When dance-music-titan Mixmag posted a story last night that supposedly outed many of the worlds top DJs for buying Facebook fans, they legitimized what was originally an ill-researched but rapidly spreading internet meme. The user generated picture points out that it is quite strange for David Guetta, Excision, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Deadmau5, Avicii to be wildly popular in Mexico City and yet according to Mixmag, “at the time of writing, none [of the DJs] have events listed in the area.”
While the stats did seem a little off; fast forward a few hours and Excision has published an open note to his Facebook page in response. We think Excision does a pretty good job of clearing the air, but we’ll let you decide for yourself. Read on for his full response to the image and the Mixmag article.
