MiMOSA Cries Over Timeslot at Mystic Music Festival, Fights DOWNLINK

mimosa-fights-downlink

Tigran MiMOSA, once a widely acclaimed genre-breaking bass music producer, has fallen from grace to become something akin to the Kanye of bass music. His performance at Mystic Music Festival last night was remarkable not because of his musicianship or vibe, but for what happened after his set. William Blaine (aka bass disciple Oscillator Z) was present at the festival and watched it all go down. On his Facebook he gives us a recap of what happened:

…Production puts [MiMOSA] on where Downlink was supposed to play. He didn’t wanna stop playing when his slot was up making Downlink be delayed. Production tried politely telling him his time was up; he threw the mic down into the CDJs and storms off. Comes back a minute later and starts saying, “Fuck Downlink!” on the mic. He gets pulled away and calms down for a minute. Moments later, out of nowhere, he pours a bottle of grey goose on Downlink. Instantly gets jumped. And we made him leave immediately.

Following the incident was a brazen (and presumably drunk) tweet by Tigran confirming the events that went down (and the less than favorable outcome):

Are MiMOSA’s actions and candor out of line? Is this part and parcel to a greater movement of conflict in the bass music scene, or an outstanding case of an individual with too much ego and not enough respect? Check out the statements from both artists below and tell us who you agree with:

In the end the joke’s on Mimosa: Downlink’s breakfast drink of choice doesn’t even have Grey Goose.
