Earlier this year Seth Troxler made comments about Avicii, and Hardwell isn’t taking it lightly. During the IMS in Ibiza, Troxler described Avicii and his manager, Ash Pournouri as a “Milli Vanilli situation”, questioning the recent involvement in production credit.
This wasn’t the first time Troxler has made such crude comments about Avicii. At another event, he called him a “fucking cunt who wouldn’t even speak to the nurse” after falling ill at Ultra Music Festival. Hardwell has had enough and has spoken out against the comments calling them “bullshit” and “really unnecessary”.
In addition to these comments, Hardwell went on to say “Why should you hate on Avicii? He’s an amazing, talented guy, and everything he [Troxler] said about him and Ash [Pournouri], that Ash had to answer everything in the hospital, is just the biggest bullshit I’ve ever heard. I’ve known Tim for over six years and he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.
“We’re all doing the same things, we’re all in this business for the love of music, even if you play techno, deep house, main stage or big-room house, you know? I don’t get it, spending so much hate and time on doing that, we should appreciate each other.”
Good job Hardwell for speaking up for your fellow producer!
