Streaming payouts, Ed vs Ed, Who’s DIDE?
Streaming simply doesn’t pay the bills! The discussion about streaming payouts has been going on for years. And now Snoop Dogg joined the debate: “That sh*t don’t add up!” Kikelomo speaks to Darren Hemmings of Motive Unknown about what needs to change and about what we as fans can do to support our favorite artists. Plus: a rapping pro footballer keeping his identity secret, a new SoundCloud feature that may change fan to artist interaction, reactions to Beyoncé’s tour start, a decisive ruling in the Ed vs Ed copyright trial – and this week’s recommendation comes from Nils Gelfort aka Thabo calling in from Berlin. The Week is a production by Telekom Electronic Beats and ACB Stories. Host: Kikelomo Writers for this episode: Aaron Gonsher, Jakob Paur and Isabel Woop Edit and sound design: Marc Übel Lead Producer: Isabel Woop
