This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Theda Sandiford, VP of Digital Marketing at Republic record, and Dave Haynes, Head of Business Development at Makeshift.io, to the show.

We chat about: – The latest figures released by Nielsen Soundscan on US music sales for the first 6 months of 2014

– The evolution of MCNs and Rightster’s acquisition of Base79 for £50 million
– Ariana Grande’s campaign which recently drove over a billion Twitter impressions in 24 without spending any money on advertising
– Makeshift.io and Dave’s interest in tech startups related to music creation
– Taylor Swift’s editorial on the future of the music industry, reactions?
– Samsung pushing hard on Milk with slick advert, reveals the app reached 2 million downloads
– RapGenius closing a deal with Warner/Chappell: with all three major publishers signed, what next?


Thanks as always for tuning in and I hope you enjoyed the show, have a great week and ’till next time!

Subscribe to DMT’s weekly newsletter on http://bit.ly/dmtlist

This week on Digital Music Trends two great guests: Stephen O’Reilly (CMO at Shuffler.fm) and Stuart Dredge (Journalist at Music Ally, The Guardian) as well as an appearance by Spencer Hickman (Death Waltz Records, UK Coordinator of Record Store Day).

This week on the show we talk about Beat Music’s introduction of in-app payments on its iOS app and the recent articles suggesting the service hasn’t had a flying start, the reports of Shazam being integrated into iOS 8 and what that would mean for both the company and Apple, the reports on Record Store Day 2014 which was very successful but raised a few criticisms from the independent label community, the new lawsuit against Pandora from majors and the RIAA as they seek to get compensated for pre-1972 recordings, Samsung announcing 380k Milk app downloads but considering a premium tier, Rock in Rio’s plans for the first Las Vegas edition and much, much more. This weeks’ show notes with links to all the stories are here.


I really hope you enjoy the show, if you did subscribe to the channel or to the newsletter on bit.ly/dmtlist, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
