Killing It

Diplo gets a taste of his own medicine, Tiesto will marry you, and Laidback Luke survives a near-death experience.

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.

ANNIE MAC'S FLYING FANS
Take a good look at this picture from the stage during Annie Mac's set at Global Gathering. These are real people. It is an undoctored photo. Her fans have taken it to the next level and are now flying during her sets. Top that one ravers (actually please don't).

DON'T WORRY FLO RIDA WE CAN'T BELIEVE IT EITHER
OK, there's a few things to say about this: The first thing is that we need a Pitbull/Flo Rida collaboration like we need a hole in the head. The second is that this made the video for "Bubble Butt" look like an episode of Glee. The third is that Infinity Ink is getting that Now That's What I Call royalty money right now, so good for them. A lot of people can't believe that Pit and Flo are riding the house music train but I don't think they realize that Mr. 305's main producer is MK, so he has to have something approaching good taste somewhere deep down.

EVEN DIPLO CAN'T BELIEVE IT
Because it's not a good single without some Diplo beef. The Major Lazer frontman seems to believe that Flo jacked his style on the new booty-saturated music video. How does it feel to be on the other side for once? RT RT RT.

BECAUSE ELVIS IS FOR OLD PEOPLE
Tiesto will marry you! No, seriously. You can now get married in Vegas by Tiesto. Is there anything this dude can't do? He is the eigth wonder of the world. So many orange people will be fist pumping through their vows in August. Don't forget to invite us.

SIGH OF EDM RELIEF
The news is full of plane crashes, trains derailing and trucks exploding, and it's starting to freak us all out. You could only imagine what these DJs feel like having to get on so many planes, trains and automobiles. This week several headliners manage to survive an emergency landing that looked really scary. We are happy that Laidback Luke, Gina Turner and Martin Solveig are OK. That is way too many all-stars on one fancy private Jet.

DJ ELLIE GOULDING DROP THE BASS?
Hey, everyone's doing it right? Better Ellie than Carly Rae Jepsen. 

SORRY LADIES. ONEMAN'S OFF THE MARKET
I don't know if they have made this very clear through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or party photos but DJ Oneman and lovely latina photographer Ysa Perez are engaged. We wanted to let you know, in case you've been living under a rock. We wish the best to one of the cutest couples ever.

NOT EXACTLY THE RAVE BUT...
Because what DJ doesn't love both Drake and The Weeknd? We feel this news is very important for our Twitter timelines. After a long run of rumors that the two had some sort of beef the Canadian love-making-music-makers cleared that whole thing up with this Instagram photo. Make it happen guys! You are the only two pop stars we ever see jaded DJs excited about. Maybe some DJ babies will be born soon.

RIP ELITE GYMNASTICS
And their girlfriends apparently. The trippy Minnesotan electro duo broke up a while ago, and lead man James Brooks has started a new project called Dead Girlfriends. Really dude? I guess it can't be that bad if Grimes approves. She did design the cover art. 

VOTE FOR JESSIE ANDREWS
Los Angeles is funny because it is the only place where a porn star-turned-DJ like this would be accepted into the local scene. Hey, music journalists! Instead of writing a bunch of boring think pieces on "the state of EDM" just save yourself a ton of work and retweet this. Also, we're totally voting for her.
