Their Feud Continues

Deadmau5 and Afrojack continue their feud but this time over soundclound allowing their “new tracks” to do the talking about their what is “good” music argument. This is in addition to a earlier reported post follow link HERE to see that post.

Long story short after Deadmau5 criticized Afrojack about his comment that good music could have a “formula”, Afrojack released a song on soundcloud titled “something_” which is a jab ad Mau5 and his hipster style of naming his songs. When you listen to the tack you can tell it mimics Mau5’s style.

Deadmau5 replied by posting a song that he feel falls into a very typical formula of not only what Afrojack produces but what he feels many other edm producers make as “good music”. Pretty much build up and a drop.

I very much agree with Deadmau5 that many songs today seem to follow a very similar formula, especially Afrojack as many of his tunes sounds almost identical. Does that mean I won’t listen to an Afrojack song that catches my attention? No of course not if I like a song I like a song. But Deadmau5’s observations should be noted.

If you think Deadmau5 does not have a point just check out this mash up by Delani from beatports top 10 songs. Its kind of funny and sad at the same time.
