For Episode 128, David & the whole crew are together and rummaging through a lot of interesting news that gives us some insight in to the state of the music industry, right now.

From Spotify offering up an unconventionally filed IPO, to cryptocurrencies and their role in protecting artists’ rights, things are getting pretty exciting and charting some new territory. But that’s not to say the tried and true markers of success, such as live ticket sales and [*gasp*] VINYL SALES aren’t beaming as well…because they are.

Adding that DJ gear is an increasingly lucrative business, and an actual robot DJ is now DJing in a club in Prague, that leads to some interesting discussions about how the barriers of entry to DJing are dropping for newcomers to the craft, but the influence of AI and technology is becoming ever more influential for the future.

What does this mean for DJs today, and tomorrow? Sound off in the comments and let us know what YOU think!
