DMT 117: The One With MySpace, Redigi, Mega, Sweden, Fandalism, HMV…

This week on Digital Music Trends we cover The Most News Ever. Only kidding, but it’s a hefty number of stories and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Stuart Dredge and Darren Hemmings.

This week we talk about: 
- the public launch of MySpace, Justin Timberlake’s involvement and the Merlin rights issue.
- Redigi’s upcoming European launch, legal implications and potential repercussions on the industry (if anyone can be bothered to use it)
- Kim Dotcom’s launch of Mega amongst much fanfare, but what’s the potential piracy impact?
- digital distribution price wars as Fandalism offers first free and then cheap iTunes, Spotify and Google Play uploads
- the KLF releases slipping through checks and getting released without permission on iTunes and Spotify
- flexibility price of streaming subscriptions as Rhapsody launches a $5 tier tied to the MetroPCS carrier
- the astonishing story of music sales in Sweden where growth is in the double digits, and is anything happening out there applicable in the UK or is it simply a cultural difference
- a quick update on HMV, as the group starts to

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

DMT 116: Beats ‘n Daisy, Amazon’s Auto-Rip and HMV’s fate

This is a busy news week on DMT but thankfully I’m joined by David Emery (Beggars), Will Mills (Shazam) and Duncan Geere (DuncanGeere.com) to help make sense of it all. We start out by talking about Beats by Dre and their recent announcement of project Daisy (with Topspin’s Ian Rogers as CEO), then we move on to talking about the launch of Amazon’s Auto-Rip service and of course we talk about the UK’s largest music retail chain HMV going into administration. We also cover Vimeo and new streaming service Bloom.fm.

I hope you enjoy the show, you can find links to the stories we talked about here.

Have a great week and ’till next time.
