Audio streaming system for world-renowned independent house music label.
Having released hundreds of singles and a growing number of albums, the label's ground-breaking style has earned respect on both sides of the Atlantic attracting some of the top artists in the business.
Azuli needed a way of compiling, editing and releasing encoded music samples to the web, with a flexible system of streaming these samples to customers on demand.
eplatforms built a media streaming engine to allow both the encoded sample and the accompanying track information to be streamed to the customer in real-time, transparently using pre-installed software. Not content with that, eplatforms gave the system the flexibility to automatically change from audio streaming to using a streaming server should the demand rise past a certain point.
To enable staff to properly catalogue the tracks and publish them to the web, eplatforms built a back-end database to be able to quickly and efficiently allow tracks to be sorted, edited, deleted and marked as forthcoming. An easy-to-use control panel, accessed through the user's web browser, gives a low-cost but powerful interface, avoiding the need for extra onboard software.
Azuli records operated for more than 18 years in the world of dance records. During this time they released over 270 singles and over 60 albums. Their ground breaking style, giving dance a european edge brought them wide respect on both sides of the Atlantic, attracting some of the top artists in the business. Today their name continues on as part of British independent record label Defected.
