Deadmau5 Blogs His Thoughts on Electronic Music
 
Deadmau5 recently took to tumblr to discuss his views on music.
From the Blogim passionate about music, engineering said music, and especially art… at least i certainly feel that i am. And the last thing i want to do… is take the meanings and feelings of a piece of music and have some fucking dipshit blab about lookin sexy, poppin bottles, “droppin bass”, or ANYTHING club related. which fortunately for the world *rolls eyes* makes up for 99% of the “electronic music” fad that’s apparently considered mainstream now.

Fuck Skrillex! I give this guy props for this, it is so true that a holes like Soony Moore is what gives Electronica a bad name and considered a product of the mainstream

Does this look like a guy who loves Skrillex? (That's Skrillex's number on his shirt... Honestly, it's all probably in jest.)

What a smug, sarcastic bastard.

But, in a sense, I agree with what he's saying. But then again, all music get bastardized in one way or another. People assume that they can push a few buttons and suddenly make art.
But that's not to say that all, or even nearly all collaborations are crap.
And, yeah, it's all a matter of opinion, blah blah blah, but he still definitely has a point.

Haha I know... I was joking. Rusko, though, probably hates both.

I used to like skrillex. But I dove into the genre a bit more and realized that it has so much more to offer then "sik dropz" and monster sounds.

I feel like people here should appreciate his post in much the same way they appreciated Dave Grohls Grammy speech/post.

I'm not in tune with the Electronic scene, but the general assumption that when something becomes mainstream it becomes bad is wrong. From what I've heard, Skrillex considers his music just as much art as any underground DJ does.
