Hello Everyone!!! First off I am not as mad as people may think and I want to be very clear that “Work that Deadmouse” has nothing to do with 2PAC and Biggie Smalls conflict, it was more humorous than anything else please do not compare this track for it was not made for that purpose. Thank you!

I also understand this is a great opportunity for “trainspotters” to write a review and put there 50 cents in on why I made this track. Yet the only people who knew how it went down is me, Deadmau5 & his managers.

Allow me to give you a little history about this track: I made the original Paco di Bango in 1997 under the label Urban Sound of Amsterdam and the reason I made the track in the first place was because of cheesy music that was being played in the 90’s however due to the cover having a Playboy logo that was altered with the middle finger up the track had to be pulled after only being out less than one month.

Hugh Hefner became agitated and sent 4 lawyers my way and the record company very quickly had to pull the release. This caused a little bit of a steer in the media hence we had to re-release the record and change the name from “Playboy” into “PB” which was not as prevailing as Playboy.

Last year Deadmau5 had posted on his Facebook blog that he had a track stuck in his mind (Paco di bango) and made it clear to his fans that he wanted to remix it and put it out on his mousetrap label. So I contacted Joel on Skypee to discuss negotiations on releasing Paco di Bango.

I thought to myself well why not? I could let the track have a new life and Joel “Deadmau5” told me to discuss my terms with his managers. His management team came back with a memo deal agreement that was less desirable and shortly after that Joel had the remix finished before terms were even agreed upon by both parties. Questioning the motives yet I still thought to myself let's see where this is headed because my original will still remain the original and Deadmau5’s remix could possibly reach a different audience bringing Paco back to life as I saw Deadmau5 having a whole new generation of fans!

Deadmaus had a real cocky attitude and stated that 99% of his fans were 18+ year old kids “who don't know shit about music but it was all good for him” I laughed it off and said to him I know about this business way to well yet I don't cater to the younger audience - my fan base is more matured from 90’s.

During our many conversations on Skypee Joel had promised to get a deal going with an advance of $5000.00 I said no problem dude and when my manager proposed that amount to his managers they said they weren't going to pay anything and wanted to do a 50/50 split of the generated income. I went back to the mouse and told him WTF is this?

He told me his ass was tied to his managers and couldn't wipe off without the approval of them. Thus the deal we had agreed upon would not happen and I knew from the moment I heard the remix it was a pile of crap however I still allowed him the ok and with the remix and signed the memo deal agreeing on the 50/50 split.

Once I received their "memo deal" which was nothing more than a piece of paper with a name header and no physical address or anything that a normal agreement should contain. I replied to his managers "look you think I am a dummy or something?” I’ve been in this business well over 2 decades and you cannot fool me with the legalities on this document and I had declined their offer and told Deadmau5 that him and his managers are corny and that this mix was garbage and he could go to HELL. Joel responded with Deadmau5 mix is the best ever.... of all times and went on and on about his cocky self. The end result was that there me would be NO proper official release of Paco di bango World!

The aftermath: The Irony to all of this madness was I willing to at least give his remix a try to resurface Paco di bango’s existence and Joel and his fans started bashing the original. His fans praised Joel on the remix as if he was “godlike” and then to make the matter worse Joel started performing Paco di Bango all over the world using his mousehead to bang his head on which was the true motive for why he wanted the track so badly. Deadmau5 did not create Paco Orlando Voorn created Paco. Joel is not even capable of bringing the remix out properly due to (his own words) for not being able to wipe his own ass without approval of his managers.

This turned my stomach having to read little kids and even 25 year olds bashing the original as if Deadmau5 came up with the concept himself - his remix was garbage and now Joel has a new track called “City in Florida” I wonder where is got the idea? Hint, hint.

Nevertheless I waited a while and went back to my daily routine of producing quality dance music and about two weeks ago I felt that the world needed to know that Paco di Bango was my creation not Deadmau5’s and that I do not support the commercialized remix that he has turned my production into so I decided let me make a VERY bold statement through music and bash his "remix" that he can't put out except through an alias title “City in Florida” Why did I make this track? Well it’s pretty simple -it’s a perfect way to get even with this a deadmouse which took less than an hour out my day to resurface Paco from the jungle – I made it out raw and not polished. ....and IF Deadmau5 fans are sensitive to “Work that Deadmouse” so be it! Long live the UNDERGROUND!!!!



Orlando Voorn

deadmau5 maybe cocky, but it's not like this guy is mr. humble either,,

If deadmau5 wanted to remix my song and give me 50%, hell even 25% of profit, i would jump on that like there's no tomorrow.

Uhm... What is this...

"I heard the remix it was a pile of crap however I still allowed him the ok and with the remix and signed the memo deal agreeing on the 50/50 split."

Then, after that, he writes:

"Once I received their "memo deal" which was nothing more than a piece of paper with a name header and no physical address or anything that a normal agreement should contain. I replied to his managers "look you think I am a dummy or something?” I’ve been in this business well over 2 decades and you cannot fool me with the legalities on this document and I had declined their offer and told Deadmau5 that him and his managers are corny and that this mix was garbage and he could go to HELL."

It seems like you've (Orlando Voorn) eventually signed this "memo deal", and then... you received the "memo deal" (wtf?) and didn't like it. There's something wrong with this part. Maybe I'm just missing something, please explain if I am.

What I can also tell out of this, is that you personally ment that Deadmau5's remix was a "pile of crap". Still you agreed (you said you signed it) upon Deadmau5 releasing the remix, which you obviously did for the 50 % income and the eventual self promotion (you wrote this yourself). It seems like you didn't like Deadmau5's cockyness or the crappy deal(s), but that you eventually let go of that. Then, what really pissed you off was when people started bashing your original track. Now... please document this for us lazy people. Link the forum pages, tell us where these comments are. After a quick look on the youtube videos; what I could tell now is that people are on your side.

You're also writing this:
"Deadmau5 did not create Paco, Orlando Voorn created Paco."
So, you're saying people believe "Orlando Voorn - Paco Di Bango's World" is a ripoff off "Orlando Voorn - Paco Di Bango's World (Deadmau5 Remix)"? How could this be?

I haven't even heard Deadmau5's side of the story yet, and your story could certainly be a bit better explained... if his remix really worries you so much.

I can understand you got pissed of about the agreement deals, if what you're saying is true. But as you wrote that you eventually agreed on the deal, the rest doesn't make much more sense than that this is jealousy.

You think at their age they would've learned a little thing called maturity and respect...
