Ckrush Digital Media, Inc., a subsidiary of Ckrush, Inc. (OTCBB: CKRH), announced today its official alliance with one of the world’s leading music creation and software houses, eJay –www.ejay.com. eJay's music creation software reflects current trends in music, lifestyle and youth culture, covering styles such as techno, trance, house and hiphop, and aims to make music creation fun and accessible to a wide audience. eJay’s software will be available on the Ckrush websites and social networks AudioStreet.net; MixStreet.net; and LiveMansion.com
eJay’s priority was to find a global business partner with an online delivery infrastructure capable of providing eJay fans and music consumers with easy download access to eJay music files, in an instant. Users now have a cost effective, easy-to-use, file share and swap facility enabling them to download the software with ease and efficiency. eJay also wanted to give budding music creators the facility to showcase their music within a simple, fast social network system.
The Ckrush sites are home to over 80,000 independent musicians and DJs. Ckrush will be promoting the eJay series on its highly popular www.AudioStreet.net, www.LiveMansion.com and www.MixStreet.net websites. Additional promotion to the 80,000 members will come in the way of newsletters and online promotions. Ckrush will also be the backbone for the online download store for all eJay products.

"Ckrush is committed to bringing the best possible opportunities to the members of our web communities and we bring a targeted audience to our partners," said Jeremy Dallow President of Ckrush Inc. “For the over 80,000 independent musicians and dj’s who populate our communities, eJay’s dynamic solutions are a perfect fit and we are thrilled to be working with eJay.”
David Askew, General Manager eJay (worldwide) adds:
“Due to increasing global demand for our products, eJay realised it needed to quickly find a leading business partner who could host an online/download store for all eJay products – on a worldwide scale. This approach would enable eJay to provide customers a simple yet powerful download solution - the opportunity to purchase, store, swap and share music files, across the globe within seconds. After a high profile international search for a partner, with such a demanding specific criteria, Ckrush emerged as the ideal partner.”
