App gamers might be no strangers to the hit virtual piano game Magic Tiles 3, where you tap the black tiles and avoid the white tiles to match the beat of popular tunes. The game has recently been revamped with the futuristic vibrant visuals of the EDM hit-maker TheFatRat. In an effort to support their partner artists, Amanotes developed a special program to include exclusive branded visual content to promote artists’ songs in their games.
Collaborating with a big name like TheFatRat is among the music-tech pioneer’s newest partnership announcements. Amanotes has already had licensing deals from the biggest music publishing houses such as Universal Music Group, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and Warner Chappell Music. Recently, Amanotes has partnered with YG Entertainment to bring famous K-Pop songs from BLACKPINK, BIG BANG, and iKON to their apps. The company plans to launch more exclusive artist-focused programs in its music ecosystem as more opportunities grow for the hyper-casual category of gaming apps.

As Amanotes strives to connect music makers and music listeners, we continuously innovate our products, extend partnership activities, and welcome the boldest ideas to transform the interactive music landscape.”
TheFatRat has posted on his channel a short video of him playing Magic Tiles 3 with his hit tunes “Unity”. EDM fans were excited as the motion of tapping and holding to the beat gives them a “I’m making the song myself” feeling.
EDM lovers can play their favorite TheFatRat tunes with special in-level effects. Users can now access the full library of the German EDM star via the Album section, featuring top songs such as Unity, Monody, The Calling, etc. Players can also access Match mode to battle with friends or participate in special Treasure Hunt events.
