OneBeat, the emerging leader in online electronic dance music media and original content, announced today it has partnered with Microsoft to create an exclusive, EDM-centric entertainment app for the Xbox LIVE platform. Available free to Xbox LIVE users via their Xbox 360 consoles, the app will feature a mix of OneBeat original series along with live streaming performances featuring top EDM artists. The ad-supported app will be available to users around the world.

"Like Rock 'n' Roll and Hip Hop before it, EDM is now the dominant soundtrack of the global youth audience," said Mikhail LaPushner, CEO of OneBeat. "We're excited to partner with Microsoft to create an exclusive, EDM entertainment app for Xbox LIVE that will provide fans with tons of great music and original content as well as offer brands a direct and powerful conduit to reach this dynamic, passionate and engaged demographic."

Designed to provide electronic dance music (EDM) fans with a direct connection to the worldwide ecosystem of EDM culture, the OneBeat entertainment app is one of the first, large-scale channels devoted to the global phenomenon that is EDM. According to Nielsen, EDM is the fastest growing genre of music, with seven of the top ten tracks streamed in 2012 coming from the EDM category. Original programming on the OneBeat app will include shows and news focused around EDM lifestyle, DJs, music festivals, fashion, travel and fans.

"Our mission has been to make the entertainment people love, more amazing on Xbox. Teaming with OneBeat allows us to further that mission by creating a one-stop electronic dance music destination for fans to celebrate and explore their passions on Xbox. With EDM-specific programming and live events, we expect the OneBeat entertainment app to be a hit with the Xbox LIVE audience and further propel Xbox as the leading entertainment destination in the living today," said Ross Honey, general manager of Xbox LIVE Entertainment and Advertising.

"EDM culture is a content maker's dream, with a global mix of the most interesting personalities and characters in pop culture today," said Joseph Kanellitsas, chief creative officer of OneBeat. "OneBeat's content will explore, share and profile the talent and amazing visionaries that make up this incredible music movement."

The EDM-centric app will be available for download Spring 2013. For more information about OneBeat, please visit www.OneBeat.tv , Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OneBeatChannel, follow us on Twitter @OneBeatChannel or check us out on YouTube www.youtube.com/onebeatchannel.
