Create awareness for the Sony Audio Extra Bass line among the 15-25-year-old target group on a global scale for 2017.

Spinnin’ partnered up with Sony as part of the campaign for their Extra Bass product line. Sony wanted to reach a young audience globally and was looking for a relevant partner in the music industry to help with the promotion. The promotion had to feel natural and was to be presented in a credible way to the Spinnin’ fans. The overall idea was to use five releases of five different artists to promote the Sony Extra Bass product line. The artists involved are Lucas & Steve, Quintino, Mike Williams, VINAI and Sam Feldt. With this promotion, Sony was integrated in the process of the release in multiple ways.
Before every release, Spinnin’ posted a teaser video on their YouTube channel with more than 21 million subscribers. This 30-sec video is placed on the YouTube channel of Spinnin’ two to three weeks prior to the official releases. In this video, Spinnin’ integrated the Sony Extra Bass product through product placement. On social media, the artist and Spinnin’ Records were used to promote the video with the hashtag #SonyExtraBass.
Every release got its own official video on YouTube. The official video was uploaded to the YouTube channel of Spinnin’, with more than 21 million subscribers, again with Sony Extra Bass product placement. These videos were all shot in Miami and every video tells a different story. The video is promoted online via artist and Spinnin’ Records social with the hashtag #SonyExtraBass.
To finish promotion, Spinnin’ and Sony set up an Extra Bass Remix contest for every release. Fans got the chance to remix the official release and win Sony Extra Bass prizes. Again, this was promoted via artist and Spinnin’ Records social channels.
With the campaign millions of people saw the videos through YouTube or the Spinnin’ Records YouTube channel. The total social reach of the campaign is 7,295,000 and on YouTube the videos got a total of 14,948,000 combined views!
