Well look at that. When DAD talks about producers jacking other producers, mans want to talk shit; deadmau5 tweets about it and it’s the talk of the EDM town. I see yall. In any case, deadmau5 isn’t messing about on this one. He’s going right at Wildstylez over Wildstylez’ “Straightforward,” which deadmau5 says lifts his own tune, “Some Chords”:

Listening to the two tracks side-by-side, deadmau5′s case seems to be open and shut:

  Wildstylez, in a weird twist, seems to acknowledge that it wasn’t deadmau5 that the idea sprang from, but this track by Booty Luv:

That might be the first time we’ve ever heard a producer defend themselves by saying they lifted a chord progression from another song. deadmau5 isn’t buying it, though:





We hate that the hardstyle family is only coming out to say that deadmau5 is going after the hardstyle scene, like he cares about that. In any case, we’ll see how this one plays out.

    wildstylez is a loser. he cant even play chords and just downloaded the midi files of “some chords”!!!!

  • SystemsReady

    Holy shit, that really is a near straight copy-and-paste of that synth melody.

    They can’t even use the excuse of “well we must’ve used the same sample packs/software”, given that deadmau5 literally makes his stuff with actual machines.

    wtf? that the hardstyle family is only coming out to say that deadmau5 is after the hardstyle scene?? seriously? he attempted to diss the entire genre when he said he could make a track in an hour… we are defending our music especially considering he failed miserably at making a genre harder to produce than his..

    Deadmau is an idiot.

  • Kent

    lol, if you know music, you can hear booty luv has the same base line as deadmau5′s “some chords” and Wildstylez’s “Straightforward”

    • Jonathan

      K, nice job reading what they posted.. I’m sure you knew booty luv way before this ever happened.

  • bobby222

    That isn’t even a good song, so deadmau5 is wasting time on this guy.

  • mo

    he complety riped the lead at the beginning

  • kingofbongs

    considering deadmau5 has never done anything original, who is he to criticize
