This is what happened today in dance music.

  1. WikiHow released a how-to guide on picking up women in nightclubs and every misogynist piece of trash on the internet threw their hands up in exultation (via THUMP).
  2. UK electronic act Disclosure officially announced their upcoming LP, Caracal, will in fact feature a single with Sam Smith. The track will be called “Omen.” Prepare for that song to be playing on the radio for at least 2 years before moving on to the soundsystem at your local Trader Joes (via Pitchfork).
  3. A new remix of Jamie XX’s “Loud Places” has surfaced on the after premiering in Axel Boman’s Beats in Space mix from last month. John Talabot, the remixer in question, is still a hidden treasure that requires you to hire Nicolas Cage if you ever want to find him (via Stereogum).
  4. Spandau Ballet’s classic track “True” is now being utilized as a bait-and-switch during EDM sets as a way of faking out crowds after a drop. All we need now is someone to make a tropical house remix of the track and it’ll come full circle (via Billboard).
  5. Last night, Boys Noize decided to throw an illegal rave in the streets of Berlin. ‘Nuff said (via Mixmag).
