Fact or Fiction: Steve Angello is a DJ

Known as one of the top DJ-producers in the world, Steve Angello is a household name in the electronic dance music world. He and his Swedish House Mafia comrades sell out shows around the world, offering their audience a unique audio experience like none-other, by taking club sounds to the world-stage. But, after a video was released of Steve Angello taking quite the breather in the booth at the 2011 Dance Valley music festival, it's caused an uproar among fans and Swedish House Mafia haters. Titled, "Steve Angello @ Dance Valley - How To Fake Your Fans," this isn't the greatest bit of press for Angello, especially when his career is still on the upswing.

Not to say that Angello pulled a complete Milli Vanilli, but the fact that his pre-recorded set at such a big event has been released, many may not deem it worthy to spend upwards of $50 to watch the DJ-producer pretend-fiddle with knobs on his mixer. His response via-TwitLonger:

"Can't believe you guys are still going for it . don't you have better things to do then make up bullshit to write about me faking a whole set when i just explained that it was the last 11 mins of my set so they could fire of the special fx and all the fireworks , stop with your bullshit and get on with your lives , if it would be up to you guys we would all be stuck in cells without electricity and banging on a floor without a big show so you would feel better for yourselves not being there , i would never fake a whole set in my entire life and those 10 mins are part of the show . if you don't wanna see fireworks and a massive finale stop buying tickets to events where that happens and stay home instead . i hate when people make up a big story and feed on it like sugar to ants . make something better of your time instead of wasting mine !! if you would put as much time on your own careers as you do talking shit maybe a thing like this wouldn't affect you , i know who my real fans are and you haters are not my real fans , cause if you would be you would get what i´m saying after seeing the shows we do , you probably haven't even been to any of my shows and won't ever come so drop it , get on with your lives ! - SA"

Valid point, and valid argument. But it still doesn't shy away from the fact that this will definitely become a thorn in the side of Angello as far as his reputation in music goes. Next time anyone buys a ticket for $50+ to his, or a Swedish House Mafia show, they'll definitely be thinking twice.
