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.
