Way back in January, we got the feeling that the beef between Deadmau5 and Afrojack was wild; it feels like they're itching to go at each other. Back then, Afrojack spoke on Deadmau5's infamous "pressing play" commentary, throwing shots about Deadmau5's Mau5head and set design. The beef didn't escalate past a response from Deadmau5, but based on what's transpired over the last few days, it's far from dead...

On Friday, Deadmau5 posted a link about the EDMBiz conference, in particular calling out Afrojack's comment in particular: "If you make good music, you succeed; if you don’t, you won’t. If you make good music, you succeed; if you don’t, you won’t." His hope was to get across the idea that producers should be making music that matters to them, not "good" music that "sounds like every fuckin other *edm* track out there." We get where he's coming from, but Afrojack wasn't too thrilled about this, and when he saw it earlier today, he went in. We're confused as to why he went from asking about Deadmau5 "bitching on everything" to calling into question the reasoning for quality engineering, but the underlying feeling is that Afrojack doesn't like Deadmau5, and any opportunity to go in on him will be taken. Check out Deadmau5' full message and Afrojack's tweets up above.
