World renowned tech-blog TheNextWeb.com just posted up an article featuring KBoom! Games & Music Dealers collaboration ‘Sound City.’ The article itself explores the various music licensing oppertunites in the world of social gaming.
“I was recently introduced to ‘Sound City’ – a forthcoming Facebook app from KBoom! Games which combines music discovery with Zynga style management of a virtual club and draws from tracks from new bands and artists that have signed up with licensing specialists Music Dealers. At a time where it is increasingly harder for musicians to both gain support from labels and distinguish themselves from other emerging artists, this gives many musicians something of an edge. This is especially true, given that the game allows them to create their own virtual ‘club’ space where they can share exclusive tracks with fans and even hire them as virtual staff.”More information about ‘Sound City’ should be available within the next few weeks. We’re excited! Until then, enjoy these never before seen screenshots from the game!
