Mobile music service provider Groove Mobile, the company behind the Sprint Music Store in the US and a slew of others around the world, has forged a worldwide licensing deal with mobile marketing and digital distribution agency Indie Mobile.

The partnership gives Groove Mobile the rights to distribute full-length songs, videos and realtones for some 70,000 indie music tracks. Artists under the new arrangement include
Armand Van Helden, Felix Da Housecat, The Editors, The Pigeon Detectives, Bob Sinclair, Laurent Garnier, Royksopp and Shaggy.

The companies will also join forces to “explore myriad direct-to-consumer opportunities at concerts and other live events, such as full track, off-portal downloads,” Groove Mobile said.
