Is there a relationship be between IUMA and Vitaminic?

On March 23, 2001, IUMA was purchased by Vitaminic. As a result, we were able to re-hire the core staff, re-launch the IUMA web site, and continue doing what IUMA does best: providing the best resource destination on the web for unsigned artists to promote their music.

Vitaminic is the leading digital music distributor in Europe, with relationships with hundreds of labels and almost 25,000 signed and unsigned artists. Over the next few months, we'll work to figure out the best ways for our communities to work together. In general, IUMA artists can look forward to greater promotional coverage over in Europe, as well as closer contact with the large number of the labels in the Vitaminic label network. Stay tuned for more details!

The one place to post your music where actual musicians are watching out for you - not weasels watching the numbers. You have your own URL with your band name first. And a custom web page where you can post all your band info and MP3s, sell CDs, create message boards, fan lists, and of course, get e-mail from your fans - all Free.

The IUMA mission is simple - for every artist with a record deal, on FM radio, or in Tower Records - there are a thousand talented artists chasing that dream and a million new music fans who will never get to hear their music. We're changing all that - bringing these artists and fans together, getting the music out and giving new music fans a cool new way to discover new music.

Using the site is easy. Go to the home page, find a genre of music you like, and start listening to new music. You can sample it in Real Audio and then pull the MP3s when you find something you like. You can also visit Artist's IUMA web site and interact with the artist through email and message boards. If you've got work to do, we suggest you launch IUMA Radio and let your favorite genre play in the background while you work.

Atthe heart of it all, IUMA is about letting the music speak for itself, and letting the artist speak directly to their fans. We remain committed to the independent musician and will continue to bring you the future of music.

For now, IUMA and Vitaminic will continue to run as separate web sites. However, as we integrate with Vitaminic over the next several months, we expect to be able to offer IUMA artists greater European exposure through the Vitaminic network. (Keep up on all this folks, CK)
