This week it was a pleasure to welcome Sophie Goossens (lawyer at August & Debouzy) and Darren Hemmings (founder of Motive Unknown) to the show.

On this penultimate instalment of our weekly appointments we start by chatting about a DMT all-time-favourite topic: Pandora’s quest for profitability and we also mention the latest CRB rate-setting procedures.

In other news, another round of Tidal-ness as we talk about Jay-Z’s tweets and wonder: should the company just stop with the hollow PR talk and come back in a couple of months with a more substantial plan?

We also discuss the EU Copyright Directive and the Digital Single Market initiative as PoliticoEU leaked some of the talking points of the upcoming announcement on the matter.

Finally we chat about live music subscriptions startup Jukely, as the company closes an $8m round and is set to expand to more cities.


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

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Darren Hemmings (Motive Unknown) and Matthew Hawn (Product & Strategy consultant) to discuss the latest news in the music tech space. The show also includes a catch-up with Turner Kirk and Jeannie Yang from Smule.

On the show we discuss Madonna’s Meerkat premiere and beyond that the potential of apps like Meerkat and Periscope for artists, we address the latest news on the TIDAL front, Omnifone’s partnership with Samsung, Apple’s EU issues, the new Concord Bicycle Group and Seatgeek raising $62m (& what’s happening in the ticketing space?).

I also chat with Smule about the company’s work with artists (both established and up-and-coming), the latest video-based features, the internationalisation of their catalogue and the latest developments in the music gaming space which appears to be heating up right now.

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Chandler Coyle (Music Geek Services, Berklee), Mark Frieser (Syncsummit) to chat about the week’s news. The show also features an interview with Joel T. Jordan from Synchtank.

Inevitably we open the show by chatting extensively about TIDAL’s press conference. Just 4 days after the (in)famous event the tide seems to have turned against the company given the many obvious issues with the service.

We discuss the upcoming Syncsummit London event, the integration of Spotify into the Playstation and what the console market means for music subscriptions and finally Coachella’s renewed partnership with YouTube to livestream the festival.

The show also incorporates an interview with Joel T. Jordan, the founder of the company Synchtank, specialised in online catalogue management & licensing software for publishers, labels and other industry professionals.


I really hope you enjoy this week’s podcast, have a great week and ’till next time!
