DJs love Twitter. Period.
Thanks to them, the great Twittersphere is constantly awash with a juicy selection of uncensored opinions, magical moments and bizarre snapshots — tasty morsels we dutifully snack on during the week.
We feel a bit smug hoarding them all for ourselves though. So, to save you valuable procrastination time, we’re going to share the wealth by selecting only the very best tweets the past week has coughed up for you, right here.
AVICII VS. DEADMAU5
Granted, it feels a bit cliché to kick things off with a good ol’ spat between Deadmau5 and Avicii but we couldn’t ignore the vitriol they exchanged a few days ago. Handbags at the ready, it was simply too good. Sparked by Avicii calling out Deadmau5 for his attitude to EDM on his Instagram page, shots were fired as the two exchanged a series of colourful tweets with the latter pumping out a few particularly powerful rounds of ammo:
the only difference between me and aviccii is that he just looks like hes high on crack, whereas i actually am.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) July 31, 2015
Surprisingly it seems they’ve since kissed and made up — we’re not totally convinced.
FAMILY AFFAIR AT DEKMANTEL
It seems everything was going down at Dekmantel, Amsterdam, during the weekend; Boiler Room tweeted a delightful photo of techno don, Robert Hood, spinning records with his daughter in front of a frenzied crowd with Ben Klock and Villalobos looking on.
MARTIAL BLISS WITH BEN KLOCK
Whilst one family affair was being reignited, another was being born at the Dekmantel Main Stage. Strident techno and wedding proposals don’t oft go hand in hand but that didn’t stop Dekmantel’s most loved-up couple from making things official to a Ben Klock soundtrack. Talk about stealing someone’s thunder.
(She said yes, in case you were wondering).
SNEAK'S STILL ANGRY
A Twitter wrap up wouldn’t be complete without a word from the big man himself, would it? DJ Sneak doesn’t mind beating his chest and throwing his weight around. So, when you’re next watching Sneak behind the decks just remember he’s finding life really, really tough:
I literary enjoy about 2-3 hours of my job the rest is all this shit travels that makes me green like the Hulk.— Dj Sneak (@DJ_Sneak) July 26, 2015
Also, don’t spell his name wrong:
It's DJ Sneak not Snake get it straight. Fuckin ignorant twats need to learn to read & write.— Dj Sneak (@DJ_Sneak) July 26, 2015
In contrast, it’s nice to see Matthias Tanzmann keeps his cool when things don’t go to plan. Whether he actually got his hands dirty or not here, this tweet reminds us that motorway conundrums happen to the best of us, even when you’re off to play records at Eastern Electrics.
Last but not least, this cracking tweet from loveable Glaswegian, Jackmaster, restored our faith in humanity by reminding us all that many DJs are just normal people. Bravo.
I talk some amount of pish when I'm steamin— JACKMASTER (@jackmaster) July 31, 2015
Have we missed something glaringly obvious?
If so, give us a nudge on Twitter.
