Some EDM bros and EDM fans didnt like our post on 3 Reasons Why Tomorrowland 2015 Was A Joke. Thats fine. But that still doesn’t solve the fundamental problem of the EDM festivals still operating like it was 1992.
An ex-Oasis member, Noel Gallagher sparked controversy in the electronic music community a few weeks ago when he called out Avicii, making headlines in the news when saying:
I don’t know anything about Avicii. I don’t wish to know anything about Avicii. It sounds like a fucking artist from the Renaissance period. Is it like that David Guetta nonsense?
The Swedish EDM producer Avicii responded to Gallagher with a defensive Instagram post.
Avicci’s response to Noel Gallagher was:
Sounds like youre playing the wrong festival if youre at the same time dissing its entire audiences music taste you silly sausage! :O.
(PS: Guess what: There are still good bands, still making great music that changes peoples lives, – what is really “sad” is hearing a old time musician like yourself confessing so bluntly and openly to not having an open mind to new music by dissing shit u havnt even heard , I really didnt think someone whose whole image is being witty would turn all stereotype ‘bitter ol timer rocker’ like that lol. I Wish you nothing but the best and hope you one day will broaden your music taste and keep developing urself as an artist and musicians.I would actually love to preview you my album song by song and hear your honest feedback but I dare you to say the same thing afterwards // “Dude in a hat”
Deadmau5 added his 2 cents about the whole EDM feud, Saying he agrees with Noel Gallagher.
Deadmau5 also showed his dismay with a blog post on his Tumblr, About the EDM festivals and DJs still playing Mp3’s on Pioneer CDJ’s, Technology that came out in 1992.
