Rocudo is an online music mixing platform which delivers Direct-to-Fan engagement to artists and record  labels by leveraging  social networking culture.  The Rocudo platform allows fans to take original music tracks, remix them online and then share their unique creations with other Fans via social networks like Facebook.


 

Artists typically use Rocudo to encourage fans to remix clips of upcoming tracks before they are released.  Fans collectively vote for their favourite remixes and share them online via social networks.  Rocudo tracks all these activities and feeds back analytical data to artists  and record labels to help them measure and improve their online promotional campaigns.

Its eDJ/Producer platform  is now  expanding fast, by building a strong base of original music tracks which it provides to online subscribers. Rocudo has artists and fan subscribers from 51 countries on five continents.

 


Rocudo's  platform enables artists and DJs to create promotional widgets that feed music, images, tour dates, merchandise and other information directly to fans’ social networking pages.  Fans remix their favourite Artists’ music online, producing their own unique creations, which  they can also share through sites like Facebook or Twitter.

 


MacCabe said: "Breaking through the 50 Artists barrier signals that we are building up momentum. Marcin is a fantastic DJ/Producer and a great addition to the roster of artists we’ve managed to attract”.


Our primary goal now is to drive fan subscriptions, and to achieve that we need quality music for them to engage with”, explained MacCabe

 

We’re getting interest from record labels who want to use Rocudo as an online promotional tool for their artists, as well as from brands looking to engage their audiences through interactive music in a social networking context.
