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.


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