✖️ Future of music & cheap eateries 🇻🇳 Apple Music's millennial problem 👶 Blockchain in Russia, Spotify, CMOs ⛓️
I’ve been having a great time here in Berlin. It’s basically been my first week in the city, and first week in the new job at IDAGIO.
Threw some of the week’s inspiration into this week’s lead piece about the future of music. The other piece follows up from the MySpace moment article from 2 weeks ago.
Enjoy - and have a nice week!
From me, for you
Some inspiration by my first week in Berlin, and my new role at IDAGIO.
Drawing more lessons from MySpace and Last.fm.

Also see Benji Rogers’ response to this for an update on his view on the wider music blockchain space.
“Yes, I’ve seen your album cover. I saw it when you talked about the pre-order… when you talked about the tours. I’ve seen your album cover 500 times. You do not need to keep posting about it!”
Preach, Claire Mas!
First thought: “Heh, that reminds me of when a Russian rights organisation asked us to deliver all playback events from our streaming service to them on paper.”
“Oh… looks like they’re getting smarter.” 🙃
Streaming is booming in Mexico.
An interview from a while ago about the Raving Iran documentary. Fascinating.
Artificial intelligence is making the limits of human knowledge painfully obvious.
The Moombahton legend Munchi has finally released a new track (he’s been on a hiatus for a few years). There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of him, but he’s influenced many of the greatest producers, from Diplo, to Dillon Francis, to Skrillex. An early pioneer of the moombahton genre (and many other sounds) who unfortunately decided to throw his hat into the ring way too early… Until now, that is!
