Afrojack on EDM DJs: ‘I Have Never Seen Anyone Play a Prerecorded Set’

Deadmau5 set off a firestorm of controversy last year when he suggested in a Rolling Stone interview that many of EDM’s biggest stars, including David Guetta and Skrillex, were guilty of simply pressing a play button when performing at clubs and festivals around the world.

Among those who took offense at the comments was Afrojack, who struck back at Deadmau5 during an interview with Billboard: “You’re never just pressing play,” Afrojack said. “If you’re a guy in a cube with a mask on, you can press play. Deadmau5 also said himself he’s not a DJ — don’t talk about stuff you don’t know about.”

In a recent interview with Toro on New York’s 92.3 NOW (92.3 NOW is a station), Afrojack has again defended the current DJ scene, this time taking on bloggers he believes wouldn’t know a fader from an EQ knob on a mixer.
