Deadmau5 lashes back at Skrillex comment


We have yet another deadmau5 related spat for you lot to snigger at today; this time Skrillex  enters the mix with his negative comments on the mau5 in a recent interview he did with AMP 92.3. Sonny was asked about his opinion on deadmau5′ constant Twitter antics and his never ending string of trolls, he basically calls out Zimmerman for being in over his head.

“I’ll always have love for Joel because he put me on at an early time, but he’s an asshole. And everyone knows that, and he knows that. And that’s kinda his thing. I mean, the one thing that is unfortunate about it is that he has a record label. And when you have a record label, you gotta be a leader. And he has people that are like signed to him. And I couldn’t imagine being a leader, you know, going out in the public image being such a negative attitude…I don’t take it personally because I’m secure with myself and what I do, I love what I do. But I almost feel bad that that’s his one way of getting attention rather than going into music and curating. I think his attitude’s changed over the last couple years. I think a lot of people are getting tired with his attitude, calling people out on Twitter. I personally have become less connected to his music because his personality is almost overshadowing that, when he is such an incredible artist.”

Joel replied to fellow Twitter users’ comments in typical deadmau5 fashion. Most of the tweets have been taken down (very unlikely of the chap), but we’ve stringed some of them back together for you through a little bit of detective work.

Well at least the rant out wasn’t a one page essay.
