Mount Kimbie have signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Concord Music Publishing. “We are delighted to move into a new era for Mount Kimbie partnering with the fantastic global team across Concord, developing Mount Kimbie and both Kai and Dom’s solo writing”, says their manager Rich Austen-Smith of Giant Artist Management.
The UK’s Night Time Industries Association has announced a partnership with KUVO Powered by DJ Monitor to increase the number of venues where music recognition technology is monitoring tracks played by DJs. Venues can participate at no cost. “The roll out of this cutting edge technology in the UK will go a long way to developing stronger, more tangible insights into the music being played within businesses across the UK”, says NTIA CEO Michael Kill. “The developments within music recognition technology software over the last few years will also allow for more accurate data to be delivered to the music rights industry, ensuring that music creators get paid royalties for what is played by DJs at events”.


The board of directors of Howard University in the US has unanimously voted to rescind an honorary degree given to Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs in 2014. The decision was made following the recent publication of video footage of Diddy assaulting former partner Cassie Ventura which, the university says, is “so fundamentally incompatible with Howard University’s core values and beliefs that he is deemed no longer worthy to hold the institution’s highest honour”. It will also return a $1 million donation from the music mogul and end a scholarship programme established in his name.
Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney has commented on the band’s recent US tour cancellation and split from their management. “We got fucked”, he wrote on X. “I’ll let you all know how so it doesn’t happen to you. Stay tuned”. Irving Azoff’s Full Stop Management has previously said that the split was “amicable”.
