Wind-Up Records has licensed its entire catalog to the Verizon Wireless V Cast Music service.

The V Cast full-song download service to date has struck deals with the four major labels and digital aggregators of independent music like IODA and The Orchard. A direct deal with an independent label like Wind-Up is a first, and one that gives hope to the other larger independent labels that don't use digital aggregators but are interested in establishing their content in mobile channels.

The V Cast Music catalog consists of about 2 million tracks, sold each for $2. The Wind-Up deal also includes ringtones and ringback tones.
