Deadmau5 takes on Arcade Fire's Win Butler over Coachella Comments

During their set for the first weekend of Coachella, Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler made an onstage comment that may have rankled a little with some of the other artists on the bill (Martin Garrix, Zedd and Gareth Emery to name a few) which seemed to knock electronic music. Addressing the crowd the Canadian frontman said; "Shout out to all the bands still playing actual instruments at this festival." While none of the EDM acts at the festival said much about Butler's comment, his fellow Canadian, Deadmau5, certainly did this week, taking Butler and his band to task on Twitter:

I expect to listen to some decent music, 'n' see cool robots. No problem. If I wanna watch real artists perform, I'd pick the opera before wasting a fucking minute of my life with Arcade Fire. #doyouevenscorebro? "But seriously, I'm just sayin' . . . you should get out to the opera if you ever get a chance, the orchestra pit is a cesspool of pure skill." Finally he signed off for the day with the following tweet:

Oddly enough the album that has garnered Arcade Fire so much attention this past year, and their best sales ever , 'Reflektor' was produced by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, a man with a serious EDM pedigree...
