Sven Väth Fought Against EDM, Literally

In a recent interview, Norman Cook AKA Fatboy Slim waxed nostalgic over witnessing German house and techno legend Sven Väth get into a fight with Swedish House Mafia over EDM at an Australian festival. “The highlight last time was witnessing this fight between Swedish House Mafia and Sven Väth outside a restaurant in Sydney,” he says. “That’s my overriding memory… It was quite a comedy. It wasn’t a serious fight, no one got hurt. It was really about EDM versus house purism. EDM outgunned the house purism but on the moral high ground it was probably Sven.”  We’re confident Sven will keep on fighting the good fight, just like he was doing back in ’91.
