Musicrypt's DMDS Delivers Major Label Releases to U.S. Radio

New Coldplay Single Delivered First for Capitol Records Along With Foo Fighters for RCA With Musicrypt's DMDS

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 26, 2005 -- Musicrypt Inc. (TSX: MCT) (OTC BB: MCYPF), the industry's leading digital music distribution company, today announced the secure delivery of highly anticipated new singles "Speed of Sound" by superstar artists Coldplay (Capitol Records) on Monday, April 18th at 9:00 am ET, and "Best of You" by Foo Fighters (RCA Records) on Wednesday, April 20th at 6 am ET to radio in the United States.

Musicrypt was the first digital music distributor to deliver the record-breaking new hit single "American Baby" from RCA recording artist The Dave Matthews Band to U.S. Radio. Also released first were new singles by The Backstreet Boys on Jive/Zomba and Kelly Clarkson on RCA. Additional recent releases from RCA include new music from Mario and Citizen Cope. The beautiful voices from this year's American Idol competition came together to raise funds for the American Red Cross disaster relief fund through the sale of a special CD. Three singles from this extraordinary project were distributed via DMDS, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," "Everything Is Beautiful" and "When You Tell Me That You Love Me."

This activity follows a very successful March 2005 launch into the United States music and broadcast markets with the support and partnership with industry leader, Billboard Radio Monitor (VNU/AEX) and the endorsement of Clear Channel Radio.

"We greatly appreciate the support of Billboard Radio Monitor, and the U.S.-based record labels helping us move towards our goal of becoming the premier digital music distributor in the United States," stated Cliff Hunt, Chief Operating Officer and Chairman for Musicrypt.
