COOLIO, ELASTICA AND OZOMATLI ADD EXCLUSIVE NEW SONGS TO MUSICBLITZ CATALOG

MUSICBLITZ Also Signs Production/A&R Deal with Ozomatliís Raul Pacheco

Los Angeles, CA - August 22, 2000 - MUSICBLITZ, an innovative developer of exclusive new music and targeted music brands, has expanded its catalog with new songs from Grammy Award-winning rapper Coolio, critically acclaimed chart-toppers Elastica and the Latin/hip-hop group Ozomatli, which was recently deemed the Best World Music/Recombinant Artist at the L.A. Music Awards. Consumers can download all of MUSICBLITZís exclusive songs for free at www.musicblitz.com. 

MUSICBLITZ has built its catalog of exclusive music from over 100 well-known artists by giving them a flexible contract to record new music on a project-by-project basis. Even artists already signed to other labels, as is the case with Coolio, Elastica and Ozomatli, often work with MUSICBLITZ at the same time. In so doing, they can generate additional buzz for their other projects or do something completely different for their fans. The artists are compensated each time their music is downloaded from MUSICBLITZ. 

"MUSICBLITZ gives artists the resources and platform to create something special for their fans," explained Mike Mena, MUSICBLITZ's vice president of artist development. "Our business is grounded in our ability to provide great new music from some of today's most innovative, respected and awarded artists."

In addition to compensating artists for their music, MUSICBLITZ also provides the resources to help them record it. The company has relationships with several renowned producers who work with artists in the recording studio. 

The most recent producer to join the MUSICBLITZ roster is Ozomatliís Raul "El Bully" Pacheco. He will produce songs and recruit other established and up-and-coming artists to record exclusive new singles for MUSICBLITZ. 

Commented Pacheco, "There are a lot of extremely talented artists that want to embrace the Internet to stay in touch with their hard-core fans and generate additional exposure for their music. Iím looking forward to hooking up some of my favorite bands with MUSICBLITZ to help them further their careers."

MUSICBLITZís catalog spans a variety of musical genres, including hip-hop, rock, blues, reggae, electronica, metal, punk and alt-country. Other well-known artists who have recorded exclusive songs for MUSICBLITZ include Aimee Mann, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, Wailing Souls, Shabba Ranks, Taj Mahal, The Presidents of the United States of America, Maxi Priest, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Motorhead and Wayne Kramer. MUSICBLITZ re-packages its catalog of music to generate revenues from FM radio, retail, concert tours, and cable and broadcast television.
