World famous producer, DJ, and internet troll Deadmau5 is an undisputed legend. The Mau5 has been releasing music since 1995 and has since developed a reputation as one of the most prominent creative minds in the industry. Having been a staple in a community that it is unclear whether he loves or loathes being a part of, it is undeniable that Deadmau5 is a master-class hitmaker with classics such as “Strobe,” “Ghosts N Stuff,” “The Veldt,” and numerous hits from his latest album while (1<2). In addition, Deadmau5 is a frequent collaborator of some of the largest names in the industry like Kaskade, Rob Swire of Knife Party, Wolfgang Gartner, Steve Duda, and Eric Prydz, making for some of the most memorable tracks and moments in electronic dance history. With many chart-topping releases, out-of-this-world live shows, his very own record label (Mau5trap), and an online personality that is far too entertaining, it is safe to say Deadmau5, born Joel Zimmerman, has left an impression on us all. For many, Zimmerman opened the door to electronic music, creating life-long fans across the globe. Most recently, Deadmau5 has been working on compilations of work. In 2017 he released a compilation of his earlier work ranging from the years of 1998 to 2007 on Twitter, titled stuff i used to do, and earlier this year he dropped a compilation album comprising orchestral performances of previously released music, titled Where’s the Drop? It seems as though Zimmerman never slows down, making him one to watch closely.
