What a day it’s been for followers of Deadmau5‘s notorious Twitter page. After several hours of controversial acronym creations, he began to direct his focus toward posts from several specific producers.
One of them was Norwegian DJ Kygo, who became the brunt of a particularly straightforward criticism. After posting a video of himself playing a piano rendition from his upcoming track “Raging,” set to release in a week, Deadmau5 targeted his talent and potential.
if i had half the playing talent you had, i wouldn't be making fucking EDM. https://t.co/9Tt1S8b2eJ

Watch the video below, and decide for yourself if Kygo’s skill is better suited away from dance music.
