UK record industry collecting society PPL has promoted Titania Altius to Head Of Member Services and Dan Millington to Head Of Client Services. “I am delighted that Titania and Dan have been appointed into these newly created roles”, says Kate Reilly, PPL’s Chief Membership & People Officer. “PPL’s employees are at the heart of everything we do on behalf of our recording rightsholder and performer members, and I am looking forward to working with them to deliver the best possible service”.



The UK’s Music Managers Forum has announced Khush Quiney as its 2022 Student Trailblazer. The award is part of the MMF’s Educational Associate programme and recognises students who have demonstrated a proven enterprise and enthusiasm for music management in the past twelve months. Currently studying at Middlesex University, Quiney represents rapper JClarke.



Christine And The Queens will be reading your pre-schooler a bedtime story on New Year’s Day. Provided that you have a pre-schooler and put them in front of a TV showing CBeebies. He will be reading ‘The Moon Keeper’, suspended on a crescent moon on stage at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Catch it at 6.50pm on 1 Jan or on iPlayer.



Berwyn has released two new tracks, ‘3450’ and ‘Chasing Lights (Demo)’. “’3450’ understands the trauma that has been left by other experiences, it dwells on what has shaped who I am”, he says. “’Chasing Lights’ continues that reflection in the present moment, after the unpacking. A little window into where my head’s at with it all now. All in all I’m just dancing along my own timeline”.

Commodo has released new EP ‘Mysterious Trax 002’. Check out ‘Eyewitness’, which is just so bloody good.
