At the end of 2013 Kim Dotcom announced his new music service called Baboom. Dotcom said he had spent four years working on the service. The platform gives artists 90 percent of all streaming and download revenue.

By the end of 2014 Dotcom announced he was leaving Baboom, as the music industry was not eager to work with any company he was involved with.

Now Baboom has entered a partnership with Fuel TV, a Lisbon based sports and culture video platform that is distributed in 61 countries.

Fuel TV seems to be a direct competitor to Red Bull Media, but focuses on targeting young males.

They will be using music from Baboom artists and will feature these artists in live shows.

Sky Ferreira Blasts Label for Lack of Support

Sky Ferreira has been plotting a new album called Masochism, but it seems that the pop singer is having some behind-the-scenes trouble, since she has attacked her record label in a Twitter spree. In the rant reportedly posted yesterday (June 25), Ferreira complained that her international label, Polydor, hadn’t supported her financially or artistically, and that 2013’s Night Time, My Time didn’t sell well because it didn’t have enough promotion. The tweets in question have since been deleted, but not before her messages were transcribed. Contact Music reports…

Pang Attack - "Beg the Local Shrines" (video)

This spring, dreamy Montreal outfit Pang Attack released their EP Sleepy Fell Down, and as they go about promoting it with Canadian tour dates, they have shared a video for the track “Beg the Local Shrines.” The swirling post-pop song provides the ethereal sonic backdrop for a a very chilly-looking dance session in which someone named Lola dances while clad in underwear and nothing else. The whole thing is displayed in slow motion, which adds to the dream-like mood. The clip was directed by Fabrice Bouty and Sydney Said. Scroll past Pang Attack’s tour schedule to watch it. …

​Lianne La Havas Reveals How Her Past Influenced

“I’m different now from what you’ve seen before,” Lianna La Havas assures Exclaim! firmly as we discuss her new video for the song “Unstoppable.” “I wanted to make something that was a performance. I thought it should be something that was very simple.” The video, where La Havas is filmed alone in large, interesting rooms dancing in a very theatrical style, is quite the performance, but simple is an undersell. As much a testament to individual strength as it as a plea to a departed lover for a do-over, “Unstoppable” is notable as one of the few times La Havas has presented her music…

Raz Fresco Contemplates the Creative Evolution of

Canadian rapper, producer and Bakers Club collective co-founder Raz Fresco is readying the release of his self-produced debut, Pablo Frescobar, on July 1 under his recently launched indie label Black Light, paired with distribution by New York City-based label Duck Down Music Inc. With hopes of successfully breaking into the U.S. market — following years of major placements, mixtapes and independent legwork in Canada — features from Joey Bada$ $ , Chuck Inglish and Raekwon will certainly aid the transition for the 20-year-old hip-hop artist.   But it seems more likely that Raz’s…

Nicolas Jaar Issues Surprise Freelease,

Earlier this year, electronic artist Nicolas Jaar announced plans to deliver a new score to director Sergei Parajanov’s 1969 film, The Color of Pomegranates. It seemingly won’t be paired with the flick in cinema houses anytime soon, so Jaar opted to release his score today (June 24) for free. The New York producer announced the freelease this afternoon via Twitter, with his message including a link for a download of the 20-song score. Pomegranates also comes with liner notes that describe that some of the songs were made before Jaar had even heard of Parajanov’s film,…
