Problem with stream services is that the offer is more for the user end than the artist. I use to be amaze by ''the long Tail'' theory (back then) keeping in mid that being refer could get you known and probably famous. But stil there is just too much offering, too much artist. I am not saying that the old model was great (in fact, i am happy about the changes), just that artist are getting less and less attractive because they are repeating what we already seen and heard. We are going through an amazing changing curve, but we somehow need the ''new MTV'' that will change the way we see and feel music.
