Anjunabeats releases statement on will.i.am’s ‘Rebound’ theft

About two weeks after the story broke about will.i.am illegally sampling part of “Rebound” from Arty and Mat Zo, Anjunabeats – the label run by the Above & Beyond guys and the rightful owner of the track – has issued an official statement on Facebook.

“Although Arty (but not Mat Zo) was credited in the sleeve notes, this is not the same as obtaining permission,” reads the statement. “To present someone else’s work as your own, you need to seek permission, agree terms and file paperwork, which has not happened in this case.”

Live Nation buying stake in EDC’s Insomniac Events

EDC 2012 - by Kevin Verkruijssen

Ticket seller Live Nation is close to closing a $50 million deal to acquire a roughly 50 percent stake in Insomniac Events, the organizer behind the Electric Daisy Carnival, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Live Nation hasn’t been the only one who’s wanted a piece of the Insomniac action.  Robert Sillerman of SFX Entertainment was among other bidders interested in a stake of the company, and is rumored to have offered at least a $100 million for it.

Insomniac and Live Nation declined to confirm details of the deal with The Journal.

Congress Theater can stay open: judge rules

Krewella at Congress Theater Dec. 29, 2012 - by Mitch Doner

A Cook County judge ruled on Tuesday that Chicago’s embattled Congress Theater can stay open after passing a Monday safety inspection.

Judge James McGing said the theater that regularly hosts popular EDM events – and others – can resume ticket sales, but the first floor’s capacity is capped at 3,000 people, according to DNAinfo Chicago. The second floor balcony remains closed until updated lighting and a new generator are installed.

The most serious concerns about the Congress, though – a fire curtain and its ventilation system – were resolved by Monday’s inspection. “The majority of the most serious violations are” in compliance, city attorney Judy Frydland told DNAinfo after Tuesday’s hearing. ”With all that, I just don’t think we have a basis for closure.”

In a hearing last week, McGing determined the venue could remain open for the weekend’s shows, but its ability to sell tickets for future events relied upon the result of Tuesday’s hearing.

The Congress and its owner, Eddie Carranza aren’t out of hot water yet though. The theater will undergo another round of inspections and hearings the week of May 6. There are also liquor commission and public nuisance reviews currently pending against Carranza and the Congress.
