Deezer’s push for User-Centric Payment System (UCPS) looks like the right step. It has always annoyed me that, because I don’t stream much, my money spent on streaming goes mostly to the popular music that I don’t listen to. I wonder whether the planned Deezer move to UCPS will really happen.
In any case, one of good ways to support the artists one listens to is buying their albums. If I really like some album, I buy it.
