the forefront of our world's ever-changing technology," shared SMC CEO Ralph Tashjian.

Full Throttle Music Store and Software is available on all Android phones, Google Market and at http://openmarketandroid.com/. SMC Recording's music is available now through Full Throttle on all Android phones.
