What You Should Know About The Supreme Court’s Wedding Cake Decision (HBO)

On Monday, the Supreme Court sided 7–2 with a Christian baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple in 2012.

Jack Phillips, the cake shop owner, argued that he was protected by two clauses under the Constitution — free speech and free exercise.
Decorating cakes, Phillips said, was a form of art and producing a design for the couple went against his sincere religious beliefs.

But David Mullins and Charlie Craig, the couple who wanted the cake, said Phillips’ refusal violated Colorado’s anti-discriminations laws and filed a complaint against the bakery. The Commission, along with the Colorado Court of Appeals, found that Phillips had violated the state’s anti-discrimination laws. Phillips appealed the decision and petitioned the Supreme Court to take the case on.

In the Court’s decision, the Justices found that while handling the claims against the cake shop, the Commission had shown “hostility” towards the baker’s religious beliefs and in doing so, violated his religious rights under the First Amendment.

The court, however, did not answer the larger question on whether businesses can use religious views to exempt themselves from anti-discrimination laws – a question that is likely to reappear in front of the highest court soon with at least one similar case pending.

It’s a narrow win for Phillips, in what has been one of the closest-watched cases of the term.

Exposure – Sacrifice [A R Records]

First release from Drum and Bass label-boss about to take the scene by storm.

Upcoming Drum and Bass DJ and Producer Exposure is set to explode onto the scene this May with his debut release, Delicate Lives / Sacrifice. The track will be released on his Bristol-based label A R.

A R launched last October with a sell out show at the Coroner’s Court and Lakota as part of Tremor Sound System’s fourth birthday bash. The label spans the entire Drum and Bass and Jungle spectrum and provides a platform for label boss Exposure and a host of other new and fresh talent.

The B-side track, Sacrifice, exhibits Exposure’s love for harder hitting Drum and Bass. The atmosphere’s set from the off with an epic intro sample, followed up by hard-hitting, punchy drums. Snippets of vocals are layered throughout to give a real funk and swing to the rhythm, while the relentless bass and haunting pads keep the vibe up front and moody.

Exposure says: “I’m really excited about this release. Since launching the label last October I’ve been putting in some serious hours in the studio and Delicate Lives / Sacrifice is the first of many tunes to represent what we’re all about. We’re working with some incredibly talented producers and I can’t wait to showcase their work.”

Working with some of the freshest upcoming talent, as well as long established players in the scene, 2016 looks set be an exciting year for A R.

Exposure’s debut release will be available in all good online stores from Mon 1st July 2016.
