Upward Spiral Podcast #8: Music’s Generation Gaps, Music Apps Communities & More
Hypebot presents the eighth episode of The Upward Spiral Podcast, an ongoing discussion of the new music industry featuring Kyle Bylin of Live Nation Labs (and former Hypebot Editor), music industry consultant Jason Spitz (Former Director of Marketing at Topspin), and Hypebot's Hisham Dahud (also of Fame House). They launched the podcast as a platform for conversations about the issues that face artists and music professionals.
In this episode, musician, filmmaker, and Hypebot contributor Robin Davey joins the trio to discuss "The Generation Gap" – how legacy artists and new bands face different (and not so different) challenges in the new model. Kyle, Hisham and Jason then talk of the digital communities communities forming around music apps such as This Is My Jam.
All this plus news on Topspin, MTV, piracy trials, and more!
