Uh oh. So off to live.deadmau5.com he went... and ended up not being able to master the signature hardstyle kicks:

If you roll in that exercise, plus the other tweets that deadmau5 lobbed at hardstyle favorite Wildstylez and sort of lobbed at the hardstyle scene, you end up with a bunch of angered hardstyle fans.

And maybe that's the problem. Maybe instead of throwing shots at the hardstyle scene, he should've just kept things about his disgust over Wildstylez and not gone in on that sound. DAD's all about producers standing for what they believe in, especially when it comes to their intellectual property and the perceived infringements on it, but maybe going in on the "hardstyle family" was a bit much. Unless, of course, deadmau5 a) DGAFOS or b) meant it when he went at them. Fair play to him if that's the case.
