This Week’s Highlights

The music business is being redefined by Generation Z.
Audius the blockchain streaming startup is becoming irrelevant.
Startup spotlight this week is on music metadata startup, Reveel. This startup is taking on the horrible industry problem of metadata in a fresh way. They will assign you a Creator ID and then use this identifier to help you collect your revenue across different platforms. Though the landscape of the music industry is littered with ambitious companies trying to tackle this issue, this one has a good chance of succeeding.
U.S. lawmakers have requested information from Apple critic Spotify as part of an antitrust probe, according to two sources briefed on the investigation into allegations the iPhone maker engages in anti-competitive behavior to support its own apps.
While for years millennials were the target demographic of most music business marketing, Generation Z has since risen up as the primary stakeholder in the contemporary marketplace, which is in turn reshaping how artists, labels, and companies market themselves.
New startup Audius says its blockchain-based music streaming service is the solution that finally pays attention to indie artists’ needs. It’s also full of pirated material that, if its promotional materials are right, the company cannot remove.
