Eric Prydz calls out Seth Troxler over Camelphat abuse
He’s one of dance music’s most outrageously opinionated personalities, but now, Seth Troxler may have crossed the line, having aimed a barrage of abuse at UK duo Camelphat on his social media channels. Thats the view of Swedish maestro Eric Prydz, anyway, who was quick to back up the ‘Panic Room’ producers when a row on Twitter exploded over the whole affair.
After Troxler poked fun at Camelphat’s bio, which (accurately) stated their status as Beatport‘s top selling artists, the techno star took to Instagram to add that “everyone has gone dumb”, aiming a swipe at the Grammy-nominated duo, asking them: “Do you lose sleep knowing your music will be forgotten in less time than drum rolls in your sets?”
With numerous acts, including Gabriel & Dresden showing their support for Camelphat, Eric Prydz – who shared an Ibiza residency with the ‘Paradigm’ pair, addressed Troxler, adding:
“Please. I’m waiting. Use your music and this Twitter platform to show us all what we all have been missing… show me your resent music that will outlive “Cola” or “Constellations”
Prydz then posted a link to ‘Constellations’ on his Twitter, the 2015 Camelphat anthem on Spinnin’ Deep, which showcased the pair’s outrageous talent a full two years before their Elderbrook collaboration propelled them into the mainstream spotlight in 2017.
Hey @sethtroxler I know what you’re on about. The mass ain’t liking what you play. That’s what “underground” is. You need to use your supremacy and your amazingness to learn these kids that @CamelPhat etc are crap and that you (and your mentors) are superior and the answer.
