Initial content will be provided by leading independent music labels, including Ninja Tune, Nettwerk Music Group, Domino, Warp, Atlantic and Mute, who have artists including the Arctic Monkeys, Moby and Aphex Twin in their catalogues. has secured partnerships with EMI, Warner and over 20,000 independent labels – and is in negotiation with Universal and Sony Music Group, offering its users personalised channels from the largest legal catalogue of music videos on the web. says it aims eventually to have every music video ever made on the site, from the latest hits to underground obscurities to classics from the past.
