This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Jimmy Chamberlin (CEO, LiveOne & original drummer, Smashing Pumpkins) and Brian Felsen (CEO, AdRev) to the show.

We open with the launch of YouTube Music Key, though it can be called a “low-key debut” as it’s invite-only for now (drum roll).

We also cover the breaking news that Apple may integrate Beats into iOS as early as March 2015 and then discuss Gracenote’s Entourage, Bandcamp considering a subscription feature, Uber’s partnership with Spotify, BitTorrent Bundles opening up to everyone and much more.

Finally we hear from Jimmy and Brian about their respective companies, LiveOne and Adrev, so this is a show you shouldn’t miss!



Have a fantastic week and ’till next time.

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Jessie Scoullar (@WicksteedWorks) and Matthew Hawn (@jukevox).

Although we recorded a few hours before the announcement of YouTube Music Key (that’s one for next week) we do cover YouTube’s deal Merlin and ponder whether that may convince more indies to jump on board.

We obviously have to chat about the other big story which is Taylor Swift’s stance on streaming and Daniel Ek’s response on the Spotify blog.

During the show we also cover the launch of the MTV Trax app as a partnership between MTV and MusicQbed, Kobalt’s CEO talking about transparency, SoundCloud’s deal with Warner, the BMI reassuring Pandora that the major publishers will stay on as clients, SoundHound’s redesigned app, the new Composed classical music streaming service, Amanda Palmer’s “The Art of Asking” and much more…

I really hope you enjoy this episode, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!

DMT 206: Pandora’s AMP, Deezer & Stitcher, iTunes downloads, TIDAL, ECJ, Taylor Swift’s 1989.

This week on Digital Music Trends a skeleton crew due to flight delays for our third guest, but we managed well as I chat with Barbara Hallama (Hallama.org) about Pandora’s AMP Artist Marketing platform, the decline of iTunes downloads and Apple’s rumored lower-cost subscription, Deezer buying Stitcher – now that’s what I call an interesting disruption, TIDAL launching in the US and UK (we also do a quick demo & talk about their questionable promo video), Taylor Swift’s release of 1989, which could sell over 1m copies and is steering clear of streaming services, the European Court of Justice ruling on video embedding and much more.


I really hope you enjoy the show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
