DMT 199: Live at Berlin Music Week – Revenues, Discoverability, Distribution, Transparency

If you’d like to receive DMT’s weekly newsletter sign up on http://bit.ly/dmtlist. This week’s show is brought to you by Play MPE┬« on http://www.plaympe.com.

This week I recorded Digital Music Trends live at Berlin Music Week 2014 and it was a pleasure to be joined by Michael Krause, Managing Director GSA (Germany Switzerland Austria) at Deezer, Janine Wuelker, Strategic Marketing and Digital Media Services at Finetunes , Phiona Okumu, founder of Afripop and Benjamin Lebrave, founder of Akwaaba Music.

This show combines a few news items with a look at some of the most interesting topics being addressed at the Berlin Music Week Conference.

We chat about the decline in album sales in the US, the situation in Germany, the issue of discoverability on digital services from an artist’s perspective, startup hubs in Germany and in Africa, This Is My Jam’s new Song Graph, the issues of transparency and fairness in digital music today, CD Baby’s Free service, YouTube’s new donation button and more.

Hosting this episode in front of a live audience was a great experience and I’d like to thank the organizers of the Berlin Music Week Conference for making it happen.


I really hope you enjoy the show and ’till next time.

DMT 119: Midem 2013, The Full Summary

This Week on Digital Music Trends we take a break from the traditional weekly panel based on the week’s news to showcase some of the interviews I recorded at Midem 2013.

The first part features some of the start-ups I met, so we’ll check out Spins.fm, Pulselocker, JoyTunes and Yasound.

In the second part we move onto more established players and here I’ll feature snippets from conversations I had with Lang Lang, Deezer’s CEO Axel Dauchez, Chris Wiltsee from Bandpage and Jez Bell fom Omnifone.

The third part is DMT’s very own Direct To Fan and Crowdfunding camp — where we hear from Pledge Music CEO Benji Rogers, Kevin Wortis from label services company Girlie Action, Emily White from Whitesmith Entertainment and David Balfour from Finetunes.

Drawing closer to the end we hear a few bits of news announced on the show by companies such as UrTurn, Musixmatch and Musicmetric.

Finally DMT 119 includes a snippet of my chat with Martyn Davies on Midem Hack Day and it ends with the thoughts of journalists, analysts, digital experts on the conference and the relevance of Midem in 2013.

I hope you enjoy the show and please email any feedback to digitalmusictrends@gmail.com
