Deadmau5 Tweets An Offer To Purchase SFX, Dig At Sillerman

Deadmau5 is what my dad would call a “wiseass.” Today, the DJ/producer who is notorious for his back and forth banter via Twitter had to get a dig in towards now-SFX-chairman Robert Sillerman. Formerly the CEO, Sillerman has been identified as a huge reason SFX Entertainment recently filed for bankruptcy. The Mau5 tweeted an offer of $14 million for the company, along with a screenshot of a recent Forbes article on it’s unfortunate economic status. The attached image shows a part of the write up where Sillerman was quoted in 2012 admitting that he knew “nothing about EDM.”

While Deadmau5 may be the most outspoken, he’s certainly not the only one disappointed in Sillerman’s inability to keep the business afloat. Currently, SFX is in major crisis management mode in an effort to restructure the entire entertainment company. For many, the hope is that they can revive the brand responsible for events around the world like TomorrowWorld, Electric Zoo, Mysteryland and more. And while it’s clear that SFX Entertainment is in need of some serious help, we’re not sure that an artist like Joel Zimmerman is the man for the job.

East coast origin, West coast lifestyle… Growing up I was always surrounded by the sounds of dance music in New York and Florida. However, it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the rave scene and finally experienced the love and positivity this community is all about. I’m into warehouse undergrounds and massives like Ultra Miami, TomorrowWorld, Nocturnal Wonderland, Hard Day of the Dead, and Buku Music & Art Festival… In addition to EDM, my playlists usually have a lot of Hip-Hop, Top 40 and I’m a huge sucker for throwbacks. Hit me up if you’re attending an event in the Hollywood/LA area, as I’m always open to making new friends!
