Killing It

Daft Punk get condoms, Treasure Fingers gets a taint bump, and PLUR goes to the hood. This week's best electronic music gossip.
July 19, 2013, 8:00pm

There's enough gossip going around the world of electronic music that it probably deserves its own TMZ, Gawker, and Perez Hilton. We keep track of the drama, the beef, the LOLs, the dramatic build-ups, and the tragic drops so you don't have to. Now, let's see who killed it this week. 

DAFT PUNK REALLY TAKES IT THERE 
Just when people finally stopped talking about the Daft Punk album we start to see "Get Lucky"-themed condoms floating around the internet. Did they really go there? Or is some enterprising young bootlegger making a buck off somebody's else brand? Durex was quick to deny involvement but did say we should all "continue to make sweet music together and have great sex."

GOLD ALL IN MY RAVE

This past weekend, everyone's favorite Atlanta-based leopard-print sporting rapper

Trinidad James

was seen at the

Fade To Mind

party in Brooklyn. He even posted a blurry video of the smoke-filled event on his Instagram, and it appears that not even all those chains could slow down his dance moves.Don't believe me just watch. Raver raver raver.

PON DE FLOOR NOT THE STAGE PLZ

Did this weird groupie just do a little dance after Jillionaire shooed her away? Wait, is that weird little groupie Amber Rose?

STEVE ANGELLO SAYS DJING WITHOUT HEADPHONES IS "NOT THAT HARD"
Last week, the former Swedish House Mafia dude told Size TV that DJing without headphones is easy. "The only thing you've gotta do as a DJ is to press that button at the same beat as the other track, which is not the hardest thing in the world." Isn't this the guy that was seen playing a mix CD in front of thousands of people while waving his hands in the air and pointing? Kids, before you pay a hundred dollars to see this person "DJ" keep this in mind.

FLOSSTRADAMUS STARTS A NEW HASHTAG
You would think with all of the rave talk in 2013, there would be more PLUR talk going around too. PLUR (which stands for Peace, Love, Unity and Respect) was a common catch phrase in the '90s and Flosstradamus have decided to bring it back… to the hood. We think the "R" might stand for "ratchet" now. Weird.

TIESTO KEEPS IT REAL
Tiesto recently told Rolling Stone that he would never remix a big pop artist, explaining that he has "no connection" with them. Well at least someone in this business has a lick of artistic integrity. It's not like he needs the money anyways.

NO MORE WAITING FOR THE DROP
If you didn't know anything about Daleri before this, here is all you need to know to become a fan. These guys are doing God's work. Hats off to their "Epic Mashleg" mashing together 16 drops from the Beatport 100 that are almost all identical to each other.

CARNAGE EARNS VIP STATUS AT CHIPOTLE
Being in the trap does pay off after all! Congratulations to L.A. DJ/producer Carnage, who is now part of the elite burrito squad over at Chipotle! We don't know why you would be eating at Chipotle all the time when L.A. has bomb-ass Mexican food everywhere but we cannot hate on free swag. At all. Give it up for Carnage!

TREASURE FINGERS TAINT TOO PROUD
This is an instant hit. The perfect summer song. Big thanks to Taint Bump records for letting Treasure Fingers post this truly sick mega-banger for everyone to download for free. Respect!

AVICII'S COUNTRY SINGLE GOES TO #1 WITHIN 2 HOURS 
A few weeks ago we were wondering if Avicii was just trying to troll everyone with his new country-sounding single. This just proves that there is still such a thing as loyal fans. Before we know it Brad Paisley is going to be headlining Ultra. Sold out show!
