Curator's Note:

As the 90s came to a close, the business of music began to change profoundly. New technology allowed artists to record and produce their own music and music videos, and the internet became a free-for-all distribution platform for musicians to promote themselves to audiences across the world. The result was a massive influx of artists onto the cultural scene, and audiences were left wondering how to sort through them all. In this episode we discuss these massive changes, and reveal how music blogs and websites have arisen as the new arbiters of quality. 

 

Featuring:

Jon Cohen, Co-Founder, FADER Label

Ryan Dombal, Senior Editor Pitchfork

Blake Whitman, VP of Creative Development, Vimeo

Anthony Volodkin, Founder, Hype Machine
