September 17, 2004

by -- Musicrypt

Before the ink was dry on last night's newly crowned Canadian Idol Kalan
Porter's recording contract with ViK.recordings (BMG Canada, Inc.) his
debut single, "Awake In A Dream", was securely made available to every
radio station in the country.
Thanks to Musicrypt's revolutionary DMDS (Digital Media Distribution
System), which delivered the song simultaneously over the Internet to
Canadian radio at 1 AM ET, millions of Canadian radio listeners are
already able to enjoy the debut single from the new Canadian Idol.

Warren Copnick, Director, National Promotion, BMG Canada, Inc. said,
"We're excited to be sending out the single from our new Canadian Idol
via DMDS. Moments after finding out that Kalan Porter was chosen the
winner, Musicrypt's DMDS allowed us the flexibility to deliver the
single immediately and securely to all of our staff, and in broadcast
quality to radio programmers, consultants and industry contacts. Before
the advent of this remarkable Canadian developed technology, this would
not have been possible".

"Musicrypt's software (DMDS) provides a tremendous benefit to artists
and record companies as witnessed by the delivery of "Awake In A
Dream", said Musicrypt Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Peter Diemer.
"We are pleased that DMDS facilitated the timely release of Kalan
Porter's debut single. DMDS is the delivery system of choice for the
majority of Canadian record labels and radio stations and the
record-company-radio-station-digital-delivery paradigm has proven itself
to be far more effective and less costly and far more exciting as new
records reap the benefits of immediate reaction from programmers."
