Deadmau5 Vs David Guetta: ‘He Has Two iPods And A Mixer And Just Plays Tracks’

Written by John Ritchie on June 21, 2012

Deadmau5 will feature on the Cover of Rolling Stone Magazine this week to celebrate the release of his new The Veldt EP. The cover story follows Deadmau5 as he travels by chartered jet from London to festivals in Norway and Sweden, and Deadmau5 didn’t hold back when it came to expressing his opinion about fellow EDM artists.

“David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks – like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!'”, Deadmau5 says.

He also takes the time to clarify just what Skrillex is up to when he performs: “He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his shit… People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what…but there’s still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I’m not a button-pusher. I’m just pushing a lot more buttons.”
