British music body the BPI is trying a new initiative to get music and tech companies in the same room – talking, not arguing. Its new ‘Innovation Hub’ will involve quarterly events with presentations and networking. The first happened last week with Absolute, Believe, BMG, Def Disco, Different, PIAS and Sony Music on the music side, and Chew, Gig Rev, Landmrk and SupaPass on the tech side. “The relationship between technology and record labels has always been important, and never more so than right now in today’s rapidly changing landscape,” said Vanessa Higgins, the BPI’s new Innovation Hub director, who’s in charge of the initiative. “We want to shape the future of the music industry, not react to the rules thrust upon us.”
