SAN DIEGO (February 17, 2015) – Rock My World Inc., the creators of RockMyRun, a free health & fitness app that provides motivational mixes for active people, announced today their collaboration with Dave Audé, acclaimed music producer and DJ. As creative consultant, Audé will bring his expertise and style to the RockMyRun app by crafting exclusive, one-of-a-kind mixes. He will utilize his technical prowess to refine RockMyRun’s mix creation process and help forge strategic partnerships with industry contacts. Audé has created over 100 No.1 Billboard tracks and has worked with Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, One Republic, Coldplay and U2, among many other chart-topping artists.
The RockMyRun catalog hosts hundreds of mixes from DJs around the world, making it easy for users to find their “soulmix” for any workout. Audé will be able to further merge the music and fitness industries with his knowledge alongside the existing team at Rock My World.
“RockMyRun helps people get and stay fit by motivating them, through the combination of science and music, to push through their workouts. Audé will add top quality mixes that are sure to keep users moving and motivated, even during the toughest part of their workout regimen,” said Adam Riggs-Zeigen, Rock My World’s CEO and co-founder. “Music serves many purposes in our lives and I am honored to join a team like Rock My World. I am excited to bring my music to the RockMyRun users and explore the impact it has on people while running and working out,” said Audé, Rock My World’s creative consultant.
Audé has earned a reputation as a master producer and remixer who delivers award-winning results. Audé’s label, Audacious Records, was named Billboard Magazine’s No. 1 Indie Dance Label in 2014 and continues to release more hits in 2015, Audacious Records produced a few No. 1 records in 2014 including “Aftermath (Here We Go)” with Andy Bell (from Erasure), “MAD” with Vassy, and “Take Me Away” with new artist Rokelle.
The app’s myBeat™ Body Driven Music Technology pulls in biometric data like steps, heart rate or pace from smartphones and wearable devices to dynamically adjust the tempo of the music to be in tune with a user’s body, matching the music to a user’s steps or heartbeat. Users also have the choice to set their beats per minute manually. RockMyRun’s curated mixes and myBeat™ Body Driven Music Technology have been proven in a recent study by the University of California San Diego’s EPARC behavioral health lab to boost motivation during a run by up to 35 percent.
Mixes are searchable by genre, BPM, length and lyrics and are rated and commented on by RunRockers – members of the RockMyRun community. This allows for a truly personalized experience that enables all users to find content best suited for their needs.
Audé’s first mix will launch on Thursday, February 19, 2015. For more information on RockMyRun, please visit https://www.rockmyrun.com/freeapp
