Day Collinss insight:
This article was interesting to touch base on the Covid-19's role played within the music industry and how artist and society is dealing with the pandemic and the spread of the virus within its pathways etc... I feel as though sixth wave has taken interest in part of this issues as a platform speaking awareness and updates on the directions of which the virus will spread and possibly who it may affect regarding peoples preference of attending a live event or streaming from home etc. 
Their statement on how "consumers are growing more concerned over health, safety and job security and increasingly turning to entertainment for comfort, information and connection to others. Video streaming services still remain the most popular subscriptions to add, but interest in music streaming services has grown considerably, as people are spending more time with music and seeking familiar content, especially music. Release 6 also shows that people are starting to return to live events but still prefer smaller crowds and have become even more accepting of safety measures. There is also stronger interest than ever in virtual concerts."

Super Hi-Fi Hopes to Change Streaming Audio Using AI

Super Hi-Fi Hopes to Change Streaming Audio Using AI | Production Engineer Expert | Scoop.it
It is the automation of this art, once the preserve of skilled radio DJs, that Super Hi-Fi is bringing to the digital music industry. In doing so, the L.A.-based company thinks it can help music services and artists make more money, and give listeners a new and improved way of experiencing audio.

I agree that "It is the automation of this art, once the preserve of skilled radio DJs, that Super Hi-Fi is bringing to the digital music industry. In doing so, the L.A.-based company thinks it can help music services and artists make more money, and give listeners a new and improved way of experiencing audio." The industry of music is changing and is an ever revolving door allowing depictions of creativity from all walks of life and technology. Sound waves are one of the main ingredients producers possibly look for to make sure their artist projects are being in the best possible audio definition out there, and with tech individuals coming up with new era ways to make this happen it seems the future of audio in music and the way people will hear it will continuously change.

Stem Music Startup Drives Social Change Plus $100 Million In Artist Royalty Distributions | Production Engineer Expert | Scoop.it
Stem music distribution and payment platform recently raised $10 million in new funding and, since its 2015 launch, has paid out $100 million in royalty payments to independent artists using the platform.

Via Midem Team
Day Collinss insight:
I think this article is one of the most important within the music industry to support the injustices of human beings. Standing on its word and advocacy to support independent artist and other racial injustice issues within the industry including discrimination's and other like topics that raise awareness to the issues in the forefronts of our society today. I like the fact this platform raises royalties for artist and does not hesitate to disburse their coins as they work hard on their crafts and it matters that they be recognized for it, even if local or independent etc...
QueenAngeline Rodriguez's curator insight, September 21, 10:19 PM
Stem Music has raised over $100 million paying royalties to indie artists and also fighting equality and justice for artists in the music industry. Stem Music is gaining support in the industry and social justice platforms. 

Independent artistry is gaining more support in the industry as the years go on. 
Edward Brown's curator insight, November 10, 8:47 PM
Social media is still keeping the independent artist with great royalties.
G Braynt Salgado's curator insight, November 15, 11:56 PM
Stem really focuses on providing opportunities in the music industry for independent artists as well as supporting huge movements such as BLM and others.

The fact this article is on Forbes, aka one of the most successful and popular platforms of financial information, should say it all.

I'm sure artists know to trust this website for information that is accurate and up to date.

Ice Cube on Role in Developing Trump Campaign's 'Platinum Plan' for Black America |  News | Production Engineer Expert | Scoop.it
Day Collinss insight:
I feel this topic was relevant to today's issues going on within the industry today because artist are becoming aware of the racial injustices and bias going on not only in public america btu within the industry as well with known and unknown artist and issues with their lawyers, producers etc.. Pushing for change in society could very well lead to artist trust and higher success with independent comers as progress within the unity of industry leaders and our society continues to be address by well-known celebrities like ice cube etc...

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 | Production Engineer Expert | Scoop.it
These five hot Mzansi musos are just a few of the independent artists choosing not to be signed to a record label.

Via Midem Team
Day Collinss insight:
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.
Jarard Kenneth's curator insight, July 24, 8:13 PM
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.
