NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 22, 2010) - Encounter Technologies, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: ENTI), specializing in social media, video technology and online entertainment web solutions, charms music enthusiasts with the Exclusive, New Interactive Music Video Contest for Rapper Extraordinaire Gorilla Zoe launching tonight on MusicMatrix.com. The hip hop superstar lures fans with a haunting performance and unique opportunity to create and edit a video for his enticing single, "Vampire."

One of the most prolific rappers today, Gorilla Zoe had notable collaborations with Yung-Joc on "Coffee Shop" and "Bottle Poppin," and released two successful albums, "Welcome to the Zoo" and "Don't Feed Da Animals." The official MusicMatrix contest launch coincides with his highly anticipated EP release, "I Am Atlanta 3" presented by Block Entertainment / E1/ Atlantic Records available for download on iTunes which provides additional buzz and exposure. Zoe brings a global following to MusicMatrix with 12,737,287 profile views and 166,517 friends on MySpace and 134,463 "People Like This" on Facebook.

"Gorilla Zoe's 'Vampire' is the third of four exclusive, interactive music video contests launching this month on MusicMatrix.com," stated Anthony DiBiase, CEO Encounter Technologies. "The unique video content and creative contests establish MusicMatrix as the premier online destination for video editors, music enthusiasts and aspiring artists alike. The site fills a void and provides an expressive platform for their creative visions."

MusicMatrix allows members to seamlessly upload, edit, and promote music video content with groundbreaking user-friendly editing tools.

To provide the ultimate editing experience, the MusicMatrix team shot custom video footage for Gorilla Zoe in Atlanta and New York and launched an Exclusive, "Director's Cut" video earlier this month available for Premium Members. Site visitors can sign up as "Advanced" or "Master" Members to participate in editing and creating their own "Vampire" video using the online-editor, special effects and exclusive video clips. MusicMatrix's progressive technology allows users to effortlessly combine multiple layers of video and audio to create custom music videos appealing to the novice as much as to the expert. Winning videos are selected by an All-Star Panel of Judges and awarded prize packages valued in excess of $3,000. Subscribers can share their works of art with other MusicMatrix members and on popular social networking sites. Members also have the opportunity to generate income as they promote individual videos through the referral of new subscribers.
