I don't think I like this.
I don't like this at all. But I do love how the independants are staying strong and not giving into google. music industry survives off it's bottom layer, giving talent a chance with small shows and small releases. although youtube is one of the bigger platforms to showcase your music, you can still get more credibility from streaming sites such as soundcloud.
Look at the artist Ekkah for example, big labels after her but on an smaller one at the moment, youtube hits are nothing but 50,000 plays from this one track on Soundcloud. She's going to be big!
