DUBLIN, December 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The international independent music community Hitlantis, the biggest in Europe, is continuing to expand and is still attracting world-wide attention with its unique service and user interface. The achievements of Hitlantis, which has taken music community services into a new era, have been noted in 2010 in hundreds of media around the world since its launch.

Hitlantis is regarded as the fairest band site in the world, since it passes on to bands as much as 90 per cent of the revenue from the music sold. American channel giants CNBC and CBS chose Hitlantis, which launched a new era in its industry, as the most innovative company in the world. Rising to broad fame earlier this year through Hitlantis, Embassy of Silence already won a recording contract and many newcomers are still waiting for their breakthrough with Hitlantis' help.

"The future of music"

Professor Alf Rehn, who has gained international recognition and 13th place on the Thinkers 50 list, believes on The Guru Radar site that Hitlantis is even the next Nokia. According to Professor Rehn, who is widely known as a writer and speaker, Hitlantis will be reforming the music industry already in the next few years.

Journalist Phil Butler writes of a "mysterious online musical island" and believes that he is presenting the future of online music in his article. With its extensive network of performers, Butler says that Hitlantis is the most popular hub for indie music for a variety of reasons. He refers also to the recognition from CNBC and CBS. Butler suspects that Hitlantis has not yet even shown us what it's best at.

The most interesting in the world

Hitlantis concentrates on independent and so far unknown bands that do not have a recording contract. Users can listen to the music on direct playback without charge, but the service also offers the option of downloading music by purchasing bands' songs.

Artists owning the rights to their own music can upload their production free on Hitlantis, which is considered to be the most interesting music service in the world.

We have filled a vacuum, Hitlantis' Managing Director Marcus Tilgmann is glad to say.

Most of the attention gained by the company comes from the graphic implementation of the user interface, which has revolutionised the world of music on the internet.
