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.

Please send any feedback to contact@digitalmusictrends.com, 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

DMT 111 – Streaming Windows, Digital Groceries and Fairness

This week on Digital Music Trends I’m joined by Darren Hemmings (@mr_trick) and Sam Taylor (@saaaaaam). We talk about:

– AC/DC landing on iTunes (finally) and the parallels to hold-outs now happening in the streaming world including Rihanna’s latest album release

–  digital groceries, as UK supermarket giant Tesco plans to integrate recently acquired music streaming service We7 into its video distribution brand Blinkbox, discussing the role large-scale retailers can play in this area and whether the fact that they don’t actually need to make a profit from these services could damage stand-alone music and video distribution companies.

– the latest on the Internet Radio Fairness act including some of the numbers unveiled by songwriters in regards to royalties received by Pandora

– finally we do a quick overview of the music industry events happening in the first part of 2013 including Eurosonic, Midem, SFmusictech, SXSW and the Great Escape.
