While Diplo and Skrillex have collectively generated a buzz as Jack U this summer, the audience at this year’s Burning Man festivities did not seem as appreciative. Filling in for Seth Troxler, who dropped out his set last minute, the duo gladly took over the stage responsibility. While Skrillex offered a relatively well-received set, the mood went downhill as Diplo entered the stage and played DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s smash hit, “Turn Down For What.” As Pulse Radio points out, the crowd reacted with angry boos, forcing the duo to leave the stage. Today, Diplo has shared his view on what went down in the desert of Nevada, stating that “Turn Down For What” was played as a joke and the duo was not booed off stage
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..
