Is Oshi's Joke Track Actually Funny?

London producer Oshi did something unusual (although not unheard of) on Soundcloud: he put out a track that mocks progressive house music. The song kind of has a build-up, kind of has a drop and kind of has big room vibes despite being less than a minute long. It's called "WHEN UR EDM AF!!!! SPINNIN' RECORDS SIGN ME PLS" and the sole hashtag is "# ITS A JOKE." Kind of funny, right? Maybe, but maybe not. For the record, I'm not a big fan of progressive house music. I rarely listen to it anymore for a variety of reasons. However, just because I'm not a fan doesn't mean that I go around making fun of progressive house music/fans. If you like something, then you like something. I'm not here to judge. That being said, I don't think Oshi should have put out a song mocking progressive house music. He's an extremely talented producer who has put out a lot of innovative music. Just because big room house doesn't float his boat doesn't mean that he should be taking a dig at people who enjoy it. UPDATE: Several hours after writing this article, Oshi took down "WHEN UR EDM AF!!!! SPINNIN' RECORDS SIGN ME PLS." Maybe he realized that the joke wasn't as funny as he thought.
