"A review of SFX’s finances and its recent disclosures reveals that the company and its founder are under immense financial pressure.

Last week, Beatport, a SFX subsidiary that streams EDM music delayed second quarter accounts payable, citing Sillerman’s tender, only to then backtrack and make payments. Sillerman called the move embarrassing and regrettable and FORBES has confirmed Beatport did make payments this week.

Second quarter earnings, released on Monday, underscore how SFX continues to burn through tens of millions in cash a quarter and simply cannot meet financial targets provided to investors. After raising hundreds of millions of dollars in a 2013 initial public offering and then issuing nearly $300 million in debt in subsequent years, SFX is down to its last dime."

Well as with all millionaire DJs, they have an army of sherpas doing the dirty, time consuming, grunt part of DJ work - scouting tracks that no one else has used. Then of course the DJ, or their sherpas, spends hours per minute producing old tracks to new. So we need excellent pay for DJ sherpas, who are knowledgeable about every dance genre and knowledgeable about producing. Extra sherpa credit for producing tracks from scratch.

That DJ has been a little lackadaisical on their Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/parishilton.

Daft Punk was out at the fence with Camp Threat and The Last Bar on Earth.

Fuck. That is an actual ad commissioned by the company. They have a whole series of other parody ads for their actual product. This will be an interesting IP issue.

I know everyone's ogling over Katy Perry's Segway antics and Susan Sarandon's ode to Timothy Leary... but lost in the commotion is the fact that Paris Hilton didn't make it home this year.

I'm supremely disappointed.
