Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: Jay Z/JT

Welcome to a fresh new, semi-regular column called (as you may have seen from the title) Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: a look ‘behind the music’ at the marketing, promotion and advertising of records, the way our favourite acts conduct their business, and the flipside of stage shows: the money. As

Live Review: Wireless 2013 – Friday

Since its inception in 2005, there haven’t been many festivals that have been able to compete with – the newly Yahoo! sponsored – Wireless. From its first outing eight years ago now, which featured a lofty cast of headliners including New Order, Basement Jaxx and Kasabian, it’s …
