This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome direct-to-fan expert Jessie Scoullar (Wicksteedworks.com) and supreme tinkerer Syd Lawrence (Wemakeawesomesh.it) to the show.

We start by chatting about Beats, as the acquisition gets regulatory approval in Europe and Vivendi declares the sale of its 13% share in the company to Apple, Ian Rogers is reportedly going to head both Beats Music and iTunes Radio, what could that mean for the company?

We also chat about Samsung finally introducing a premium tier for Milk (with a twist), Shazam’s Mac app – creepy or cool? – and its new Resonate product, Rhapsody’s mini acquisition spree with Exfm and Soundtracking and what Apple’s acquisition of Swell could mean – do we need more integration between spoken word and music content?

On top of that my guests chat about their latest projects which are very very cool. Syd talks about Basement Jaxx’s Power To The People project that just launched today, allowing users to contribute to the track and remix the contributions that will go towards the release of a charity single – check it out on http://www.powertothepeople.fm.

Jessie chats about her “Which Platform?” report that compares the most prominent direct to fan platforms analysing pretty much every aspect of what they offer so you can make an informed decision. Check out http://www.wicksteedworks.com/report/ for more info and to get a free sample.


And that’s all for this week. I really hope you’ll enjoy the show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!

Ep.55: Tom Giles, CEO at StageBloc, a platform for artists, brands and fans (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on the 1-2-1 show I chat with Tom Giles, the CEO of StageBloc, a platform designed for artist, brands and fans.

It can work as the artist’s official fansite allowing for a wide variety of interactions (including sales), but it can also be used to promote a single release. Stagebloc has already worked the likes of Justin Timberlake (The Tennessee Kids), Kid Rock (Rebel Soldiers), and the Pixies but is available to any band with a free and paid tier.

Ep.7: Tunezy CEO Derrick Fung (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 show I chat with Derrick Fung, founder of the startup Tunezy. The company allows artists to fullfil their fan’s wishes by offering a number of unique experiences which can be anything from be an exclusive after-party to a day at the beach. This help both in strengthening the bond between artist and fan and allowing musicians to tap into a new revenue stream. We talk about the company’s evolution, challenges, future projects and more…
