Warner Buys David Guetta's Music Catalogue For $100 Million



David Guetta has sold his music catalogue spanning two decades to Warner Music for over $100 million, reports the Financial Times.

In a deal that also gives Warner the rights to any music that the producer creates in the future, the record label now owns Guetta’s notable tracks such as ‘Titanium’, ‘Memories’ and ‘Sexy Bitch’.

The 53-year old is now one of the youngest musicians to have sold their backlog of music for such an astonishing amount. Stevie Nicks, Neil Young and Bob Dylan are amongst the highest priced catalogue sellers in recent years.

Neil Young sold just half of his 1,180 song catalogue to Hipgnosis for $150 million earlier this year. David Guetta, who has made 50 million record sales worldwide during the span of his career, stated that the deal would help in “working my extensive catalogue and continuing to build my career.”

Swizz Beatz Calls Out Justin Timberlake



During Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's of Verzuz rematch over the weekend, Swizz was ready to settle some business with Justin Timberlake.

Sunday's rematch not only celebrated both megawatt producers' catalogs, but also the last year of Verzuz battles they spawned at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. But when Timbo started pulling songs from JT's discography, Swizz was ready to hit pause.

"Until you can get Justin Timberlake on Verzuz, I don’t really wanna hear those vocals," he said with a laugh after his competitor played Jay-Z's 2013 Grammy-winning song "Holy Grail," which Timberlake is featured on.

Timbo previously teased a Verzuz battle between Timberlake and Usher on ESPN's Jalen & Jacoby earlier this year, which Drake pitched as his dream battle via Instagram DM. "Drake hit me up about it too. He said, 'We gotta make that happen, we gotta make that happen,'" he recalled of their conversation. "Soon to come, soon to come."

"He gotta admit that he love the Black culture and he gotta be on this stage," Swizz continued before formally inviting him to participate in the long-awaited Verzuz battle. "You took from the Black culture, you give to the Black culture! Come to Verzuz and be a part of the Black culture!"

Technics Unveils ‘Entry Level’ Turntable, the SL-100C



Technics is releasing a new ‘entry level’ turntable, the SL-100C.

Its design is inspired by the company’s SL-1500C turntable – a model that is geared towards audiophile hi-fi afficionados.

The SL-100C features a coreless direct drive motor, S-shaped aluminium tonearm, two-layer platter with improved vibration-damping performance, high-rigidity cabinet and high-damping insulator for thorough shut-out of vibrations, Audio-Technica AT-VM95C cartridge, optional and tonearm auto-lift.

To hit Technics' entry-level price point of Ł799 (€899), the SL-100C loses the phono stage of the SL-1500C. It's also fitted with a different cartridge, in this case, Audio-Technica's VM95C, complete with a conical stylus plus aluminium cantilever and coil.

The SL-100C features both a high-rigidity cabinet and a high-damping insulator to help minimise vibrations. Technic’s in-house developments in platter design are carried over with a two-layer structure combining deadened rubber and aluminium.
