    Default Which EDM Artist Does Richie Hawtin Admire Most?

    Deadmau5...


    Mon 18th Jun, 2012 in International News

    While in Las Vegas for the Electric Daisy Carnival weekender, inthemix attended a panel for Insomniac’s EDM Biz conference that brought a line-up of leading dance artists together: Kaskade, Above & Beyond, Steve Angello, Richie Hawtin and Rebecca & Fiona. We’ll have the full transcript from the panel for you soon. During the section of the panel that took questions from the floor, the conference’s techno guru Hawtin was asked who he admires most in the industry. Earlier he had talked about the early influence of Detroit originals like Blake Baxter and Derrick May, so it seemed likely he’d go for someone of that vintage. Instead, Hawtin gave a nod to Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, who he had been hanging out with recently in Zimmerman’s hometown of Toronto.

    “There are so many answers for that question,” Hawtin replied. “I was in Toronto a couple of weeks ago, and I went over to Deadmau5’s house. He was there setting up his studio, and we hung out and chatted all day. His mum was there. We talked about how he has lived and breathed electronic music for the last 10, 15 years. We were talking about ideas and what he’s trying to do with his show.

    “From an outsider’s perspective, it could look like Joel is manufactured, or something like that. But I really respect what he’s doing, because he’s taking it to another level, a level that I never thought possible when I started. And he’s still kept control and is realising his own artistic vision. We play totally different music, but that’s what I respect about our whole scene: we’ve kept control and we’re on our own paths. That’s what I respect.”

    Deadmau5 came up earlier in the panel as well, with Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant singling the Canadian out as an example to young artists.

    “You look at someone like Deadmau5,” said Grant. “He came about his brand by accident, but he’s fundementally a talented musician. You see kids on the forums saying it’s just hype and bullshit about him, and that kind of annoys me, because there’s a guy who has happened to build a great brand and he’s really talented. With Twitter and Facebook, new artists feel they have to build a following, but actually the core thing they have to focus on is the music.”

    When inthemix interviewed Hawtin back in 2010, he mentioned the strangeness of his Plastikman Live show next to Deadmau5’s Rubik’s Cube. “We’ve had a couple of shows playing before or after Deadmau5,” he said. “People were freaking out over his own LED thing; you know, really high energy. And ours was…a little more cerebral at moments.”

    Yes. I really think so. He seems more concerned these days w/ ancillary business ventures than the music he's playing. FWIW, the music he's playing is mostly pap.

    This may be true.

    But in my opinion, compared to all of the big names in EDM today, Deadmau5 is lightyears ahead of them. If you're a fan of Progressive House then you probably like those productions from Deadmau5. The Dubstep shit he produces is garbage, and I don't like his Electro House stuff as much. But I can see where they're coming from in this article in terms of people saying that he is just a fad. The dude definitely has some talent.

    Seems we're talking past one another. I assumed you were soliciting reactions to Hawtin's Deadmau5 love.

    As far as Deadmau5 ... sure, he's miles better than SHM etc. But that isn't saying much.

    I was doing this too. I found it surprising that Richie's answer to that question was Deadmau5.

    The fact that Hawtin gushes over the production value of Deadmau5's "show", saying nothing in reference to the music, is telling.

    Deadmau5 in an interview that will in the new Rolling Stone:

    Zimmerman slams EDM stars who show up to a live gig and press play. “David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks – like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!’,” he says. “Even Skrillex [a friend of Zimmerman’s] isn’t doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his shit … People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what – but there’s still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I’m not a button-pusher. I’m just pushing a lot more buttons.”

    Seems like he shouldn't be hating when he does the exact same thing, just pushes more buttons.
    **I'm not defending Guetta or Skrillex in any way

    Yeah, he tends to do that. Ftr, I like deadmau5, but fucking loathe that dubstep crap. Point is, different strokes for different folks. The music that an artist produces shouldn't indicate his/her listening preference.

    uhhhh...i'm pretty sure he respects him for more than just the production of his show..

    "I really respect what he’s doing, because he’s taking it to another level, a level that I never thought possible when I started. And he’s still kept control and is realising his own artistic vision. We play totally different music, but that’s what I respect about our whole scene: we’ve kept control and we’re on our own paths.

    Yeah that doesn't sound like he's just referring to his cube production value

    Really? That reads as a whole lot of nothing to me; "kept control" ... "on our own paths" ... bla bla bla. Do you honestly think the first thought that pops into Richie's head when listening to Deadmau5 is ... "next level". Give me a fucking break. This is about brand marketing and theatrics. Has ZERO to do w/ the music.

    And that's fine. No harm in respecting a musician for his professional, as opposed to artistic, accomplishments. But let's call a spade a spade.

    Cara, as long as I'm getting your attention, that's all that matters to me! I never heard of Steve's music but I always see his name on the line up for EDM type events. He must be pretty popular! By the way, what's your drug of choice while going to these EDM events?
