Deadmau5 Mistakenly Receives Award for Calvin Harris

Scottish producer and DJ Calvin Harris has been on a roll as of late, receiving upwards of 400k per show and becoming the highest-paid EDM act of 2014. Recently, it seems that even after these major successes, some people still have some confusion on who he actually is.

One of his most popular tracks "Sweet Nothing" featuring Florence Welch earned double platinum status this past year, however the plaque was delivered to the biggest troll in the EDM community, deadmau5. He took to social media to share the unusual mix-up.

The producers share the same management, Three Six Zero / Roc Nation, which may have be the origin of the mistake. Regardless, both artists handled the mishap cordially, and found it pretty comical.
