EDM beef is the new hip-hop beef. Rolling Stone:
Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso is stepping up to defend David Guetta, after Deadmau5 called the French DJ-producer and other fellow EDM superstars “button-pushers.”
“That’s interesting that [Deadmau5] said that, because that’s exactly what he does – but we don’t,” Ingrosso told Rolling Stone last night in New York, where the DJ played a set at a party for Samsung’s Galaxy S III phone. “We’ve have four CD players, six hands, so we’re going in and out all the time, otherwise we would be bored and take our fuckin’ lives. I have never seen behind Deadmau5’s booth, so I can’t really say anything about it. He’s a great guy and awesome producer. But, buddy, if you want to start talking about people pressing buttons – just pushing ‘play’ – then that would be another thing.”...
“I kind of analyze music a lot, and I think that what the Beatles have done is what we do today. [It] doesn’t matter that we do dance music.”
