This is your dose of Blisspop Daily News for today, Thursday, August 27, 2015.

1. Jamie xx scored a ballet and it’s coming Stateside. The ballet, Tree of Codes, was inspired by a Jonathan Safran Foer novel. Incidentally, Jonathan Safran Foer was born in DC and went to the same high school that Yung Lotion and I went to, Georgetown Day School.

2. We Are Your Friends is out tomorrow – yay! Here’s a piece we wrote about it earlier this year. And here’s a review of the film by The Guardian. This is my favorite line from The Guardian’s review:

“The finale in which we supposedly reach the solution to this deeply uninteresting aesthetic crisis is so phoney, so facile and so cortex-clobberingly stupid that it will inspire audiences everywhere to reach into the screen, pull the plug on sensitive Zac’s speakers and pour his Pellegrino over his head.”

3. The German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk have a Blu-ray release of their 3D shows (the shows are done with surround sound + 3D imagery in synchronization with the music) in the works. Kraftwerk’s Ralf Hütter also said they are making progress on their ninth album.

4. DJ Snake’s new remix of Calvin Harris’ “How Deep is Your Love” is a flop. At least that how Miguel Tost at Your EDM feels. We’ll let you decide for yourself – skip to 43:30 to hear DJ Snake’s take on Calvin Harris’ hit:
