In this Interview, Chris chats with Trance DJ and producer Gareth Emery about his new venture Choon. Causing quite a stir in the industry, Choon is a blockchain based streaming service which aims to allow direct listener-to-artist relationships by cutting out all the industry middlemen. Benefits for artists include near real-time royalties, transparency in data, and smart contracts allowing the artist complete control of their works and splits. As a fan, you can create monetised playlists, know that your plays are directly supporting your favourite artists work, and have full confidence that you are supporting your favourite producers. Here we discuss how artists are paid, what are ‘notes’ and the roadmap for Choon over the next year. This is cutting-edge technology and here we chat to someone at the forefront.
