I know: Deadmau5? David Guetta? Covered here on Potholes? Well yeah, because in case you don’t remember, we kind of really hate Guetta’s music and any chance to douse him in hater-ade is not going to be passed up. So it’s with that in mind that I just had to post what Deadmau5 said about Guetta in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. He also takes a minor dump on Skrillex, which is just fine with me. You can read that particular portion of the interview below and, you know, REJOICE! [via]
Zimmerman slams EDM stars who show up to a live gig and press play. “David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks – like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!’,” he says. “Even Skrillex [a friend of Zimmerman’s] isn’t doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his shit … People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what – but there’s still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I’m not a button-pusher. I’m just pushing a lot more buttons.”
Update: You can now stream Deadmau5’s new EP, The Veldt, in its entirety at Rolling Stone, too.
