DMT 215: CES Music Gadgets, Deezer’s Muve, Spotify growth, Iceland Music Export

This week on Digital Music Trends I chat with Vickie Nauman (CrossBorderWorks Consulting) who tells me all about the most exciting music-related gadgets she found on the show floor at CES in Las Vegas.

We also cover the two biggest news of the week, Deezer’s acquisition of Muve Music and Spotify reaching 15 million paid subscribers.

Finally on this episode an interview recorded in Groningen during Eurosonic with Siggi (Sigtryggur Baldursson), the MD of Iceland Music Export. Iceland is the focus country at 2015’s edition of Eurosonic and we discuss Icelanding acts, the live and recorded music markets as well as Iceland Airwaves.

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

DMT 111 – Streaming Windows, Digital Groceries and Fairness

This week on Digital Music Trends I’m joined by Darren Hemmings (@mr_trick) and Sam Taylor (@saaaaaam). We talk about:

– AC/DC landing on iTunes (finally) and the parallels to hold-outs now happening in the streaming world including Rihanna’s latest album release

–  digital groceries, as UK supermarket giant Tesco plans to integrate recently acquired music streaming service We7 into its video distribution brand Blinkbox, discussing the role large-scale retailers can play in this area and whether the fact that they don’t actually need to make a profit from these services could damage stand-alone music and video distribution companies.

– the latest on the Internet Radio Fairness act including some of the numbers unveiled by songwriters in regards to royalties received by Pandora

– finally we do a quick overview of the music industry events happening in the first part of 2013 including Eurosonic, Midem, SFmusictech, SXSW and the Great Escape.
