Brawl Breaks Out In Chicken Shop After Man Tries To Pay With Rizla

It seems that figure was a little optimistic as over the weekend it was confirmed that the company had been sold for 350 million. It is unknown exactly what prompted owner Ricardo Urgell to sell up, but he has stated in a recent interview that he could no longer stomach the owners of Ushuaïa.

Gareth Emery And Ashley Wallbridge 'Expose Corruption' in New Video

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge have released another video from their EDM parody act, CVNT5. The parody act first appeared back in March, with a video that poked fun at manufactured DJs and the use of ghost producers. Now they've turned their satirical eye on DJ Mag's controversial Top 100 DJs Poll. The video promises to expose corruption within the poll, while also taking pot shots at masked DJs and vote buying followers.
