‘Open internet for Europe’

internetopen

To: Members of the ITRE committee / European Parliament

The undersigned streaming companies believe that an open internet is a fundamental to protecting consumer interests and innovative services in Europe.

The European Commission’s ‘Connected Continent’ Proposal is laudable and a good first step to protecting Internet consumers. However, a stronger vision on the open internet and net neutrality is needed for Europe to achieve the important goals set forth in “Connected Continent.”

We understand that certain incumbent operators have called for regulatory flexibility to offer specialised services. The text’s current approach unnecessarily impairs the open internet, resulting in a weaker consumer protection and in serious impediments for the innovation of services and start-ups in the European market. The policy outcome this body should pursue is one where consumers experience an increasingly speedy best-efforts connections to the Internet, without regard to whatever rules are adopted defining specialized services.

We hereby call on you to amend the Proposal in such a way that specialized services are defined narrowly, to ensure that European consumers experience all the benefits of a truly open internet.

Sincerely,
Netflix, SoundCloud, Rdio, 22tracks

Video of the day #765 #766 #767 #768

Like Molly, “Roxanne” appears to be a girl’s name for some kind of drug. New York duo Cable are hanging out in a dive bar with a dealer behind the counter. There’s a cameo for Devonté Hynes of Blood Orange, who produced the track.

 

Two men (a father and a son?) haunt this dark, violent and frankly disturbing video from Spanish band TERRITOIRE. “Blanc”‘s skewed perspective and bleak colours add to the mystery.

 

Two young boys doing what young boys do: play, fight, do gross stuff, climb trees, dream. Make sure to stick around for the last scene of British composer/musician Adrian Corker’s new video “Interdependence”.

 

Instead of a sermon, this congregation is treated to a choreography set to “I Kill Giants” by New Zealand band The Naked And Famous. I don’t know if it’s the Holy Spirit, but something’s definitely taken hold of these two dancers

Interview: 22tracks – Record Of The Day

Vincent Reinders (Founder / CCO) was interviewed by Record Of The Day. Read the full interview here.

Video of the day #718 #719 #720

PUP’s gigs are so rowdy that the Toronto band needs to bring a professional medical team along to patch up and even resusciate the band members in their hilariously violent new video “Reservoir”.

 

In his new video “Sh!t”, Atlanta rapper Future comes to South Central Los Angeles to meet with some OGs and track down a guy he has unfinished business with. He drives around in a hearse, to give you an idea of his intentions.

 

Here’s a ballrooom with about two dozen immaculately dressed guests, moving around to “Ego Free Sex Free” by New York artist Autre Ne Veut. Did you notice the guy in the grey suit?

Top22 #10

Every Friday we present the latest number ones of our Top22 charts, the most trending tracks on 22tracks!
For this week we got three cities with the same number ones as last week. So let’s start with the city where something changed at the top.

Paris:
Paris is the only city with a new number one, this time we got Jeni with a track that’s probably covered thousands of time. But her version of ‘Suit & Tie’ is the cream of the crop, it is again a track from JP MANO’s Soul/R&B section. Proving that he got the taste you all appreciate.
22tracks.com/share/par/top22

Amsterdam:
In Amsterdam you can still find the funky edit of Blackstreet’s No Diggity by Bondax on top of the chart, it was selected by FS Green& Full Crate for their Soul playlist.
22tracks.com/share/ams/top22

Brussels:
Last week he could say that he was the first artist with an exclusive as number one for the Top22 in Brussels, this week he can say that he’s the first artist with an exclusive as number one and that for two weeks in a row. Yes Brihang is still ruling Brussels with ‘Periode Jalisco.’
22tracks.com/share/bru/top22

London:
We’re guessing Reggae is quite popular in London these days because Fat Freddy’s Drop is still on top with ‘Blackbird.’ Proving (again) the excellent taste of Real Roots, because the guys picked this tune a few weeks ago for their Reggae section in London.

Top22 #6

Every Friday we present the latest number ones of our Top22 charts, the most trending tracks on 22tracks!

Amsterdam:
For the last couple of days we got a new number one in Amsterdam, which is ‘De Formule’ (English: The Formula) from De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig. This is also their newest single from their upcoming album, which will be released on Top Notch and can be found in Snelle Jelle’s HiphopNL playlist.
22tracks.com/share/ams/top22

Brussels:
Brussels got the most recent number one (since yesterday), which is Dornik’s ‘Something About You’ and is quite remarkable. Because it’s also the editor’s pick of Amsterdam for our last newsletter. You can find the track in Disco Naïveté’s Pop playlist.
22tracks.com/share/bru/top22

London:
Because last week we got a temporarily number one in London (which was part of the Ninja Tune Takeover), it makes probably sense to present you all a new number one. Which is ‘Somethin’ Bout You’ by Follow Me and can be found in the Soul/R&B playlist by PinBoard Blog.
22tracks.com/share/ldn/top22

Paris:
For Paris nothing changed (again), so Action Bronson (featuring Wiz Khalifa) is still holding the crown in this city with ‘The Rockets.’ A track which was selected by Emmanuel Forlani for his Hiphop playlist.

Top22 #5

Every Friday we present the latest number ones of our Top22 charts, the most trending tracks on 22tracks!

Amsterdam:
We got a new number one in Amsterdam since the beginning of this week, they are the (self-proclaimed) best rappers from The Netherlands who formed this group called Gmn86ies. Together with Kleine Viezerik they took over the crown with the track ‘Doag.’
22tracks.com/share/ams/top22

Brussels:
Also in Brussels we got a new number one since the beginning of this week, which is J.Cole’s ‘Crooked Smile’ featuring TLC. The tune was recently released on ‘Born Sinner.’
22tracks.com/share/bru/top22

London:
In London we got a temporarily new number one, because Letherette’s ‘After Dawn’ is part of the Takeover by Ninja Tune. So enjoy it before it’s gone!
22tracks.com/share/ldn/top22

Paris:
Only in Paris nothing changed, that’s why Action Bronson (featuring Wiz Khalifa) still got the right to call his ‘The Rockets’ the most trending track in Paris.
