Exclusive: Kongsted x Temmpo – Boomerang (Xan Griffin Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Fresh off the release of his debut Zodiac album, Los Angeles producer Xan Griffin is back with a remix of Kongsted and Temmpo’s “Boomerang.”

Xan Griffin taps into the lighthearted soul of the track and amplifies it, adding future bass production behind Tonino Speciale’s vocals. He primed the formerly low-key track for the dance floor with a soaring synth theme, backed by layers of atmospheric melodies. Xan Griffin lights a fire under “Boomerang,” preserving the heartfelt message of the original while adding his own spin to its memorable melodies.

The track is part of a remix package that also includes a rework by KRONO. The two tracks are out June 15 via Universal Music.

YouTube seeks to debut a new paid streaming service by March

This post was originally published on this site

YouTube will look to launch its own music streaming service come March. Tentatively titled “Remix,” the paid service will offer video clips directly sourced from YouTube, as well as on-demand music streaming.

Remix represents Google’s third attempt to introduce a music streaming platform that can contend with the likes of Apple Music and Spotify. Google released its audio-only streaming service, Google Play Music, in 2011. 2014 would see the development of YouTube Music Key, a subscription based service that coupled ad-free music streaming and music video viewing on YouTube for a ten-dollar monthly fee. In 2015, YouTube Music Key became YouTube Red. YouTube Red maintained all of YouTube Music Key’s original features, adding offline video viewing. YouTube Red also enabled subscribers to listen to videos even when their phone screens were turned off.

Warner Music Group has already signed a licensing deal with YouTube in support of Remix. YouTube currently remains in talks with Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group. The inception of Remix is said to hinge on YouTube’s ability to negotiate agreements with major music publishers.

YouTube will remain on the offensive as its contract with Vevo becomes subject to renewal in early 2018. Jointly owned by Sony and Universal, Vevo holds a “majority share” of music video rights. YouTube, however, might find some of its industry relationships to be tenuous given the record industry’s general distaste for YouTube’s reportedly thin payouts to labels and artists. The third time might indeed be the ‘charm’ for Google, but only time will tell if Remix can emerge as a formidable contender in the music streaming market.

Major labels are removing personal covers of their copyrighted songs from Facebook

This post was originally published on this site

Copyright owners have always been in a state of conflict with consumers in terms of protecting their licensed content. The advent of streaming and facilitation of content-sharing brought on in the last decade through social media have embattled major labels with a previously inconceivable number of infringers. After levying a constant stream of DMCAs against publishers, aggregators, and consumers in retaliation in the past several years, majors have made some strides toward ameliorating their relationships with potential threats to their copyrights. By embracing platforms like Spotify, and neutralizing SoundCloud through comprehensive legal agreements, labels have managed to still reap profits while potentially threatening platforms remain operable – albeit, in a somewhat neutered form.

However, the struggle between copyright holders and potential infringers will never end as long as there is a desire for free content, and a means by which to monetize that content. The latest apparent way this struggle has taken shape has seen a major label take perhaps step too far: by removing individual Facebook users’ covers of copyrighted songs from their personal accounts. Digital Music News has reported the story of indie songwriter Sarah Hollins, whose video cover of  DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” was removed after Universal Music issued a complaint.

Of course, Facebook is bound to comply to labels’ DMCAs – a platform of its size legally couldn’t operate were it to step outside such legal bounds. Yet, it’s a bit troubling that labels such as Universal are taking such abrasive, even capricious measures to protect their content. DMN‘s report notes that Hollins’ cover was posted on her account for eight months before being taken down. The publication further comments that DNCE’s song has over 300 million views on YouTube, in contrast to the 500 views which Hollins’ cover had amassed; clearly, Hollins’ post was neither an attempt to “steal” views from the original video, nor did it have the potential to do so.

Copyright holders have a legal claim to their content – but at what point does their defense of copyrights infringe on individuals’ privacy, and what factors determine when the juice is worth the squeeze?

Vigiland – Let’s Escape (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Sweden’s stake in the crossover dance world has never been higher, but production duo Vigiland have held their corner within it considerably over the past couple of years. Having hit the multi-platinum mark and amassed some 240 million streams with singles like “Pong Dance,” “Shots & Squats” and “UFO,” the young outfit show signs of pop-facing maturity for their latest spot for Universal Music.

Taking a leaf out of native icon Avicii’s playbook with stripped back beats and raw acoustic riff work, “Let’s Escape” fuses strong singalong moments with an immediately infectious whistle hook, keeping things unapologetically commercial without bowing to the genre’s cheesier ranks. The song contains enough of the act’s Melbourne bounce roots to keep fans of old happy, but Vigiland’s reputation for solid hits looks to only grow in the wake of this landmark solo offering.
