Skrillex is standing by his song!
Casey Dienel — who performs under the name White Hinterland — filed a lawsuit alleging that the music producer and the superstar ripped off the 31-year-old’s song Ring The Bell, saying they swiped “unique characteristics of the female vocal riff.”
However, the 28-year-old is taking to Twitter to slam the suit, and even offered up video proof that he and cowriter Julia Michaels organically created their song’s signature run, posting:
Well, that definitely shows they didn’t directly sample White Hinterland’s song!
Buuuuut the legal complaint’s main concern is the similarities in the vocal riffs, which are pretty uncanny. How do U think this suit will play out, Perezcious readers?!
Will J.B. and Skrillex have to pay up?!
