streamers battle for africa

ON A MAY NIGHT IN THE LEKKI DISTRICT of Lagos, Nigeria, the emerging rapper Santi filled a small theater called The FreeMe Space with young locals eager to hear him perform songs from his latest album, Mandy & the Jungle. Most of the concertgoers had discovered him on streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music or the Nigerian service Spinlet — all of which are that much more important in a country with few record stores. The packed theater was a sign that streaming is taking off in Africa, allowing local acts to develop bigger fan bases. $2.5T Consumer spending expected in Africa by 2030, according to the Brookings Institution Right now, several streaming services from Europe, the United States, China and Africa itself are competing for the Nigerian market as well as…

dr. john

Dr. John, who died June 6 at age 77, has been called “America’s premier roots musician,” but that’s not all he was. For 60 years, he was the leading global ambassador for the musical traditions of New Orleans. Though he worked with rock musicians, including Van Morrison and The Rolling Stones, he represented a direct connection to the city’s unique history of Dixieland, brass bands and swamp rhythms — which he learned directly from such masters as Fats Domino and Professor Longhair. In both his own work and numerous collaborations, he passed along the spirit of Mardi Gras to the likes of Aretha Franklin and Eric Clapton. Born Mac Rebennack, the shamanistic pianist hit the top 10 in 1973 with “Right Place Wrong Time” and won six Grammy Awards — tellingly,…

dj’ing in the cloud

In 2012, deadmau5 almost single-handedly burst the EDM bubble when he said that all DJs do in concert is “press play” on an iTunes playlist. On June 3, seven years later, Apple announced that it was dismantling iTunes, thereby marginalizing its download store and signaling that DJs may soon need to prepare for a post-download world where, presumably, some will have to press play on services like SoundCloud and Beatport — at least, that is, if the Wi-Fi works. $1.04B Download sales revenue for 2018, a 26% year-over-year decline, according to the RIAA. Most music fans take for granted the reliable internet connection necessary to access millions of songs on streaming services. But professional DJs can’t risk a service hiccup in a club. “DJs kind of live in a bubble,” says Dirtybird…
