Deadmau5 VS Rusko

You've probably heard of the newest Twitter squabble between Deadmau5 and Rusko. I'm not here to take sides as I don't like Lack Of.. or O.M.G. I also hate the way Mau5 spouts stupid memes like at 12 year old and Rusko's new changed style that he was pressured into, which doesn't suit him at all.
But enough whinging about the state of things now, instead let's have a gander at the older material that I liked by these new found Rivals

In the Red Corner, Dead "Maple Syrup" Mau5:

An Introduction needs an intro track:

Deadmau5 - Ghosts 'N Stuff (Hard Intro Version) [click to download]

...And follow that up with a bit of Tag Teaming

Deadmau5 - Arguru (EDX's 5un5hine Remix) [click to download]

And then have yourself little treat for afterwards :)

Deadmau5 - The Reward Is More Cheese [click to download]

In the Blue Corner, stepping on all your dubs, Rusko! who has no nickname because I am uncreative!

Rusko launches his Bass ridden assault with a little Tag Teaming of his own!

Rusko - Cockney Thug (Caspa Remix) [click to download]

What's this? a often overlooked A side with a fitting title?

Rusko - Gone 2 Far [click to download]

Samples aplenty in this next one (spot the ones from Analog Worms Attack & Catchphrase)

Rusko - Mr. Chips [click to download]


I think it's just a tad petty, I hate whenever something like this happens because suddenly everyone and their mum becomes a music snob, banging on about how dubstep's terrible, or how prog. house is crap (choice quote "Mau5 does better Dubstep than Rusko" which is wrong AND stupid)
Try not to get caught up in this silly little scuffle dear readers, and drop a comment telling me which tracks you like and all that, the usual :)

Knowing rusko as i do this beef has nothing to do with music and everything to do with manners the little rat or i mean mouse is a rude cunt and how dare he try to say this is rusko riding his coatails deadmua5 gonna get caught in a mouse trap if he keeps it up….Rusko is one of the nicest people in the world if you know him and this would have never happened had the little mouse bitch just been polite and asked him to put the joint out instead of throwing a divaish temper tantrem ….Chop$

well i think we all know who's side the above poster is on.
anyway, i am going to go with the Mau5 on this one, being a house producer myself, and a longtime fan of his.
personally i think its a publicity stunt done by rusko seeing as he just released a album and has a tour coming up, and who better to pick on than (arguably) on of the most hated(and popular) electronic music producer on the scene, the amount of hatred for this dude is more than tiesto.
now i dont know much about dub, because i dont listen to it, maybe if it was say.....40 BPMs faster i would take a gander at it, but seeing as the mau5 said that the dressing rooms were far away from each other, i dont see how there could be a complaint.
so rusko is in the wrong on this IMO.

This isn't what electronic music is about. Let's try to not make this a Dubstep vs. Prog. House beef. Let's all just get along and listen/make great music.

This rings of that rant I posted awhile back... Deadmau5 is a jerk.

Claude Van Foxbat said...

Once again, I'm not trying to start anything. I'm trying to get peeps to listen to the tunes with the whole VS thing as background for the post.
there's some good ones from both sides, and to be honest I really don't care about people's opinions so long as they agree they both are decent in their own ways and don't just fanboy out all over the comments

Champiness said...

To "chop$":
Do you even know anything about what they're arguing over? Rusko was smoking pot after a show; Deadmau5 noticed and called security on him. Then Rusko insulted Deadmau5 on Twitter about it, something he didn't take kindly. Nothing ideological. Just two jerks who are both convinced that the other guy is more of a jerk. Personally, I'm siding with Deadmau5, because at least his inflated ego has some charm to it.

Boba Fettuccini said...

His inflated ego has CHARM? That's just sick.

gymtonic said...

is it just me, or does gone 2 far sounds like it sampled the justice remix of human after all at 0:37 (listen to the remix at 1:28)

or maybe i'm just being crazy...

Claude Van Foxbat said...

@Gym, could be, Rusko's fairly notourious for sampling stuff like that (see the Mr. Oizo ones in Mr. Chips & Get Ya Cock Out)

To be quite honest about all of this, I am a HUGE House Head. Anything four to the floor is my best friend, but I love GOOD dubstep too, the bass is absolutely ridiculous. I'm a DJ and I spin everything from House to Dubstep. And "EarlGrey" to be precise Dubstep runs at the 140's (BPM-wise) and most house runis 128-136 (BPM-wise) so it really doesn't need to be faster it's all about the rhythmic structure...But to be honest Deadmau5 is WAY over-rated, it sounds like every other piece of generic bs music I hear now a days. Rusko used to be a lot better but he is still much better than deadmau5. When it comes down to it I have met both, Mau5 is a dick, Rusko is pretty chill. I think deadmau5 has a big fucking ego, and to throw someone out of backstage for smoking weed, come on. Are you serious? At Camp Bisco? I think smoking weed is the LEAST thing wrong going on there, lol, what a dick! Clearly he knows a lot about his "scene"!

Barroll Roll said...

imo both of them are at fault. Rusko should not have told Deadmau5 to fuck off and he may have been bothering more than just Deadmau5. Deadmau5 on the other hand, fucked up by calling security.

However, this did not stop me from bringing a sign that said 'RUSKO U MAD?' to Deadmau5's show in Boston last night with trollface on it to show mau5 support

Anonymous said...

I was way up front and saw that sign, you also had the mudkipz one right?

It's a stupid argument that seems to have been blown way out of proportion. I don't think anyone other than the two of them know the true details of the situation, so I'm not siding with either of them.

That being said, I like Deadmau5's music a lot and don't like Rusko's very much.

Jenny said...

i love house music and i love dubstep. i love the mau5 and i love rusko. however, i side with the mau5 on this one because tweeting about kicking someone's ass and calling them a cunt is childish and lame. no matter what actually happened. be a man rusko, get out of highschool, deal with the mau5 directly and stop airing your dirty laundry. nobody cares and it makes you look like an idiot.
and i agree joel can be an egotistical jerk, but he's handled this situation quite well. i've actually gained respect for him, and lost a lot for rusko.
now let's all stfu and listen to the music.

Good Post Bud, Imma have to take sides with rusko for now, Jimsy

Amir said...

im gonna have to take ruskos side on this one.....i do enjoy both dubstep and house but to go and rat some one out is just not a producer/dj's job.... where i come from they are called snitches.
Rusko is def one of the coolest/down to earth cats iv met and def deserves an apology from the Mau5

I did enjoy some of deadmau5s music but after this childish stunt, deadmau5 is.....DEAD to me.


Anonymous said...

Alright, let's step back a little and just look at this from an objective perspective......

I personally am a fan of both artists' music, and don't know much about either person. The fact of the matter is that Deadmau5 ratted out, and i repeat: Ratted Out!, Rusko for smoking a joint (not shooting up, or blowing a line, smoking a f***ing joint) at Camp Bisco (a haven for drugtaking). There is nothing more to say: Fuck deadmau5, you don't rat someone out for smoking a joint. he is, and i quote, a "cunt."

Deadmau5 is a pussy, weed is awesome. Everyone at electronic music events are on drugs anyways why is he being a bitch. But this is pointless I enjoy the music of Deadmau5 and Rusko...especially when high ;)

Just gone a bit silly if you ask me, non-sense there both at the top for one reason, great music.
