This week, EMI Music UK celebrates the 10th anniversary of its award-winning aggregate site, The Raft, by launching an exclusive '10 years in tune' feature. The feature will bring together tracks, videos, rareities, and prizes from a selection of the decade’s most influential artists.

PR9.NET April 01, 2005 - EMI Music UK is inviting consumers to vote for their favourite icons, landmark albums, gigs, events and artists from a period that saw the advent of Britpop, electronica and even girl power.

As a community site, The Raft provides EMI Music UK's labels and artists with a space where consumers can find a huge selection of accredited news, music and video. In the decade since The Raft's launch, its exclusive and bespoke content has provided EMI Music UK with consumer insight and a commercial edge; simultaneously allowing the music label to get closer to fans and providing quality content to brands. EMI Music UK's partnership with Samsung UK's Funclub site highlights the value of The Raft's content to brands; making sites more 'sticky', adding value to customers and providing the 'glue' to an online community.

Danny Van Emden, Digital Media Director at EMI Music UK, comments, "For us, The Raft is a great channel for building and sustaining our relationship with consumers. Having established trust with our audience, we have been able to create lasting relationships, introduce them to emerging talent, identify new trends and offer our audience a 'say'. The site is also somewhere where we can be proactive and flexible when it comes to working with brands as we can create bespoke content and offer maximum appeal at sensible prices."

The Raft has over 300,000 registered fans, all of whom identified their musical preferences when subscribing. For the past 10 years, EMI Music UK has been able to effectively use this growing database to cross-sell and up-sell, and to sustain a personalised dialogue with its audience.

Van Emden continues, "As the first magazine-based site to launch, The Raft has provided consumers with a central site that allows them to access quickly and easily a huge selection of artist accredited news, music and video."

The Raft offers exclusive artist interviews, exclusive movies, webcast, webchat events and links to EMI Music UK's official artists' sites, driving traffic to these sites.

The Raft has revealed exclusive interviews with The Chemical Brothers; Massive Attack; Blue; Spice Girls; Willy Mason; Macy Gray; and Michael Eavis, the Glastonbury Festival organiser.
