JACK U Was Booed Off Stage at Burning Man 2014

Reports are coming in that as Seth Troxler was scheduled to play on the Robot Heart decks on Wednesday night, he refused to play after his entourage was denied access to join him behind the decks. As Robot Heart looked to fulfill the spot with another DJ set, the event’s organizers replaced Seth Troxler with Skrillex and Diplo of JACK U (who also played at Camp Question Mark earlier). A few of the attendees were quoted saying it was a pretty good set until Skrillex decided to bring up Diplo who made the decision of playing DJ Snake and...

Skrillex Comes As Deadmau5 To Show

Skrillex and Deadmau5 are constantly up to something, and are typically eachother’s targets. We’ve witnessed Deadmau5 donning a shirt with Skrillex’s number on it, prank calls back and forth on regular occasion, and now this. Last night in Brooklyn, Skrillex began the show with a modified version of the iconic helmet on, before removing it to continue the show. Attendees where obviously stoked at first, before quickly realizing it was just another gag. It seems the prank-ship between the two is still going strong, and as with...

Electric Zoo Day 3 Cancelled, DJs scramble for venues

The grey skies overhead looked pretty bad – even while I was raging to the Vicetone set at Mainstage East, I kept looking up to check and see if they’d gotten darker. When the first raindrops started to fall, I figured it was temporary. An hour later, it was all over. No more Ezoo. The entire 3rd day, cancelled. The sky had opened up with a hell of a monsoon – people were drenched, water was all the way up to car doors. Electrocution, I thought to myself. I’d really rather not see Netsky get electrocuted during his set...

Deadmau5 Pulls Off Techno Set At Ibiza, Assures We’ll Have It Soon

A few months ago, Deadmau5 streamed a 2 hour long techno set on live.deadmau5.com and confirmed he had a techno alter-ego called Testpilot. Deadmau5 was set to play at Cream’s 20th anniversary celebration in Ibiza with the likes of Paul Van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell and Jordan Suckeley, while Tom Starr, James Dutton, and Deadmau were in the Terrace. This set was unlike anything he’s done before though. “I personally feel like I gave a piece of me to Amnesia tonight, regardless of what big room tunes I didn’t play.” Well…...

Downlink Speaks on MiMOSA – ‘Wish The Guy Could Pull His Life Together’

During a show at Mystic Music Festival in Houston, MiMOSA decided that it’d be a good idea to pour a bottle of grey goose on Downlink’s head after Downlink moved his Ableton rig to set up his own decks. MiMOSA felt threatened by this and stated that he “poured a bottle of grey goose onto @downlinkmusic’s head and fought the security.” Downlink responded very collectively on Facebook after the situation by saying “I am not one to perpetuate drama in any way and many of you are already aware of what happened...
