We’ve got to hand it to Sonny Moore for being such a genuine figure in the scene and inspiring creative thought about whatever he speaks about. His latest thoughts come from an interview with Rolling Stone in which he is asked to address a few topics he is probably way too used to talking about.
One of the biggest issues he gives perspective on from his professional and personal life provides a clear picture of his stance on Deadmau5’s sometimes unnecessary rambling:
“If he was a real friend, he would come to me and be like, ‘Yo, you shouldn’t be working for Justin Bieber,’ rather than blowing it up all over the Internet and going out of his way to make people feel wrong for making a choice in their life. And I would say to him, “I enjoy working with Justin Bieber!” I’m a fan of his voice. And if you’re a producer and you get an opportunity to work with someone who’s the biggest artist in the world, for better or for worse, what would you say? Would you say, ‘no?’”
Whether he actually believes what he’s saying (which we don’t doubt) or he’s only saying what he does for attention, Zimmerman seems to be burning more bridges as time goes on. It’s great that he’s honest, but other successful artists have proven you can be honest and less abrasive about it.
Skrillex also touches on the statement that EDM will “burst” its bubble soon. Read what he has to say below:
“A lot of people who ask about the state of EDM don’t know what they’re asking. Are you asking me how long people are going to make EDM? Like what David Guetta’s making? Avicii? Or are you asking how long people are going to make computer music? Because people won’t stop making music on the computer until computers go away. But as far as a certain culture and aspect of EDM, yeah, I do believe that it will go away, because the ratio of businesspeople is trumping the ratio of actual artistry.”
