DISCOGS REVEALS LIST OF TOP 25 BEST-SELLING TECHNO RECORDS

28.03.2017


Dis-cogs has shared details of the top 25 best-selling records tagged as 'techno' on the site.



While this means some of the list, posted via the Discogs blog, definitely aren't what you'd refer to as techno (Mr. Oizo's 'Flat Bear', for example), the likes of Ben Klock's 2009 effort 'Before One', and Jeff Mills' 'Kat Moda' EP, which features classic track 'The Bells', are included.

The overall best-seller, meanwhile, was Mall Grab's 'Sun Ra' EP at 520 copies, quite a jump from second place — Convextion's '2845' LP — which shifted 355 records.

Earlier this week, Discogs CEO Kevin Lewandowski announced the company will be launching an online equipment marketplace called Gearogs next month.

THE CHAINSMOKERS DROP NEW TRACK 'THE ONE'

28.03.2017


The Chainsmokers release of their debut album, 'Memories...Do Not Open', with a brand-new single called 'The One'.



Debuted by Zane Lowe earlier today, the song is about two things according to the duo. Firstly, how they're "missing out on memories and moments with our friends and families" due to the overnight success of tracks like 'Closer', and secondly, it's about "knowing a relationship is just over and isn't working out but being too scared to end it".

The track itself is a full blown ballad of sorts that marks a sizeable shift away from the duo's more tongue-and-cheek EDM output and has been released alongside a new Snapchat filter

The Chainsmokers' debut album 'Memories...Do Not Open', which drops on Friday 7th April, features collaborations with Coldplay, Jhene Aiko, Florida Georgia Line, Emily Warren and Louane.

The duo will embark on a 40-city North American tour to support the album's release, dates for which can be found here.

Supreme Court Won't Hear Appeal in Capitol Records Vs Vimeo Copyright Dispute

28.03.2017


The ruling said websites are protected from liability for inadvertently hosting music recorded before 1972.



The Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from record companies that want to pursue copyright infringement claims against music site Vimeo for hosting unauthorized recordings from the Beatles, Elvis Presley and other classic artists.


The justices on Monday left in place a federal appeals court ruling that said websites are protected from liability even for older music recorded before 1972.


Capitol Records and other music companies sued Vimeo for violating copyright laws based on 199 videos uploaded by users. A federal judge ruled a federal "safe harbor" law did not cover pre-1972 recordings that are protected by state law.


But a New York federal appeals court overturned that ruling, saying service providers would incur heavy costs to monitor every posting or risk "crushing liabilities" under state law.

UNLIMITED FINES FOR ONLINE TICKET TOUTS USING BOTS

16.03.2017


UK GOVERNMENT PROPOSES UNLIMITED FINES FOR ONLINE TICKET TOUTS USING BOTS


UK government proposes unlimited fines for online ticket touts using bots.



The UK government has proposed a change to the Digital Economy Bill to combat online ticket touts.

Suggested in reponse to May 2016's Waterson Report on secondary ticketing, the change would make it illegal to use bots to bypass maximum ticket restrictions in order to buy up tickets en masse, and could result in unlimited fines for those found guilty.

“It’s unacceptable that touts are misusing technology to bypass security measures and buy up vast numbers of tickets before real fans get the chance, only to sell them on at rip-off prices,” said Matt Hancock, Minister of State for Digital and Culture.

“It’s a growing problem that affects too many people," he continued. "Ticket sellers also need to do more, by improving transparency and ensuring that they are acting in the best interests of consumers and help the market work for everyone.”

The legislation would be similar to the Better Online Ticket Sales (BOTS) Act introduced in the US by President Obama last year, which made it illegal to use software to purchase event tickets.

 

 

Watch Bill Murray's “Happy Street” video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSuB4Su6wCM&feature=youtu.be

A new song has been unveiled featuring Bill Murray on lead vocals. Check out the video for ‘Happy Street’ above.

The track was recorded for the upcoming album of Murray’s long-tme friend and the former ‘Late Night With David Letterman’ musical director Paul Shaffer.


 Paul Shaffer, best known as David Letterman’s sideman and bandleader, has teamed up with Bill Murray for a new song. It’s called “Happy Street.”


‘Happy Street’ is an old-school, feel-good, sing-along that starts with Shaffer approaching Murray to discuss how he’s just “loving the way that I’m walking baby”, before celebrating all the simple wonders of the world and looking on the bright side of life. It comes with an video  animated by Jay Marks that shows the pair and the rest of the world living in perfect harmony.

There are so many facets to Bill Murray as an actor, comedian, and general all-around good guy that sometimes his genuine talent as a singer is overlooked.

Recently, he announced the New Worlds show, where he’ll be performing pieces by Stephen Foster and George Gershwin. Now, Paul Shaffer has given Murray another chance to show off his chops with a new collaboration with “Happy Street”.

Paul Shaffer and The World’s Most Dangerous Band’s self-titled album will be released on March 17.

14.03.2016


In a recently deleted tweet, Hudson Mohawke accused Kanye West and Drake of not paying him for his work. The Scottish DJ threated to release a zip folder with their tracks because he has not been paid yet.... and probably never will.



Just some time ago we talked about Kanye West twitter feud with DeadMau5. Now, Hudson Mohawke has publicly accused him and Drake for not paying for the work he has done for them.

Mohawke added that he will post a zip file containing Kanye West's and Drake's files, except for posting later that he won't due it because he doesn't "have the 10 milly to deal w the consequences” and because he has friends and family who persuaded him not to due it.

Find the undeleted tweets here.

Well, let's see how it goes.

Wireless Festival takes place every year in London and it a one of the most awaited events on the music scene. This year will take place from the 8th to the 10th of July.

This year's line-up has been just announced.... and surprise-surprise: fans are not happy at all with the choice of artists. In particular fans have been complaining because they don't know who Kygo or Yungen are and because they have no idea why the festival is going to be "full of younger artists".

Apparently names like Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix and Dillon Francis are not enough and people seem not to be interested in emergent artists.
