Deadmau5 is at the centre of a twitter storm once again. Only a few months after taking on Madonna last week he cheekily called his fellow DJs, Guetta and Skrillex "button pushers" and has now just had this rant about 'live' dance music shows.
It seems to have slightly annoyed rave veteran A Guy Called Gerald somewhat. Writing on his blog, he's called the mau5 a "greedy rat head fuck."
Gerald says: "I know who you are. You are some record company or failed journalist asshole left over from the last century who is jealous of the way electronic music is working in this brave fast new century. The only button you and people like you are interested in pushing is a nuke for the Palestinians."
He continues: "You come into our system that we have nurtured for the last 25 years, trick hardworking people into giving you their money, con honest promoters, take large sums of money out of the system and then spit back into our faces that YOU are tricking everyone.
"I agree there are loads of people like you who do fake it. It is easy with the software you are using. Don’t worry we are going to find ways of stopping you. You greedy rat head fuck."
Deadmau5 responded via Mixmag's Twitter: "Sure, and *I* say stupid things? I'm not even going to dissect a single line in that bullshit. Not even."
C'mon guys, this is dance music. It's meant to be fun. Let's leave nuclear war out of it.
