This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to record the last episode of the year with Darren Hemmings (Motive Unknown). On this show we combine a 2014 year-end recap with some of the news from the past week. We share what we thought were the most interesting (& the most disappointing) news stories of the year and I attempt a 4-minute month-by-month summary.

On the news front we cover MixCloud‘s latest stats as I’m joined by the company’s co-founder Nico Perez, we discuss Beatports’ reported entry in the streaming space, the BBC Music On The Beat conference, Shazam’s app overhaul, Sony’s hack and Snapchat, Bose reportedly working on a music streaming offering and much more.

DMT will resume the first week of January, in the meantime have a great holiday break and ’till next time.

DMT 195: Beats & iTunes, Milk Premium, Shazam, Rhapsody, Swell & more…

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome direct-to-fan expert Jessie Scoullar (Wicksteedworks.com) and supreme tinkerer Syd Lawrence (Wemakeawesomesh.it) to the show.

We start by chatting about Beats, as the acquisition gets regulatory approval in Europe and Vivendi declares the sale of its 13% share in the company to Apple, Ian Rogers is reportedly going to head both Beats Music and iTunes Radio, what could that mean for the company?

We also chat about Samsung finally introducing a premium tier for Milk (with a twist), Shazam’s Mac app – creepy or cool? – and its new Resonate product, Rhapsody’s mini acquisition spree with Exfm and Soundtracking and what Apple’s acquisition of Swell could mean – do we need more integration between spoken word and music content?

On top of that my guests chat about their latest projects which are very very cool. Syd talks about Basement Jaxx’s Power To The People project that just launched today, allowing users to contribute to the track and remix the contributions that will go towards the release of a charity single – check it out on http://www.powertothepeople.fm.

Jessie chats about her “Which Platform?” report that compares the most prominent direct to fan platforms analysing pretty much every aspect of what they offer so you can make an informed decision. Check out http://www.wicksteedworks.com/report/ for more info and to get a free sample.


And that’s all for this week. I really hope you’ll enjoy the show, have a fantastic week and ’till next time!
