In a recent interview with, Diplo attempted to yet again confirm that him and Zedd are eye to eye, but his review on Zedd\’s new album True Colors proves otherwise.

36 year old Diplo, also head of the Mad Decent label claims that Zedd has sold himself to the Marketing side of EDM, furthering a career long mistake as Diplo illustrates:

\”I’m actually not enemies with Zedd by any means. I just think that he came from such a cool place, and now he’s been pegged as a money-maker for a major label to do EDM, which to me isn’t even a genre. But they’ve pegged him for that, they’ve marketed him, even the fake relationship with Selena Gomez, all the things to sell records took away from the music. He’s an amazing producer and good songwriter. I just feel like…I was hoping he’d come out of the scene and do something. He had some pop records and I think he was learning how to make great songs through that. So to just kind of like not care and make an album that’s just stereotype…there’s nothing really there for anybody. He’s got a really loud space right now in this culture, there are a lot of people paying attention to him, he can do this awesome music, and to just come out with something so flat and expected and easy for people…When Skrillex and I came out with the Jack Ü album, we came out with the weirdest s–t we could think of. We’re not about to put out the same songs we did over and over again. You only live once, you know what I’m saying?\” (Diplo,

Though Zedd has no official opinion on this matter, it is clear that Diplo believes they are not enemies. Pointing fingers at producers goes nowhere, yet it seems to be a new trend for EDM producers.

This week alone an entire list of producers were accused of ghost producing by Mat Zo. This isn’t the end of the social media beef between producer’s, it’s only the beginning. The hatred aimed at music in genre such as EDM is tolerated, but the pride of peace, love, unity, and respect seems to be fading – especially between producers.
