Anyone who has spent any time following their favorite DJs on Twitter know that among the links to new tracks, shout outs to fellow DJs and calls to ‘Insert City Here’ to “Let’s Do This!,” there’s ample bitching and moaning to be had be these privileged stars. A new Twitter feed, @DJsComplaining, collects the best DJ hissy fits into one easy stream, so you can role your eyes at stars like Diplo, Rusko and Erol Alkan. Our favorite so far is Scuba, who apparently has no patience for public transportation or “Eurotrash.”

We’ve lost track of how many times Diplo has appeared on the Coachella stage over the year, first as tour DJ for M.I.A. in 2006, and at least once with his own act, Major Lazer.

Let’s start with the good, a Fat Beats (NY) alumni named Koncept who made this sick song called “Feel So Good.” This song has a addictive kick beat and fun lyrics which should not be surprising if you know any of the Fat Beats crew (I miss that place). Check out the song and video above and look out for the “real girl.”
