'Masters are owned by [the] artist': Chance The Rapper manager Pat Corcoran inks 'unprecedented' deal with Warner Records for 99 Neighbors

'Masters are owned by [the] artist': Chance The Rapper manager Pat Corcoran inks 'unprecedented' deal with Warner Records for 99 Neighbors | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

Chris Shelton's curator insight, March 22, 10:50 PM
This deal further the changes in the independent scene in the music industry making it look like the best way to go in the future is independent route instead of an major.
jonathan3banks@gmail.com's curator insight, March 23, 11:14 AM
First, in November last year, we had Taylor Swift inking a global deal with Republic Records / Universal Music Group – an agreement under which she appears likely to license her music rights to UMG on a relatively short-term basis. “It’s incredibly exciting to know that I’ll own all of my masters from now on,” said Swift on Instagram when announcing that agreement. “It’s really important to me to see eye to eye with a label regarding the future of our industry.” Those words, of course, became all the more prescient last month, thanks to Swift’s masters-related public fallout with Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. This week, another major music industry player is stating their joy at having struck a major label deal whereby masters are retained. This time, it’s not an artist doing the celebrating, but Pat Corcoran – the super-manager of Chance The Rapper, and therefore a key architect of one of the most talked about label-free artist campaigns of recent years.

Our chat with Steve Schnur
Tal Bill's curator insight, July 28, 2019 6:25 PM
 “My dream has been, since before Spotify was invented, to be able to have a 24/7 ever-changing gamer-to-gamer musical experience. Hopefully we're getting there. “ I agree with this statement. Video games are becoming more and more interactive. Any video game that pushes the envelope when it comes to its musical experience is significantly ahead of the curve. I think that video games are evolving into becoming fully immersive virtual realities. Dave Gian is listed as the author for this article, his twitter is also linked to his bio. Muse by Clio has a verified account on Twitter, so I believe this is a credible source. Muse has less than 3000 followers on Twitter, I would not consider them a major informational resource.
Grayson Vincent's curator insight, April 26, 12:25 PM
This article is about Steve Schnur. He worked for MTV and later became a high ranking executive in EA. EA makes video games and his job was to add music in. He talks about how music could influence a gamer when playing. I think this is important because music has a big impact and can enhance a game's quality. This source has a reasonable following, but I believe would tend towards the smaller size of scale in the audio industry. This means that this site is unlikely to be used vastly, but has good aspects and design which would make it easy to be used as a source.

Music streaming are starting to replace old-school record labels in offering advances to independent artists. With Apple signing acts, it appears as if the streaming services may become the new norm; replacing traditional record labels.
Kodie Tillman's curator insight, May 24, 8:52 PM
I think it’s great that artist have more ways they can be independent. I also think it’s good that big companies are stepping in to help these artists gain a foothold in the main stream music scene. To own everything you have created is a beautiful thing.

Lars Brandle had a fantastic conversation with David Weiszfeld the founder of Soundcharts. Soundcharts is an important software that is used by talent scouts and labels.
Trey Butler's curator insight, July 26, 2019 11:41 PM
This article/interview was a good way for me to be properly introduced to a new digital platform that could possibly change the way the streaming world will operate, efficiently. I'm not sure of the specifics of how it will, but I don't see how it wouldn't be beneficial in any way, shape or form in the industry.

Being that is has multiple social media outlets as well as a section to look for employment, The Industry Observer seems to be up and coming in terms of currency (the date of copyright). However it does not seem to sway to one side or the other with opinions or an absorbent amount of advertising. Also, to have an interview with the creator of the Soundcharts platform seems legit to me.

In Australia, mainly, the source seems credible. It is current, in terms of what's happening in the country and around the world.

This upgrade to Soudcharts is amazing. It gives a platform for easier networking and tracking to make things easier for anyone associated. Say if you have a huge team of people around you, there are less avenues to cross to get the information you need spread out. Also, it seems that keeping your personal information like passwords, safe, is a great thing in this technologically filled world.

The source is credible because it is factual and doesn't give any opinions in terms of whether or not anybody should use the platform. Just a straightforward piece of information.

Interesting to read about this "mood-music" being an up and coming (seemingly) fad. I use Spotify for a lot of my music listening needs and finding new artists/music for my ever growing playlists. So I wonder how this actually will play into the habits of others.

The page was established in 2002, and has multiple social media accounts. There are other links to more reading to better delve into the topic.

Whether the source is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals

Tal Bill's curator insight, July 28, 2019 6:10 PM
Algorithms that create new music are a great idea. This service reminds me of an AI Instagram personality. Lil Miquela is a robot avatar and pop star, she is loosely based on a real person but her brand is predominantly marketed as an AI. This is very forward thinking for the creators of Lil Miquela. I think that 3-D avatars are the future and this article confirms that. If computers will eventually be able to create music then adding a unique animated character will further the illusion of sentience. Although there is no author listed for this article, I was able to quickly google the Spotify playlist listed for Endel. This at least proves the article’s accuracy making it fairly credible. Musically.com has a Twitter with 28.7k followers. I would not consider them to be a major informational resource.
