Guvera, the unlimited music streaming service is now available in Malaysia. Programmed globally but tuned locally, millions of songs from top international and local artists are just a click away. Search, discover, create, play, share and manage the music you love with Guvera.
Developed in response to the mass consumption of illegal music online, Guvera provides users with a legal way to access music online that awards royalties to the artists and record labels responsible for producing it.
At the launch, Michael Wallis-Brown, Chief Commercial Officer Guvera Global, President and Managing Director Guvera Asia said, “Guvera is ushering in a new era of music streaming and offering users an exciting new way to experience music that’s simple and effortless. We are thrilled to introduce this technology to all avid music lovers in Malaysia. Guvera is transforming the way people experience music and advancing the music industry through innovation.”
One of Guvera’s key features is that it provides and supports local content, curating specialised playlists that feature local Malaysian artists such as Joe Flizzow, SonaOne, Faizal Tahir to name a few. With a service that is programmed globally but tuned locally, Guvera plans to reach out to the local music community to continually support the growth of the local music catalogue.
Another unique feature of the service provides users with the ability to tailor a music experience based on their current mood, activity or preferences by searching for music using hashtags. Rewarding listeners is the other area where Guvera sets itself apart from other services. For its top listeners, Guvera rewards them with special offers as well as opportunities to win “money-cannot-buy experiences” from Guvera’s music partners.
To celebrate its entry into Malaysia, Guvera is staging a concert at an exclusive venue in Kuala Lumpur this Friday. The event will be headlined by international hip hop star and actor Mos Def, now known as Yasiin Bey, and also showcases local acts Joe Flizzow and SonaOne among others.
Commenting on the concert, Wallis-Brown said, “We are always focused on bringing the Guvera experience to life in new and exciting ways for our users, while supporting the local artists and industry.”
Guvera also recently signed an agreement to become the World Wide Music partner for Lenovo. In collaboration with Guvera, Lenovo’s mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, will be pre-installed with Guvera’s music streaming service application, making Guvera a truly global player in the digital music streaming industry together with Lenovo. This partnership will see Guvera significantly expanding its footprint not only in Malaysia but globally as well. Guvera has international music licensing agreements with Sony, Universal Music, One Stop Music as well as Kartel Records, a local record label that houses a number of major local artists.
“As we continue to fully embrace the PC Plus era, Lenovo is very excited to be partnering with Guvera. This collaboration will see our Lenovo smart connected devices preloaded with the music service app, thus enhancing the daily experiences of our customers through the delivery of richer music content,” Khoo Hung Chuan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Malaysia said. He continued, “We are simply thrilled in continuing to establish the emotional connection between our brand and consumers through music.”
Wallis-Brown added, “Guvera Malaysia is now in the process of building a team to support users, artists, labels and business partners. We take a strong interest in acquiring the right talents to ensure Guvera’s music content and playlists are the best. Check your Guvera App regularly and we will surprise you with new playlists and tracks for every moment of the day.”
