The Roundhouse

What’s that? Why yes, I am ‘approving’ my own thing. But it’s going to be really good, I promise. Look, just stick with me, OK? We’re friends, right? OK, cool.

So, as you may already know, over the summer we’re holding a series of live events at The Roundhouse, where I – that’s Andy Malt – get together with a panel of clever and funny people to talk about the latest news and trends in the music industry. The first took place last month and thankfully went very well. We discussed the independent labels’ battle with YouTube, Amazon’s new music service, streaming data being included in the singles chart, and then finished off by insulting Gary Barlow, amongst other things.

Highlights of all of that can be heard in the 30 minute podcast we put out afterwards, but if you weren’t there, then you missed out on some great chat. All that Amazon stuff, for example. Not in the podcast at all. And it was really interesting too. Plus, there was a great audience Q&A, which also stayed in the room. And you missed the bit where the air conditioning blew all the doors open. It was a veritable thrill ride.

Don’t make the mistake of missing out again. This month there’s a brilliant panel lined up: Andrea Leonelli from Digital Music Trends, Claire Southwick from Transgressive Producers, artist and producer Dan Le Sac and Simon Pursehouse from Sentric Music.

So, please come and join us on 29 Jul at 7.30pm. Tickets are available right now from The Roundhouse website for £10 – or £5 for subscribers to the CMU Digest (check last Friday’s email from the discount code, if you’re one of them).

Here are those edited highlights of what happened last month:
