This week it was a real pleasure to welcome to the show Nico Perez (co-founder, Mixcloud) and Olivier de Simone (music industry consultant).

We start by chatting about the IFPI’s Digital Music Report 2015, which includes some interesting figures on the evolution of the digital music market. We also address Apple’s revamped Music app in the iOS 8.4 beta, the renewed focus on exclusives for music streaming services – – a good or a bad thing?, Spotify’s new round, Guitar Hero’s resurgence in a “live” setting, the UK’s vinyl chart, UMG’s 11.5m settlement in downloads royalties lawsuit, the latest from Mixcloud and much, much more.


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

Ep.37: Jesse Lakes, CEO at GeoRiot (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 show an interview with Jesse Lakes, CEO of the company GeoRiot. The company allows anyone to create a global buy link across iTunes and Amazon, making it easy for bands for example to post one link for their digital album that will work across the board no matter where the fans are located. Georiot also takes care of the affiliate marketing side of things by allowing those clicks to be tracked internationally and accurately.

On the show we focus on the potential uses for the music industry but Georiot can be used for anything else including Apps, eBooks, Movies and thanks to their Amazon integration even physical products.


Here’s what how the company describes its process on www.georiot.com:
“First, we determine where your visitor is coming from.
Second, we localize your link to reference the right product ID in the right international store for that specific visitor. This ensures that they don’t see an error and helps you close the sale.
Third, we wrap up your link with the correct affiliate tracking to ensure you get full credit for the traffic you’re sending to the e-tailer. We’ll even help you sign up for the corresponding affiliate programs to make sure the revenue you earn is the revenue you receive.”

Affiliate is still something many labels/bands don’t implement at all or properly on their own sites and they may be missing out on a meaningful revenue stream.

I really hope you enjoy this 1-2-1, have a great week and ’till next time!

Ep.8: Michela Magas, Stromatolite & Music Tech Fest – DMT 1-2-1

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 show Michela Magas, co-founder of Stromatolite and founder of Music Tech Fest.
Stromatolite is a design research lab started in 2000. The company was involved with iTunes in the early days, worked on concepts with a number of brands then moved to academic research-based projects for innovation primarily in the music space. We talk about the importance of research and how sometimes business models emerge as a new technology gains mass adoption in ways that were not foreseeable before.
Stromatolite has been working with a variety of companies including CUEsongs and has generated a spin-off in the form of Sonaris Systems which is an audio analysis tool that helps match a specific part of a piece of music with a similar section of another track – based on musical phrases rather than an entire song.
We also talk about Music Tech Fest which started in 2012 as a way to bring together technology, music, industry and consumers in a festival of music ideas. Music Tech Fest takes place in London between the 17th to the 19th of May and is free to attend, get your free ticket on musictechefest.eventbrite.co.uk/.
