I think this experiential marketing campaign for the new UK based House of Cards has got a bit out of hand now
Over the years I’ve somehow ended up working with a full 1/3 of the artists on this list. RIP @othermusic https://t.co/s8WY4sAOb5
This latest new Die Antwoord track is totally ridiculous (I just played it 3 times in a row, might go in for a 4th): https://t.co/93SeLEVoCD
New episode of the podcast is up, featuring chat about windowing, mobile apps and @mr_trick’s dislike of Radiohead: https://t.co/Qfm7QOkRjv
You may have missed it because of ALL OF THE MUSIC out today, but we put out a new track by De La Soul and it’s 🔥: https://t.co/jQxVAid5HW
How album exclusives might actually be a good thing for the growth of streaming (plus a few words about Prince): https://t.co/hTWWCcyMPA
A new episode of the podcast is out featuring SoundCloud+Twitter, Spotify Artists and a questionable set of sound FX https://t.co/Qfm7QOkRjv
You’ve watched Making A Murderer, haven’t you? And of course when I say watched I really mean binged, episode after episode flickering past in a haze of instant entertainment addiction. If you haven’t watched that show, you will almost certainly be familiar with the experience.
If there was any justice in the world Skepta would be a surprise guest on Later tonight to do a live version of Man (Gang) with Josh Homme
New @metronomy video is v.good if you’re looking for some dance moves inspiration: https://t.co/7chyOOBqYw
Wasn’t sure if Leyton was gentrified yet or not, but I just walked past a house where someone was loudly practicing on a harp
Pretty sure at this point the most radical thing Radiohead could do is announce their album is coming out in 2 months available everywhere

My first MP3 player was this terrible, brick-like contraption made by Nokia. I couldn’t afford a regular player, so to take part in the nascent digital music revolution I was forced to get something on a phone contact that also happened to play MP3s. I paid a big price, not just in terms of the...

Pretty sure spending £££ on billboards isn’t the best way of breaking a band… https://t.co/AJsrJbjfWU
…AND @NathLiddleHulme got to run around projecting the Strokes logo on different bits of London last like like a boss
Flying cars, hoverboards, and self-drying jackets — predicting the future is hard.
However, if we’re just to focus on music right now, it’s a fascinating time. Certain things are falling into place, which means that the path is maybe—just maybe—becoming clearer for the minute. At...
Azealia Banks is basically the Donald Trump of music, isn’t she? (Except that she’s not going to loose an election this year and disappear)
Must be a nightmare if they ever have to email people about the money they’ve collected… https://t.co/ckbDGf2zVG
It’s Motive Unknown Podcast record day! If you have any burning music biz questions for me and @mr_trick, now is the time.
Apple Music directly integrated into the iOS Messages app is a pretty big deal I think https://t.co/lnCfD5501C
We announced a new Strokes EP today. 3 radio premieres of 3 tracks on 3 different stations. All 3 are awesome: https://t.co/hoLge9RzaQ
It’s about 7pm on a dark November Friday. The weather has turned from unseasonably warm to appropriately bitter. That hasn’t stopped the shoppers flocking to one of the capitals premiere shopping destinations, however. They mill around, bags in tow, flicking Christmas signs lighting up their...
All I’m going to talk about on my panel about streaming at #MusicConnected later is Beyoncé and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me
Just ran the numbers on how much Universal is losing by Spotify being down for an hour: roughly about the same amount as a half decent car
I preferred Twitter before they started doing all this scripted comedy stuff. It’s so unrealistic now. https://t.co/hIuKNCNIGu
Apple Music Discovery Mix seems to be just a little bit “inspired” by Spotify Discovery Weekly, doesn’t it?
Given the news today, the new Adele video not being her just sitting on a giant pile of cash laughing for 4 mins is a missed opportunity
It was v.close, but @MusicAlly seems to have just won the Sunday musicbiz journo Olympics, sorry @musicbizworld https://t.co/60wbX5Un3L

If you work in the UK music industry, 2015 is probably proving to be quite a confusing year. Several elements that have been brewing for a while have now all snapped into relevance, turning everything upside down in the process.
For example, exactly how should you release a single now?
