in the past 48 hours i have seen brutally hateful posts ranging from "thank god! one less edm dj! good!" to "fuck him, he's not underground, who cares!". if you are into house music and you share this negative take on the passing of someone who rocked stadiums on a regular basis, maybe it's time for you to re-evaluate your life. house music, techno, 'dance' with all it's sub-genres is supposed to bring people together, end of conversation. of course you're not gonna like the same shit the 16 year olds are into these days, but that dont justify you being a bottom feeder. all these social media posts by djs and producers talking shit about avicii makes me sick. If you are like me (i have never met avicii, did not know him personally) I honesty i did not dig his productions, but i'm not blind to this man's accomplishments (not to mention he charted quite a few gfy releases over the years). whether you like it or not, it's producers like avicii who broaden the fan base of dance music in general. all you cats out there throwing shade at avicii, i have a question for you: wtf have you ever done for dance music? how are you going to be remembered? yeah, stfu and get back in your bedroom at your moms house and livestream yourself playing for absolutely nobody. you aint 'industry', you aint ' house', matter of fact YOU AINT SHIT!
avicii did kinda look like the dude from 'tales from the crypt'... too soon?
