SOLID GOLD: HOW DAFT PUNK'S 'DISCOVERY' RESHAPED DANCE MUSIC FOR THE DIGITAL AGE
It is not too much of an exaggeration to say that dance music entered a brave new world on February 26, 2001, when Daft Punk released their second album. ‘Discovery’ is one of the most important dance music releases of this, or any era; a record that anticipated the digital music age, the pivotal importance of video content and the growth of the online fan club; a record that sounded like nothing else and yet helped to usher in both EDM and the subsequent soft rock boom.

A new study has revealed that many music industry workers are subjected to high levels of stress.
Carried out by Skiddle, it has yielded in some alarming statistics. As well as 82% of people working in the industry saying they suffered with "continuous levels of stress", the study - which interviewed over 500 promoters, venue operators and event organisers - found:

10% said they developed symptoms associated with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) as a direct result of their work

47% said their work in music “often led to a constant feeling of anxiety and sadness.

In July, James Blake opened up about mental health and "suicidal thoughts".
THE ENDURING IMPACT OF STORE STREET ON UK CLUB CULTURE

But few places have had such an enduring impact in the years between then and now as Manchester’s The Warehouse Project at Store Street......
Spotify to allow artists to upload their own music
Spotify has launched a beta program allowing artists to upload their music to the platform directly.
Uploads were typically facilitated by major labels and third-party services, but the new feature lets music makers do it themselves.

Eligible artists will be able to set a release date, access their tracks' statistics and demographic data, and see projected royalty earnings....
