DMT 124: The SXSW ’13 interviews

Digital Music Trends reports from SXSW 2013 with an hour-long summary show of all the interviews recorded during an 8-day stay in Austin, Texas.

In DMT 124 representatives from companies/organisations like 7digital, Lyricfind, SoundHound, ONErpm, Sperry Media, Republic Records, CD Baby, Jamplify, Givit, MediaNet, Songza, Soundexchange, VH1, Pollack Media, Livestream, George Washington Law School, The Library of Congress, talk about some of the most pressing issues in the digital music space.

The show is organised loosely by subject, covering the challenges of international expansion, monetization and sustainability of digital music services, music publishing, lyrics, the best tools for artists, mobile strategy, the streaming space, radio (both traditional and web), legal issues around transformative works and digital audio archiving.

I hope you enjoy this special episode of DMT, as you can probably tell it was a hell of an edit! And a special thanks goes to all the companies that took part. You can check out the complete SXSW interviews by visiting the YouTube playlist or the Soundcloud Set.


From next week the regular DMT show will be back on as usual.  Thanks for tuning in, have a great week and ’till next time!

DMT 123: A Good Day To Stream Hard

This week on Digital Music Trends I’m joined by Karim Fanous (Music Ally) and Syd Laurence (Wemakeawesomesh.it, Twilio). It’s certainly a good day and a good year to stream hard as the big players put their chips on the table: with Beats raising $60m for Daisy, Tesco planning a Blinkbox Music rollout, Google bringing YouTube’s weight to the table and the usual Apple question marks a streaming war is on its way to your desktop/mobile.Also on the show we discuss the issue of fragmentation in the streaming space and how to facilitate inter-operability, music bookmarking services and the EMI innovation challenge.

DMT will be reporting from SXSW next week with a bunch on interviews and photos/videos from the event, be sure to check out digitalmusictrends.com/sxsw from this Saturday.
