Continuing with his PR push, Deadmau5 recently sat down with Fuse to have a candid discussion about his most recent release >album title goes here< discussing how it felt good to get out of his “forced bubble.” In his typical, off the cuff, honest fashion, he comments on the double-edged sword that is the “Rise of EDM,” stating that although it has opened up a lot of doors, he has no plans to “work with whoever I want for maximum exposure.” He goes on to mention that despite his peers making choices that are “interesting” and a “bit of a comedy,” the fact that the opportunity exists is “pretty big” — he’s just not too keen on the results.
When asked about his success he humbly dismisses it: “it’s good to be appreciated” but “sometimes you do have these thoughts like ‘is all this really necessary?’ — I’m not curing fucking cancer.”
As always, no Deadmau5 interview would be complete without a jab – and this time Joel attacks the dubstep producers, not for the culture they foster but for the lack of respect they show towards the art of sound engineering.
“[Dubstep] is a fuck you to every audio engineer in the world.”
