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.
NINA NSFW KRAVIZ
Dear readers, this is probably irresponsible (no, this is definitely irresponsible) but somebody sent us this half-clad portrait of Nina Kraviz and we have no freaking idea how or why this isn't all over the techno blogs. Does anybody know what's going on here? Is it photoshopped? Is it even her? Will she be super mad at us for posting this? Either way, we salute you Nina! Air it out, girl. Shout out to Mike Dowson for making this happen.
**UNDERCOVER RAVERS ** Mixmag posted this clip from the news this week. Atlanta news channel _11Alive _decided to go "undercover" to TomorrowWorld and we haven't been able to stop laughing since. Is there a Mickey Mouse school of investigation? We can't believe it's real.
GAGA GOES TO BERGHAIN
Lady Gaga is set to perform at Berlin's techno palace soon and for some reason this is surprising people. We really just want to know what she is going to wear and if pictures will be allowed.
Surprise! Deadmau5 got into another twitter feud about EDM. But this time for some weird reason it was with Numbers label head and UK tastemaker Jackmaster of all people. We aren't gonna bore you with the angry Mau5 details but we just picked out our favorite exchange of the whole ordeal.
AZEALIA BANKS VS. DISCLOSURE
Wait—best idea! Let's get Azealia and Deadmau5 to work together. Why didn't anyone ever think of that? They will get into a legendary Twitter feud that will go on and on until they have both lost their thumbs and that will be the end of that. This week on Banks' Bullshit we have her going after British baby-faced duo Disclosure, and the fact that they were apparently "really rude in an interview" so she "canned their collab." um... ::scratches head::
UNITED WE STAND
Remember that time Flosstradamus sampled Headhunterz and the Internet almost exploded and they were getting death threats from Dutch ravers for months? No? Well you were probably too young—it was almost a year and a half ago. Anyways, Headhunterz recently posted this picture. So I guess it's all good in the hood-rave.
SILK ROAD HITS THE ROAD
It's the end of an era. Everyone's favorite online drug store, Silk Road, is gone. It was only a matter of time though. Also somehow the FBI seized 2.2 million dollars worth of Bitcoins. Can someone please explain to us how this works?
SMALLTOWN PETE EXPLAINS MASH-UPS AND A TIME WHEN DIPLO PLAYED TO 50 PEOPLE
Pete Emes is one half of Smalltown DJs in Calgary, Canada and he isn't new to dance music. As a matter of fact he has been DJing since most of you were watching Dora the Explorer. Yesterday he wrote a cool article in the Huffington Post about how he has seen the rise of EDM and it is short, sweet, and interesting.
