TuneGO® Inc., a music platform that connects independent artists with a global community of music fans and industry professionals, announced today a partnership with Muzen Audio Co. Ltd., a company that makes Muzen OTR Wood a retro radio and Bluetooth speaker, founded by five-time winner of the CES Innovation Award. This strategic partnership will provide both companies with branding collaborations and product integration, including enhanced distribution of TuneGO artists through its mobile app for play on Muzen radio.
“We are always looking for ways to get artists from our platform more attention from a wider audience. Teaming up with Muzen Audio is a definite win and helps us to further our goal of providing increased distribution opportunities through additional platforms for artists who otherwise may not be heard,” said Kohl. “To have our content featured on Muzen OTR radio is a great opportunity for artists to be heard around the world and especially in one of the largest markets, China. At the same time, with its great retro design and sound, we are sure to create awareness of Muzen’s radio and speaker in the U.S.”
A press conference by Muzen Audio will be held at the NY NOW Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 2:30 p.m. ET. This press conference will discuss Muzen’s Indiegogo campaign and include John Kohl, co-founder and CEO of TuneGO and a performance from TuneGO artist Charlie Faye & The Fayettes.
What is Muzen OTR Wood?
Muzen OTR Woods is an impressive product and won the 2017 CES Innovation Award. Dejun Zeng, founder of Muzen Audio is, in fact, a five-time winner of CES Innovation Award. As the designer of China’s first commercial tube amplifier, Zeng has spent his entire life designing radio and audio products. The Muzen OTR radio is the culmination of many years of toiling to create a high-quality retro-style radio integrated with modern technologies. Made of precious rosewood, each Muzen OTR Wood has a unique texture pattern and features FM, Bluetooth and AUX three types of audio input. A portable device, it also comes with a lithium battery with 10-hour playtime and is easy to operate with amazing quality.
“TuneGO and Muzen share a common mission; create a place where artists can be heard and the music can shine through. This partnership is natural for us and we look forward to working together long into the future,” said Zeng.
Why Radio Caroline?
Muzen Audio is also paying tribute to Radio Caroline, a pirate radio station that has inspired numerous DJs and music lovers around the world. Through its Indiegogo campaign, ten percent of the money raised will go to Radio Caroline. Every person who purchases a Muzen OTR Wood will receive a Radio Caroline souvenir pack.
Radio Caroline was founded by the visionary Ronan O’Rahilly in 1964 to circumvent the mainstream radio stations’ suppression of Rock ‘n’ Roll music in Europe. By broadcasting 24 hours a day on a boat, Radio Caroline inspired millions of music lovers.
