Diplo refutes being booed off stage at Burning Man, ‘It was an inside joke’
Yesterday, PulseRadio reported that Diplo and Skrillex were booed off stage at the Robot Heart camp after the duo replaced Seth Troxler. The news quickly spread and sparked the debate; “Does EDM belong at Burning Man?” Some used the news as proof that the Burning Man experience is better off without being turnt up by main stream talents, but according to Diplo the scene was far less serious than Pulse made it out to be. To clear the air around the tabloidish reporting (We’re just as guilty as anyone), Diplo explained himself via Twitter, thanked the Robot Heart Camp, and cleared the air that the duo was not kicked off – they just wrapped up their set with an inside joke.
Despite rumors .. I wanna thank robot heart crew for putting together and awesome lineup or surprise guests and attendees that is gettin lost in a really lame false news story.. Although robot heart is anonymous and strictly a deeply quiet crew .. One of the founders .. Jaspn swamy loves this funny moment and is astounded that this is one of the busiest press stories from this years burning man.. Not only me and skrillex popped in but also above and beyond , thievery corp and Seth and many more underground artists.. No one is ever listed or promoted and all the lineups word of mouth .. I have been friends of Jason (who’s has booked me outside of bm in other countries) for many years and nothing on hear articles is true .. There was no booing .. No bad vibes … Nothing about seth troxler was true either… I wanna say one thing… I’m a dj thru and thru .. We did about 8 sets thru our few days at BM.. Ranging from trap dubstep at question mark to uk bass on the opulent temple .. Dub and classic reggae on the dancestranaught car and even deep techno and tribal house on robot heart.. Everyone on stage had a fun moment when we played a few tunes as we were Just killing time while the next dj was setting up.. We weren’t kicked off or booed .. Jus wrapped our set up with an inside joke … And of all the stories to come out after an amazing week… This is pretty tabloidish that’s not what burningman is about.. Everything we did there was good fun and all the people that attended knows it.
