Never one to avoid controversy, Deadmau5 has been preparing for his stand-in Ultra set (following Avicii’s sudden illness) by taking swipes at his fellow artists – particularly the fresh-faced EDM star Martin Garrix.

Obviously having a good time hating on Garrix’s No.1 hit single, Zimmerman hatched a plan to troll Garrix live on stage…
throwing some random bullshit together for the set… holy shit I’m such a dick, this is gunna be awesome.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) March 29, 2014
