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 Lee Knife, the Executive Director at the Digital Media Association (DiMA – digmedia.org) and Emmanuel Legrand, US Editor at Music Week.

On the show we continue the discussion started last week around the “Copyright and the Music Marketplace” released by the US Copyright Office, this time focusing on some of the criticisms brought forward by DiMA.

Emmanuel and I then go on to chat about the news of the week including Zane Lowe’s move to Apple and what that means for the approach to curation of the upcoming iTunes streaming service, songwriters voicing their concerns around royalties in Sweden and elsewhere, Pandora’s new Artist Audio Messaging feature, Vessel’s deal with Universal Music for video exclusives, UMG’s investment to make sure the recording facilities at Abbey Road Studios remain state of the art for decades to come and much more.


I really hope you enjoy the show,

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Jay Frank (Digsin) and Ben Sisario (New York Times) to the show.

The first part of the show is devoted to a discussion around Zoe Keating’s blog from last week, which highlighted some important issues on the terms imposed by YouTube on independent artists if they want to continue to monetise their content on the platform.

We also talk about Spotify’s coup in securing a partnership with Sony PlayStation that will see the company scrap its Music Unlimited Service (that never really took off…), the positive and negative aspects of the new Touch Preview feature on iOS, the decline of the Australian music market which registered another 10% drop in 2014, iHeartRadio’s latest numbers and Pandora’s next move, Sly Stone’s royalties lawsuit, transparency in the music industry and much more.


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