Deadmau5

Pauly D's a Hack!!!

Pauly D
's a no-talent poser -- at least according to electronic music legend Deadmau5.

The famed mouse-headed DJ was shooting a music video in LA over the weekend -- when we asked if he thought the "Jersey Shore" star had any real DJ talent. Deadmau5 responded, "No, not really."

DM's Pauly D jab comes in the wake of a little Twitter feud last week -- when Mr. Mau5 publicly bashed Pauly's new music video, saying it looked embarrassingly cheap ... "like it cost about $150 to make."

Pauly said he was flattered that DM even deigned to criticize him -- but now, Deadmau5 says the entire embarrassing Internet standoff could have been avoided ... if Pauly did ONE thing differently ... watch the clip.

All of you are retarded. you think electric music is easy to make " you just put beats together." NO! if you see all the equipment Joel uses you would think "wholy **** this is hard" Pauly is a funny guy and I dont mind him but how can you even compare him to deadmau5. And obvs pauly D is getting what he asked for, he asked what people thought of his song, and joel told him straight up. If anything Pauly should stop being so defensive and get a little advice. But thats my opinion and dont give a **** if you dont like it.

Deadmau5 IS a legend.
90% or more of the things he plays at concerts are his own sounds.
until you go at one of his concerts,PLEASE, DO NOT TALK,you will be MIND****ED by everything around you at any of his gigs.

he's a smart dude, i watch his live streams, i read interviews, im as informed as i can be.

Pauly D used Jersey Shore to get himself famous,but he still sucks as a DJ.
****,give me 5k$ to get same gear as him,and ill make a crowd of 20k+ jump higher than he could.

as for deadmau5

he's been for the past few years in a relationship with a former playmate...

I'm a deadmau5 fan but I still don't believe he should be called a legend, he is still a bit too far from reaching legendary status.
Contrary to what some people believe Deadmau5 rarely plays other peoples songs unless he made a remix of whatever song it is, but that is VERY rare.
All of his sets are made live, he never records them beforehand.
He uses his laptop mostly to control the projections in his concerts and when he wants to record his set list to either do a live stream or to release his concert set online for download.
Oh and another thing he actually spends weeks making new songs unlike Pauly D who just adds random effects to a song and calls it a remix.
Or teams up with another DJ and ask the other person to make a remix and then just add Pauly D's name on the credits even though he didn't do anything.

I laughed when they interviewed Tiesto, cause he's a very nice guy and he doesn't like to bad mouth others, but you knew what he thought by his reaction and hesitation lol

deadmau5 NOT a DJ. His performances are closer to live sets than just pushing buttons. I saw Knife Party last night, and it was more like #2. Sure, they sound great, but DJ's need more effort and need to actually try. If you want to be a DJ, you actually need to try and fork over some money - a LOT of money.

Pauly D, he can mix a track but he should be working in a small bar somewhere, nothing special what so ever to bring to the table, and a horrendous producer, if he even made it. He is clearly someone who feeds off negitive reviews and haters because a bad review is still a review. he is still getting talked about, and with joel by attacking him on twitter he is giving him more exposure, he's never going to go away :/.... poor comment about djing though, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oS5nvKk2zV8 Thats tallent....
