Deadmau5 Speaks Out About Live Performances: "We...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/24/12)
Deadmau5 has published a blog about live performances of electronic dance music titled "We All Push Play." It gives some insight into what EDM performers actually do during live shows, which seems to be a topic of hot debate at times.
From the Blogwe all hit play.

its no secret. when it comes to “live” performance of EDM… that’s about the most it seems you can do anyway. It’s not about performance art, its not about talent either (really its not) In fact, let me do you and the rest of the EDM world button pushers who fuckin hate me for telling you how it is, a favor and let you all know how it is.

I'm not into EDM at all but that was interesting to read. He seems very in touch with the reality of what he does, but still kind of douchey

At least he can admit all of this. When it comes down to it, most of these people are not looking for an experience of great artistry when they go to EDM shows.

Deadmau5 almost always comes off as an ass lol. But it's clear that he has a really deep respect for his genre and I can definitely respect his honesty. Stoked to see him at VELD.

It drives me insane that people like him and Skrillex make soooo much fucking money per show for shit like that.

I'm not into EDM at all, but I really enjoyed his set yesterday. Not because of his music, but because he's right: it's all about the stage show and the atmosphere. Everyone in the tent was going crazy, which made the experience a lot of fun.
