After catching their set at Ultra Music Festival I immediately hopped on the Goldfish bandwagon Not only are these guys musical geniuses but their music is just utterly awesome. They recently released a music video for the track “One Million Views”. The video depicts many of the major commercial DJs (Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Skrillex, David Guetta, Steve Aoki) conforming to button pushing and the obsession with getting views and fans, even if they are bought.
Although some of them may as well be playing solitaire on their computers while “DJing” (looking at you Steve Aoki), not all of these DJs are button pushers as Goldfish portray them. That being said, “One Million Views” does raise some interesting points about the motives behind todays electronic music producers and DJs. Check out the video and be sure to comment below and let us know what you think.
UPDATE: deadmau5 shared his thoughts on the video. (And yes before any one says anything, that is really deadmau5, it’s his verified account)
And this is Goldfish’s response to deadmau5’s comment:
“Some people got it right from the start, some didn’t, but it’s cool to know that Joel [Deadmau5] knew what we were expressing. Much respect to him for commenting, a cool surprise for us!”
