As we all know, Skrillex and Diplo's Jack Ü hit critical mass with the smash hit "Where R Ü Now" with Justin Bieber, which won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, peaked within the top 10 on charts in eight countries and has since been certified platinum three times over.

"You just gotta go on with that feeling of inspiration... And a lot of times you end up somewhere you don't ever expect to be," Skrillex said in a new interview with Rolling Stone."

And now after recently producing and collaborating on Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album Purpose, Skrillex continues to speak highly of Bieber saying that he did in fact enjoy working with the pop prince.

"...I'm a fan of his voice. And if you're a producer and you get an opportunity to work with someone who's the biggest artist in the world – for better or for worse – what would you say? Would you say no?" he told Rolling stone.

And this is exactly how Skrillex responded when Rolling Stone brought up deadmau5's past comments condemning the collab.

"It’s not that I hate Skrillex, and I hate the shit he does… I hate that he allowed himself to be a goddamn tool for [Justin]," Joel said in a video he shared back in December (reposted below).

Skrillex continued telling Rolling Stone, "If [deadmau5] was a real friend, he would come to me and be like, 'Yo, you shouldn't be working for Justin Bieber,' rather than blowing it up all over the internet and going out of his way to make people feel wrong for making a choice in their life."

Another highlight from the interview was Skrillex's response to the ever-popular question of whether the "EDM bubble" has burst.

"...people won't stop making music on the computer until computers go away. But as far as a certain culture and aspect of EDM, yeah, I do believe that it will go away, because the ratio of businesspeople is trumping the ratio of actual artistry."
