Gretchen Parlato - “How We Love” - The Lost and Found. Last music post and then back into the zone. Check out her live record release next Friday, 12/13, at Rockwood Music Hall.
Mikey-D and the L.A. Posse - “I Get Rough”. The guy who LL stole his style from (yeah, I said it, so have others). Produced by legendary Paul C. Read all about it. It is worth it just to read about how Mikey-D won the New Music Seminar MC Battle and had his belt stolen by Melle Mel from Grandmaster Flash. I loved this cut as a kid.
As much as we all love turntable.fm, we have decided to shut it down to fully concentrate on the Live experience.
Turntable.fm on killing the flagship product to focus on their Live product. Despite how awesome Live is, I for one am sad to see this happen. Their last day is December 2nd. Too soon?
The fact is, Apple, Google, Amazon or Microsoft should reintroduce this idea at scale, with the wallet to weather licensing and marketing for the long haul. There is a lot of untapped win here that only liquidity can unlock.
How we combine synchronous and asynchronous events in music, video, gaming and interactive entertainment will define the next generation of integrated marketing, where the product and marketing are indistinguishable from each other.
RIP tt.fm. ;-(
