Universal Confirms That Nirvana, Beck, Soundgarden, Slayer, More Masters Were Damaged Or Destroyed In 2008 Fire
Last year, in a massive feature, the New York Times reported on a musical-history loss that had been kept largely secret. In 2008, a fire at the Universal Studios Florida lot raged through and devastated a warehouse where Universal Music Group had been keeping decades' worth of master recordings. Many thousands of those masters — irreplaceable high-quality original recordings of songs, both iconic and forgotten — were reportedly destroyed. Universal kept this quiet for more than a decade, never alerting the artists, who, at least in some cases, were the legal owners of those masters. And now Universal has been forced to admit to some of the damage done in that fire. According to Rolling Stone, Universal has filed documents admitting that master recordings from 19 artists were destroyed or damaged in the fire. This was part of the discovery process in a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of many of the musicians whose music was reportedly lost. The list includes some truly important
Boys Noize – “Girl Crush” (Feat. Rico Nasty)
Are we about due for a blog-house revival? It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, would it? Alexander Ridha, the German DJ and producer who records as Boys Noize, came up in the that whole mid-'00s wave, and he's been working steadily ever since. He's also become a prolific collaborator — working with Frank Ocean on "DHL" and with Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign on "Midnight Hour." Today, Boys Noize has a new single out, a collaboration with the festival-wrecking rap energy-bomb Rico Nasty. The combination makes sense, Rico Nasty's single greatest collaborator is Kenny Beats, a veteran of the EDM universe, and Boys Noize records often have the kind of trashy energy that she can project. But "Girl Crush," the new Boys Noize/Rico collab, isn't really a Rico Nasty song. She doesn't rap in it. Instead, she purrs about a girl she likes over a pulsing electro beat. It's not doing a lot for me right now, but I could imagine it going off late at night in a room where everybody is on cocaine.

NEUFC vs ODS Dream11 Prediction : Odisha Vs NorthEast United Best Dream 11 Team for ISL 2019-20 Match
NEUFC Vs ODS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Odisha look to make one last late surge to propel themselves towards the top 4.At a time when they should have clicked as a unit, Odisha have ended up floundering and crumbling under pressure. The club has gone onto record three defeats in succession, calamitous showings which have seen the gap between themselves and top 4 widen as the days pass by.However, with fourth placed Mumbai City losing their previous fixture, Odisha were given one last glimmer to make it to the top 4. However, they’ll be well aware that need to overhaul their underachieving form immediately and win the remained of their two encounters if they are to keep their bid alive of reserving a spot in the coveted spots. “These are two important games. We have approached this season game by game. If mathematics says it is possible we are going to fight for it. We need to be concentrated. We have been training very well. It is a must-win game. If we win tomorrow, we will approach the…
VNO vs HRA Dream11 Prediction : Venlo Vs Heracles Best Dream 11 Team for Eredivisie 2019-20 Match
VNO Vs HRA Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Relegation zone slumped Venlo make for a dicey proposition for a tottering Heracles outfit. Despite Venlo scrapping their way in a relegation battle at the moment, they’ll be hardly deterred when they come across Heracles today. Despite the 7 spots separating these two sides with Heracles way above Venlo in ninth place, Heracles are languishing at the moment, a plight Venlo will be looking to capitalise on.Whilst Heracles did manage to stall their three match losing spree the last time around with a 2-0 win, they are yet to wrench free of the impasse they find themselves shrouded in. It’s been a howler of a last month for them with shoddy displays seeing them slip lower down the points tally with each passing gameweek, a set of events which will buoy Venlo. And while Venlo are sitting in the last relegation spot, the club has managed to overhaul its underachieving from off late. Still far from doling out ideal result, they have gone four matches without…
Unmukt Chand dismissal vs Brett Lee: Watch KKR’s fast bowler castles DD’s opening batsman with a jaffa
Unmukt Chand dismissal vs Brett Lee: The Daredevils’ opening batsman had no answer whatsoever to the legendary fast bowler.During the first match of the sixth season of the Indian Premier League between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils in Kolkata, Delhi Daredevils opening batsman Unmukt Chand was found wanting against Kolkata Knight Riders fast bowler Brett Lee.After the then KKR captain Gautam Gambhir won the toss and chose to field, the visitors sent in Chand and David Warner to open the batting against the likes of Lee, former South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis and former India pacer Laxmipathy Balaji. Chand, who was facing the first delivery, faced an absolute jaffa from Lee which he had no answer to. Undone by the outright pace, a clueless Chand lost his off-stump as he had to walk back to the pavilion without getting off the mark.Barring captain Mahela Jaywardena scoring 66 (52) with the help of eight fours and a six after coming in to bat at No. 3, no other Daredevils batsman contributed…
