Deadmau5 trolls Deorro for Twitter rage and homophobic slur

You can’t expect Tomorrowland to launch without a huge bang right? Well, Deorro decided to express his feelings towards the hospitality at Tomorrowland when his manager was denied a food token prior to his set on Friday.

He even hinted at not playing in Tomorrowland because of the situation.


Expressing how you feel is all fine until you pull out the homophobic slurs…



(He soon deleted the tweet)

Of course the iconic twitter presence of Deadmau5 had to appear in such drama.


Either Deorro sobered up, he wanted to save face, or Deadmau5 talked some sense into him. Either way, Deorro apologized explaining that his Twitter rage was a result of a combination of heat and alcohol and that he could carry out his Tomorrowland set. As for replying to Deadmau5, there wasn’t much he could do except playing it off as a joke.

Check out 3LAU feat. Bright Lights – “How You Love Me” (JUSTice Remix)

Check out the song that won our 3LAU remix competition by JUSTice!

JUSTice took a unique approach to remixing the song, giving it a deep house vibe. Unlike other entries, JUSTice’s remix is filled with beautifully smooth lyrics and looping that is multi-layered yet very clear and stylishly timed. The offbeat and hi-hats that come in after the drop fit in well, and are interesting additions. We wouldn’t be surprised if this song makes it up to the top of our deep house chart.

Thirty Six People Reported Taken to Hospital After Avicii Gig in Boston


Thirty six people were hospitalized after attending an Avicii gig at the TD Garden last night, according to local news.

The Boston Globe reported that 50 people were treated on sight for a variety of health problems ranging from dehydration to what appeared to be complications from drugs and alcohol. Some 36 others were in more serious condition and had to be transported to hospital.

Avicii tweeted shortly after the concert, calling it “awful news” and sending his condolences to all involved and their families. Several concert goers were quoted by the Globe describing the heat as oppressive and the atmosphere far too crazy, with some deciding to head home early.

Live Nation, who hosted the event, released a statement, saying: “While this is still a developing situation, based on early reports from the venue it appears the majority of the transports were people outside the venue who were too impaired to be allowed inside the venue and access to the concert.”

Earlier this year, 29 people were reportedly hospitalised at an Avicii gig in Toronto.

Avicii’s Boston show on Wednesday night was the inaugural performance of his Eastern United States/European tour, which is set to wrap up in Spain in September.

Deadmau5: EDM Predictions and His Plans for the Future


Deadmau5 is well known for his outspoken and unabashed comments on the state of the dance music industry. The Canadian superstar reaffirmed his pessimistic stance on EDM to the Evening Standard recently while racing his famous ‘Purrari’ across Europe in the Gumball 3000. Commenting on EDM’s huge popularity and mass commercialization, he anticipates the genre may soon cause its own demise.

“It’s already been going down the last couple of years, for me. Maybe not in the industry. Maybe there’ll be a whole new herd of sheep following that shit, and fucking good luck. Disco had a longer run than EDM has, to be honest about it, and that died in a fucking hurry.

“EDM is way more susceptible because that was in a time when they didn’t have mass social media and all that shit. It’s not gonna be me saying, ‘OK, EDM’s done’, and the whole thing falls apart, but I think it’ll eventually fuck itself so hard.”

Deadmau5 isn’t alone in his predictions. Other big time producers have voiced their concerns about the direction mainstream dance music is taking. In May of last year, Avicii stated that “[EDM] is so big now it is just getting milked. There’s no longevity in what is happening at the moment.” The tides may already be turning for the fate of mainstream EDM. Deadmau5’s solution? Strike out on his own. He’s already two years into planning a massive unprecedented stadium tour set for next year that he promises will be nothing like the atmosphere of popular EDM festivals booming across the US.

“The show is gonna be a whole lot better than all eyes on you in some confined cube. It’s gonna be way more immersive.

We’re producing it like you’d produce a film. I’m really excited about it because it’s a sink-or-swim thing. Even the accountant’s freaking out.”

While the bandwagon of pop EDM acts may halt and the popularity of EDM wanes, it is clear that Deadmau5 intends on going nowhere.
