This week on Digital Music Trends a SXSW special recorded with a few attendees who took some time to fill me in on what’s going on at this year’s event. We discuss what’s happening in Austin, the latest from their respective companies and we also cover this week’s news.

And it was a pleasure to welcome to the show James Hamlin from WhoSampled, Darryl Ballantyne from LyricFind, Kevin Breuner from CD Baby, Paul Anthony from Rumblefish and Mark Steiner from Gigsalad.

We also chat about Kendrick Lamar’s Spotify streaming record, the Empire soundtrack taking the N.1. spot on the Billboard 200 thanks to streaming, Rhapsody’s Twitter feature and Rdio’s new social features, YouTube for artists and much more…

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