Tim Cook: “Apple Music will forever change the way you perceive music”

“Apple Music will forever change the way you perceive music,” Tim Cook said at a conference in San Francisco to everyone in attendance, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of music lovers who watched their homes.

Details about the corporation’s project, a service that will compete with Spotify and Tidal, have long been unknown.

Roshin Murphy: “They said that I was not a pop star. Here are the cheeks!”

Roshin Murphy is back with a new excellent album. How many years have passed? Eight from her last studio album, which was produced by a whole team of hitmakers. However, there was not a single hit on the album. But the failure of the album “Overpowered” did not become an occasion to give up. This lady is always on the move. Its genre is not accidentally called “dance pop.”

Early morning. Berlin is struggling with one of the last winter frosts and Roshin Murphy has caught a cold, but thanks to her medications she stoically holds. She is wearing a black coat and retro sneakers from the assortment of the 80s. It fits perfectly into the atmosphere of the “Monkey Bar”, related to the recreated Bikini complex (an architectural structure with cultural and historical significance – approx. Ed.) In the western part of Berlin. He is one of the few places where a DJ can play vinyl. Bring it back.

I am glad to see you again and speak with you after 8 long years. How does the return feel for you?
Oh, great. But all this time I did not sit with hands clasped. You can hear me in the compositions of Tony Christie, Boris Dlugosh, The Feeling and Crookers. But here is a different scale. I give interviews in different countries, I will go on Continue reading
