News Page 3 of 38
YouTube and Myspace Music Host Online Premiere of Anand Bhattâ€™s "World
Keeps Turning" Music Video. Vevo.com to Follow.
From the moment Anand Bhattâ€™s â€œWorld Keeps Turningâ€ danced through
the radio airwaves and the club scene, his fans worldwide have been eagerly and
anxiously waiting for the music video debut of the hit single. The wait is finally
over and YouTube ( WORLD KEEPS TURNING VIDEO) and Myspace Music premiere
the epic video, which features the pop star in full HD animated form. â€œWorld
Keeps Turningâ€ is the second single from Anand Bhatt this year since he earned
both the Gold and Platinum record awards.

it over and over again right away. Both singles "World Keeps Turning" and its
News Page 4 of 38
predecessor "Kitna Pyar" will continue to be heard on dancefloors and radio
around the world.
â€œSeeing myself in animated form is pretty exciting,â€ Anand Bhatt said about
the â€œWorld Keeps Turningâ€ video in an interview about the songâ€™s
submission for Paul Van Dykâ€™s VONYC Sessions. â€œCartoon Anand can do all
sorts of cool things that Iâ€™d like to learn, like teleport from The Eiffel Tower to
Staples Center in a flash.â€
Catchy, cute and wildly entertaining, this visually stunning animation masterpiece
features real dance moves choreographed for the characters. Anand Bhatt also
designed his own iconic outfit featuring a gold shirt that matches his new
Dragonfly Guitar, a gift from the Parker Guitars Company. This is far from your
typical music video.

breaking platinum record sales, Anand Bhatt has consistently entertained and
inspired. This year alone he has been blessed with a book deal, awards, and
Released on May 30, 2011, "World Keeps Turning" is the follow-up to the popular
Anand Bhatt song "Kitna Pyar" Anand Bhatt has said that the video for â€œWorld
Keeps Turningâ€ captures the message of the song ideally in that it helps solidify
the notion that no matter what goes on in the world, we can keep on keeping on
with a smile on our faces. In the new video, Bhattâ€™s on-screen chemistry is
exemplified by his ultra cute animated self and transforms the song from a
popular dance floor gem to a raw and explosive piece of art to be reckoned with.
Anand Bhattâ€™s music and videos are available at all major retail locations such
as iTunes, Myxer, Amazon, eMusic, Napster, Audio Jelly, and Myspace. Anand
Bhatt keeps in touch with his fans via twitter and on his Facebook Fan Page
(ANAND BHATT FAN PAGE).

breaks in entertainment and pop culture make them the perfect venues for this
incredible, jaw-dropping premiere.

Disc On Demand!
Sonic Wave & Amazon. Sonic Wave International is pleased to announce our expanded
relationship with the Amazon Disc On Demand service in the US. If you are not aware of

Amazon.com customers the option of purchasing a CD. All of the research shows that the
results do NOT cannibalize digital sales, but instead are incremental sales for labels and
artists because of the sizable consumer base that has yet to convert to â€œdigitalâ€ .

Universal Music Group and S.W.I.
Sonic Wave Intl Continues its Industry Domination: The balance of power clearly
shifts towards Sonic Wave as the other Majors start needing distribution help. It is with great
pride that we announce an exciting new alliance with Universal Music Group (UMG). Today,
we have officially announced that we benefit as part of a strategic alliance with UMG. The
alliance involves a substantial investment in Sonic Wave International and a multi-year
Content Services Agreement with our distributors to manage the distribution of UMG's audio
and video releases to online and mobile outlets around the world.
The major players have always been interested in S.W.I. However, Sonic Wave was not for
sale. We felt strongly committed to maintaining our independence, knowing that it is our
innovative business model that sets us apart from the competition; with this in mind, UMG
and our distributors were equally dedicated to our maintaining this entrepreneurial spirit.
The new alliance will help us with our industry domination and existing platform and continue
the expansion of our digital offerings to buyers. This will allow Sonic Wave Artists
opportunities that weren't previously available, and that are not available form any other
label. For example, coordination with UMG on our respective online and mobile retail deals
will result in better rates, better placement and more direct mobile relationships. With our
additional resources there will now also be an even Greater opportunities with our
international presence (as if we weren't worldwide enough :D) via more retail channels and
targeted marketing of our Artists.

Winter S. Asian Tour and Writer's Strike and GRAMMY's
SUCCESS, SUCCESS, SUCCESS - it's great to be heard: There are lots of benefits and
powers when working for Sonic Wave, from the ability to reach fans across the world to
influencing a major hollywood writer's strike. SWI recording artist Winter launches their S.
Asian tour this week with two sold out shows in Singapore! Make sure you check out their

State of the Union
Sonic Wave has beat the major label competition again, and this was commendable
considering it was a difficult year for all record labels. The Sonic Wave Family is very proud!
All though stories about the impending end of the record business as a whole had made
headlines throughout 2007, and our competitor labels' sales are down more than 15%, Sonic
Wave sales are up over 30%! Why? The reason is the industry's focus to digital media. Other
major labels were slow to move away from physical CDs. Sonic Wave was quick to push
releases digitally and the company and the artists as a whole were very successful because of
it. Again, Sonic Wave's insistence on being on the cutting edge of distribution has pushed us
to the top.
GRAMMY's: Sonic Wave continues to be a major force in Grammy voting and having Grammy
considerations. We will be seen and represented on CBS at the 50th annual GRAMMY awards
this Feb, 10th 2008.
TV and FILM: 2007 proved some great success in television and film production for Sonic
Wave, not just in providing music, but in producing our own shows and film projects. We will
continue this focus through 2008 and provide for more casting opportunites for popular Sonic
Wave artists as well as expand our avenues to the public to include online, digital, and HD
shows and movies.

January 9, 2006 - State of the Union
Top Label in Sales: THXS to Fans like U!! 2005 was an amazing year! 2006 has already
proved to be even better !! You may have read that the other major labels had an all time
low of CD sales, Sonic Wave's sales went up - and we are continuing to stay ahead of our
competitors through and through. Which is why you will see many artists leave other labels to
sign with Sonic Wave in 2006.
All though we will continue to make $$ from physical retail sales, we will not be left behind as
digital sales take over the industry. In fact, once again, we are ahead of the game. In
2005, we expanded our distribution network now to be THE largest, in particular by adding
hip emerging niche stores to our global digital retail platform. We made an uncountable
number of promotional placements through innovative marketing and merchandising and
took part in a more sophisticated sales technology platform than anyone selling digital music
In 2006, we are working on expansive digital video distribution - from independent films to
music videos to short clips for mobile phones - to emerging digital video stores, including
Google, iTunes, MusicNet and more AND even MORE global expansion, including new
distribution partners in more countries and another office in Asia. Even with this vast
projected increase of download revenue, we are still committed to keeping our physical retail
stores happy and hope to gain their support for an expansion of shelf space and floor space
for CDs and DVDs - so if you haven't completely caught up with the digital revolution yet you
can still support your favorite artists.
