Radio Tools tracks music plays on radio and TV stations

The ‘will streaming kill radio’ debate rumbles on, but it certainly hasn’t happened yet: radio airplay remains important for many artists, and tracking it globally remains a challenge.
We’ve written about startups like World Airplay Radio Monitor (Warm) in the past, and now there’s a new contender: Maltese startup Radio Tools.
It’s analysing the music played on more than 48k radio stations around the world, as well as 1.2k satellite TV channels.

BPI launches its equality and justice advisory group

British music industry body the BPI has launched an equality and justice advisory group, which it says will “advise and challenge the BPI on matters initially focused on race and gender in order to further support and promote equality and inclusion in music alongside other industry initiatives”.
It’s an expansion of the existing Brits Diversity Advisory Group, which was created in 2016 after criticism of a lack of diversity in the Brit Awards and its voting body.
The new group, which will have a wider industry focus, is co-chaired by Kwame Kwaten, Paulette Long OBE, and Ged Doherty.

Ascap Lab Seed Project reveals first projects from its teams

The more music industry entities working hands-on with startups and developers the better, as far as we’re concerned.
The latest example is US collecting society Ascap, whose innovation arm Ascap Lab has been running an 11-week ‘Seed Project’ challenge for graduate students in New York.
Five teams were involved, exploring new ways to interact with music. You can read the results of their work here.

Oda connected speakers have their own season of concerts

Oda is a startup making a pair of speakers (also called Oda) that look very nice indeed – “made of wood, glass, cotton, and steel: materials that are humble and human, not technological” as the blurb puts it – with as much attention to detail paid to their audio innards.
However, what interests us about the $299 speakers (which work with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) is the music that comes with them.
Oda will be running four seasons of music performances a year: 12 weekends in each of winter, spring, summer and autumn, plus artists in residence performing throughout the week during that time.

Deezer commissioned covers for its new ‘InVersions’ album

Like its streaming rivals, Deezer is experimenting with commissioning original music that won’t put labels’ noses out of joint.
The latest example is a compilation album called ‘InVersions’, which is a collection of cover versions by 10 independent artists.
Fontaines DC, Arlo Parks, Dream Wife, Alfie Templeman and Chloe Moriondo are among the artists chosen – the latter with a very on-trend cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’.
Standards by the Beach Boys, Robyn, Bruce Springsteen, Amy Winehouse and Sinéad O’Connor are among the songs covered, and the album has been released through the Deezer Originals program.
