TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 30, 2016) - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX VENTURE: YOO) (OTCBB: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media management and distribution company, today announced that, along with delivering and hosting music releases beginning in September 2016, The IASCA, doing business as YANGAROO Music Ireland (under the previously announced licensing agreement with YANGAROO Inc.), has partnered with Radiomonitor, the airplay monitoring service, to present two new music charts of Irish artists entering, rising and performing well in the radio airplay charts.
YANGAROO Music Ireland has this week committed to providing a number of charts to highlight the performance of Irish music for Irish media on various platforms -- airplay, streaming and discovery. Breaking Irish Music Chart will discover new artists and Current Irish Music Chart will highlight the more established or better performing Irish artists -- providing a filter on how well new and established Irish artists are performing. These charts, as a result of this partnership, are now live on YangarooMusic.ie for registered media to access.
Radiomonitor's General Manager, Feidhlim Byrne, says: "Any way we can help identify what new releases are doing well, to help both the Irish music and radio industry, is a no-brainer for us. We are thrilled to work with YANGAROO and IASCA."
YANGAROO Music Ireland's CEO, Sinead Troy, added: "Working together creates better results for all -- in a busy media environment. Our aim is to save time while highlighting Irish music more. If everyone can access information in one place, that will become the go-to place. Radiomonitor is our first chart partner for YANGAROO, and we are in discussions with a streaming platform as our next partner."
"We are very excited with the early progress that Sinead and YANGAROO Music Ireland is having," said Cliff Hunt, Founder and COO of YANGAROO Inc. "Irish artists have always delivered significant and unique music both within Ireland and to the rest of the world and we're happy to be able to play a part."
Currently, all national, multi-city, regional and local independent radio stations are registered with YANGAROO Music Ireland, along with the majority of national press and music bloggers. Owned by IASCA and created as a solution to a problem for both Irish music and Irish media, the support started with Irish President Higgins, who recorded a speech about Irish music and creativity which was the very first piece of audio digitally delivered by YANGAROO to Irish media. Along with that speech, releases from Van Morrison, Cathy Davey, James Vincent McMorrow, Pleasure Beach and Twin Atlantic are all now available to stream and download.
