Hell has no fury like a trance fan scorned. Over in Los Angeles, hometown hero DJ Fei Fei has stirred up a whinge-storm by playing ‘dubstep’ on the A State Of Trance 550 stage at the Beyond Wonderland festival.

The DJ opened the arena (and the live broadcast) with tracks from artists like Borgore, DJ Icey, Nero and Skrillex: not your typical reach-for-the-lasers fare. Certainly her set was a different proposition from the DJs that followed, including Arty, Aly & Fila, Gareth Emery and of course Armin van Buuren. “Are you retarded?” reads on typical post on her Facebook page. “Playing dubshit on ASOT?? WTF?”

Armin himself was a little more diplomatic in the broadcast. “I think it’s an interesting sound,” he said. “It’s definitely very big here in L.A. at the moment. This is dubstep, right? Pretty interesting.”

There was no apology from Fei Fei after stepping off the stage: “I say good music is good music, and I’m going to do whatever the fuck I want to do.”

UPDATE: In an interview with the L.A. Weekly blog this week, Fei Fei said she was surprised by the vehement response. “My set was unexpected, yes, but I didn’t think I was gonna be receiving death threats on my Facebook. That’s harsh.”
