The good vibes typically shared among DJs every March at Miami’s Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival have taken an unexpected turn in the opposite direction with DJ Sneak and Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello embarking on a war of words — or tweets, actually.
The two world renown DJs began mixing it up after DJ Sneak and Junior Sanchez began exchanging casual tweets mentioning Swedish House Mafia on March 27.
One thing led to another and Sneak apparently began amping up his criticism of Swedish House Mafia on Twitter. That didn’t go down well with Steve Angello, who fired backed at Sneak.
Several DJs have weighed in on the row including Roger Sanchez who tweeted: “The truth is we r ALL in this 2gether- we’ve spent YEARS building this – now that the world FINALLY.” He later added: “djSneak is also Fam & he deserves respect & every1 I entitled 2 opinions but I agree w @steveangello.”
Perhaps one of the more humorous comments about the brouhaha came from Dennis Ferrer: “JESUS ALMIGHTY!! For once It isn’t me starting sh*t on twitter. I don’t feel alone anymore.”
