Brisbane DJ punches Deadmau5

Image for Brisbane DJ punches Deadmau5

Having made good on the hype of his LED live show with five big dates on the just-wrapped Creamfields festival tour – check the photos – and a trip down to Canberra for Warehouse, it would seem as though Deadmau5 has ended his 2011 Australian tour on a slightly sour note, with the Canadian star involved in some fisticuffs with a DJ in Brisbane.

While there’s not yet been an official explanation of the incident, according to Deadmau5’s twitter feed the rodent-crowned producer was punched in the head by a local DJ at the Creamfields after-party at Birdee Num Num in Brisbane last night after Deadmau5 issued some complaints about the music on offer.

“well the openoing “dj” at the club decided to have a go at me. So fuck him and fuck that club. I left,” Deadmau5 tweeted early in the night. “opening DJ came at me later in the night and decided to punch me in the back of the head.”

While Deadmau5 went on to write that the incident hadn’t impacted on what he described as an ‘absolutely amazing’ Australian tour, the story has quickly done the Twitter rounds with members of the local dance community wondering who the attacking DJ was and his side of the story. While we’re yet to find that information out, a little more light has been shed on the altercation through another Queensland DJ Sampology who is apparently mates with the mystery mau5-hater.

“Just found out a DJ mate of mine punched Deadmouse in the head at the Creamfields afterparty in Briz,” Sampology wrote. “apparently my mate was DJing and DM was harassing him for his tune selection and got up in his space so he dropped him.”

ITM contacted representatives from Birdee Num Num nightclub for a statement on the scuffle however at the time of publishing they have declined to comment.

apparently he was also involved in an altercation at the Adelaide Cream event... one half of Tonight Only tweeted some bad words about Deadmau5 and he took it personally... hunted the guy down in the carpark and they had a verbal stoush, lol... Deadmau5 needs to get over himself

patward said on the 2nd May, 2011

I have no qualms with Deadmau5 but what this article missed is that he tweeted that the music at the after party was "god awful" before any thing about getting punched, maybe the warm up DJ heard saw it? Gets what he deserves on that one I reckon...

the local dj didn't punch him in the back of the head, he punched him in the face... and only after deadmau5 threw the first punch.

Punch to the back of the head was probably punch to the face after being a douche to local dj.

we played the afterparty at Trinity in Canberra. Deadmau5 jumped up behind the decks with us and smashed out some of his tunes. The dude hung around, talked shit, talked tunes and was a genuine nice dude to have crash our set.
Any local DJ should embrace having a big name like that jump up behind the decks with them (i spose if he was being a dick about it then it's a different story).

In a way that Mark Twain quote people are throwing around about bin Laden applies - "I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." Hearing about Deadmau5 getting what's coming is somewhat amusing.

But seriously? We're already in the middle of government crackdowns over alcohol-fueled violence and everyone's saying "oh no it's only a few bad eggs ruining it for everyone else and they're all wankers even without alcohol anyway" but then applaud someone for bitchslapping some sellout Canadian cunt? Deadmau5 trolls the guy and the best response he can come up with is violence? He mad.

DONTSLEEPBASS

DONTSLEEPBASS said on the 2nd May, 2011

its just the internet right..but from what i've heard, the couple of stories about deadmau5 having a go at rusko for smoking a joint backstage, and his general disrespect of other people, he seems like a bit of a prick.

ROFL. Hilarious. He obviously wasn't wearing his stupid mouse helmet, when he got hit in the back of the head. I'm sure he deserved it. If you play assfilter house, your bound to be punched in the back of the head at some stage.

The local dj was really wasted and should have held his temper. Afterparties are not places for cameras - it's for everyone who has worked hard on an event to relax in a safe environment, have a few drinks and dance like an idiot. Sure - verbally tell Joel he is a fucking asshole, but violence is NEVER the answer, and this incident is embarrassing, unprofessional and nobody should be congratulated on punching somebody else.

Mousey has his legion of tween fans. why does he care what everone else thinks of him? He could probably command blowjobs on demand from a group of 17yr old girls with hair the colour of the rainbow. Just get over it, declare your love for your fans and embrace it (like beiber does). If they arnt your fan, dont even take notice of them. You continuely say that your touring schedule is what keeps you from making actual original music, yet you are concerned what some no-name dj has to say about you online? Doesnt playign to thousands of mindless gits inspire you at all? Dont you feel amped after a show to go lay down some beats? Or is that studio of yours only good for social networking and stroking your own ego on ustream? You should be concentrating that energy on proving everyone wrong and making real, original music. I can imagine for every twitter post you make, there could be a new bassline or snare? But instead you continue to make excuses and ride on the wave of sounds you layed down before anyone even knew about you. Go on continue to make excuses. Lets hear it. He started it right?!?! No one disses the mouse. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Money? Underground? Money? underground? Its not a hard choice. Be happy with your commerical success and dont let the door hit you on the way out.

Love
ITM.

PS. twitter is ruining the delicate social fabric of society.

Pretty sure you'll find cuntmouse wasn't playing after him and was just having a go at him because he's got a massive fucking ego and he plays/produces shit house music.

The cast of jersey shore have never done anything to me personally, but the pubic persona they put out there rightfully allows me to develop the opinion that they all massif douche bags. Same applies for the mouse, he's an ungrateful and not very talented knob, if a punch to the back of the head is the worst shit that ever happens to him, then buy yourself a lotto ticket dude.

I don't really think anything deadmau5 could have said should resort in someone punching him, thats pretty juvenile. And to see so many comments saying 'good on him' and 'he deserved it' just goes to show how backwards we are in Australia and full of bogan idiots...
