One Media IP has acquired the licensor’s royalty share of 21 Vision‘s concert recordings catalogue, which includes rare recordings of performances by heritage artists like Glenn Millar, The Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn and Cole Porter. One Media IP has already been licensing the catalogue since 2009. “We have worked with 21 Vision for twelve years, marketing their music catalogue on a royalty sharing basis”, says One Media IP CEO Michael Infante. “By buying out the licensor’s royalty share, One Media secures the rights to the catalogue on an in-perpetuity basis, whilst also increasing its margin by taking a bigger share of the royalty”.



SoundCloud has added Troy Carter to its board of directors. In addition, he will act as strategic advisor to CEO Michael Weissman. “Troy is one of the few leaders that have operated and succeeded in all sides of the music industry”, says Weissman. “It’s hard to think of someone better suited to join SoundCloud as we enter this new phase. I am honoured to welcome him to the SoundCloud board”.

The UK’s Association of Independent Music has appointed Nadia Khan as its new Chair, taking over from Ninja Tune’s Peter Quicke. “I’m honoured to be the new Chair of AIM and to be working more closely with CEO Paul [Pacifico] and the AIM team”, she says. “I’ve been an active board member over the last few years, and took part in creating the new job role of Entrepreneurship & Outreach Manager, welcoming Ben Wynter into this position to help AIM reach and support communities which have been historically under-represented within the membership. I have more ideas to bring to the table, and look forward to continuing to make positive change”.



The Prodigy have announced that they are making a documentary about themselves, with Pulse Films and director Paul Dugdale, which will tell their story from the band’s beginnings to the death of vocalist Keith Flint. “After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band”, say Liam Howlett and Maxim. “It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the people’s band – The Prodigy”.

Porter Robinson has released the video for his latest single ‘Look At The Sky’. His new album, ‘Nurture’, is out on 23 Apr.

Cherry Glazerr have released new single ‘Big Bang’. “Some songs take on a lot of forms until they finally end up the way they do and this was definitely one of those”, says the band’s Clementine Creevy. “It lived a few different lives for sure, I just kept changing up the rhythms until I was like, ‘oh yeah that’s it right there!'”

Elkka has released the video for ‘I. Miss. Raving’. “When this track was originally written I had no understanding of when the sentiment of nostalgia, frustration and unending desire to be out raving, to be alongside friends and strangers, would expire”, she says. “But here we are and it still feels just raw as it did when I wrote this towards the beginning of last year”.

Christopher Bono and Gareth Jones have announced that they will release new album ‘A Walk In The Woods’ on 7 May. From it, this is ‘Fibonacci Failure’.

Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy have announced that they will release a new album together, titled ‘Superwolves’, on 30 Apr. “I love the challenge to write melodies for Will to sing”, says Sweeney. “Knowing that Will’s voice will elevate the melody makes me reach higher and dig deeper for the tune”. Here’s new single, ‘Hall Of Death’.

The Body have released the video for ‘A Pain Of Knowing’, from their latest album ‘I’ve Seen All I Need To See’.
