This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to record the last episode of the year with Darren Hemmings (Motive Unknown). On this show we combine a 2014 year-end recap with some of the news from the past week. We share what we thought were the most interesting (& the most disappointing) news stories of the year and I attempt a 4-minute month-by-month summary.

On the news front we cover MixCloud‘s latest stats as I’m joined by the company’s co-founder Nico Perez, we discuss Beatports’ reported entry in the streaming space, the BBC Music On The Beat conference, Shazam’s app overhaul, Sony’s hack and Snapchat, Bose reportedly working on a music streaming offering and much more.

DMT will resume the first week of January, in the meantime have a great holiday break and ’till next time.

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Glenn Peoples (Sr. Editorial Analyst, Billboard), Andy Malt (Editor, CMU) and Mandar Thakur (COO, Times Music India).
