Diplo has stated that DJ culture is “lame”

In a recent interview with Billboard, Diplo admitted he hates DJ culture.

The Mad Decent head-honcho is arguably one of the most prolific figures in electronic music, however it seems the culture that comes with it is not his cup-of-tea.

“The DJ world is the corniest fucking group of people. We’re not famous for any good reason. We’re just really lame. Besides people like Dillon Francis, who makes fun of the whole thing, or Calvin Harris, it’s a sinking ship” Diplo explained.

“It’s a really lame culture. I’m sad that I’m part of it, but I play the game.”

With that said, the ever-busy producer – who recently confirmed a new collaboration with Justin Bieber and  – is certainly one of the hardest working in the industry. Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager, said Diplo’s motto is to grasp every opportunity.

“He always has said to me, ‘You never really know when your moment is going to end, so you’ve got to seize the moment.'”

Do you agree with Diplo on DJ culture?
