Musician and producer Skream has been talking about digital music and dance artists, but rather than wading into the streaming debate, he’s been talking more interestingly about the continued relevance of the album format. “I think albums are important. Look, there’s a million-and-one singles released every day through things like SoundCloud, where you can have a record out as soon as you put a new tune up,” he told FACT. “You end up with this entire fucking thing where it’s hard to release a single, because it’s so easy to hear music. I post something on SoundCloud; next day, it has a thousand-and-one reviews on it, but it’s like… you just put it up. It’s not necessarily a single, it’s just something you want everyone to hear. Albums are important. It depends on what you’re doing, but I think they are important because it leaves some sort of structure , rather then people just putting out tunes.”
