Cherie Hu returns to Music Tectonics for a special news roundup! Cherie digs deeper into why Hip Hop doesn't dominate YouTube's top premieres (a story from her Water + Music newsletter). What does Peloton's licensing problem mean for how the fitness industry uses music? What does Snapchat hope to gain from gaming? Is sacred music the original AR technology? Cherie chats about it all (and much more) with host Dmitri Vietze and resident music tech expert Tristra Newyear Yeager. To stay up to date with Cherie's music + tech insights, subscribe to her newsletter and follow her on twitter. She'll be speaking at the first Music Tectonics Conference in October, too!
