Jarard Kenneths insight:
The Ardour daw it an open source program, which appears to be able to give more well known daws a ran for it's money.
The fact that the writer related the daw to Audacity is down right disrepectful in my opinion. The update looks like the love child of Adobe Audition, Pro Tools, and Abelto, whilst being a cousin to Reaper.

The writer for this article, Tim Anderson, works with a UK based online news letter The Register. He typical discusses  software development, open-source software, and cloud platforms.

Off the beaten track: Independent artists the new norm in SA music industry

Off the beaten track: Independent artists the new norm in SA music industry | Audio Engineer/Music Producer/Singer/Songwriter | Scoop.it
These five hot Mzansi musos are just a few of the independent artists choosing not to be signed to a record label.

Jarard Kenneths insight:
I'm not surprised about this move for South Africa. Other areas like Nigeria are following suit as well. I have a close friend who is Nigerian, so he's tends to keep me in the know of what transpires musically in the motherland.

In all honesty, in a world full rules, regulations, and involuntary slavery (in reference to signing a portion of your life away), it's a breath of fresh air to see that many artists are taking the Chance The Rapper approach. They are able to create their buzz without some form of a machine backing them, like here in the USA.

This also allows artists to freely work with whomever, whenever, and that's the beauty of musical freedom.

I am also one of the few of the independent artists choosing not to be signed to a record label. Being under a record label is not the only way to progress in the industry. - Nolwazi Vezi

Day Collins's curator insight, October 19, 9:50 PM
I do feel as though independent artist are coming out way faster without a label than artist waiting around to be signed to a label. Artist may have a bit of a head start waiting to be signed than those without contracts, but I agree that without a contract, independent artist have a better lead-way and chance of performing their own music and distributing their own styles.

How Loops Are Changing the Sound and Business of Rap Production

How Loops Are Changing the Sound and Business of Rap Production | Audio Engineer/Music Producer/Singer/Songwriter | Scoop.it
With rappers recording at a nonstop clip, and sampling more difficult than ever,  hip-hop producers are increasingly outsourcing their melodies to a global network of loopmakers.
Jarard Kenneth's curator insight, July 24, 8:21 PM
As a music producer, I personally feel a certain type of way when it comes to loops. Although it's extremely rare for me to use loops, if I didn't make the loop myself via recording the audio, then I'm most like not going to use. It's a but frustrating to be a creative whilst witness quick success from other producers who shamefully use loops. It's might as well be considered an unpublished, non copyright of a sample for that matter.

Daniel Ek's company takes on SoundCloud, TuneCore, CD Baby and others with major move

Via Midem Team
Jarard Kenneths insight:
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.

Christopher Harvey's curator insight, November 18, 2019 5:47 PM
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, 10:35 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.

Ozuna and Afro B Teaming Up For Latin Version of Afrowave Hit 'Drogba (Joanna)'

Ozuna and Afro B Teaming Up For Latin Version of Afrowave Hit 'Drogba (Joanna)' | Audio Engineer/Music Producer/Singer/Songwriter | Scoop.it
Ozuna has teamed up with Afrobeat sensation Afro B for a bilingual Latin version of Afro B’s hit “Drogba (Joanna).”

Via Midem Team
Jarard Kenneths insight:
I had to save the best for last! Afro Dominican Reggaeton Artist Ozuna work with Afro British DJ Afro B for in better words a remix of Drogba, which was released in 2018. In reference to Drogba, Afro B, basically asked the character Joanna why is playing like the soccer/football player Didier Drogba. This is common in majority of salsa, bachata, and of course older reggaeton (or Spanish Reaggae for that matter), to mention the name of a woman. A perfect example of this the salsa hit by DLG entitled Juliana. Even American R&B, POP, and Soul utilizes this same approach (IE. Michael Jackson's Dirty Diana).

Overall this makes perfect sense for Ozuna make a Latin version of this song, be it that it is reminiscent of Panamanians make Latin or Spanish versions of popular Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall songs.

Josh Hamilton's curator insight, October 18, 10:42 PM
You must live under a rock if you have never heard the major Afro-beat hit 'Drogba (Joanna)'. There is no mistake that latin and afro music have flustered the billboards with many worldwide sensations. These 2 teaming up to give us a remix from a grammy nominated artist could add more to those numbers.
