I’m pleased to announce that we (AdRev / AudioMicro, Inc.) have acquired music distribution company DashGo - .

For details on the acquisition, check out this article —>


1.  DashGo distributes music worldwide to iTunes, Spotify, YouTube Music Key, Pandora, Amazon, Google Play, Beats, Rdio, Rhapsody, Sound Exchange, Shazam, BeatPort and other music retailers and collection societies.

2.  DashGo takes a hands-on approach in driving visibility, retail marketing and discovery strategy for client releases.  The company’s robust dashboard gives labels the flexibility to easily manage repertoire, offering a premium catalog to music retailers while allowing rights holders to retain full control over their music.

3.  DashGo has an incredible client base including David Hernandez’s DH1 Media, Coconut Records, Rock Mafia, and Katy Tiz, to name a few, providing an amazing foundation to nurture and expand upon.

4.  DashGo was founded in 2004 by entrepreneur Ben Patterson.  Ben will continue as CEO of DashGo (and the entire DashGo team including Tate Palmer and Jeremy Vilela will stay on as well).  We will be expanding DashGo’s products services along with our YouTube rights management services at AdRev.

Happy Holidays!  Hoping that 2015 is your best year ever.

I simply don’t have any time or focus theses days to enable myself to create detailed topical blog posts here but hope to get back to doing so some day.
