Deadmau5 slams Steve Aoki for his ‘Ghost In The Shell’ remix
‘I’m not sure how you get from ‘gettin paid a million bucks’ *cough 15k* at amnesia to … well, whatever the fuck that was’
The EDM giant shared his new take on the classic theme yesterday, but his longtime rival Deadmau5 has since called him for it – claiming that he remixed the track himself ‘before it was cool’, before referring to the track as ‘whatever the fuck that was’.
“Yeah well. I remixed Ghost In The Shell before it was cool,” he wrote on Twitter. “Which is actually kind of weird… ecause it was about that same time in 95-98 I did ‘stuff I used to do’. Neat.”
He added: “But anyway… I’m not sure how you get from ‘gettin paid a million bucks’ *cough 15k* at amnesia to … well, whatever the fuck that was.”
Deadmau5 also recently made headlines after starting a massive Twitter feud with former collaborator Glenn Morrison.

“This is a big day for me,” said Aoki of his remix. “Especially for teenage youth me – when I first watched the anime Ghost In The Shell that planted the seeds for my imagination and obsession for sci-fi android life, AI singularity and, later, the blueprints towards my Neon Future ideology.”
The filmmakers behind the new remake of Ghost In The Shell, meanwhile, were recently accused of “whitewashing” after Scarlett Johansson, who is Manhattan-born of Danish and Polish heritage, was cast as Kusanagi. Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is directing the remake, which is due for release on March 31.
Responding to the controversy, Johansson has told Marie Claire: “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive.”
