Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 2:29 PM
It’s interesting to see that Beats will be providing a music streaming service in the near future, and they’re a company who solely focuses on equipment, so it’ll nice to see the new transition they’ll be making into the market, since it seems like online music streaming services seem to be the place to go to look or to listen for new music. I think it’d be cool to see different companies provide services like this, it might ease a lot of tension we have in our music industry today between artist and record labels, if they get involved with new these companies and ideas, as it could be revolutionary the way we perceive music. Artists can also play a huge role in this; after all, it’s their music we’re listening to.

Why distribution partnerships are key in the new digital music economy

Why distribution partnerships are key in the new digital music economy | Music business | Scoop.it

The internet lit up last week with rumours of a new digital musicalliance: west coast-based Beats electronics, famous for headphones and hardware, will partner with AT&T, to support Beats' Daisy, a digital music service that Beats acquired and re-branded. The idea, so go the rumours, is for Beats to affiliate with AT&T's mobile and (presumably) broadband services, leveraging the carrier's distribution clout and marketing potential, and giving Daisy a boost in the increasingly crowded digital music marketplace.
