Dean Blunt to show New Paintings at Hackney gallery
Jul 29, 2014 5:40am | Fact Magazine
The ever-unpredictable artist announces an exhibition of his visual art.
Dean Blunt’s ‘New Paintings’ are to be shown from October 2 to December 2 at Hackney gallery [space], where he held his ‘Brixton 28s’ exhibition last year.
As Dummy reports (and as we’ve come to expect from the former Hype Williams musician), there’s not much more information to go on, but the poster pairs a couple of simple black and white symbols the crossed fingers of the National Lottery logo and the clasped hands representing the Commission for Racial Equality which allude to the concept behind the work.
Elsewhere in the world of Dean Blunt, he’ll be doing a “reading” of his forthcoming Rough Trade album project Black Metal at Bristol’s Off The Page festival in September.
Catch up with Blunt’s Skin Fade mixtape from the start of the year and read Chal Ravens’ interview with the elliptical soloist.

EDM label Ultra sues Youtube star for millions, while one of their biggest acts leaps to her defence
Jul 29, 2014 5:02am | Fact Magazine
Ultra Records is suing a make-up vlogger for alleged copyright infringement.
DJ and producer Kaskade has come out in support of a YouTube celebrity being sued by his label, calling copyright law “a dinosaur”. While the EDM star might be a little out of FACT’s ballpark musically, the story is a pretty interesting example of how labels and artists are dealing with copyright claims in the digital age.
Ultra Records, which also represents the likes of deadmau5 and Calvin Harris, says Michelle Phan has used about 50 of its songs without permission in her YouTube make-up tutorials and on her own website.
The label and its associated publisher claim Phan makes money from advertising attached to her YouTube channel and website, adding that “the full extent of Phan’s infringement has not yet been determined”. They’re asking for $150,000 for each proven copyright infringement.
But despite the fact the lawsuit revolves largely around Kaskade’s music (with 13 of the 45 songs listed in the suit being his own work), the producer has come out in support of Phan, writing on Twitter: “Copyright law is a dinosaur, ill-suited for the landscape of today’s media.”
He added: “Summary: Im not suing @MichellePhan + @ultrarecords isnt my lapdog. I cant do much about the lawsuit except voice support for her.”

Inside my Record Bag: Bill Brewster
Jul 29, 2014 4:20am | Fact Magazine
For FACT TV’s latest Inside My Record Bag, we caught up with Bill Brewster.
Writer, DJ and historian, Brewster is best known for his roles launching DJ History and co-writing Last Night a DJ Saved My Life with Frank Broughton. That’s far from the full story with Brewster: one of music’s most eloquent and infectious speakers, he’s appeared on several records himself, and recently has been helming the After Dark series of compilations for Late Nite Tales.
We pinned down Brewster on a recent trip to Phonica, where he went through a box of 7″s – the “crack cocaine” of record collecting, in his words – containing Hall and Oates covers, Serge Gainsbourg (“you would, wouldn’t you?”) and more.
Brewster’s latest After Dark compilation is out now.

More green screen frolics from the Just Jam squad.

Pussy Riot members sue Russian government for human rights violations
Jul 29, 2014 3:39am | Fact Magazine
Two formerly imprisoned members of the art-punk collective take the Kremlin to court.
Pussy Riot’s Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are suing the Russian government over their imprisonment for a protest at a Moscow cathedral in 2012.
The activists argue that the prosecution of their “punk prayer” action, which led to them serving almost two years in prison and pre-trial confinement, violated their human rights. They are demanding 120,000 (£71,000) each in compensation, plus 10,000 in court fees.
The European court of human rights has previously questioned the Russian government on the case, suggesting that the harsh schedule of trial hearings and the glass cage in which the defendants were kept could be considered inhumane treatment.
Pavel Chikov, head of the human rights legal group Agora, which is representing the women, said: “They didn’t get fair trial here in Russia so they want to get it finally in the European court of human rights.”
He continued: “Plus they want this case to set a precedent that Russians can speak publicly on sensitive political issues, even if this speech is not supported by majority. This is a case about freedom of expression and fair trial first of all.”
Chikov added that he expects the activists to win the suit, after which they will attempt to overturn their criminal conviction in the Russian courts.<...
Airhead announces new two-tracker for Hemlock, October / Macondo
Jul 29, 2014 3:35am | Fact Magazine
Airhead continues a strong 2014 with a new two-tracker on Hemlock.
Released on September 1, ‘October’ / ‘Macondo’ might be the closest thing that Airhead’s made to a full-on pair of bangers yet (or, as the press release states, “he’s writing big ones now”).
The A-side features the sort of synth squeals and wonked-out sampling that we’re used with Airhead, but rides big 808 subs on the 1, while squint and the B could be a Crazy Cousinz track with a filter accidentally left on.
Speaking of Hemlock, label boss Untold yesterday announced a new album/mixtape, Echo in the Valley.
