This band is scamming Spotify into funding their upcoming tour

This band is scamming Spotify into funding their upcoming tour | yaHeard's Rule 4081 | Scoop.it

The Ann Arbor, Michigan based band decided to tour on an entirely free circuit, and to afford hosting free gigs for fans, came up with the idea for Sleepify, an album they’re urging fans to stream on repeat while they’re asleep. If you stream the album for 8 hours, that’s 800 listens. And while at $0.005 that amounts to just $4, the idea is still incredibly clever.

Being able to stream your favorite TV shows, Movies, and Music makes it easier to get your favorite sources of entertainment for free from legitmate companies rather than piracy.

MizWalidah's insight:

When I was starting in the business deciding which Performance Rights Org to affiliate myself with was a matter of who catered to the independent or who favored one genre over another. ASCAP was about the big players on radio, where as BMI did better with college radio. BMI, according to some insiders, favored country, rock or pop as oppose to urban (race issues within the industry is for an entirely different post or book, rather). Now it seems technology may neutralize this strategy. Technology may allow for licensing and performance royalties to be collected directly from venue to artist, API or possibly a centralized site or app.

 

Just as Spotify has centralized P2P sharing, arguably in favor of the labels, a new start up may centralize performance licensing.  Unlike Spotify, this may be a good thing for the independent if royalties are not compromised in the shift, as they have been with Spotify. I write this with dampened hope because currently the PROs  collect say roughly 30cents for every radio play of a song where as Spotify collects a fraction of a fraction of that for every stream.

The perfect introductin for this forum: An important tool to electronic musicans and hip hop musicians is youtube! It allows these artists to affordably find rare music that is shared on the internet by vinyl enthusiest.

The music is used often used as samples to make new music!

this will be a good way to get out there and get hurd!!

Mateo Barragán's curator insight, February 16, 10:18 PM

After the success of streaming companies such as Spotify and Pandora, YouTube it's finally making its move. YouTube is right now the largest depository on streaming media, however it doesn't charge its users. By launching a music streaming service, YouTube will definitely have an impact in the music streaming industry.

Why is the goal always to provide to as many people as possible. This creates a monopolized market. Let others address the economic and marketing needs of the independents. Independents are not the priority of spotify's bottom line. So why yank our chain. Or said better, the music market is saturated to the degree that independents can't see the forest for the trees or possibly a new frontier that better suits their needs.
