The bigger the producer, the bigger the features, right? Well, one artist seems to think the feature game has gotten a little out of hand.
In the wake of Calvin Harris' star-studded album announcement, deadmau5 took to Twitter to bemoan the proliferation of features. He worries that it's not so much about artist-to-artist vision, and more a grab for radio play. After all, two superstars for the price of one is like trying to climb the charts with a pop-magnet.
Features have been a big part of Calvin Harris' work since he first made terrestrial radio crossover. It's a big part of modern dance music culture, just as it is with hip-hop. Still, deadmau5 has achieved staggering success with listeners without many features or pop crossover. Does he have a point? Check out his argument below.
