    I'm really having fun about how people get angry because the music they don't like becomes more popular than any artists from their own playlists. It's like the world owes them and has to listen only to the stuff they approve of. Chill out, kids, nobody forces you into anything. [3]

    I didn't like the vibe change at Recess at first, but now that I'm getting eased into it, I'm absolutely starting to love it and appreciate its alternativity! And for any of you hatefags who think it's funny to nominate Skrillex as the Bieber of EDM, you can just go and fuck yourself. This gentleman is making his unique sounds here folks, just as any other producer does -

    Skrillex may drop the bass but bass hunter hunts bass for a living he's probably dropped more bass than skrillex has in one week. #bassedgod [2]
