BuzzAngle Music 2.0 Takes On SoundScan

BUZZANGLE MUSIC 2.0 has taken on NIELSEN's SOUNDSCAN by bringing the industry timely, granular and transparent data on a daily basis. The newest iteration of the service was launched this morning at the MUSIC BIZ convention in NASHVILLE.

BORDER CITY MEDIA CEO JIM LIDESTRI, the parent company for BUZZANGLE MUSIC, states: “BUZZANGLE MUSIC has disrupted the market by using new age technologies to store, process and pull out the needed information rapidly. We have a single global platform that allows deep querying and granular breakdowns to provide total transparency of the data, all in a system that’s more affordable. Users end up with the best of both worlds – better and more affordable than what’s prevailed for decades.”

The newly launched BUZZANGLE MUSIC 2.0 offers daily reporting of physical and digital sales, on-demand streaming, and terrestrial airplay in both the U.S. and CANADA, and is beginning trials of streaming data in the UK, FRANCE, ITALY, SPAIN and BRAZIL. All retailers and service providers of physical sales, digital sales, and on-demand streaming are reporting their data directly to BUZZANGLE MUSIC.

BEGGARS GROUP U.S. President MATT HARMON added: “In a very short time, BUZZANGLE MUSIC has become a become an indispensable tool for our entire team. The depth of information and the daily data allows us to be far more nimble in identifying and reacting to activity in a market. It’s become vital to have a more complete picture of the marketplace and BUZZANGLE MUSIC provides the info we need to do the best job for our artists.”

Customers of BUZZANGLE MUSIC include the major U.S. distributors, the RIAA as well as independent labels, artist management firms and publishing companies such as BEGGARS GROUP, CMT, SONGS MUSIC PUBLISHING, VICTORY RECORDS, EPITAPH RECORDS, ELEVEN SEVEN MUSIC, DUALTONE MUSIC GROUP, HILLSONG MUSIC AUSTRALIA, CD BABY, BIG DEAL MUSIC and Q PRIME MANAGEMENT.

BUZZANGLE MUSIC processes data daily and its platform allows users to run over a trillion unique reports, sliced into markets, customized to their exact genre or subgenre for each consumption type. These reports can be scheduled to run automatically, according to user preferences.

“You need to give the labels and artists time to react to what’s happening with a new release,” explains LIDESTRI. “Daily updates give them a chance to affect results as opposed to just wondering what is happening. You can really drill down, and you can do it all in a single interface.”
