“Free Tunes” Tuesday: Erin Barra

Editors note: You are not crazy, I am. I’ve just been informed it’s Wednesday. “Free Tunes” will return at its regularly scheduled time, yes— next Tuesday!

It’s that time kiddies— another fine installment of “Free Tunes” Tuesday. And once again it’s on, with a true gem!

Brooklyn’s Erin Barra has been making noise in her hometown of NYC and beyond. And, frankly, it’s kinda difficult not to be a little bit in awe when listening to her music— as it’s patently and immediately clear— that it courses through every bit of her being.

It’s always refreshing to come across an artist in today’s landscape where the that kind of talent takes you aback, straight away. Perhaps that’s why the legendary John Oates of Hall & Oates also lends an endorsement on Erin’s site.

“When I first met Erin Barra at Berklee… I sensed she had something special. After our first writing session together, my instincts were confirmed. She is an “old Soul” musician with a very modern songwriting sensibility. She is the type of artist who can have a long career in the music business.” – JOHN OATES

Wow, if that’s not a super-cool “co-sign,” we don’t know what is! Check out her lil’ sparkler of a track, “Skyline,” after the jump (oh, did we mention it’s free?) a poignant ode to her adopted town of NYC, maybe?

The Myxer “Re:Myx” Project

At Myxer, we love giving back to our community whenever a good opportunity presents itself.

Recently, we launched Re:myx, a platform from which we could bestow some truly unique gifts to some of our unofficial, unsuspecting Myxer brand advocates— a.k.a some of our biggest fans!

As we’ve defined it, a “Re:myx” in Myxerland is basically this:

“A mega-awesome, totally custom, one-of-a-kind ringtone for some of Myxer’s biggest fans. Shout us out on Facebook or Twitter and your Re:Myx could be next!”

So, via our Twitter and Facebook pages, we’ve been keeping our peepers peeled for those who’ve either shouted us out in a spirited manner— told us they couldn’t live without us— or professed their “undying love,” or errr… maybe just their fond appreciation for Myxer.

So, here’s the basic gist…

You shout us out. If your post or tweet is selected as one of the lucky few, we then cruise to your FB or Twitter page to get a sense of your public persona. After a careful perusal, we take all of the knowledge kernels we can glean, then put them into a super-efficient, data compooterizer!

Once it generates a proper TPS Report, we then give it to some magic elves, who promptly run off and deliver your Re:myx stats and facts to a top-secret recording studio, high above a glacier field near the summit of one of Oregon’s tallest peaks. The custom ringtone is henceforth created by an army of tiny robots and beamed back to us, whole, through the trusty intertubes.

That is the manner in which a Re:Myx happens, kid you not! Well, maybe we kid…

No, really, a mere few weeks into the project, twenty plus Re:Myx ringtones under our collective belt, and we really couldn’t be any happier to be doling them out to our super-enthusiastic fanbase. And judging by some of the responses and requests that have been rolling in, it certainly does seem the feeling is mutual!

Our community, nearly 40 million-strong, is our lifeblood— the reason we come in everyday and constantly strive to innovate and give you guys the absolute best place on earth to get everything you could ever need or want for your phones and mobile devices!

We love all our fans and we’ll continue to keep sorting you guys and girls out with custom content you won’t be able to get anywhere else, and we do mean anywhere.

So, now that you know the drill, tell all your friends, keep sendin’ us those shout-outs and we’ll keep givin’ back, one custom Re:myx at a time!

Now, c’mon, chop-chop— head on over to our Facebook or Twitter, get busy with the comments, and perhaps your Re:myx could be next!

“Free Tunes” Tuesday: Dennis ‘DMoney’ Martinez

We love discovering new artists, and today’s artist has so much swagger, we’re glad to share this with you.

Sporting flashes of Jay-Z and Jason Derulo, Derrick “DMoney” Martinez is poised to make serious moves in the game. An East Coast swagger and pop sensibilities meet to create a winning formula.

Check out the bouncy, built-for-radio track “My Girl” featuring Yung Triy— we guarantee you’ll be singin’ this one from morning ‘til night! If you enjoy DMoney’s song, like we do here, make certain you check out all of his ringtones, too!

And when everyone asks where you heard him first, just tell ‘em Myxer— of course!

Brand Reach: Are You Maximizing Yours?

This article, ‘Are You Getting Your Pizza The Mobile Pie’ was penned by Myxer’s Chief Evangelist and “man-about-the-country,” Jeff Sass, and originally appeared @ his blog.

I had the pleasure of participating on two panels and giving a “spotlight” presentation at DigiDay: Mobile in NY on Monday. Nick Friese, Tameka Kee and the entire DM2 Media team run a great series of events focusing on all aspects of Digital Media, and my employer Myxer has been happy to be one of the sponsors of both DigiDay: Apps and DigiDay: Mobile. I enjoy speaking before a crowd, and had some fun this time bringing along an edible “prop.” The description of the session and video of the presentation is below. What do you think? Does the idea of “branded mobile content” resonate with you? I welcome your thoughts and feedback in the comments.

FREE Branded Content: Mobile For The Mass Market: Apps, apps, apps. Location, location, location. These are the incessantly buzzing Buzz words of the day. But the majority of U.S. mobile subscribers don’t have a Smartphone yet, and they have little interest in sharing their every move with friends and marketers. How do brands reach the masses of the mobile marketplace in fun, engaging and attention getting ways? With branded personalization content that rings true across all handsets, smart or not. Brands from GEICO to SKITTLES to FORD to ORBIT and more have leveraged the broad reach of free branded mobile content to establish lasting engagement with consumers.

So, did the little piggy cry “weee, weee, weee— all the way home?” Guess you’ll have to download the ringtone from the widget below to find out!
