The Great Escape kicks off with CMU's Where We're At keynote
CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke kicked off CMU Insights @ The Great Escape this morning with his traditional Where We're At keynote, identifying the five key trends occurring in the music industry today.

Beginning with the rapidly growing and fast evolving streaming music sector - and pre-empting a stats report due to be presented at the conference by IFPI's Alex Jacob later this morning - he told the TGE audience: "We all know that streaming music boomed in 2014 while CD sales continued to slide and download sales peaked, but it is still early days for the streaming market at large. It may be the fastest-growing revenue stream for the record companies, but in many markets it is some
way off surpassing CD and download income levels".

While some services are gaining traction, he continued, most remain loss-making, prioritising growth over profitability. This, mainly, is down to business models that require multi-territory operations and mass-market consumption to work out long term. Plus, scale boosts perceived value when a sale or IPO comes around, which is where early investors will see a return on their investment.

The streaming market is already pretty crowded, he added, though a few services have all ready fallen by the wayside this year. Nevertheless, with Apple, Google and Amazon all busy plotting their next moves in streaming music, competition will remain strong this year. "But arguably all players face the same challenge", Cooke mused. "Ten pounds a month premium is too much for mainstream consumers, we have freemium and premium - now we need medium. But what does the middle market look like when the freemium services are so good?"

Meanwhile, within the music industry, Cooke noted, debate is not just focused on how digital services will evolve. There's also plenty of debate on what happens to the money already coming in from the streaming platforms - and how it is split between artist and label, and between the recording and song copyrights. When it comes to the latter divide, royalties have traditionally been split 50/50 (more or less) when sound recordings are playing on radio or in public spaces, but when CDs are sold labels take a bigger cut because they are the ones taking the risk on investing in new artists.

"The latter approach has been more or less adopted in the streaming space", Cooke explained, plugging a later talk where he'll explain exactly how streaming services are licensed. "The record companies argue that they continue to be the primary risk-taker with new talent, and actually pump content into the streaming platforms, and do all the marketing around new releases. Most of which is true".

But are the risks as high when labels are pushing content to streaming services, rather than pressing and distributing CDs? And is it not true that in the streaming age, a flurry of listening is just as likely to be caused by an artist's live activity, or television bookings, or a cleverly placed sync, all of which might happen without the label's active involvement? And further, with labels now securing their investments against a number of artist revenue streams, beyond just copyright, should they not relinquish some of the hold on their traditional revenue stream? Big questions to answer then - and the spotlight will be put on both the digital pie debate, and what, exactly, is driving streams, during this year's CMU Insights strands at TGE.

Cooke's third trend in the spotlight was the Google problem - the problem with search blocking, and the problem with safe harbours. With the record industry having now asked for 200 million piracy links to be deleted from the Google search engine, the labels want the web giant to do more, mainly delisting all links from known piracy operations. That, Cooke reckoned, was "the single biggest thing Google could do to placate the copyright industries". Well, that and not exploiting safe harbours with YouTube.

Moving on to the live industry, Cooke noted the increasingly vocal grassroots community in this domain. Initiatives like Independent Music Week, the Music Venue Trust and Venues Day have created a forum for promoters and venue operators to share there common frustrations: licensing issues especially around noise levels, small venues being priced out of town centres, gig-focused venues facing competition from pubs using music as a sideline, and the ongoing challenge of making any money whatsoever out of promoting new bands despite all the talk of a 'booming' live sector.

"It's no secret that making money out of promoting grassroots gigs, where brand new bands will likely play to an audience well under a hundred, is really hard to do, unless you own the bar selling the drinks", said Cooke. "And yet we all know that for most artists, however sophisticated your online presence, those early gigs are key for honing your sound and capturing an initial fanbase, most of which now happens long before a label, publisher or agent become involved".

The people promoting those gigs, therefore, feel that they are providing a vital service for the wider industry, but rarely benefit when they see the bands they help on their way up get big. "But what is the solution? Should government or the wider industry be helping, both by removing hurdles and, possibly, providing funding to grassroots promoters? Or should bands be using direct-to-fan channels to self-promote, so fewer people requirement payment?"

Mention of direct-to-fan brought Cooke to his final point, the continued increase in both D2F and multi revenue stream deals. The latter "reflects the often unspoken acceptance that recorded music will never again generate the same level of income it did at the peak of the CD business. Only in 2012 did rising download revenues compensate for declining CD sales, resulting in a tiny growth for the global record industry at large. But now booming streaming monies - themselves heavily subsidised by start-up capital and tech company subsidy - need to overcome declines in both CD and download sales".

Featured artists have always had various revenue streams open to them, living off publishing, live, merch and more while they waited for a time when they might make income from those records. However, says Cooke, "The real problem for the wider music industry when the CD bubble burst wasn't so much declining record sales as it was the fact the industry's primary investors in new talent - the labels - had too often secured their investments entirely on one single revenue stream: the one that's now in decline".

Most labels now insist on a cut of other revenue streams when negotiating a record contract with a new artist. And while managers and lawyer initially advised against such deals, they have now become the norm.

"But a more holistic partnership between artist and label can actually work for both parties
if managed correctly", Cooke said. "In particular, multi-revenue stream deals can incentivise labels to get involved in the generally under-tapped domain of direct-to-fan, better servicing and therefore capitalising on core fanbase". This, again, is a topic set to be explored at CMU Insights @ TGE this year, with the Friday strand 'What's The Point Of A Record Label Anyway?'

Debates and discussions are now well underway in Brighton, look out for reports on the special CMU@TGE microsite, plus later this month a series of podcasts, including highlights of Cooke's Where We're At keynote.

Rdio launches middle market service
With much chatter at the moment - not least at this week's Great Escape - about the need for 'medium' in streaming, Rdio has announced a $3.99 package called Rdio Select. And while some of the service's competitors go for the upper end of the market, Rdio hopes that it can grab the bigger middle market, people willing to pay for streaming music, but not ten dollars a month.

Or in the words of Rdio boss Anthony Bay, speaking to Buzzfeed: "We've all been flying airplanes that had business class only. There is no coach". In the economy section, streamers will get the Pandora-style service Rdio offers on freemium, plus the option to have 25 tracks on demand, a bit like defunct streaming start-up Bloom.fm.

Which is interesting, though - as has been discussed at CMU Insights @ The Great Escape this morning - while Rdio Select offers more than Rdio freemium, is offers less that the free level the company's big rivals. Which you have to think makes getting this kind of service off the ground challenging.

Philip Pullman to address PPL AGM
Author Philip Pullman is to appear as the keynote speaker at this year's PPL AGM next month, it has been announced.

Announcing the news, PPL Chair Fran Nevrkla told reporters: "We at PPL are absolutely delighted that Philip Pullman has agreed to be our very special guest keynote speaker at this year's AGM in PPL's 81st year. I am genuinely thrilled about Philip Pullman's participation, especially as he is hugely admired both for his brilliant writing as well as for his tireless and determined efforts on behalf of authors and other creators to ensure that they receive proper payment for their work".

Pullman added: "I'm very glad to have the chance to speak to an organisation devoted to the rights of creators and performers. In this age of digital reproduction we need a strong voice to speak up for rights that can be so easily ignored".

The event, open to all PPL members, will take place at Kings Place in London on 3 Jun.

Indie Label Cup charity five-a-side to take place this month
A new five-a-side football tournament involving those rather decent indie label sorts, called The Indie Label Cup no less, will take place on 31 May raising funds for Crisis.

Already confirmed as taking part are Ninja Tune, 4AD, Hospital, Bella Union, Heavenly, R&S, Fabric and Domino.

There will be a limited number of spaces to watch the tournament on the day, with raffles featuring prizes from the labels taking part. Or you can just donate money to support Crisis' work with homeless people, which of course you should.

  Approved: The Great Escape 2015
The tenth anniversary edition of The Great Escape kicks off in Brighton today, as I'm sure you're all aware. We may have mentioned it once or twice. Of course, you will all be very excited about the CMU Insights conference strands, the full line-up for which you can check out here. But did you know there are bands playing too? I know, so cool.

Actually, there are over 450 musical acts on offer over the next three days. How do you even begin to navigate that? With the help of your old Uncle CMU, that's how. That sounded a lot more creepy than I intended. Basically, what I'm saying is, we've looked through the programme already and picked out some acts that you should definitely go and see.

Even better, we've put them in a playlist, so you can hear how great they are in advance. Here are our ten selections:

1. Aurora - Runaway
Still pretty new on the scene, Aurora has churned out a series of impressive singles over the last year or so. Her slightly folk-influenced (not too much, mind) pop sound looks set to be a big draw at this year's TGE.
15 May: Spiegelpub, 3.30pm
15 May: Coalition, 8.15pm

2. Tei Shi - Bassically
Tei Shi returned with her new EP, 'Verde', last month, which saw her ramp up the poppiness of her sound. 'Bassically' is 'bassically' just brilliant.
14 May: Komedia, 8.30pm

3. Susanne Sundfør - Fade Away
A CMU Artist Of The Year back in 2012, Susanne Sundfør returned with her new album, 'Ten Love Songs', earlier this year. And I'm still pretty confident that it's the best album you'll hear this year. And she's even better live. Have I sold her enough yet?
14 May: St George's Church, 10pm

4. Passepied - Matatabistep
Mashing up 80s new wave and J-pop, Passepied are a really exciting and different live band absolutely worth checking out. 'Matatabistep' is possibly their catchiest song, with a synth riff that's going to be stuck in your head for days.
16 May: Queens Hotel, 2pm
16 May: Komedia Studio, 8pm

5. Clarence Clarity - Those Who Can't, Cheat
Clarence Clarity's debut album, 'No Now', is arguably a bit on the long side, at 20 tracks. However, it does feed into the sensory overload that his music and accompanying videos provide. Let's see if his live show matches that too.
14 May: Sticky Mike's Frog Bar, 11.45pm

6. Blanck Mass - Dead Format
Last time Blanck Mass, aka Fuck Button's Benjamin Power, appeared at The Great Escape, it was playing tracks from his ambient debut album. This time, he's back with his much harder-edged second effort, 'Dumb Flesh'.
15 May: St George's Church, 10pm

7. Shamir - On The Regular
I mean, if Shamir isn't already on your list, you can't have realised he was going to be performing at The Great Escape. You can thank me for bringing this to your attention later.
14 May: Coalition, 9pm
16 May: The Haunt, 8.45pm

8. Noah Kin - Do That
Finland isn't the obvious place you'd go looking for great rap music, but I guess that's what spurs Noah Kin on to keep making it. His latest single 'Do That' is a fine example of his talents.
14 May: Shooshh, 7.15pm
15 May: Queens Hotel, 9.15pm

9. Mew - Water Slides
It's Mew. Bloody Mew! At the Great Escape.
16 May: The Old Market, 10.15pm

10. Yosi Horikawa - Letter
Producer Yosi Horikawa mixes electronic sounds and recordings of everyday noises to create truly amazing music. His sound design skills are stunning. Seriously, put on some headphones and listen to what he does with a recording of a pencil writing on paper in this track.
15 May: Unitarian Church, 6.45pm
16 May: Queens Hotel, 3pm

Listen to all ten tracks on Spotify here, or via YouTube here.

Original Oasis line-up reunion rumoured, minus Noel
The original line-up of Oasis could be planning to reform, minus Noel Gallagher. That's what The Sun says, anyway. And as Noel wasn't a member of the very first line-up of the band, it totally counts. Probably.

A source told The Sun: "It's very early days but the wheels are in motion. Liam, Guigsy, Bonehead and Tony are all interested and keen to see how it can work. They don't seem to mind Noel not being on board, even though some fans won't regard it as a proper Oasis reunion. But as Noel wants no part in the band, it's the closest they are going to get to a full-scale comeback".

A spokesperson for Liam Gallagher told the NME that the singer has "no comment" on the rumours. However, earlier this month, when the last lot of Oasis reunion rumours circulated, he tweeted: "Re Oasis rumours, you know I don't bum the press. Never had, never will. You know where I am if you need me".

James Murphy to open New York wine bar
Former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy will open a wine bar in New York's Williamsburg district next month. Called The Four Horsemen, it will seat about 40 people, serving food and a range of 160 wines, all in an acoustically "tuned" environment.

"We keep calling it a wine bar because we want to underpromise and overdeliver", Murphy told the New York Times of the venture. "It has to be economically sustainable. It's not a vanity project".

Of the acoustic "tuning", which uses similar techniques to recording studios to manage sound, Murphy said that while the efforts he and his team have gone to are "total nerd stuff", it won't be obvious to patrons: "All people will know is that they're happy. They'll not feel the unpleasantness [of sound levels in other bars]".

QT energy drink goes on sale
The day has finally come. You all thought that PC Music artist QT's DrinkQT 'energy elixir' soft drink was some weird fictional gimmick. But now you can buy yourself a can and experience it for yourself. Pre-orders are being taken for a QT Energy Elixir Package, which will set you back $20 (and is only available in the US).

"For me it's a very natural energy but some people say it's out of this world", says QT, aka Quinn Thomas, of the drink.

For your money, you get one 250ml can of the drink, a custom greeting, special edition packaging, and a signed photo of QT herself. The drink is "manufactured to contribute to upward shine, vertical connectivity and personal growth", says the website taking orders. "DrinkQT is an energy elixir empowering consumers to supercharge their senses and elevate their consciousness".

So, there you go. Who wouldn't like their consciousness elevated? Place your orders here.

Kwabs announces details of debut album
Kwabs has announced details of his debut album, 'Love + War', which is due for release through Warner/Atlantic on 11 Jun.

Of the song, he told the DJ: "I'm happy that people are going to get to hear 'Fight For Love' at last. This track has definitely got some funk to it. It's my dance-the-tears-away anthem. We all need some of those!"

You'll be able to catch him live at various festivals this summer, and a headline show at Somerset House in London on 17 Jul.

Here's the album's tracklist too:

1. Love + War
2. Fight For Love
3. Walk

50 Cent denies jewellery heist
50 Cent has denied stealing jewellery worth a quarter of a million dollars in Las Vegas earlier this month.

According to TMZ, jewellery dealer Robert Marin claims that he took a watch and chain to show the rapper, with a view to selling it to him, on the weekend of the Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao boxing match at the beginning of May.

Having met 50 Cent at Drai's nightclub in the city, says Marin, the rapper invited him to see Floyd Mayweather's gym. And while there, it's alleged, two of Fiddy's security guards pistol whipped him and stole the jewellery.

Las Vegas police have said that the rapper is not a suspect in the case, according to Billboard, but they are still attempting to positively identify the alleged thieves.
