For a Dj who’s helped bring EDM culture to the mainstream, it seems Diplo is getting some cold feet about the scene.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Diplo expressed his feelings on the DJ world, believing it’s a “sinking ship”. He goes on to comment that it’s full of the corniest, lame people that headed on a crash course very soon. it’s not the first time that Diplo has made a controversial statement about the EDM scene, commenting on how the EDM bubble is going to pop, but as hypocritical as his statement may be, there might be truth to it.
“The DJ world is the corniest f–ing group of people,” he says, shaking his head. “We’re not celebrities, we’re not famous for any good reason. We’re just … really lame. Besides people like Dillon Francis, who makes fun of the whole thing, or Calvin Harris, it’s a sinking ship. It’s a really lame culture. I’m sad that I’m part of it, but I play the game.”
