Flume set for collaborations with Skrillex and Major Lazer

Australian producer Flume has separate collaboration projects coming up with Skrillex and Major Lazer.

Skrillex hinted to Australian radio station Triple J that the two may be working together but Gary Richards, creator of Holy Ship festival, has confirmed the collaboration.

“Skrillex is what they call an ‘OG.’ He hasn’t missed a year and has since worked with fellow shipmate Boys Noize, as well as just wrapped up a two-track collab with Flume.”

Asked by inthemix whether Major Lazer could team up with Flume, Walshy Fire said: “Yeah man, believe it or not we’re actually leaving Flume’s house right now, we had a nice time there. We just went over to his apartment for a BBQ. He’s an amazing producer, great guy, so, for sure.”

Music individuals open lawsuit against SFX  Entertainment



Three members of the electronic dance music community are allegedly suing the founder of SFX Entertainment, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Paulo Moreno, who previously worked as the manager of promoter Disco Donnie Presents, his brother Gabriel and Lawrence Vavra allege that they advised SFX founder Robert F. X. Sillerman to bring various electronic music festivals and promoters together to form what is now the American media conglomerate.

As well as claiming that he withdrew from an agreement to provide them with company equity, their lawsuit claims that they met Mr Sillerman in January 2012 and were apparently promised that they would gain 2.5 million “founders shares”, stock options, cash and operational control of SFX.

However, SFX, which raised $260 million last year in a public stock offering, has issued a statement strictly denying the claims, stating it will defend the lawsuit.

An SFX spokesman said: “We will have no comment, other than to say we will vigorously defend this baseless lawsuit.”
