  1. Nice video. Keep it up.
    Please do a deep dive on how streaming has affected independent filmmaking from the highest to the lowest levels.
    Thank you.

  2. I write songs and perform them in a band and I am very much in two minds about streaming services. On the one hand it is an excellent platform for anyone to share their music with the world. On the other hand there is so much of it that varies so widely in quality that it's hard to tell the good from the bad and so often people defer to the recommendations provided by the streaming service. These playlists and recommendations and the people that manage them, I feel will be the new "gatekeepers" of the music industry in the future and as with anything will be open to manipulation, making it harder for indy artists.

  3. NO NO NO PHIL. I'm getting off the rocket man. Don't play with me. I'm still a beautiful bastard who IS having a fantastic weekday. And i wanna jump into it With you. Don't fuck with me Phil.

  4. The creation of the internet was the death of gatekeeping for all forms of art, not just music. β€œMaking it” in whatever creative industry has taken on a new meaning.

  5. Spotify literally saved my ass by blowing up a beat of mine, from 200 monthly streams to 200K monthly streams in just one day! Its been a mad Ride but Spotify Streaming For me has been nothing but great πŸ™‚

    Good luck To you all πŸ™‚

  6. The music industry needs to adapt like other industries need too. Music was super freaked out about recordings and thought that people would stop playing actual instruments. But the truth is more people started playing instruments. My point is we just don’t know what the next step is really going be good or bad.

  7. I see it as a good thing that most money are made from live performance, while streaming adds some income and can make you known to audiences, so you can start to make money from live performance. That sounds just about ideal.

  8. Thank you for this deep dive I have a new understanding of what's going on with streaming I was under the impression that artist don't bennifet at all

  9. I remember relying on bandcamp, 8tracks, youtube and soundcloud for new music. This was when spotify wasn't in the states. Once it was, it was definitely a game changer. (Who remembers grooveshark?!)

  10. As an artist i have been able to get paid from streaming which has helped me re-invest the money into future projects, i'm still waiting for youtube to pay out haha

  11. OMFG SECOND TIME I ACCIDENTALLY CLICKED ON THIS CHANNEL!😁😁both times I was just genuinely interested in the content: and it’s been you guys! Wow☺️☺️

  12. I don't know who Billie Ellish is, no do I care to know. She is not a part of my day to day interests, but as long as white people are having a good time, I guess that's all that matters, right?

  13. not very "deep" for a "deep dive"….literally no information in this video that isn't published about 50000 other places. didn't even mention Bandcamp which has the most exciting business model FOR artists.
    tsk tsk tsk.

  14. Great video. I love my streaming service, I pay for Spotify and have done for 5 years now. I love how it allows you to listen to new lesser known artists, and the downloadable feature to listen on the go is a life safer 🀣

  15. Why is Billie Eilish a big star? Thanks to this video I have no idea. Very little was mentioned of the artist. Seems like a little bit of clickbait made its way into the title. It's little disappointing to find that on a Philip DeFranco channel.

  16. My cousin's rap career started this way. Uploaded to Spotify, blew up on Tik Tok, and now he has a record deal with Atlantic records. Sueco the Child. I think it opens the door for wildly creative people to share their talent with the world!

  17. I like Feist, and based on her description of her music, I think I'd like Olivera. Thanks for the exposure to a wide range of artists in this video. I always like seeing the smaller guys get some attention.

  18. I released my first EP under my name listed her, over a month ago now. Do I have not made any money yet from the streaming. I'm happy that my music is in the hands of the people who are important to me. Streaming services allow people to hear my music and that is what's important to me, at least at this stage of my career.

  19. One thing worth mentioning is that both Daniel Ek and Ludvig Strigeus of Spotify used to be heavily involved with uTorrent. Now they have a business that can make a profit for record labels from the free distribution of music.

  20. While you covered the positive sides, like avoiding gatekeepers, the ease of releasing music, I was wondering: How are they affected by a flood of music being released, and how do they stand out?

  21. Light is a little off, makes you look like a face cut out from a magazine stapled to a person.
    A little muted left and ritgh fill would help a lot.

  22. Hola bastardo hermoso ❀❀❀❀❀, fist bumps πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š, high fives/pats on the back βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹, extra thumbs up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Maria ❀❀❀❀❀πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Dylan ❀❀❀❀❀, fist bumps πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š, high fives/pats on the back βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹, extra thumbs up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  23. I like the way that music is now going, down here in oz, we have a digital radio station that uncovers musicians that are making their start naturally, which is very good, also video game music done by youtubers are starting to get recognised

  24. It's always been a dream of mine to create and share music and hearing this I actually think I might just be able to pull it off somewhat as a little side thing. Even if I make almost money from it, it sounds like a real possibility. Which is insane considering I'm just a little nobody from some Midwest rural state.
