WiMP brand to be phased out as Jay-Z takes control of Tidal
So, we can officially stop saying Tidal/WiMP to refer to the streaming service that began in the Nordics as WiMP but launched as Tidal in the US and the UK, where the brand WiMP seemed a little too, well, wimpish.

We can also bring to an end the frequently held CMU HQ debate over whether we should allow WiMP to have its lower case 'i'. Though from this morning's press announcement, Tidal seems to want to be known as TIDAL, which is only allowed under the CMU style guide if it stands for something. Maybe we'll just go with TiDAL and be done with it.

Anyway, the WiMP brand is on its way out now that Aspiro, the company which operated both WiMP and Tidal, is in the hands of that Jay-Z fella (and given that Roc Nation was given as a press contact on this announcement, Team Zee are clearly already hands-on when it comes to their new streaming music toy).

The company said in a statement: "Marking the beginning of a new era of music and video experiences for consumers everywhere, Tidal is now the sole name for the service that was once divided between streaming services Tidal and WiMP".

It went on: "The next step in the evolution of streaming, Tidal is a global entertainment streaming service and artist hub that delivers content the way the artists intend for fans to experience it: High-fidelity streaming music along with exclusive content, editorial, experiences and merchandise".

So that's all very exiting isn't it? I do like an artist hub. Of course, in its original markets WiMP offered both standard and high quality audio streaming, at 9.99 and 19.99 price points respectively. To date Tidal has been exclusively HD at the higher subscription rate. It's not clear what this means as the Tidal brand rolls out into WiMP territories.

Though perhaps more interesting than all the HD talk is the promise that Tidal will be "a single destination for artists and fans to share ideas, exclusive content, songs, videos, studio sessions, rough tracks, personal conversations and more".

As the freemium debate rumbles on in the music community - and increasingly on the pages of the more mainstream business press - now that the newly freemium-wary Universal is negotiating its next licensing deal with Spotify, many reckon content exclusives are the solution.

That is to say, rather than killing the free level of Spotify - which many reckon would be counterproductive at this point - pile a load of exclusives into premium to make the 9.99 price point more attractive (and perhaps allow a 4.99 level that is ad-free and fully mobile, but without the exclusives). And as a sister company to Roc Nation with its own roster of artists, Tidal now has access to artist exclusives beyond anything the labels can provide.

So, interesting times to come perhaps as Tides By Jay goes live around the world.

Suge Knight collapses as $25 million bail set
Suge Knight last week left court in an ambulance for the fourth time since being charged with causing the death of Terry Carter back in January.

As previously reported, the one time hip hop mogul killed Carter and injured another man when he hit them with his pick up truck while speeding away from an altercation. He insists the collision was an accident, but stands accused of deliberately driving his vehicle into the two victims.

As is customary for the Deathrow Records founder, the legal wrangling since the incident has been full of drama, with various changes in legal representation and Knight usually being taken ill during court hearings. On Friday he collapsed in the courtroom, with his current lawyer Matthew Fletcher telling reporters that his client hit his head on a chair as he fell unconscious.

Knight has previously complained that he is not receiving appropriate medical treatment in jail, and Fletcher again made that claim last week, saying that Knight is diabetic and has a blood clot but had not had any treatment on the day of the court hearing.

Fletcher also hit out at the $25 million figure that has been set for Knight to post bail. As also previously reported, bail was originally set at the already steep $2.2 million, but that was revoked early on.

The new legal man on the case managed to get bail back on the agenda last week, but the incredibly high $25 million rate was set by the judge after prosecutors pointed out Knight was already on bail in relation to another robbery case. Fletcher called the £25 million figure "absurd" and "clearly excessive".

Jailed Gregg Allman biopic director issues statement
The director of the ill-fated Gregg Allman biopic has issued a statement via the Associated Press after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and trespassing.

As previously reported, Randall Miller agreed to a last minute plea deal ahead of his trial after being prosecuted over the on-set death of camera assistant Sarah Jones while filming 'Midnight Rider', a movie based on Allman's autobiography. The crew had been setting up to film on a railway bridge when a train unexpectedly appeared, hitting a bed that had been placed on the tracks, injuring six and killing Jones.

In the unusual case of filmmakers being brought to trial over on-set deaths, director Randall Miller, Executive Producer Jay Sedrin and Producer Jody Savin, who is also Miller's wife, all faced charges. Miller took a two year jail sentence in return for charges against his wife being dropped, while Sedrin agreed to ten years probation.

Miller's statement reads...

On 20 Feb 2014, a great number of mistakes were made and the terrible accident occurred which took Sarah Jones' life. It was a horrible tragedy that will haunt me forever. Although I relied on my team, it is ultimately my responsibility and was my decision to shoot the scripted scene that caused this tragedy.

I pleaded guilty for three reasons: first, to protect my wife and family; second, out of respect for the Jones family and to not put them through a difficult trial; and, third, to take responsibility for my failure in not knowing that every safety measure was in place.

The location manager, the production designer, the unit production manager, the cinematographer, assistant director and others all made mistakes that led to this, but I have taken responsibility because I could have asked more questions, and I was the one in charge. I have worked in the film industry as a director for 25 years and never had a significant accident of any kind on any one of my sets.

I am heartbroken over this. I hope my actions have spared the Jones family more anguish and that the on-set safety measures that were lacking before this terrible tragedy will now take precedence for all in the industry.

Bieber sued by old neighbour, doesn't create great first impression with new neighbour
Oh, Justin. It was all going so well. The singer turned over a new leaf recently, quickly establishing himself as the world's greatest guy. I mean, you don't go on Ellen DeGeneres's show to say you've changed if you're not serious, do you? And I for one believe him, but he can't quite shake off his awful past just yet.

The Biebman's former neighbour Jeff Schwartz - the one whose house was the recipient of those eggs - is suing the singer for further damages relating to his time living next door to the popstar.

Bieber, of course, already faced criminal charges over the egging incident, pleading no contest and paying just over $80,000 in damages last year. However, according to TMZ, Schwartz has been pushing for further remuneration out of court ever since, demanding up to $1 million.

With no agreement reached, he filed a lawsuit last week claiming that Bieber once spat at him, one of his bodyguards threw anti-Semitic insults at him, and the star tarnished his good name as a car salesman. Team Bieber dispute Schwartz's claims.

Bieber himself has now moved away from that house and has new neighbours. But lucky for them, Justin is now a super great guy who won't cause any trouble. So whoever they are, they must be thrilled to have him next door.

Actually, we can find out, because one of his new neighbours is actress Emmy Rossum, who told The Hollywood Reporter: "Justin Bieber just moved in to the house next door to me. He's my new next-door neighbor, and I went over to kind of offer him a neighborly hello".

So that's nice that they're all friends. Well, except that she added: "I'm not gonna do that again because he has a ton of bodyguards there and they're really scary. It was so surreal to me that I was like, 'I am not going to go ask for a cup of sugar over there'".

Maybe the bodyguards are actually for Bieber's sugar.

Manchester's The Roadhouse to close
It was confirmed last week that Manchester gig venue The Roadhouse will close later this year, with the last show due to take place on 31 May. A series of "memorable send-off gigs and club nights" are now planned between now and then.

Announcing that the end was now nigh for her venue, owner Kate Mountain, who first took over the space in 1999, told reporters: "The Roadhouse has championed thousands of local musicians who dreamed of rock n roll stardom. It was a commitment we have always taken seriously, offering a stage and an opportunity to local bands from the first week we opened the doors and will do so until the very last".

Meanwhile Guy Garvey off of Elbow, who worked at the club before playing some of his earliest gigs there, told the Manchester Evening News: "Kate's been trying to make it work for so long, and closing it is not a decision she arrived at in any way lightly. She was loathe to shut it for so long because of the sense of duty she felt to young bands".

He went on: "I don't think I'm speaking out of turn when I say she was really concerned for her staff. For everyone who worked there, it became the hub of their universe. When we got our record deal, we all left in the same weekend leaving her with no staff. And when we lost our record deal, she took us all back".

Noting the role the venue has had in the Manchester music scene while under Mountain's leadership, Garvey added: "She has been one of the caretakers of music in Manchester for so long. If there isn't a bronze statue of Katy Mountain somewhere in the city soon, I'll sculpt one myself".

Minogue confirms Roc Nation departure
Kylie Minogue has issued a statement about her decision to part company with Jay-Z's Roc Nation company, which had managed the singer's career for the last two years.

As previously reported, one of those pesky sources told The Sun last week that Minogue was disappointed with the performance of her most recent record 'Kiss Me Once' and that various endorsement and sponsorship deals promised when she joined Roc Nation hadn't actually materialised. If only Kylie had been a little-used streaming service, then she'd have been Jay-Z's top, top priority, that's for sure.

Anyway, the singer was slightly more diplomatic while confirming that she was dumping the Roc-ers last week, focusing on how swell everything had been these last two years, rather than why, given all the swellness, she was now looking at other management options.

Said Minogue: "I've had an amazing time with Roc Nation and it's been fantastic to team up with them over the last two years. We got together at a period in my life when I wanted to shake things up. I loved collaborating with Roc on the 'Kiss Me Once' album, world tour and DVD and have made great friends in the process. I'm now looking forward to my upcoming summer gigs and embarking on new adventures. And I want to thank everyone at Roc Nation who have been on this incredible ride with me".

Deezer Elite goes global with same price points as US
As expected, Deezer's high quality audio offering Elite went properly global last week, having launched in the US last year, and becoming an upgrade option for existing users elsewhere last month. Though the HD service is exclusively available to Sonos users for now.

In terms of price point, the same rates will be applied in the UK and Europe as in the US, though with pounds and euros instead of dollars (so, actually, not the same rates, we always end up paying more).

So getting Deezer tunes in FLAC quality will cost £14.99 a month, rather than the usual £9.99 for premium, unless you sign up to twelve months in one go, in which case the Elite rate is £9.99 too.

Though, while that's cheaper than the £19.99 standard set by Tidal for high quality audio (so high quality is double normal quality), technically Deezer's rates are the same as its main rival in HD, but it is offering discounts to Sonos users for the first year. After that it should go up to £19.99 a month.

But it remains to be seen what happens in a year's time, and whether HD can retain its double rate premium on premium. If you know what I mean.

MU expresses concerns over live music cutbacks at Radio 1
The Musicians' Union has expressed concern about the news that Radio 1 plans to cut its live music output in order to meet budget demands caused by the freezing of the licence fee in 2010.

As previously reported, the cutbacks will result in the number of live sessions aired by the BBC pop station dropping from 250 to 160 a year, with the cuts mainly affecting sessions within specialist programming. Radio 1 will also cover fewer large-scale music events. The planned downsizing was revealed in a report by regulator the BBC Trust which reviewed all of the Corporation's music radio services.

Noting the Union's continued support for the BBC, and that it will be a vocal supporter of the broadcasting institution as it negotiates a new charter and license fee deal with the next government, MU General Secretary John Smith told reporters on Friday: "These findings from the BBC Trust run the risk of compromising the unique coverage of live music events on the BBC".

He went on: "The proposal to reduce the number of live sessions on Radio 1 from 250 to 160 is very concerning and the BBC should remember the u-turn it was forced to make over 6 Music when it became clear how much the public valued that station. Without the BBC's commitment to live music the public would have virtually no opportunity to experience it on broadcast media and the MU believes that Radio 1 must remain distinct from the offer made by commercial broadcasters - namely by maintaining its coverage of live music".

  Approved: Femme
Vocalist in Nigel Godrich's Ultraísta, Laura Bettinson has been gaining a lot of traction with her Femme solo persona over the last twelve months, with a series of well-received singles and a US tour with Charli XCX under her belt.

Last week, she unveiled her latest single, 'SOS', which is due out on 4 May through ZTT. Her most engaging release to date, Bettinson dips her toe into experimental waters on the verse, but ensures she's built up a trust with the listener first with a killer chorus, so that everyone knows everything is going to be fine.

You'll be able to catch her live at The Lexington in London on 29 Apr, ahead of the single's release.

More winners confirmed for Artist And Manager Awards
Another update from the Artist And Manager Awards? Oh yes, because we don't yet know who'll be winning the Artist's Artist Award or the Industry Champion Award at this week's MMF/FAC bash.

But now you're just two paragraphs away from knowing exactly that. Though if you are attending the event itself, perhaps you don't want to know? Keep a little suspense for the evening, maybe? So, if you don't want to know that Placebo and agent Paul Fenn have both been added to the winners list, look away now.

So, Placebo will take the Artist's Artist Award as they head towards the 20th anniversary of their debut long player next year with a series of reissues. Confirming this, FAC Co-Chair Sandie Shaw says: "Placebo represent all that is great about artists today - twenty years of creativity, control of their own destiny, willingness to take risks, all of which has garnered a worldwide sustained career. They are a role model for young artists and an inspiration to us all".

Asgard owner and veteran booking agent Paul Fenn will be presented with the Industry Champion Award in recognition of his long career in the live sector, and his work with both the Agents Association and the Concert Promoters Association. MMF boss Jon Webster says: "Paul Fenn's experience has benefited hundreds of artists and managers by making sure legislation about live issues passed by Government has been fit for purpose".

The Artist And Manager Awards are on Thursday, and here's a link: www.amawards.org

All Will.i.am wants is a London passport and a flat in The Shard. Is that so much to ask?
Poor Will.i.am. He may have concurrently successful careers in music, tech and broadcasting, but one of the basic levels on Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs is still not being satisfied for him yet. He doesn't have a place he can truly call home. Worst of all, he knows exactly the place where he'd be truly happy, but none of his many jobs pay enough for him to live there.

It all seemed so easy back in August 2014. Then he told the Evening Standard: "I want to have an apartment in The Shard. One day I'm gonna live in there, I know it".

But seven months later, an air of despair had entered his previously sparky tone. "I want to live in the Shard", he wept on the shoulder of the Standard earlier this month. "Dude, I want to be a citizen and have a London passport. London is the centre of the world".

Look at us Londoners, all walking around with our passports, free to go over the border into whatever is outside London and back again whenever we want. Not Will though. Will is trapped on a temporary work visa, at risk of being booted out into Wiltshire or somewhere similar at any moment. And all he wants to do is buy a flat in The Shard and live there as a London Citizen, but he can't. And who is to blame for this? The bloody BBC, that's who.

"The Shard is expensive and they don't pay that much at the BBC so I'll stay in someone's yard instead of the Shard".

Are you happy, The BBC? Are you happy that you're making Will.i.am sleep rough in people's gardens? Honestly, first sacking Jeremy Clarkson for just punching a guy a little, and now this. Is this what we pay our licence fee for? So that multi-millionaire entrepreneurs can't afford to buy a flat in one of our capital's most expensive buildings? You make me sick, The BBC. Sick to my very stomach.

Will.i.am is a more magnanimous man than I though. And he's got a can-do attitude that's really going to take him places one of these days. Because last week, having cried out all his tears, and realised that London isn't actually a country, he was back on the campaign trail.

"I want to become a proper Brit", he beamed at The Sun. "I have been coming here for years and I just like it. It feels like home. I want to live in the Shard but it is expensive and ['The Voice'] doesn't really pay the bill but I'll figure it out".

You hear that? He's going to figure it out! It's enough to make you well up. You go, Will!
