Deadmau5 and Porter Robinson Clash Over Miami



The sun to rise. It to rain at least once during GlastonburyDeadmau5 to be outspoken on his views on Twitter. People breathing oxygen. Some things in life are just universal truths that we’ve become so accustomed to that we almost take them for granted, thus when it was brought to our attention that Canadian mouse-head wearing producer Deadmau5 would be leaving Twitter it made us start to question anything and everything. 

Yes, it’s true one of the social networks most amusing, cutting and honest characters is signing his Twitter account over to his management team.

Confirmed on his Tumblr the reasoning behind the move was unknown the Mau5 assuring us it had nothing to do with anything he had said or “Lady Gaga’s infinite legions of brain dead fans” but was rather for “reasons of his own.” Well now it appears that the producer is back and guess what? He’s already embroiled in a war of words with a fellow artist. This time it wasn’t an international pop star that was the source of his ire but fellow DJ and producer Porter Robinson. The reasoning for his online scorn? Miami. Electronic music gossip followers may recall Deadmau5 slamming about the increasingly controversial Miami nightspot Mansion (the club which disgracefully kicked both Dennis Ferrer and DJ Shadow off the decks mid-set) after making a stop their for his ‘Unhooked’ North American tour. After what we can only assume was less than a stellar night for Joel at the establishment he told fans on his new live site that “Putting fans in the back and trust fund kids up front is fucking stupid as fuck,” after VIPs texting in the front row raised his blood pressure before pledging that he “won’t be playing any more Miami clubs.” 

Several days later with fast rising production prodigy Porter Robinson due to hit Miami at South Beach institution Story, the 21-year-old tweeted, that the venue was one his favorite-sounding clubs, and he’s enjoyed making visits there over his career thus far.  A fans then tweeted the pair quoting Deadmau5’s recent Miami experience and it didn’t take long for Joel to then respond online with trademark Deadmau5 twitter fare, the Canadian seemingly riled by the youngsters funnier, more measured responses and beginning to lose his temper before Dillon Francis stepped in to suggest the pair settle their differences on a Coffee Run.

On a more musical note (after all that’s what it should be all about)

Deadmau5 then spent the uploading new music to live.deadmau5.com and Porter took to Facebook to inform fans that  “finished an album song today. i’m in the home stretch.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
