Deadmau5 Trolls Skrillex
2012-02-13 by andcas | 72 Comments

At the 54th Grammy Awards electronic artist Deadmau5 wore
a black t-shirt that featured his competitors phone number
with "u mad bro?" underneath.

Skrillex seems to have taken the stunt well tweeting, "Haha
@deadmau5 just wore my phone number on his fokin shirt on
tv gotta retire this phone.”

Deadmau5 trolls Skrillex. Really? That's a hell of a news article. The music industries collective
brains exploded at once with this news. It's funny, but just because something INVOLVES a musician
doesn't mean it's news for a Music site. Free Dnor.

I'm really sick of people complaining that news is irrelevant. Why. Do. You. Care. So. Much. It's not like it bothers anyone, and it's not like it's the majority of news to have a few amusing stories such as this. I appreciated hearing about this.

Haven't you heard the rumors that Skrillex was being ghost produced when was signed to the mau5trap label?!

Those rumors aren't close to true. They were "started" because peeps on the internet were saying "OH HIS MUSIC GOT A LOT MORE SLEEK AFTER HIS MY NAME IS SKRILLEX DAYS TO HIS NICE SPRITES EP." like they've never heard of the mau5trap crew mastering his shit.

"Somebody wore something!"

Silly Deviant, by this logic every other news article on here could be summed up as "Somebody Made Something!" :]

I enjoyed the article. Interesting to see the relationship between the two unfold. I thought that Skrillex was on Deadmau5's record label - am I wrong? If so, this seems a bit low of deadmau5. Not that I mind, though.

Deadmau5 is like America's version of European rave, whereas Skrillex plays overly sporatic bullshit dubstep, there is good dubstep, he's just no longer putting any of it out. Cheers on Deadmau5, that's genuinely funny. I think it's good that Skrillex took it well and acknowledged that he was just messin' with him poking fun. Props for that.
