DMT 174: Echo Nest and Spotify, Pono, MILK + interviews with Spotify and OpenAura

A live show! Digital Music Trends 174 was recorded live at SXSW 2014 with Brian Zisk (SFMusicTech), Jim Carroll (Irish Times) and Kevin Breuner (CD Baby). We chat about Spotify’s acquisition of the Echo Nest, Neil Young launching the Pono as a Kickstarter, Samsung launching MILK and Balcony.tv’s acquisition by The Orchard. At the end of the show I added two interviews recorded here at SXSW, one with Sachin Doshi, Spotify’s head of development and analysis, and one with Kevin Arnold, founder of OpenAura.

DMT’s March coverage is brought to you by Omnifone and MusicGraph, we thank them for their support of the show, it would not be happening without them so go and check them out.

I really hope you enjoy this week’s show and check out all the coverage of SXSW on sxsw.digitalmusictrends.com. Have a great week and ‘till next time!

DMT 111 – Streaming Windows, Digital Groceries and Fairness

This week on Digital Music Trends I’m joined by Darren Hemmings (@mr_trick) and Sam Taylor (@saaaaaam). We talk about:

– AC/DC landing on iTunes (finally) and the parallels to hold-outs now happening in the streaming world including Rihanna’s latest album release

–  digital groceries, as UK supermarket giant Tesco plans to integrate recently acquired music streaming service We7 into its video distribution brand Blinkbox, discussing the role large-scale retailers can play in this area and whether the fact that they don’t actually need to make a profit from these services could damage stand-alone music and video distribution companies.

– the latest on the Internet Radio Fairness act including some of the numbers unveiled by songwriters in regards to royalties received by Pandora

– finally we do a quick overview of the music industry events happening in the first part of 2013 including Eurosonic, Midem, SFmusictech, SXSW and the Great Escape.
