Deadmau5 has been vocal about his distaste for Diplo, Skrillex, and Justin Bieber’s hit “Where Are Ü Now,” and now he’s taking it out on the New York Times, which published an interactive about the making of the song on Tuesday.

In the video, Bieber explained the hit track: “It’s expensive, you know what I mean? It’s like the sounds that are used are not cheap. They’re very expensive-sounding sounds.”

That didn’t sit well with Deadmau5.

He even Instagrammed a video, making fun of the comment.

Yeah. It's expensive allright. This fucking remix cost me 60k.

Diplo responded…

Earlier this summer, Deadmau5 dissed the track on Twitter writing, “made the mistake of listening to this jack u sh– with bieber assuming they at least did something cool… nope. what the f— is this sh–?” which prompted Skrillex to respond in an interview with New York’s 92.3 Amp Radio. “I don’t take it personally because I’m secure with myself and what I do. I love what I do but I almost feel bad that that’s his one way of getting attention rather than going into music and curating.”
