AudioLock – August Round Up

AudioLock Monthly Newsletter – August Edition

The summer is traditionally a quiet time for the recorded music industry with festival season in full swing. Despite this we have still seen some big releases coming through our system.

Even for artists whose music is a few months old it is worth noting that as interest in an artist in piqued by a great live show there can be a spike in piracy. For this reason we recommend protecting releases during periods of live or promotional activity so as to support sales and also de-clutter search results and social channels, helping curious fans find genuine content.

If you have any questions regarding how best to plan each part of your campaign so as to minimise your exposure to piracy whilst still maximising exposure please get in touch with


After a fantastic first year at Reeperbahn in 2015 we are very much looking forward to attending again this year.

BT Sport, Believe Digital and MMF Sports Day Social

One of our partners, Believe Digital, held a ‘sports day’ in partnership with BT Sport at Stratford Olympic park in conjunction with the MMF (Music Managers Forum). A short shuttle bus ride from Stratford station took us to the location where a BBQ network event was well under way. We caught up with friends and clients over drinks before the hotly contested rounders competition began. Thanks to Believe and the MMF for inviting us down.
