deadmau5 reveals why he quit social media and discusses his depression to fans in honest post
Two new demos arrived after deadmau5 mysteriously disappeared from social media. While many fans were upset about a lack of communication from the masked, Canadian producer, the electronic music superstar revealed to fans on Tumblr exactly why he deleted his massive Twitter account. A brief disagreement with Skrillex, which many thought may have sparked the fan backlash that caused Joel to remove himself from social media, apparently had nothing to do with it.
While seemingly staying away from any form of social media for the immediate future, deadmau5 also commented that he’d be quickly returning to his newly built studio. The new clips recently released may be joining older uploads like “Blood For The Bloodgoat” on a new album, although no official news surrounding a full length project has resurfaced.
“like many other human beings, I’ve been dealing with some depression issues that i don’t need to go into detail with. Id consider myself far from emotionally stable, though, not unstable enough to know support when i see it. Deactivating social media for a minute has nothing at all to do with popstars or dubstep tryhards. It was a kneejerk reaction to something i saw coming a long time ago. Also, nobodies business but my own.
id like to apologize to my fans and supporters for fucking off so abruptly, and leaving them out of the loop in terms of developments in my career and some small glimpes into my personal life…. ill resume that program for you. It’s the holidays, so ill slow things down until the new year, and chill out with friends and loved ones on vacation till the 17th or so. Then it’s back into the new studio, where ill just keep being me, and making music.
Once again, sorry for being a dick to those who are fans and supporters.”
