Downtown Music Services has announced a global music publishing administration agreement with Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never. “I have been consistently floored by Daniel’s talent since I first heard Oneohtrix Point Never back in 2015″, says the firm’s Mike Smith.



Deezer has appointed Gitte Bendzulla as its new Chief Operating Officer. She joins from Spark Networks SE, America’s second largest dating company no less. “I am THRILLED to be welcoming Gitte to Deezer”, says CEO Jeronimo Folgueira.

Kobalt’s collecting society AMRA has announced the promotion of Robin Davies to Chief Operating Officer and Honey Onile-Ere to General Counsel. “As we steer AMRA into our next phase of growth and scale to transcend the industry with even faster accounting, more accurate payments, more value, and increased transparency, Robin and Honey’s leadership will continue to lead AMRA to new heights”, says CEO Tomas Ericsson.



As expected, Swedish House Mafia – already booked as a headliner but without being allocated a specific headliner slot – will replace Kanye West at Coachella later this month, he having bailed on the event somewhat late in the day, of course. Though SMS will actually share the slot vacated by West with The Weeknd. Good times.



The nominations have been announced for this year’s Ivors awards. Here they are everybody!
