tuneteams, founded by Ian Henderson, is an awesome new company that demoed last year at our meetup. You can watch the archive here It is an online, B2B marketplace for exclusive recording licenses, publishing and sub-publishing deals. Basically they help labels and publishers build international businesses and find new music to license. And it’s a great service for artists looking to expand their reach. You can submit music for free and if you find a deal, Tuneteams will take a 7% commission on a deal’s advance.
Check it out at tuneteams.com and create an auction for your song or album that you think has international sales potential. Also create a free profile and network with labels, publishers, managers and other industry professionals from all over the world.

Another way of analyzing listening habits.
Spotify’s latest feature, “Found Them First,” allows listeners to discover if they are early adopters when it comes to new artists. The tool will scan your listening history to see if you were in the top 15% of the population listening to a “breakout” singer.

We’ve got such a great meetup group and our August event exemplifies the great products (and one cautious tale), coming out the NY MusicTech scene. Enjoy!
Especially in light of its recently surge in trial memberships, Apple Music’s status as would-be Spotify killer seems more justified than ever. Competing against the likes of Apple poses problems for even some of the world’s largest and well-funded companies.
However, Spotify remains appropriately far from throwing in the towel. A recent series of moves from the streaming upstart helps illustrate its willingness to go toe-to-toe against Apple for the future of streaming.
Spotify has struck a deal with the electronic music site Beatport that will bring it new music and video content, the latest step in its intensifying competition with Apple over streaming music.
Nintendo released new details about its upcoming Wii U game, Super Mario Maker, in a new overview video today, revealing that a long list of amiibo will be supported in the game and that players will be able to make musical levels.
We took a breather for a few months. Our meetup had a series of great Winter/Spring events and deserved the summer off.
But lets have a little late summer fun yeah? If you’d like to present at our next event, please send links to Seth via the meetup group with to your working products and we’ll go from there.
