Ever since founding Def Jam Records from his NYU dorm room and catapulting the careers of the hip-hop, punk and heavy metal greats (with a few pop stars sprinkled in), Rick Rubin has been one of the most well-known producers in the music industry.  Working in a role that typically goes unrecognized in the realm of music creation, Rubin and his beard, his monk-like philosophy and his penchant for going barefoot have made him an icon in his own right.

We are excited to announce a big improvement to the Earbits service.

Last year, we generated over 70,000 fans for our artists through Earbits Radio. Today we’re launching something that we think is going to dramatically increase the results we’ll be able to provide to our artists and labels. We think this news is exciting and that you’re going to want the full scoop, but if you want the short version, just read the bold parts.

Check out the new Earbits!

All artist profiles will now have mailing signup capabilities so that our users can give you their email address.

Are you sitting down? We have some news that might make your knees weak.

Earbits is excited to announce Groovies, a new Earbits currency that you earn whenever you take actions that support our bands.

Share a track with friends, earn 100 Groovies. Join a fan page or mailing list, earn 50 Groovies.

Check out the new Earbits!

Okay, but what do I do with Groovies? We’re glad you asked.

Along with Groovies, we’re launching a ton of improvements to the site and a bunch of new on-demand listening features.
