“Dance music sounds like a walk in the park now. Any fucker can do it – and quite frankly, every fucker is doing it. I don’t know anything about Avicii. I don’t wish to know anything about Avicii. It sounds like an artist from the Renaissance period. And I don’t know, is it like that David Guetta nonsense?” declared Noel Gallagher at T in The Park. EDM stars Avicii and Deadmau5 (Noel also introduced himself at T In The Park as “Deadmau5 without the stupid fucking hat”) have responded to these comments recently. Avicii has posted a South Park clip seemingly mocking Gallagher to Instagram, writing in its caption: “Sounds like you’re playing the wrong festival if you’re at the same time dissing its entire audiences music taste you silly sausage!”
Avicii added: “There are still good bands, still making great music that changes peoples lives, – what is really ‘sad’ is hearing a old time musician like yourself confessing so bluntly and openly to not having an open mind to new music by dissing shit you haven’t even heard, I really didn’t think someone whose whole image is being witty would turn all stereotype ‘bitter ol timer rocker’ like that. I wish you nothing but the best and hope you one day will broaden your music taste and keep developing [yourself] as an artist and musician. I would actually love to preview you my album song by song and hear your honest feedback but I dare you to say the same thing afterwards”.
Meanwhile, Deadmau5 responded by calling himself “Noel Gallagher without the stupid accent”.
