Not a day goes by where some sort of DJ Twitter beef surfaces and takes the blogs by storm. Sometimes they are warranted, while other times it’s just kind of fun to laugh at. The most recent one comes from an unlikely suspect. Nicky Romero called out Hardwell after the latter tweeted out an 8-bit rendition of himself.
Apparently, Nicky Romero thinks that Hardwell stole his idea after Nicky originally used a similar concept when launching a video game and remastered song as part of a publicity campaign a few months ago. Hardwell was quick to respond with clarifications on that matter, which all in all seemed a little far-fetched to even be considered an issue.
We can let you decide for yourself after looking at the social media exchange below!
Copying is the highest form of flattery

@HARDWELL @UtdSchweini we finished the game in January also, it’s just we did a whole 8bit campaign. It’s on you 🙂 pic.twitter.com/ifZVpcCiy4 — Nicky Romero (@nickyromero) November 5, 2015
Fun fact: These guys made a song together way back in 2011.
