Deadmau5 has expressed his discontent over musical collaborations on his Tumblr page. Despite recent joint efforts with the Foo Fighters and Cypress Hill, the Canadian producer states that musicians rather link up with fellow artists because of marketing reasons instead of actual association.

“Theres a perfectly valid reason why i dont usually enjoy the idea of a ‘collaboration’ … although you can rest assure whatever collaborations i have done in the past were the results of stuff im totally into, like Flipside, the Foo’s, Cyprus Hill [sic], etc. All too often, there’s an influx of ‘big names’ that would get thrown around the label from time to time and of course, they fly off the table and out the fuckin door faster than they hit my desk. eg. do you want to do a track with big name X, remix huge pop act y, etc etc. no. i fucking don’t. i really REALLY don’t.

im passionate about music, engineering said music, and especially art… at least i certainly feel that i am. And the last thing i want to do… is take the meanings and feelings of a piece of music and have some fucking dipshit blab about lookin sexy, poppin bottles, “droppin bass”, or ANYTHING club related. which fortunately for the world *rolls eyes* makes up for 99% of the “electronic music” fad that’s apparently considered mainstream now.”
