General info about investing in your favorite artist and how artist get paid from streams
Akeem Scott's curator insight, February 23, 8:04 PM
For the question of the the article, " Would you invest your own music into your favorite artist music," I would say no I wouldn't. even if the artist are making that amount of money on these music programs, They are still making a lot of money off of them. Not to mention this is only one of many source of income for these artist.

i Think its import for people to start investing in artist because it could boos the whole industry and  could help boos the artist and if they blow up then the money is double or even better which just creates a better environment

Independent artist and labels no long have to use distribution service to upload to Spotify

This article in my opinion is very interesting and formative on Spotifiy’s big move, with the benefit of both artists and fans as their target. I believe this will greatly open the market up to some hidden talent without the need of a record company . 
The surge of the article has provided many helpful insights and statistics which help wit the liability of the information, They also showed much knowledge in the marketing field of the industry , this assured me that they are experienced and reliable .
But i dont believe i have heard the news source before.
Alex Redman's curator insight, January 25, 11:35 PM
I think this is a good step forward for the music industry because it is helping to lay the foundation for taking the power back from corporations and directly into the hands of the artists. This will allow the artists to distribute their own music easier.

Authority: The article is written by Tim Ingham. When you click on his name, it offers at least 50+ articles written by him and published by the website. Although there is no bio available, I believe he still maintains credibility by the amount of articles dating back years that discuss news in the entertainment and music industry.

Objectivity: The article was entirely objective, focusing on statistics and facts for information.

Accuracy: The article is filled with correct embedded links that referenced each assertion made by the author.

Currency: The article was created in September 20, 2018. I believe this is within a relevant time period for the topic.

I believe this is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals.
Jarard Kenneth's curator insight, July 24, 9:00 PM
This is article is extremely interesting. Although this is have been in beta since 2018, the attempt is to have something similar to SoundCloud, CD Baby, etc. Personally, I believe this is a good move for Spotify, in reference to being a consumer. It's unique per se because of the steps needed to have your music on that DSP. If it's anything similar to a SoundCloud, it's a takes away from rarity. However, if this happens to move past beta mode, then other DSPs like Apple Music and Google Music, may follow suit. Although Spotify will not be charging an upfront fee to place music on their platform, the other issue is how exactly will artist generate money, when they are practically getting fractions of pennies per spin.

This source appears to be reliable. It's based on out London, and has plethora of followers via Facebook and LinkedIn. Created by artist Tim Ingham. MusicBusiness Worldwide has been around since 2015. One of the contributing editors, Rhian Jones, had a live interview with Empire founder and owner Ghazi Shami.

Music Obtained Illegally.

Music piracy is part of current events in the music industry. Piracy is illegally obtaining music without paying anything for it.

Pros:

1. Since it is free, users download music they typically would not if               they had to pay for it.

2. This increases getting an artist name known.

3. Live performaces have increased due to the artist becming more             popular

Cons:

1. Artist does not get paid for illegal music.

2. Companies that distibute music lose revenue.

3. Artist shows a decrease in sales.

Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
It is almost impossible to listen to a current hip-hop song that does not bear Dr. Dre's influence. With innovations in style that started with the hip-hop group N.W.A., and, later, as a solo rapper and producer, Dre's influence and lasting impact on hip-hop music and culture is undeniable. He pioneered a new style of music that in the early 1990s would come to be known as "gangsta" rap, and his proteges - Snoop and Eminem - are both considered some of the top rappers to have emerged since rap was born on the streets of New York three decades ago. This biography traces Dre's rise to fame, a story that parallels the rise of hip-hop as one of the most dominant cultural forces in America. Dre came of age at the time when hip-hop culture (rapping, breakdancing, Deejaying, and Graffiti art) began an underground trend in urban America. Chapters take the reader from Dre's childhood in Los Angeles through his friendships, early influences, and the birth of his music career. Also discussed is the tragic tale of Death Row Records, which culminates in the high-profile murders of rap artists Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. and serves as a lesson on what can go wrong when people in the rap business believe their own "gangsta" hype. Dre's ability to survive in the rough-and-tumble rap industry is a testament to the power of artistic vision and the payoff of sheer persistence. Students interested in the history of hip hop music and culture will find this biography essential reading. A timeline highlights significant events in Dre's life and career. A bibliography provides biographical sources, reviews, interviews, critical articles, and related Web site information.

I brief background about my favorite Music Producer/artist. I recall the first day I heard NWA's Compton song. It change my mind and the way I see the world. Being born in the Philippines. These kind of sounds made by this man were never heard of before.

Logan Findeison's curator insight, December 6, 2015 9:33 PM
Dr. Dre has influenced almost all Hip Hop in this day. If you listen to any Hip Hop song or album Dr. Dre's influences are somewhere in it.

The Ultimate Portable and Affordable Music Gear For 2016

As a band manager and musician, I am always looking out for quality music gear. My favorite place to demo new gear is the NAMM Show. The countdown is on for the 2016 NAMM show, known for bringing music industry professionals together with 5,000 music brands, loads of special events, dozens of educational sessions, and live music. This year promises to be bigger than ever, and while the show is only open to NAMM members (and not the general public), fret not. I've got the inside scoop of some of the best portable and playable gear featured there this year. Excited? You know I am. Whether innovative or just plain fun, here's a look at my picks:



Top Pick: Kala U-Bass

This little beauty may be smaller than the average bass, but don't be fooled by its 21" scale. It may look like a ukulele, but the Kala U-Bass carries huge sound, especially when plugged in. The U-Bass is so much fun, you won't be able to put it down- and you won't need to! The size makes the instrument super portable, making it easy to bring along wherever you go; it even meets most airline carry-on requirements. Kala's U-Bass features a solid mahogany body and neck, custom hipshot tuners, 16 position lines, 12 frets, custom inlays, and a Kala electronic system with an active EQ and built in tuner.

The secret to the big U-Bass sound is in the polyurethane strings. They're thick and stretchy and easy to play, much like those of an upright bass. The size of the instrument paired with the elasticity of the strings makes this an fun instrument for anyone, including children. Frankly, the U-Bass is beautifully constructed. The sheer simplicity, beauty, and playability of this instrument make it my favorite item on this list.

Monoprice RetroVision Electric Guitar

Whether you're a seasoned professional or you're picking up a guitar for the first time, you'll definitely appreciate the amazing playability of this guitar. The RetroVision is a full sized, 22 fret, single cutaway electric dream that plays with the quality of a Fender made guitar. It's completely versatile, featuring both a neck and a bridge pickup, capable of producing a wide range of tones depending on the sound you're looking for. This guitar is easily a jack-of-all-trades, capable of creating classic country, rock, blues, and jazz tones.

Right out of the box the guitar comes set up, tuned, and inspected by a professional guitar technician. This guarantees that the neck is straight, the action is right, and the guitar stays tuned. This baby comes with everything you need to get started: strings (installed), a gig bag with shoulder strap, and a truss-rod wrench. Best Of All: The price point is $132.99. That's right, you get an obscenely great quality guitar for the price. Don't believe it? I didn't either, but the quality is superb, and this is coming from a person that pines over vintage. You throw this guitar in the tour van and not worry about dings, and there's certainly no need to make a Yamaha Pacifica or Fender Squire your first guitar -- the RetroVision is a solid piece for anyone's collection.

Ahead Drum Case (Model AA5038W)

If you're a musician, you lug your equipment from gig to gig. That's what you do. Drums are always the most cumbersome to transport. Ahead Cases make lugging drum stands and set-up much easier. Thanks to the addition of oversized wheels, transporting equipment is more convenient than ever.

Ahead cases come in three different sizes (28", 38", and 48"). We tested the Ahead case on Warped Tour and the weather resistant, double stitched, 600 denier, polyester fabric, as well as double locking adjustable straps took a beating. The stands and contents were protected by the strong and sturdy structure. Simple and efficient, make your next case an Ahead case.

Roland Microcube GX

Looking for an amp with the oomph and bite you need that won't get you evicted for noise complaints? Well look no further. I have tried (and owned) almost every practice amp on the market and the Roland Cube line has them all beat. The Roland MicroCube has been touted as the most popular battery-powered amp of all time, and the new GX model is no different. Along with the classic micro cube sound, the GX boasts 25 hours of battery life, a built in chromatic tuner, eight different DSP effects, eight classic and modern amp models, as well as an independent DELAY/REVERB processor (complete with spring reverb). And with a new memory function, saving your favourite or most used settings has never been easier. I've owned a few Roland Cube amps over the years, though all have lasted, the current model has new features not to be missed.

Perhaps the most impressive feature of this portable powerhouse is the I-CUBE LINK and CUBE JAM app, which allow you to plug in your iPhone/iPad/iPod and play along, a key feature for musicians who need to learn new songs on the fly. The CUBE JAM app turns your amp into an essential practice tool, with options like independent speed and pitch adjustment. The app even lets you record and export your jams to a 16-bit, 44.1 kHz WAV file. And with a price point of under $200, the GX is a fun, affordable way to plug in wherever you go.

Check out this comprehensive demo and see for yourself.

Vater Drum Sticks (5b)

There's nothing worse than breaking a stick in the middle of a song, and that's why the Vater 5b's are a go-to. I can always rely on their durability to bands through a show. The 5b's are super responsive and powerful; the weight and balance of the sticks are perfect for all of the different styles of music.

Vater 5b's are available in American hickory, sugar maple, nude series, eternal black, and colour wrap, depending on your preference. The sticks are 16" in length and have an acorn tip, the grip is 0.605", making it comfortable for experts and beginners alike. Along with being balanced, consistent, and durable, the 5b's are affordable. At less than $30 for a pack of three, the Vater 5b's are a must have for anyone behind a kit.

KAOSS DJ Pad

Gone are the days of bulky DJ equipment, long live the KAOSS DJ Pad! Have you seen this thing!? This sleek DJ controller weighs in at 730 grams (that's lighter than a MacBook Air), and while it's small, it doesn't skimp on control features. The KAOSS DJ comes equipped with the legendary KAOSS PAD effects unit, which features 120 programs, as well as classic Kaossilator synth programs, sweeping filters (drop that bass!), time based delays, and host of isolators. Additional features include an FX release for natural blending, a hold function which allows you to maintain effects without keeping your finger on the trigger, an auto BPM function, and a SCALE/KEY feature which allows you to play synth in the key of your song of choice (without any wrong notes, I might add).

In addition to being a DJ Controller, the KAOSS DJ acts as a standalone two-way mixer and a USB audio interface. The DJ pad also comes with two responsive platters, a crossfader that's already pre-broken in, and a free download of Serato DJ Intro. This pad is fun to use and you can take it anywhere for inspirations or house-parties on the go! performance to the next level.
