DMT 165: Gracenote, Rap Genius, Beats, CES, Gaga & more!

This week on Digital Music Trends I chat with Martyn Davies (SendgridMusicHackDay) and Ben Graham (StrategyEye). In a pretty tech-focused show we discuss Gracenote’s sale to Tribune and the Gracenote Rhythm announcement, we also chat about Google giving Rap Genius a slap on the wrist, Beats Music’s latest rumors, CES gadgets, Gaga lashing out over Artpop and much more!

You can find the shownotes for this week’s show here:

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