Japanese site AsQme has just delivered another round of video interviews with Deadmau5. He answers directly translated questions from his fanbase across the Pacific, dedicating one video to each. This week, we see Deadmau5 talk about why he hates EDM artists, his Yakuza-employed tattoo artist, and why he avoids playing the summer’s biggest festivals. If you missed the last installment, check here first.
In all honesty, how do you feel about Mickey Mouse?
I thoroughly believe that you and Justice were the ones who set the early EDM scene in motion but why did you decide to perform at a rock festival (Fuji Rock) in Japan? I would like to have an honest answer.
What tattoo are you going to get next? Who does your tattoos?
You often criticise different kinds of artists. I believe that there are fans that respect your honesty and attitude, however, others believe your remarks are just a part of your performance. What are your thoughts on this?
I’ve seen a video of you wearing a shirt with Hatsune Miku on it. What do you think about VOCALOID? Have you considered using it in your production?
