Deadmau5 is the stage name of the talented and iconic Canadian producer Joel Thomas Zimmerman, who has earned the reputation that everything he touches turns to gold. Born and raised outside of Toronto, Joel began his music career in the early 90s, working on and producing chiptunes. He then transitioned into producing electro house tracks, and with that he started his own record label Mau5trap.
Deadmau5 really made his presence known with the release of his album “Random Album Title” in 2008, working alongside well known producer Kaskade to create “I Remember”. With the creation of “Ghosts N Stuff”, on the album “For Lack of a Better Name”, Deadmau5 became a household name in the music industry. “Ghosts N Stuff” made it to the top of the US Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2010, 24 weeks in a row. Simultaneously, Deadmau5 released the track “Strobe”, which is considered by many of Deadmau5′s fans to be his best ever.
Deadmau5 has created some true house music masterpieces and his live performances are a story in itself. He is known for his extravagant headpieces, which he wears during his live shows, atop his cube-shaped neon stage. The musical excellence paired with amazing light shows in sync with the beats are an experience that should not be missed!
