    The article is actually the most damning indictment of the current EDM scene that I've read in a major publication. Some highlights:

    Since so much of it is predetermined, I ask, what is he doing onstage? He sure looks busy as hell up there: Twisting knobs and pushing buttons and smiling and dancing. But after watching his show a few times, the only real difference I notice when he twists a button or pushes a knob is that sometimes it gets a little louder or quieter, like he's deploying all of that energy just to change the volume.

    "Yeah, it's mostly volume," he shrugs. "Or the faders, when you're starting to mix into another song, you can hear both in your headphones, you get it to where you want and you pull up the fader."
    "You only got one bra, though," Felix points out.

    "I know, sucks. It landed on the tempo too. Sped the fucking track up. I didn't even notice."
    So yeah, he cares. He knows he shouldn't. Maybe it's the Swedish in him. "People in Sweden are very conscious of what people are saying about you," he says. "That's what it is. I'm much better about it than I used to be. But it's hard to switch a button and make it go away, even though I want to, because it's so stupid."

    There's another reason, too. "I guess I think like deep inside, I know that it's like, it's a different kind of performing, it's not really... You're not performing like a guitar player or a singer is performing, you know what I mean? So it's weird to be in the same type setup as one of those. 'Cause I'm not really doing much, you know, like technically it's not that hard."
    Also a discussion in here about his management changing the Sahara schedule last year so he didn't have to go up against the hologram during Weekend 2.

    For what it's worth, Avicii has stated multiple times very publicly that he considers himself a "producer" and is much more comfortable in the studio, and is kind of a noob to actually DJing live events.

    GQ, my thoughts on the article. I would normally not even care but this article really got to me, how it could even be published with so little truth and misquotations.

    So this interview was made over the course of 4-5 days where a freelance reporter followed me and my crew around on tour up until new years eve. Reporter Jessica Pressler BEGINS by describing my fans as "douchebags" - not as a quote - but as an (her) obvious impression in the introduction to the text. The preamble to that describes people attending to my shows as drug addicts!

    She goes on to describe how I plan my sets only to contradict herself saying I go over my planned time cause I'm having so much fun with my crowd. Anyone reading this article should know it's very subjectively twisted by someone who has a) no experience of this scene or insight to a DJs profession at all and b) has no interest in really understanding it either. How on earth the fact that I complain when an opening DJ plays some of the peak time tracks I usually play somewhere in my set becomes the conclusion that I only touch volume faders is beyond me and even though I could beat mix in my sleep doesn't allude any kind of respect which I find deeply insulting. I would never lay down a pre-programmed set and performed to a pre-mixed CD, I would never cheat my fans like that. Period. For the record, the only planning I do is check transitions so that I don't have to pre-program anything and still make sure I bring it to my fans. A lot of work and thinking goes into my DJing. I want the entire night to progress seamlessly and when I have to adapt the energy on the fly for the crowd on any given night, I can do so with harmonic mixes that I've practiced over and over again. I am far from the only DJ that does this and it's something I take pride in being able to do. Truth is that at bigger festivals or solo shows I know what people want to hear and my set is a compromise between what I want to play for them and what people come and expect to hear me play for them. At a smaller club show I can wing it completely.

    Some people are known for certain things, some DJs like A-trak, Steve Angello and Laidback Luke are excellent technical DJs, something I will never be, and have a whole different approach to their performances.

    I mean everything even down to the tracks I play she got wrong in this article. I wouldn't adress this and bring more attention to it if I really didn't feel that this article was truly unfair and incorrect. She draws up this disgusting picture of the electronic music crowd being constantly high, ugly, uneducated, dumb and "douchy", while I feel they are caring, loving, positive and the complete opposite of what she says. Sure people do drugs and party but that is nothing exclusive to this music genre. It looks like the journalist wanted the GQ readers to buy into that stigma.

    We agreed to let GQ into our camp to actually portray a serious side of this music to the masses who might not now and might not understand. We hoped they could unveil and communicate the reason for there being so much love within, and how such a great community has risen organically for, this music genre. The problem was that a journalist that knows nothing of electronic music was sent to be on the road with me for a couple of days and then tried piecing together what it's all about. She failed miserably

    Tim's beef with Funkagenda started at Coachella, after Tim's managers had his set time changed so Tim wouldn't be competing with the holograms of Snoop Dogg and Tupac.
    In douchey oontz oontz's defense, that quote reflects a pretty terrible job at fact checking and/or editing. Unless my conspiracy theory that Snoop died in 1995 is true??

    I don't care for Aviici's music whatsoever, in fact I think he is pretty terrible. However, if what he said is correct, then that journalist needs to be fired.

    He says that he doesn't like how she characterized things and disagrees with her conclusions, but he doesn't make any accusations that she made up stuff or fabricated quotes. A lot of the things that he refutes ("I would never lay down a pre-programmed set and performed to a pre-mixed CD") are not the actual claims that she made.

    He is also quoted (and made no attempt to refute) that Ash basically worked with him to make mindless music that appeals to mindless fans.
