Also on the show we discuss TIDAL’s slide the iOS apps chart, Guvera announcing reaching 10m users, the value of dance music in the US estimated to be $1.9bn, Spotify’s advertising growth and new publishing appointment and finally the incredible performance of the Furious 7 soundtrack and a question, why the resurgence of OSTs over the past couple of years?

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a pleasure to welcome Chandler Coyle (Music Geek Services, Berklee), Mark Frieser (Syncsummit) to chat about the week’s news. The show also features an interview with Joel T. Jordan from Synchtank.

Inevitably we open the show by chatting extensively about TIDAL’s press conference. Just 4 days after the (in)famous event the tide seems to have turned against the company given the many obvious issues with the service.

We discuss the upcoming Syncsummit London event, the integration of Spotify into the Playstation and what the console market means for music subscriptions and finally Coachella’s renewed partnership with YouTube to livestream the festival.

The show also incorporates an interview with Joel T. Jordan, the founder of the company Synchtank, specialised in online catalogue management & licensing software for publishers, labels and other industry professionals.


I really hope you enjoy this week’s podcast, have a great week and ’till next time!

This week on Digital Music Trends a packed show as I welcome Richard Busch, attorney at King & Ballow (who represented the Marvin Gaye estate in the recent suit), Joe Conyers, VP of Technology Downtown Music Publishing and Jim Carroll, journalist at the Irish Times to the show.

We start by talking about “Blurred Lines” and the jury finding against Pharrell and Robin Thicke who are to pay $7.4 million to the Marvin Gaye estate for infringing on the copyright of “Got to give it up”. First up we hear the Gaye estate attorney who talks us through some key issues of this trial and then we comment on its potential repercussions.

On the show we also tackle McDonald’s faux pas with the band Ex Cops and subsequent backtracking, Rock Band’s return – can console music games make a comeback?, Bjork’s exhibition at MOMA which from the reviews appears to be a tech #fail, the German music industry’s 2014 results, Spotify’s desktop tweaks, the Songwriter Equity Act, Kobalty’s new round and quite a few tips from our guests about SXSW.



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