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.
Please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org, also you can now leave audio and video voicemails on the Skype account digitalmusictrends, feel free to have your say on any of the issues covered in the show and who knows you may end up on it…
Have a great week and ’till next time
