deadmau5 is such a dick

Just because any moron can do what he does doesnt mean every artist just hits play

This generation of mega popular djs and live artists that do fuck all on stage are there for a reason but fuck me they are such a joke

Though he does describe Swedish house mafia to a t

0 |

At least he's honest lol

0 |

he describes a lot to the tee.

0 |

the way he's talking is sort of the way i feel about dj'ing as a whole now.

there is not that much to in the grand scheme of things unless you are really doing something different technical on the decks to others. not many are

0 |

It would be fine if he mentioned names rather than lumping everyone under his umbrella

0 |

He's got a point. Most dj's aren't that spectacular, anyone could do it no probs. unless your a turntablist

0 |

Agree with this. The laptop crew getting on like the machine is just storing music. Its no coincidence that house/techno took a nose dive when they came along.

0 |

my only concern is the best dj'ing talent to come out of northern ireland since fergie, wee ryan, is going down this route.

0 |

He's not talking about djs

Did you read it? He's saying all edm artists have no talent and just press play. Maybe in his area of Swedish house mafia and Paris Hilton it's true but there is music outside of that who have some amazing artists

Just wish he named names as it just stinks of pretentious and arrogant wankery

i love the way he says beatmaching is just counting to 4! seems like he is more concerned with the lights than the music. he is getting payed to play his own shit which would all have been made on a computer so what can you really expect him to do live. if he had of been doing a dj set it would have been a different story.

0 |

That's also true. It's not like you can recreate everything you do in a studio totally live. Maybe some aspects of it, but not everything. And to be fair most of these big name artists more than likely get engineers in to do the work for them, so they will never have the skills to play live. But aye, the guys a pleb alright, and so's everyone else that uses the term EDM

0 |

i know, who the fuck uses EDM? retards. people are essentially paying to see the man himself standing there while everyone listens to a copy of his album. i dont know why anyone with half a brain would want that. a dj set would be more interesting than a perfectly pre organised show.

The new technologies should make things more interesting in a live environment. I think its just a waste of the possibilities of technology to just set up a live set up and press play. Personally I would rather see someone playing on a set of two decks and making it interesting - that takes more talent than the button pushers, who do exist.. let's face facts! On the other hand, new technology creates possibilities for live performance that can make things as cool. The place he most let's himself down is slagging anyone. Who the hell is he to slag anyone ffs. If u went to see his live show twice it'd be the same - he's not tweaking the set to the point where its different every night, like The Chemical Bros or Orbital of old!

Most people are clueless dicks

0 |

think people are paying for the surrounding, loud music and the fact a show been put on with thousands of other people. you not get that in your bedroom.

0 |

pardon my ignorance, the technological side of things has never appealed to me, im a dj set guy, but what would the chemical brothers being doing thats so different to what deadmau5 is doing? other than being a bit more dynamic and maybe thowing in a few overlays/beats/samples are they not playing something pre planned?

0 |

No rigsy, I'm saying that's the type of artist he is describing. The push play and wave your hands artists. They are two opposites of the same crowd but no I'm not saying they are the exact same type of artist, that would be silly

0 |

what are you talking about rigsy? she is extremely talented and has earned her fame and should be respected.

0 |

paris >>>>>>>>> SHM on the evidence we've seen.

can't see the difference at all. both play for the masses

0 |

Artist dj music spinner whatever

Shes obviously something to someone as she is now djing in bigger clubs than a lot of great and popular djs

But yeah she is shite, that much is obvious. But she's a celeb and sadly that's enough for some morons. Djing celebs are probably the shittest and laziest booking anyone could make

0 |

Nah the chemical brothers bring stems of their tunes and sequences of midi, controlling synths and mix it up different every night they play (or at least they used to). I've seen the basement Jaxx playing like that before too. Orbital used to run their set up from a hardware midi time clock on a load of old hardware and they never played the same set twice.

EDM = ?

Aye Electronic Dance Music or what American middle class kids call Dance music or rave

Do they take it from intelligent dance music IDM?

Bloody yanks

0 |

Aye. They are all over dogsonacid.com talking this shite. One of the lads from Blu Mar Ten lost it one day and stuck up a load of posts on facebook and stuff like "its not called EDM - fuck off". Lol

I'm thinking of recording an Accoustic Dance Music album, just to be different like

You On machine much?

Not as much as I'd like but tinkering away. Gonna get it set up on my laptop and take it into work I reckon

Jesus Christ Wizzbitt - ya can fall on that maschine and make a class beat! Get over to Uncle Chills Batcave!

For me though it's time

I never really liked deadmus5's music but as a person I don't think I have much respect for him now, to me it just looks like he's just planned out a lazy live show, there's actually a shit load of live electronic acts out there that do more than deadmus5 does on stage.

0 |

Tell that to deamou5.

'i just roll up with a laptop and a midi controller and “select” tracks n hit a spacebar. ableton syncs the shit up for me… so no beatmatching skill required. “beatmatching” isnt even a fucking skill as far as im concered anyway. so what, you can count to 4. cool. i had that skill down when i was 3, so dont give me that argument please.'

Defo talking about Djing there.

Deadmau5 is retard though. He seems to think that just because he finds it easy everyone else will. Most people aren't that into music let alone have the ability to make it. He could teach someone to press a certain sequence of buttons in a row but the skill in djing is in room reading and tune selection. He wouldn't have a notion about that because he just plays his own songs.

Sure any moron could do it.

If anybody is into celeb-jocks the Pauly D project is on MTV @ 9.30 tonight

0 |

Thankfully I have no clue who/what that is

0 |

He's one of the ones out of Jersey Shore. A DJ apparently as well. Not sure what this show is all about though.

0 |

This whole thing is just a cover up to try and not make Paris Hilton look so bad.

0 |

He plays all your favourite dope beats and looks good doing it

0 |

pauly can actually dj. uses serato i think. loads of rap in between. you be like a smick version of him nik

0 |

was deadmau5 not barred from the internet by his PR company cause he was doin so much slabberin and doot talkin? Must have allowed him back on again.

0 |

lolz tell that to reprazent.

Just because what you do is the height of beige and you think your a fucking rebel saying the emperor wears no clothes, knowing idiots will still pay to llisten to your bland shite.

Your still a dick, in a big fucking mousehead who plays shite music.

Ahhhh....i miss the days when a double beat ruined a dj set ;)

"is he mixing???"

0 |

Can we all just agree that its about the tunes again and be done with this?

lol @ Barry

Sure DJing is shite these days. All about bands and gigs now as electronic music is stripped back primarily to a l
