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.
Whatever you do, don't leave your vodka around this guy's laptop... unless you enjoy getting screamed at and called a stupid bitch. In case you missed it, here is footage of Dillon Francis' ridiculous meltdown at this year's Holy Ship! cruise, complete with girls tittering in the background and Josh from Flosstradamus trying to make light of the situation. Yikes!
KNOCK KNOCK WHO'S THERE... IT'S TIESTO! SURPRISE, BITCHES!
DRUM AND BASS AWARDS
The aforementioned Holy Ship! party boat has had many weird guests roaming around it over the last three years, including Tommy Lee, Dita Von Teese and the dude from Korn. This year, Pharrell apparently dropped in via helicopter. What could top that? Oh yeah, a surprise 3AM set from Tiesto. I know everyone was wishing upon a star for that one to happen. Next year maybe we'll get Obama?
The annual Drum and Bass Awards will be taking place this year on March 1st in Birmingham at The Institute. There will be performances from A-list favorites like Andy C, DJ Hype, LTJ Bukem and Loadstar. RinseFM will be broadcasting this, and we highly recommend getting your learn on.

THAT JANE'S ADDICTION GUY IS GETTING REALLY DESPERATE, HUH?
Just when you thought Parry Farrell finally went away, he's popping up with another genius "EDM idea"—a musical in Las Vegas about finding love in Thailand's sex-and-drugs scene. Dude we get it. You were once a really "cool" guy. Don't you wanna die as a legend and not some sad soul that tried to stay relevant? Just... retire.
Just in cassed you missed this, some country folk in Iowa decided to line dance to Martin Garrix's EDM hit, "Animals" because "it makes sense." Avicii started this.
JAMES BLAKE TAKES OVER THE BBC
Last night, Mercury Prize winner and perpetual sad boy James Blake almost broke the airwaves during his two hour takeover of the BBC Radio 1. Everyone can't stop gushing about how brilliant his new track "40455" (note: it sounds exactly like all his other songs) and how hilarious that fake Burial interview was. Aren't you guys sick of talking about James by now? He has moved on to making soundtracks for R. Kelly without R. Kelly, yet we are all still obsessed with him. Next!
