Anjunabeats has issued a short statement regarding the infringement of copyright on the Will.i.am track "Let's Go" featuring Chris Brown.
"Anjunabeats is the record label behind Arty and Mat Zo and owns the master recording rights to their collaboration "Rebound." Mat Zo and Arty have been important members of the Anjunabeats family for a number of years and "Rebound" was one of the label's most popular releases in 2011. As has been widely reported, a large section of "Rebound" was sampled on Will.i.am's track "Let's Go featuring Chris Brown" and this took place without the permission of Anjunabeats or Arty & Mat Zo. Although Arty (but not Mat Zo) was credited in the sleeve notes, this is not the same as obtaining permission. 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. We've remained silent on this issue until now but as a record label it is our obligation to protect our artists' interests and we felt it was necessary to respond to some of the inaccuracies that have been reported following Will.i.am's recent comments to Associated Press."

It could be the right end of the story started in 2009, when Steven Gerrard smashed a bottle of beer over the head of a dj during a brawl in a bar, and now ended with the Liverpool's captain with a new obsession for the dj world.
Some friends of the player said that "Steven is mad on house music and really fancies his chances doing some DJ-ing" and "He's been taking it quite seriously, having a few lessons. He Dj'd at a friend's party recently and went down a storm."
Calvin Harris has the main fault for the Gerrard's fall in love with the decks after a rocking party in Las Vegas during the Steven's 2012 summer holidays.
The first polish (and european) edition of Ultra Music Festival is officially canceled one week before the start "due of partner unable to meet and perform certain vital contractual obligations".
This is the official statement:
"It is with our deepest regrets that UMF must notify our loyal fans that UMF Poland, scheduled for July 13th & 14th in Warsaw, has been cancelled.
The local promoter, SRO Festivals (SRO), and some of its affiliates, confirmed that they would be unable to meet and perform certain vital contractual obligations essential to successfully producing the UMF Poland Event. UMF have since terminated our relationship with SRO as a result of these unforeseen and ill-fated developments. Delivering UMF’s signature production and ultimate fan experience are components upon which UMF is never prepared to compromise.
As the promoter of record, SRO was responsible for administrating all ticket sales for the event. Therefore, the first step for those of you who have already purchased tickets is to immediately seek a refund from your original point of purchase or dispute the transaction directly with your credit card company. If your attempts are unsuccessful after trying both, please click on the link below and complete the order inquiry form. As more details and information are determined we will post them on umfpoland.com and on our official Facebook page.
There are no words to express how disappointed we are at missing this opportunity to bring UMF to Warsaw. However, we are confident that with your continued support, we will be able to build a solid foundation for the successful relaunch of a European UMF in 2013 with a MASSIVE line up and historic concept.
The core integrity of the UMF brand remains the experience and safety of YOU, our fans, the artists, managers, agents and everyone within the EDM community."
