As of March 4, 2014, Beats Music has announced its acquisition of Topspin Media. Topspin, launched in June of 2007, is an online application that provides direct-to-consumer merchandising and marketing for musicians and other creative professionals. In yesterday’s blog post, Beats Music blog post, Beats Music announced its deal to acquire Topspin and its plans for the future to combine “music discovery and direct relationships between artists and fans in a revolutionary way.” Topspin noted in its blog announcement that customers will experience no immediate changes, and that a Beats Music team is now working in Topspin’s ArtistLink to “lead the industry in empowering artists in their service.” This deal was spearheaded by previous Topspin CEO and current CEO of Beats Music, Ian C. Rogers.

Last night we held the S’more StartupSB: Fireside Chat about music, techs & startups event at our office and had an absolute blast. We were joined by Brad Barrish, formerly from Topspin Media, Eric Shiflett from Santa Barbara Bowl, Tucker Bodine from Playback Recording Studio, and Aaron Foreman from SONOS. Our very own Mike Wald moderated the chat about digital music marketing and technology. An interesting new startup called BeatStream also gave a great presentation about the new social music platform they are developing. We were also stoked to present the debut of our new product and app, Storywall! More information and news coming on that soon.

The event was also catered by one of our local favorites, Rusty’s and of course we finished off the night by making tasty s’mores by the fire. Thank you to StartupSB for asking us to host their great event at our office for the second year in a row. It was a wonderful night filled with interesting people and interesting chat!

Beats Logo Renowned music industry veteran Jimmy Iovine’s new project is almost ready to be released to the public. It is a new, online, subscription based music service. Now that in itself is nothing new as we already have Spotify amongst other streaming services. So what’s different this time around? What will make this successful?? Take a look as I attempt to break down several different features of this new service recently named: Beats Music.

The CEO & co-founder of Beats Electronics, Jimmy Iovine, plans to launch his new online music streaming service Beats Music (formally known as project Daisy) in the next couple of months. Noticing the lack of context and emotional connection in music streaming today, he has recently hired an expert team of curators to give the online music streamer a more personalized experience. If you want to find out who the curators are just click here.

We were so happy to get to work with longtime friend, Merlo Podlewski a.k.a JRADIO on a new microsite for him to promote his upcoming EP release. Many know Merlo as the bassist in Jack Johnson’s band, and those of you who have been to a Jack show have likely seen Merlo put his bass down, grab the mic and spit it hard. Now finally shifting focus towards his solo project, JRADIO is gearing up to release a new EP and hit the road.

WilliamDuvall.com

William Duvall, lead singer of Alice in Chains, approached Oniracom for a custom blog site to host his personal thoughts and day-to-day happenings. We skinned his Tumblr blog with a custom background image, social navigation, and a Topspin widget in the header of the page. Our design compliments the intuitive functionality built into Tumblr, and this option eliminates any needs to learn a content management system. We also created and branded William’s social networks as a foundation for his future brand health.

The talented web team over at Oniracom just launched a fantastic Topspin-powered pre-order campaign for this release with five different packages to cater to every type of fan.  Check out all the offers here.  Are you the type of fan that wants a free download from Matisyahu? We got that too:
