Issue #29  •  March 1  •  view online
Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
Good Morning!
This week is full of news circling two topics - Spotify launching in India and Tencent Music possibly bidding on Universal Music Group.
Spotify launched in India this week and Warner Music celebrated by filing a lawsuit against Spotify. By far the most exciting piece of news this week given a major is finally taking on the streaming behemoth albeit for the wrong reasons.
Tencent is possibly bidding on the giant Universal Music Group. This would shape up the industry in an interesting way.
Sofar Sounds has taken on the idea of community built around music successfully. Interesting to see where they go next.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
