FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL) – a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps – announced today that famed DJ and producer Kaskade has formed a partnership to help promote and grow the Hang w/ platform.
Kaskade will use the Hang w/ platform to share his life with his millions of fans. In only his first week on the platform, Kaskade broadcast live from a helicopter ride over Long Beach, California and from behind the turntables at a live show. He even used Hang w/ before his show to ask fans which songs he should perform that night.
Fueled by celebrity involvement, the "Hang w/" app is quickly gaining downloads and momentum after being released to the Apple App Store in March – reaching as high as #11 in Social Media. It enables live, real-time video to be sent from one phone to many. Anyone with an iPhone - and soon Android - device can connect instantly to hundreds, thousands, even millions of fans via 3-minute live-streaming video broadcasts.
Kaskade has helped to lay the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift: a post-rock EDM revolution that has captured the imagination of a new generation of music lovers across North America.
"I've always believed that performance is about giving your fans a true experience," said Kaskade. "Hang With lets my fans experience something they've never been able to see before. I plan to bring them with me, live, for a first-person, front-row seat on this great musical adventure."
"Kaskade is the perfect performer for Hang With," said Andrew Maltin, MEDL Mobile CEO. "He really gets it and sees how it can help build loyalty among his followers. In only his first weekend on the platform, he's already broadcast dozens of times."
"I'll never forget his first broadcast," said Dave Swartz, MEDL Mobile President. "In true Kaskade style, he decided to try it for the first time while taking off in a helicopter. Half of the office was thrilled to have Kaskade on Hang With. The other half was jumping up and down because the technology was performing great from 2,000 feet in the air."
