B2B streaming platform Tuned Global has signed a licensing deal with Hong Kong-based social media app Lyka. “By integrating a music feature into the Lyka app our goal is to drive community engagement and stickiness”, says Lyka CEO Ryan Baird. “Partnering with Tuned Global will give us access to world-leading technology with a proven track record working with enterprises in Southeast Asia, allowing us to bring these exciting new features to our community members easily, in a matter of months”.



Canadian song rights collecting society SOCAN has appointed Jennifer Brown as its new CEO. She first joined the organisation in 1995 and became interim CEO following the departure of her predecessor in the role, Eric Baptiste, last year. “Jennifer Brown’s work at SOCAN is exemplary, her leadership abilities are remarkable, and her passion for the interests of our members and stakeholders is unsurpassed”, says Marc Ouellette, President of SOCAN’s board of directors.



Rico Nasty has released new single ‘Magic’. The track is taken from her upcoming mixtape ‘Rx’.

St Vincent has released her version of Metallica’s ‘Sad But True’, her contribution to the upcoming tribute to the band’s ‘Black Album’ marking its 30th anniversary.

Lump have released new single ‘We Cannot Resist’. “It wants to be this massive pop track, but it’s been twisted”, says the duo’s Mike Lindsay. “I like that when the chorus comes in you’re like ‘wow!’ – it’s this huge pop chorus – but then it becomes really creepy with the whispered ‘we cannot resist”‘.

The Bug has announced that he will release new album, ‘Fire’, on 27 Aug – his first solo album since 2014’s ‘Angels & Devils’. “I’ve always been addicted to the physicality and intensity of sound”, he says. “I started The Bug because I wanted to make music for a soundsystem I had in storage, and the live experience of Bug has always been something I wanted to reflect on record – I’m always looking for fuel to the fire and live shows – and missing live shows in lockdown was a real impetus”. Here’s new single ‘Clash’, featuring Logan_olm.

Moonchild Sanelly has released new single ‘Yebo Teacher’. The track, she says, “is about putting the work in, not just in school but in life. My analogy of a teacher talking to her students is simple – it’s showing people that during your time on this earth, when you take on a task, you finish it. It’s about completion, and it’s about effort. I’m asking people of all ages – ‘Have you done your homework? Are you working hard to get to the level you want to be at in life?'”

Appleblim has announced new album ‘Infinite Hierglyphics’, out on 30 Jul. Listen to new track ‘Rileys Spiral’ here.
