After a very public debate with Afrojack about dance music’s lack of creativity, Deadmau5 took to his studio to troll EDM’s current influx of uninspired drivel with his own banal take on festival music, debuting the appropriately titled “Drop Da Bomb” on his Soundcloud yesterday.

The most unsettling truth exposed from this whole debate? The fact that if Joel had finished and released this track, it would quickly find its place a top the Beatport charts.
