    “Grow the fuck up, dude”: Deadmau5 and Carnage apparently had a physical fight backstage at a festival


    Guest

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to put two of dance music’s most incendiary personalities on the same bill last weekend is probably getting their arse kicked right now.

    Canadian superstar Deadmau5 and LA producer Carnage allegedly got involved in a physical altercation backstage at a festival in Calgary over the weekend, with both DJs claiming the other “threatened” and “shoved” them.

    As Deadmau5 alleges, Carnage was waiting backstage to confront him before he walked on stage for his set. “[Carnage’s] set was finished 40 minutes ago, but he chose to hang out there with his little buddies and a camera man because he knew I’d be making my way there at some point,” Deadmau5 wrote in a statement on Reddit.

    “He makes a fucking dash in front of my security dude (stupid idea) to shove his dumb fucking ass in my face to yell ‘OH WHAT’S UP JOEL WHAT’S UP’. Of course I just kept walking, and (my) security dude, Drew, put his arm out to keep that fucking moron out of my face.

    “As I continued up the stairs, I could hear the fray behind me… Carnage made the stupid mistake of pushing a security guy… yeah. Dumb. And then a whole shitload of event security more or less got involved because he was acting like such a fucking baby, screaming threats, being an all around disrespectful piece of shit asshat.

    “I just sat on the stairs of my cube and watched…my only regret was that him or his posse didn’t get knocked the fuck out for pushing those security dudes.”

    Unsurprisingly, Carnage has a very different interpretation of what went down. He responded in a lengthy vid on his Snapchat, alleging that it was Mau5 that started the scuffle.

    “I had just finished my set, he was playing after me,” Carnage said. “I said ‘What’s up Joel? You got anything to say to me?’ Because his tour manager was talking shit to Fresco. And then he tried to shove me — what a scared little bitch.”

    “He called like 80 fucking cops to come take me out. You’re a fucking pussy Deadmau5, I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I didn’t even fucking touch you — you’re a pathetic fucking bitch.”

    “Guess what Joel, Deadmau5 — whatever you fucking call yourself. I’m gonna be here at the next festival, I’ll be at the next festival, I’m not going anywhere.”

    Carnage also claimed to have a video of the incident — which allegedly shows Deadmau5 to be the aggressor — but the video has yet to surface.

      DJ SPEN:
      US house icon DJ Spen first laid his hand on the decks at the age of thirteen while growing up in his native city of Baltimore - he hasn’t looked back since.
      Also known as Sean Spencer, the talented DJ and producer began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a hip-hop radio DJ making beats under the moniker Numarx, responsible for writing and recording 'Girl You Know It’s True,' later covered and made into a smash hit by Milli Vanilli. The years that followed saw DJ Spen move away from hip-hop and towards the classic Chicago house sound that would define his productions for years to come, after joining forces with famed production collective The Basement Boys. Working under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first 12″ through Basement Boys Records in 1995, the energetic gospel house cut ‘A Feeling.’ This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dancefloor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.  In 2004, DJ Spen split from Basement Boys, releasing through Black Vinyl Records and his own label Code Red before founding his second imprint Quantize Recordings, which has since become a regular outlet for his music. Alongside his own productions, DJ Spen has built a reputation as a talented and prolific remix artist, putting his own unique stamp on pop anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything but the Girl, Toni Braxton and more. If that isn’t enough, he’s still spinning eclectic and soulful jams in clubs across the globe, further establishing his status as an eminent figure in house music, both past and present.
       

      DR PACKER:
      Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer Greg Packer, set up for Remixes & Edits of mainly retro music such as 70’s, 80’s, 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae. Greg although known more for ‘Liquid Drum & Bass’ regularly plays sets of ‘Old School Funk, Disco & Hip Hop. Greg purchased his first record in 1982 at the age of 10. That record was ‘Grandmaster Flash – The Message’! Greg grew up in Northampton in the UK, frequently listening to his mother’s disco records (to which he says he had no choice!). In the 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to hear music such as ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’ or ‘And The Beat Goes On’ played in the house, so the disco thing really was his first introduction to music, records became his life and he has collected 25,000+ over the years.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world with the likes of Greg Wilson, Hot Toddy, Fingerman, Joey Negro and Norman Jay regularly featuring his edits in their performances. All of this support helped Dr Packer to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 Nu Disco Artists midway through 2015. At the end of the year Dr Packer came in at #4 in the Top 100 Disco Artists
