Digital Delivery with EZ-D™

The Best of Both Worlds!

DMDS is the only digital radio delivery service to offer senders the option of providing no log-in, one-click streams directly from email notifications.

Now we've taken it one step further with EZ-D™: Easy, NO LOG-IN DOWNLOADS directly from email notifications. At no extra charge, recipients are provided with a DOWNLOAD button on the notification providing WAV downloads for broadcast or further auditioning.

How it Works

Downloading Made Easy

EZ-D™ provides the easiest way for radio to download your music for airplay; no log-in required. But it doesn't end there! Your Single and Album releases are still delivered to the recipients' online DMDS Library, providing them with a second, more feature-rich way to discover your music for airplay.

The DMDS Library Provides

  • Recipients' browser opens to provide play/download options
  • WAV files are saved to the recipients' folder of choice
  • Integration with automation/scheduling systems for automated metadata import and on-air playback
  • The ability to access releases from any online computer or smartphone (no need to access email to get your music)
  • The ability for new personnel or recently flipped stations to get instant access to at least the last year of releases
  • If the recipient can't find or accidentally deleted the email, the music is still available via their DMDS Library and much more!

Try doing that with a CD in an envelope, in an email with an MP3 attachment, or any other digital delivery service!

“DMDS Rising Star” Music Contest – Update & Frontrunners

Hi everyone!

Well, a lot of people have asked us about an official update. So, for all of those who are excited and anxious about this awesome opportunity, here we have the preliminary numbers.

However, before we jump to the list of submissions and front-runners, we would like you to go over a few considerations:

- This list will be updated every week until March 21, 2012, but a final official announcement will be done on March 27, 2012.

- Unfortunately, we had disqualified several submissions because of many reasons. If you’re participating, please read and re-read our terms and conditions – and, don’t cheat. If you do it, we’ll catch you! (Seriously, we already have someone else in target – we’re watching you!)

- For all the participants, use this link (http://ow.ly/9taKx) from now on to promote your submissions. Tweet and share on your social media networks using the hashtag #DMDSRisingStar. Ex: “Friends & fans, you can find my #DMDSRisingStar music contest submission here. Look for my name, click on my link & Like-vote for me!”
