Tiësto Is Not A Fan Of Daft Punk: The World’s Highest Paid DJ Explains

89297119048558b64d9423cd6c89e444 Tiësto Is Not A Fan Of Daft Punk: The World’s Highest Paid DJ Explains

If you have been inside a nightclub in the last decade, chances are you’ve seen Tiësto or at least danced to one of his remixes. The 44-year-old is the King of clubs and has the receipts to back it up. He’s also rather outspoken and told Huffington Post exactly what he thinks of Daft Punk — claiming the hype surrounding the French duo’s Random Access Memories was unwarranted.

The Dutchman disses the number one album, saying: “It got so much attention because it’s so different and it’s an attitude album. It’s cool to like Daft Punk. Even if you’re not into the song, as soon as you hear [“Get Lucky"], you see all the cool people go, ‘Oh yeah, this is cool, that’s my song,’ and they don’t really even enjoy it. I’m destroying them now, sorry Daft Punk.”

Her didn’t stop there. “But because it’s Daft Punk and they’re supposed to be cool and they had the amazing pyramid at Coachella a couple of years ago and the helmets — they’re fucking cool. But the music doesn’t deliver on the hype so much.”

Tiësto even carried out an experiment to prove his point. Once when “Get Lucky” was playing in a club, he spoke to some women and asked if they really liked the song. “They went quiet and were like, ‘Uh… it’s all right, it’s all right.’ That’s what I mean. Because it’s Daft Punk and we want to believe the hype — we are cool people so we have to think this is cool.”

Perhaps he needs to hook up with Diplo to vent their mutual frustration?
