City Slang boss calls for governments to close the ‘value gap’
Posted on: 2 mars 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

Christof Ellinghaus, founder of Berlin-based indie label City Slang, is keen for governments to take action to remove YouTube’s safe harbours, and thus address the ‘value gap’.
“We’re all stopping to sell records at this moment. Our bands are getting bigger and bigger, but we are selling less and less of their music,” said Ellinghaus, citing the example of a City Slang band that recently played to a crowd of 2,500 people in Warsaw.
“That stands in no relation to our sales or streams.. Everybody is just on YouTube. And so as long as YouTube gets away with this – and that’s one of the things that the governments of the entire world really need to figure out – it’s going to hinder Spotify,” he said.
