Blazetrak, set to launch in September, offered a sneak preview of their new service last night at the office of AMP3PR located in Manhattan's Flatiron District neighborhood.

The service, founded by Corey Stanford, Ronald A. Harrison, Nathaniel Casey, and McKinley Joyner III, plans to offer users direct access to the "world's top professionals in the areas of music, screen/stage, fashion/design, sports, business," and other areas.  Stanford is based in the company's NYC office.

The demo which the founders provided was of a fictional young woman interested in having feedback on a song which she had written.  Using Blazetrak, "she" was able to upload the song for a fee paid by credit card to be reviewed by record producer Big Boi and receive both written and video feedback from him within 30 days.  Big Boi, as it turns out, is actually signed up to offer users feedback when the service goes live.  He and other professional participants receive payment for reviewing user-submitted materials such as this "artist"'s song.
