Ian Rogers: The Man Behind the Beats

Beats Music has many parents, it seems. Who’s been doing what? What has Trent’s role been?

Trent is a Renaissance man. Most people know him as an artist. But he’s also a very talented designer. He led the product design and the user interface. Jimmy [Iovine] and Julie [Pilat] worked on the curation aspects. Jimmy’s very hands on. He once called me to point out that there was something wrong with our summer barbeque playlist. Both he and Julie have keen ears and impeccable tastes, which you’ll see reflected in the service.
