Afrojack Says Deadmau5 Shouldn't Talk About Things He Doesn't Know About
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.09.2013



In an interview with Billboard, Afrojack dismissed Deadmau5's claims that EDM artists pre-program their performances. Here are highlights:

On Deadmau5's claims about EDM: "You're never just pressing play. If you're a guy in a cube with a mask on, you can press play. Deadmau5 also said himself he's not a DJ -- don't talk about stuff you don't know about. I don't know shit about LED walls and giant mouse heads; I can't judge it. But if you put four CD players in front of me or [Sebastian Ingrosso] or even Skrillex, we've been DJ'ing for so long, we can do a lot of things with those CD players."

On why his summer 2013 album may be a double album: "One album would be accessible dance music, crossover tracks, maybe some hip-hop, and one more underground stuff. Pitbull and a lot of other artists are using the opportunity to get new people into dance music. That's what I'm trying to do right now. People are always scared of things crossing over, that it won't be cool anymore, but we don't do it because it's cool. Eighty thousand people in a crowd, and they all love each other because they love dance music-that's why I do this."

On how festivals are different from solo shows: "For a solo gig, the crowd knows your shit. At a festival, a lot of people came to see other artists, so you have to put on a signature set and performance: This is what I do, this is why I'm here. At solo gigs, I'm a DJ -- I'll play two-and-a-half hours, and not just my own music, also my favorite songs by other artists."
