Everybody knows Disney’s rep for litigiousness and hardball tactics, and now reports are telling us they may be going after Deadmau5 because the guy’s headgear looks like, you guessed it, Mickey Mouse.
Old-school techno met EDM last night (March 12) on the stage at Austin's famous Stubbs BBQ. Deadmau5 and pioneering DJ Richie Hawtin, best known for his work in the mid-'90s under the alias Plastikman, spun some magic at SXSW 2013. To the surprise of many, Deadmau5 wore a baseball cap instead of his famous giant smiling mouse helmet.
He's certainly not the first person to say it, but Deadmau5 really doesn't like Kane West. "I f---ing hate him," the masked DJ said of the superstar rapper, setting himself up for some serious beef. Deadmau5 is, of course, known for his numerous and ongoing verbal tiffs with fellow musicians, and it seems likely West isn't going to let this lashing pass without fighting back.
He's back! EDM superstar Deadmau5 will make his triumphant return to the annual Ultra Music Festival in Miami in 2013. The festival expands to two weekends in 2013, with the newly-engaged knob twiddler set to perform a pair of closing night sets on March 16 and March 23, respectively. So it's double the Deadmau5 pleasure each Saturday.
