These five stories defined EDM over the past seven days.

This week's announcements from artists and event brands were somewhat overshadowed by unsettling scenarios. Between the apparent rape live streamed from Opera Atlanta and Chris Brown's sexual assault allegations, it's been hard to ignore very real problems plaguing the music industry. 

The news hasn't been all bad in the EDM world by any means, however. From the triumphant return of Feed Me with Teeth to Bring Me The Horizon's EDM-infused album, these are the stories that defined electronic dance music over the past week.

4. Chris Brown Arrested on Suspicion of Sexual Assault in Paris

Exclusive residencies for the likes of Skrillex, Kaskade and Cardi B aren't the only things KAOS has going for it. The brand new superclub, which will open in April at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, is also said to have the largest outward-facing LED screen in the city.
