Skrillex Calls Deadmau5 A Bully: A Look At Music Twitter Feuds

Skrillex Calls Deadmau5 A Bully: A Look At Music Twitter Feuds

Music
We look at three recent memorable twitter feuds between outspoken musicians that just couldn't keep their opinions to themselves. Words: Alex Hurd Sub Editor: Simone Wright   Skrillex Vs Deadmau5 This week it seemed Skrillex wanted to voice his opinions on fellow musician Deadmau5 taking to Twitter to accuse him of bullying and being "The worst label head ever." https://twitter.com/Skrillex/status/660936678098374656 This is just yet another in a string of confrontations that always seem to blow up on Twitter and there's no doubt that there will be many more to come. Skrillex took to Twitter to give his opinions on his label boss Deadmau5 accusing him of having atrocious leadership skills. Deadmau5 was an early supporter of Skrillex, helping him achieve fame in the ea

9 Albums That Came Out 20 Years Ago

1995 was a great year for music, yet album anniversaries aren’t often as celebrated, unless they were complete game changers. Here are some that have blew out the candles of their 20th anniversary this year. Words: Simone Wright, Subeditor: Karolina Zilenaite   1. Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt The band had been playing with different styles and their third album was an experimental success. Tragic Kingdom was a fusion of ska, pop and a selection of riffs. It helped define No Doubt’s sound and included the break up ballad, “Don’t Speak”, and rocker anthem “Just A Girl”. Our favourite tracks: "Sixteen", "Sunday Morning"   2. Me Against The World by 2Pac Me Against The World brought us an insight into the mind of Makaveli. The self-proclaimed thug had done a lot

The Revival Of Grime And Why It Matters

Music
Last year we saw a revival of a genre that has only become a bigger force in 2015 – but what exactly has made it one not to be reckoned with? Words: Simone Wright, Subeditor: Cerys Kenneally   “If you see man driving a German whip, blacked out windows, leaning back/See man driving a German whip, look like a baller, p’s and that,” was one of the most recognised choruses in music last year, courtesy of Meridian Dan. On the same day as German Whip’s release, Skepta and JME debuted their video for the ubiquitous “That’s Not Me”. Both songs were well received nationwide on urban and renowned radio stations, hinting that the MCs hailing from Tottenham were leading a resurgence of grime. Undeniably, grime is something that cannot be tamed. It’s a local genre, which draws influences f

Bring Me The Horizon Tells A Twisted Tale For “True Friends”

Music
Bring Me the Horizon brings a captivating angle in the music video for “True Friends” from their album That’s the Spirit. Words: Karolina Zilenaite, Subeditor: Simone Wright     ★★★★★★★★☆☆ Bring Me the Horizon had already surprised us with a complete 180 degree turn of their sound, when they released their fifth studio album That’s the Spirit in early September. The band premiered their third music video for “True Friends” from their chart-topping album, following previous singles “Drown” and “Throne”, giving us an insight of the new direction that they are heading towards. It’s a stripped down version of their usual sound of screamo and heavy breakdowns, bringing their style to alternative rock, though they still manage to keep their dark theme going, both l
