Another day another legal battle for deadmau5, and this time he is going to bat for his cat!

The Canadian DJ/producer is petitioning the U.S. Patent and Trademark office to cancel a Florida woman’s trademark, claiming that her use of meowingtongs.com, a cat themed apparel and gifts site, is intentionally using the name to make money off of the recognition that comes with the name – associated with deadmau5 and his famous cat.

Interview: 10 Quick Fire Questions!

Get to know the hosts of the EDM 10 with these 10 quick fire questions!

  1. How long have you been interested in dance music?
    Harmony:
    Since I was at least 7, I remember my mom listening to the radio in the late 90s and hearing Bananarama’s “Cruel Summer” and being super into “Blue” by Eiffel 65 and being totally sold.
    Gabriel: I’ve been interested in dance music basically my entire life! I grew up listening to old school eurodance and trance jams and that morphed into a love and appreciation for all the many different sub-genres of electronic dance music.

  2. If you could have any DJ headline your birthday party who would it be?
    H: Dillon Francis – hands down. If he could bring Gerald I think that would be a bonus. Plus there would be a lit snapstory about the show so best birthday ever!
    G: THIS IS TOUGH! I would have to say… Tiesto. I discovered his music when I was maybe 11 or 12 and I’ve been a huge Tiesto fanboy ever since. And celebrating your birthday with Tiesto? Come on… That would be legendary!

  3. Pick: Axwell or Ingrosso?
    H:
     They are both awesome but – Sebastian Ingrosso.
    G: ALSO TOUGH! Axwell… but I have mad love for you too, Seb!

  4. What is your favorite part of hosting the EDM 10?
    H:
     I’ve always loved countdowns – of anything, so getting to countdown my favorite songs is so awesome and exciting to me. I love how they can totally change week to week, so unpredictable. And I do love a good upset.
    G: I have a huge passion for dance music and being able play the music and talk about the scene for an hour every week… it’s awesome. Plus Harmony is one of my best friends so the show doesn’t even feel like work. It’s like hanging out with your friend, talking about music. What’s better than that??

  5. Who do you think will dominate the EDM 10 in 2017?
    H: I think that Marshmello is going to get even bigger in 2017 – but I wouldn’t count out The Chainsmokers, either. They have had an incredible run over the last two years and I don’t think they’ve hit max capacity yet. But I’d also really love to see Dillon Bae Francis dominate.
    G: I think The Chainsmokers will have another killer year so I bet we’ll be seeing them at #1 a lot.

  6. Go to coffee order?
    H: (at Starbucks) Venti Starbucks Double Shot on ice sub white chocolate for classic with non-fat milk or an iced non-fat vanilla latte. Depends if I am feeling basic or not…
    G: Iced vanilla soy latte! ALWAYS iced, even when it’s freezing outside. And always soy because I live that #VeganLife! haha

  7. What dance song would you sing at karaoke?
    H: Jonas Blue “Perfect Strangers”
    G: Everytime We Touch by Cascada. A classic!

  8. Pick a helmeted DJ: Daft Punk or Marshmello?
    H: Daft Punk – I have a tattoo of one of their lyrics.
    G: Harmony must have said Daft Punk… I know that for sure. I gotta go with Marshmello. I’m a big fan of his music, plus I had the chance to meet him once and he was so cool and down to earth. You have to respect someone who’s gotten to that level of fame but kept a humble attitude.

  9. If you were stuck on a desert island whose music would you pick to take with you?
    H: It would have to be either Daft Punk or Kaskade…
    G: I don’t know if I can pick just one artist… either Tiesto or The Chainsmokers. Probably Tiesto since he has such a giant catalog of music. It would definitely last me until I got rescued. I get rescued eventually, right?


  10. Why should someone listen to the EDM 10?
    H: Not only do you get to hear the best music in the world but I think Gabriel and I have some pretty funny and interesting moments in between the songs as well! And although they aren’t part of the official countdown, the extras can be hella jammy, too.
    G: Because they want to prove their good taste? Just kidding… Well that is a good reason though. I really think a show like the EDM Ten is special. Despite how mainstream it seems the EDM scene has gotten, it’s not out there as much as hip hop or pop music. We’re almost still having to prove that electronic music is legitimate. I think supporting a show all about dance music and the culture around it is really cool and maybe even important.
