Check’s In the Mail: Sony Music Disburses $750 Million to Artists in ‘Spotify Windfall’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Sony Music has begun to distribute the $750 million in profit it collected from the April sale of 50% of its Spotify shares to the artists and distributed labels within the Sony system, Variety has confirmed. As previously reported, Sony, which held 5.7% of Spotify’s stock when the streaming service went public, will not count the funds against the artists’ and label’s unrecouped earnings.

Rather, the “Spotify windfall,” as Sme insiders are calling the disbursement, will be apportioned according to individual artist and label contract terms and based on earnings over the last 10 years — or since Sony’s initial investment in the Swedish streaming upstart — divisible against Sony’s own revenues from the Spotify stock gain for that time period.

What does this mean to the thousands of artists, representatives and some two million titles involved? The checks are in the mail, and set to arrive by the end of August.

Taylor Bennett Is Getting Comfortable Being Himself

Taylor Bennett Is Getting Comfortable Being Himself
There’s a streak of fierce independence in Taylor Bennett, and it’s not because he also happens to be Chance the Rapper’s little brother. The Chicago-based artist has been carving his own lane in the city’s stacked hip-hop community with promising and ebullient full-length projects like 2015’s Broad Shoulders and 2017’s Restoration of an American Idol, started his own record label, Tay Bennett Entertainment, which boasts singer Bianca Shaw and recent signee Zxxk, and came out as bisexual in early 2017.

‘Pas Honteux’ Directed by John D. Tucker

‘Pas Honteux’ Directed by John D. Tucker
John D. Tucker, Director Pas Honteux

Directed by John D. Tucker Pas Honteux is the story of a young African American slacker who wakes up one day speaking only French. The film brings to light the fact that we not only judge people by their looks but also by the way they speak.

So, what if a young urban African American wakes up and suddenly speaks only French?

The film begins and takes off from there and must be seen to be believed. It jumps from modern hip-hop inspired visuals to sharp contrast new wave bringing new meaning to both styles of filmmaking.

It turns out that the only person he can now communicate with is an older homeless street dwelling man who can speak French to him and they bond.

The film stars Travis Labranch (Shots Fired), Leon Lamar, and Javicia Leslie, is written by Sundance Alum Marcus J.

‘Mr. Robot’: The Show’s Best Music Moments, from Burning Cash with Phil Collins to Mocking ‘Full House’

‘Mr. Robot’: The Show’s Best Music Moments, from Burning Cash with Phil Collins to Mocking ‘Full House’
Over the course of “Mr. Robot’s” run, composer Mac Quayle has done a pretty effective job creating an eerie and ethereal (etheerieal?) backdrop to one man’s psychological self-sabotage. The ongoing trials of Elliot Alderson have been underscored by electronic-heavy instrumentals, highlighting the character in moments of triumph and moments of despair (more on that later).

As good as Quayle has been, the series has also benefited from a finely curated set of musical moments, with some of the most memorable “Mr. Robot” sequences bolstered by an impeccable soundtrack selected by music supervisors Amie Bond and Charlie Haggard. Some of these have been the numerous string of classical favorites used to set up Tyrell Wellick in various stages of upper-class crises. Others have drawn on electronic music icons that have influenced the show in more ways than one.

So as the show sets out for a new season, we

Mr. Robot season 2 episodes 1 & 2 review: Unmasked

Alec Bojalad Jul 14, 2016

Mr. Robot wisely takes a step back to re-establish itself for round two in a two-part premiere...

This review contains spoilers for parts one and two of Unmasked.

There’s an interesting, understated moment near the end of eps2.0unm4sk-pt1.tc, the typically byzantine spelling of “Part One” of the Mr. Robot season two premiere.

A woman is in line at Evil Corp’s Bank of E, desperately trying to show the teller behind the counter that she has paid off all her bills with the bank but the teller isn’t having it. The teller says that since F Society hacked into Evil Corp’s systems and erased all of their consumers’ debts, people have been presenting falsified documents showing that they’ve paid off their debts.

It’s interesting because it goes so far against the unbridled and unfocused euphoria that closed out USA Network

Spinning around over and over in the same infinitely repeatable loop of monochromatic humanity, Elliot’s turned himself into a walking hard drive in Mr. Robot‘s triumphant return, revolving over and over around the same point, writing all of his data down as he goes along. Round and round we go, as Lupe Fiasco’s Wallace Collection-sampling “Daydream” plays over the show’s haunting opening credits – and as the thrilling two-part season premiere plays out, we observe exactly what happens
