Trent Reznor and Jimmy Iovine Discuss the New Beats Music Service - Speakeasy - WSJ

Trent Reznor and Jimmy Iovine Discuss the New Beats Music Service - Speakeasy - WSJ | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor has rejoined forces with the head of his old label, Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine, to launch Beats Music, an on-demand music streaming service.
Pierre Priot's insight:

"The key, according to Mr. Iovine:  knowing not just which song a listener will like, but knowing which song should come next."

Or, "who needs a search engine ?"... It seems Reznor & Lovine will fail at beating the streaming industry on one crucial issue: stopping taking their audience as a bunch of passive morons waiting to be fed their daily dose of viral musical mediocrity.

Who needs labels? Lee Morrison, Believe Digital answers | | midemblogmidemblog | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"In today’s music business it is possible for artists to find success with or without a label. Both options work, but I would strongly argue that artists often need the guidance of a label to stay on track and to progress in their careers. They are also invaluable for contacts, investments, and to give a release some much-needed hype – if the label has a certain edgy appeal and cultural status that is."

Pierre Priot's insight:

The question should be: 'what is to be expected from a record label today?'

Rapper Coolio savages 'drones' of music industry | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Rap star Coolio has launched a savage attack on the music industry, accusing record labels of engineering a cover-up of decent music.

The Grammy Award-winner says talented musicians are being held back in favour of "drones" by an industry that cares only about money.

Greg Hersey's curator insight, March 9, 2013 12:59 PM

Rapper Coolio gives his opinion on today's music industry saying "It's creating an endless supply of drones and robotic idiots who are just driven by pounding bass and flashing lights.". I agree with with some of his points because I too believe that alot of todays mainstream music is very generic.

Grizzly Bear thinks they need traditional radio to break big. And only a major label can really deliver that, at least right now. Meanwhile, even major label refugees like Trent Reznor are crawling back to the machine. Here's the moment when Reznor realized that his post-major, DIY audience was ultimately insular and limiting. He recently inked a deal with Columbia (Sony Music Entertainment).

The conceptual end, at least, according to streaming service's CEO Axel Dauchez. By Stuart Dredge
Pierre Priot's insight:

That's right. The end of music downloads. Axel, some may think you're only fooling yourself, but you could actually be right. At least, the end of downloads for MOR music may occur soon. 
But educated music lovers are keepers: vinyl diggers, mp3 storage maniacs... music download will remain an elite thing.
