One thought on “DMT 159: Spotify, Goldieblox,, Soundrop, The Echo Nest, Rdio & CMT”

  1. I think that the Beastie Boys were quite nice about the whole viral thing, it seems like it really got into a gray area there but one part is clear Goldie Blox is the winner, 12 million views and even more publicity from the fight.

    Also wanted to note that Karim’s post on investment in the music sector was incredibly helpful and was one of the rare articles this year that contained nothing but relevant information. Thanks Andrea for adding the link to the show notes!
