Deadmou5: I Sold Out By Going Dubstep

By Petar Kujundzic/hypetrak.com

It is no secret that deadmau5 is never shying away from expressing his honest opinion when it comes to the music industry. While being critical regarding his peers, the Canadian producer is also not always in full tune with his own actions, as he revealed during a conversation with CBC’s Q radio.

It’s a conduit now for previously mainstream pop acts to use. I’ve only ever made one dubstep track and I will admit I only did it because it was cool at the time… I’m not a fan of dubstep but I figured ‘Okay, well I’m sure I can engineer something that’s palatable or on par with the whole Skrillex thing that everyone is into.

I sold out on that one track - that would be me admitting yes, I absolutely sold out because I did it for the popularity factor… But now a lot of pop acts like she who shall not be named [Madonna] and a whole bunch of other people are going to use the whole dance/rave thing that died in 1992 that somehow got revived as mainstream dance music and they’re going to use that and sell it out and over-saturate it.

Speaking of Madonna, he also criticized the Queen of Pop for seemingly endorsing club drugs:

I’m not stupid, I know what’s going on with this whole thing. I’m wearing this mouse head and I’m watching kids get carried out by paramedics over the front railing and I’m playing. Sometimes I just want to stop the show, it’s not cool and I really don’t like it and it upsets me. So for her to just go with it and have a great time. I just thought, fuck it and give her a blast because it’s fucked up.

Would you agree?

This is Dope, respect to Deadmou5 for keepin’ it real. LOL and it just so happens that “Raise Your Weapon”, the only dubstep song he made is my favorite, out of the only like 4-5 dubstep songs that I actually like. As a matter of fact, I’ve literally been listening to “Raise your Weapon” everyday for like forever, lol and I’m not even into dupstep! But hey, don’t judge, This song is probably The best alarm clock song ever.
