This week on Digital Music Trends I chat with Matthew Ogle (This Is My Jam) and Sitar Teli (Connect Ventures). We discuss Rhapsody deciding against using the Echo Nest moving forward, Shazam’s partnership with Juno Records, music piracy on mobile, UK taxes and the closure of a loophole, the Pono’s success, Beats Music’s first (unofficial numbers), Spotify stopping submissions for new desktop client apps, Linkin Park’s new music game via Microsoft’s Projects Spark and much, much more.
And at the end of the show a nice surprise for you all – like in the past two weeks I added two interviews from SXSW, the first being with Kjartan Slette, the Head of Strategy at music streaming service WiMP, and the second with Julien Mitelberg, the CEO at BandsInTown.
You can find all the links to the stories discussed here.
I really hope you enjoy the show, have a great week and ’till next time.
