Over the three-day Memorial Day weekend this past May, the inaugural Mysteryland hit US shores taking place in Bethel Woods, New York (the site of 1969′s Woodstock festival). The premier of this massive outdoor festival left a lasting impression on all the artists, DJs, fans, and friends that made it happen. It was a real case of history repeating itself for many of those who were in attendance.

This week, IMS Engage held its second annual industry conference at the W Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA. During the day’s program, Pete Tong hosted a provocative In Conversation session alongside iconoclasts from film and music including Guy Gerber, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Moby, David Lynch, Hans Zimmer, Junkie XL, and Giorgio Moroder.
If you watch today’s earlier video interview with Moby, you’ll know that he lives just a stone’s throw from the revered LA stretch of pavement known as Mulholland Drive, immortalized in the David Lynch film of the same name. To bring it full circle, Moby is set to interview Lynch (himself a producer of music) at this year’s IMS Engage conference in LA. On April 16 at Hollywood’s W Hotel, along with the Moby-Lynch chat, Junkie XL will take the couch with legendary composer Hans Zimmer to discuss all manner of art and commerce.
It was sort of big news when the staunchly New York-based DJ/producer Moby decided to move to Los Angeles a few years back, but he had plenty of reasons for it; that he got sober, and that LA was cheaper, were just a couple.
We’ve all heard of lawsuits taking a long time, but the one that’s been filed against Moby is some 22 years in the making. According to the Hollywood Reporter, New York-based disco and funk label VMG Salsoul is suing Moby for using samples from First Choice’s “Let No Man Put Asunder” on two of his tracks from 1992: “Next Is the E” and “Thousand.”
