Everything you missed form the world of dance music this weekend
MK Might Have Spotted A UFO
Marc Kinchen is a man of many talents. Not only is he a prolific DJ, producer, and remixer, but he can now add accomplished UFO hunter to his ever bulging résumé. The American DJ, who is currently on a UK tour, took to Snapchat to post a video of what appears to be an unidentified flying object moving through the grey autumn sky. Comments on Marc's Facebook page appear to explain the object as a smoke ring, though we're pretty confident this is proof that aliens do exist.
Boiler Room Have Shutdown Their Chatroom
