ADE gets busy: rock is dead and people aren’t getting enough “fuck you” moments these days. Come on in and see what else is afoot.

- The Amsterdam Dance Event is off and running, and some of the industry’s biggest players have got plenty to say, including Richie Hawtin (who thinks we need a few more “fuck-you moments”) and Beatport’s own CEO Matthew Adell, who declared, “Rock ‘n’ roll is dead.” (full story)

- Ali Love’s got a pretty trippy new video for his track “Another.” Check it!

- As you may recall, 2013 is a banner year for pioneering Belgian techno imprint R&S. To help celebrate, they’ve just announced a new 30-track retrospective compilation due on Monday. (full story)

- Afrojack is apparently consulting on a new DJ/production app for computer maker Razer. (full story)

- The inaugural edition of Sonar Stockholm is set to take place on February 14 and 15. Daphni, Jon Hopkins, and Skudge are just a few of the performers announced so far. (full story)

- Awww… kissy faces abound in Booka Shade’s video for their new low-slung groover “Love Inc.,” a great one to take you into the weekend.
