Producers clash over accusations of lacking credibility
Diplo clashed with fellow EDM producer Zedd on Twitter last night over an M&Ms advert.
Zedd has teamed up with Aloe Blacc to record a cover of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory song ‘The Candy Man’ as part of M&Ms 75th birthday celebrations. The pair feature in an advert in which their song is played (see below).
Diplo posted a link to this video and accused Zedd of ripping off another producer, Australian artist Flume, and only taking the job for money. Zedd (real name Anton Zaslavski) responded by telling the Major Lazer man to “stop being a jealous little bitch.”
Later on in the evening Deadmau5 got involved in the argument, saying he felt it was ironic for Diplo to accuse others of doing jobs purely for money after he collaborated with Justin Bieber.
