Deadmau5 has been copping a lot of flack from other artists for his recent stab at DJ culture, none more vehemently than Mr. C (naturally). Could it be that the mouse has severe trouble keeping his opinions to himself, or is it all part of a plan to drum up PR hype, as Sydney DJ Goodwill recently alleged?
Either way, the backlash keeps on rolling in, with the most recent counter-attack coming from acid-house pioneer A Guy Called Gerald, who has posted these venom-laced words on his website, lovingly titled 'Message To Rat Head':
"I know who you are. You are some record company or failed journalist asshole left over from the last century who is jealous of the way electronic music is working in this brave fast new century. The only button you and people like you are interested in pushing is a nuke for the Palestinians. You come into our system that we have nurtured for the last 25 years, trick hardworking people into giving you their money, con honest promoters, take large sums of money out of the system and then spit back into our faces that YOU are tricking everyone. I agree there are loads of people like you who do fake it. It is easy with the software you are using. Don’t worry we are going to find ways of stopping you. You greedy rat head fuck."
Ouch. Is it just us, or is there A LOT of hate circulating through the industry at the moment? Wasn't electronic music borne out of love, happiness and coming together for the music? Presently it feels like eveyone is coming down...hard.
