I really don’t want to draw this one out. But how in the world did Ookay produce a remix of Avicii’s “You Make Me” with Diplo that sounds exactly like the one that is now just being credited to Diplo? I’m really curious what kind of behind the scenes scrambling is going on right now. We’re absolutely sure there will be a logical excuse for this one.  There’s always a logical excuse, and it probably lays square on Avicii‘s management flubbing the credit. Ookay isn’t happy, and we wouldn’t be, either. We’re hoping this gets rectified, and we’ll keep you posted on it when we get word.

      EDM is a concept of dubstep, neurostep and techno, and Avicii is Country pop

    I heard Diplo takes credit for making the sandwiches he eats but doesn’t even make them

  • Suxxxxxxxxxx

    regardless, the fucking song is terrible? Jesus..

  • canttellu

    it’s a known fact in the industry (of which I am a part of) that 99% of the work that diplo does as a producer is written by ghostwriters

      “There’s always a logical excuse, and it probably lays square on Avicii‘s management flubbing the credit.” is definitely in the post, no?

    There has been videos and posts by Ookay saying he was working with Diplo on the track. It’s on Instagram isn’t it? So, probably just a small error, no non-disclosures violated.
    OR, it’s possible they knew simply that Diplo’s name on the title will sell, but hopefully Ookay still gets paid handsomely.

    what did Ookay say about it?

      He wasn’t aware of not being credited until we alerted him. He’s apparently looking into it, speaking with Diplo. He’s not spoken on it since yesterday.

    Learn how the shit works and make “GOOD” quality music first, and then later on you get credit!

    This genre should be called “suckyballs dipped in shit”
