SO… What’s the point of all this?

Good god, people. Whatever happened to a little tact? Keeping an argument behind closed doors? Regardless of how you feel about Rusko or Diplo, or whether you think Swedish House Mafia’s music has anything to do with actual house music or not — you have to admit that these public tiffs via social media make DJs look downright childish. If electronic music’s global scene just devolves into yet another cult of celebrity personality, it’ll be because of junk like this. By all means, DJs, be opinionated and speak truth — but don’t go raining on anyone’s parade in a public forum just because you’ve got personal beef.
