DMT 162: Beyoncé (and more Beyoncé ), the most influential stories of 2013 and music apps innovation

This week on Digital Music Trends I had the pleasure to welcome Glenn Peoples (Billboard), Darren Hemmings (Motive Unknown) and Michael Roffman (Consequence of Sound). We chat about Beyoncé’s surprise album release and its potential impact on the industry, discuss the news stories that influenced 2013 and may also be relevant through 2014 and finally talk about the future of innovation for music apps and services using the iTunes best-of 2013 list as a springboard.

Quite how we managed to stretch these three subjects to well over 1 hour and 10 minutes is beyond me but it was a really fun show – you’ll have to tune in to figure it out!

This is the last “news” show for 2013 but there will be a couple of specials coming in the next two of weeks: an interview with The Echo Nest’s CEO and a “DMT around the world in 2013” show with snippets of some of the best interviews I recorded this year so look out for them!

Have a fantastic week, happy holidays and ’till next time.

Ep.9: Oleg Fomenko, CEO at Bloom.fm (DMT 1-2-1)

This week on DMT 1-2-1 an interview with Oleg Fomenko, CEO of Bloom.fm, recorded at Liverpool Sound City.

Bloom.fm is a music streaming service launched in January in the UK as an iOS app. The service introduces the idea of tiered, flexible pricing when it comes to consuming streaming music on a mobile device. So far consumers that wanted to access on-demand streaming via their smartphone had to pay the usual £10 per month for unlimited access, Bloom.fm lowers that barrier introducing £1 and £5 subscriptions which give users access to – respectively – 20 or 200 tracks that can be stored on the device and swapped at any time.  In the interview we chat about how Bloom got started, the challenges on the design and licensing front, the issue of discovery, the importance of a flexible pricing model to bring streaming to mainstream audiences.
