Steve Angello on haters: "It's pretty funny stuff"

Image for Steve Angello on haters: "It's pretty funny stuff"

From getting in a fight with Paris Hilton’s bodyguard to his online scuffles with DJ Sneak, Steve Angello has never been one to stifle his opinions. One topic he often returns to is the culture of ‘haters’ online: for example, the fans who tore into him after his performance at Dance Valley last year. Now Angello has taken to his Facebook page to vent some frustrations/offer some life advice. His gripe? Internet lurkers who tell him he’s sold out.

“It’s funny how people can tell what you love or not,” he wrote. “I find it strange since I’m the only one that actually know what I feel or love! Unless it’s some magic internet thing where everyone knows what’s going on in your head…No one is forcing you or holding a gun to your head telling you to go places or do things, it’s up to each and every one of us individually to make a choice based on what’s best for us, if we are controlled based on what other people think we can stop living! You do what’s best for you.”

But hey, it’s not just dance music, says Steve. “Sometimes when I’m bored I read reviews of restaurants, movies or anything else I cross paths with and all comments always end up in a fight about people telling other people that what they actually like is shit…it’s hilarious…take any site that has a ‘comments’ section and give it a 20 minute read. It’s pretty funny stuff!”

Well, inthemix has a ‘comments’ section, so we guess you should have a trawl around here if you’re in need of a laugh.

Good point! These could be his favourite comments.

I guess the problem stems from the fact that he labels his music something which is not. It's fine if he just did his own thing. Angello probably wouldn't have people like DJ Sneak criticise him if he did his own thing but because he considers himself to be doing something that isn't what it really is or the best, people have a right to have a go at him. It's just that the added fame he's getting for misleading the mass saying he DJs 'proper' house music etc. is what the problem really is.

Why do SHM and dirty south keep doing that pitch bend drop at the end of chords? Stop doing that. Cheers.

Steve's DJing attire looks like old pyjamas. Discuss.

Not sure if I am happy with the term pyjamas in the true sense of the word. Aren't they more like progressive pyjamas or trance pyjamas? They are definitely NOT proper old school pyjamas

Steve Angello hating on haters again. Lock the guy in a room with Deadmau5 for a while, they could bitch and moan to their hearts' content.
