Fans in the house and tech house world have been closely following, debating, and making memes about the #camelgate controversy since it began on Saturday night. Seth Troxler, the DJ behind the Instagram post that kicked off the debate, made a series of social media posts critical of CamelPhat's music.
In an Instagram story post that was later memed by Eden, the vocalist from CamelPhat's "Siren Song," Troxler said "The Matrix is broken or everyone has gone dumb" and later wrote "kill me" over a screenshot of the duo's Twitter bio mentioning their Grammy nomination.
This led to widespread debate among other producers and fans alike. A notable reply came from when Eric Prydz caught wind of the controversy and weighed in. In a series of tweets, Prydz both came to the defense of the British duo as well as call upon Troxler to use Twitter and his music to "...show us all what we all have been missing... show me your resent music that will outlive 'Cola' or 'constellations.'"
The discussion will likely continue among fans in various threads online as Troxler held firm and doubled down on his opinions, calling their music "EDM disguised as house music."
