"MEDIAZOIC'S ONE-STOP APPROACH TO STREAMING MUSIC LEGALLY MAKES THE PROCESS A CINCH. WITHOUT THE LICENCE, AND THE PLAYER, WE WOULD BE STUCK IN THE 20TH CENTURY."
– David Farrell
Launched in the Spring of 2012, NewCanadianMusic.ca is exclusively focused on Canadian music and Canadian acts, updated Fridays to include the latest releases (singles, EPs and albums), and augmented with audio samples and streams, charts, comprehensive information, and links to various online music services for further discovery. The experienced team behind NCM pulls together the weekly update, sifting through as many as 100 releases to highlight the best of the best in all genres in the weekly NCM radio show, embedded in the MEDIAZOIC-powered NCM player accessed through the 'Top Tracks of the Week' on the home page of the NCM site.
As Canada's premier source for Canadian music releases, NewCanadianMusic.ca plays on a big stage, for a big crowd, and as such the site's radio component required a clarity of focus and depth of commitment unmatched by what had been required by any previous MEDIAZOIC clients. The very smart and musical folks over at NewCanadianMusic.ca wanted three separate playable pieces of mobile-capable technology with licensed music baked right in, which would integrate deeply but inconspicuously into their vision for the site. Technically speaking, this required a high level of cooperation between each company's development team. Organizationally speaking, it required us to figure out how to marshall all our resources to help deliver a client's important project milestones. We think the result speaks for itself - NewCanadianMusic.ca is growing in popularity daily and has become in a very short time one of Canada's premier online music brands.
