All thanks to Instagram, Reddit user u/yarbed was made aware of the fact that Odesza originally started making magical music in his house. Odesza had posted a photograph of their previous residence on Instagram when visiting their hometown of Bellingham, Washington. Odesza was unaware at the time that a fan of theirs lived inside the home. U/yarbed posted the fun fact for others to enjoy on Reddit’s /r/EDM.
Odesza is a Grammy-nominated duo comprised of two extremely talented individuals, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. The pair still calls the gorgeous Pacific Northwest home after getting their start there back in 2012.

Black Eyed Peas Accused of Plagiarizing in Recent Single
There’s a fine line between taking inspiration and straight ripping off. R&S Records has accused Black Eyed Peas of crossing that line.
Black Eyed Peas released a two-part single back in late August called ‘Constant’. It’s catchy and transforms from slow R&B to dance about halfway through. And it’s the dance part that is now under scrutiny.
Around 2:41 of ‘Constant’ it starts to sound remarkably similar to Lone’s hit song ‘Airglow Fires’ which was released through R&S in 2013. Today, R&S tweeted about this similarity. “Sound familiar?” they said, then followed up by calling the Black Eyed Peas “total rip off merchants”, which is honestly a great insult.
🤔 🤔 total rip off merchants
— R&S Records (@randsrecords) October 2, 2018
If you take a listen, the similarity is undeniable. But can you blame them? ‘Airglow Fires’ was incredibly successful. So much so that it earned itself a “How To” video on YouTube. Perhaps they were just following the tutorial given to them, and liked the way it sounded.
There is currently no response from Black Eyed Peas about the accusation.
Take a listen below and hear for yourself the similarities.

Shaky Beats Festival 2019 drops diverse house lineup featuring FISHER, Lane 8, SNBRN, and more!
Shaky Beats Festival turns four in 2019. The event is set to take place on May 10th-11th in Atlanta at Central Park, its second year in a row at the new venue. The festival initially took place at historic Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta where the 1996 Summer Olympics were organized.
This year, Shaky Beats Festival will downsize from three days to two. There has been no comment by the organizers of the festival on why this is. However, that did not stop them from producing a stunning lineup for fans to enjoy.
The full lineup includes big acts such as Martin Garrix, Rüfüs Du Sol, Big Gigantic, Party Favor, FISHER and more.
The lineup also seems to have a significant number of house acts, the apparent genre of choice. Small artists that had significant breakthroughs in 2018 are also a common theme with this lineup – for instance, Ekali, WHIPPED CREAM, ducky, Gryffin, and more.
Previous Shaky Beats acts have been Kygo, Zedd, Major Lazer, ODESZA, Louis The Child and ZHU among others.
Tickets for the fourth installment of Shaky Beats Festival will go on sale January 10th at 10:00 AM EST. There will be layaway options available at purchase for $43. Early bird tickets all sold out, but Tier 1 tickets can be purchased here.

2017 was Lost Lands’ inaugural year, and it goes without saying that it blew expectations out of the water. The festival, which is the brainchild of the bass icon Excision, returned in 2018. Lost Lands was hyped as one of the years biggest events, and it goes without saying that it more than delivered. From Everything to the production, the lineup, and even its special guests’, Lost Lands looks like it was a blast. Nearly 40,000 people attended the event, and with such a volume, things don’t always go as planned.
With rumours floating around social media, it was speculated that 9 people passed away at the event. While these numbers have not been confirmed, it has been confirmed that two male attendees did pass away. Among other things there were six arrests, ranging from drug use, to nudity, and everything in between. It also was reported that there was “traffic congestion which trapped school buses” and that
“…kids on [the] school bus witnessed sex acts and full nudity on the way home from school.”.
September 18, 2018 saw the Licking Township Trustees convene at the Township Fire Station. Throughout this meeting, Steve and Laura Trickle, who own the land that Lost Lands was hosted on were berated by residents of the local community. The meeting was attended by over 30 people, both against, and for the beloved festival. Township Trustee John Holman reported that the festival was so loud that the security alarm on his home activated “22 times one day and 11 times another day”.
This wasn’t the only thing that Holman went on to complain about, he had quite a bit to say. One catchline worthy quote was his agony over:
“The nudity, the defecation, the fornication, the urination.”
It should be stated that according to the Newark Advocate:
“Officials from Lakewood Local Schools said Tuesday that no one had reported any of their school children being subject to witnessing sex acts or nudity.”
Some Good News
On the contrary, there were multiple people who defended the weekend-long music festival. Licking Trails resident Kim Ross stated that:
“Our community gets so much revenue from this, We’re fine with the concerts, when we like the music. We should have consideration for all the people who benefit from this.”
Suzy Peters, another resident said:
“My windows didn’t shake. My 2-year-old slept through the night. [My]… son’s a firefighter and worked three days, and made enough to make his medical school payment. That was huge. He was one of thousands that was paid very, very well.”
All in all, it should be noted that the township does have a noise ordinance and it covers the hours of midnight to 6 a.m. in residential areas only. The music stages happened to be on a part of the Trickles’ land zoned for Commercial Interstate, this makes it not subject to the ordinance.
It is never a good day when we a lose a fellow lover of dance music, much less at an event. As of now, it does not seem that Lost Lands is at risk of not returning in 2019. Excision recently took to his social media to share a heartfelt statement regarding Lost Lands, you can read that here. Stay tuned to his social media accounts for more news.
