Iconic producer / DJ Deadmau5 has never been one to shy away from controversy (having a track record a mile long of infamous call outs with everyone from Tiesto to Ultra Music Festival), but Joel still has a faithful following and worldwide recognition for his massive contributions for propelling electronic music to the heights. Deadmau5 recently took to Twitter after a show in Miami to declare war against the "trust fund kids" who disallowed his true fans from experiencing his music at Mansion on NYD. He even went as far to say he wouldn't play anymore Miami nightclubs in the future. This bold statement prompted the owner of Space Miami to offer to cover Deadmau5 wages in order to put on a free show at one of their venues. After weeks of waiting, it looks like the show is a 100% free show with ticket registration taking place January 28th and the show schedule on February 15th from 10pm – 5am. Say what you want about Deadmau5, but a free show of this caliber is a pretty boss move and will surely be something to not miss if you live in the area of anywhere, or able to travel. Enjoy

Daft Punk Win 5 Grammys Including ‘Album of the Year’ With Special Live Performance (Video) with Pharrell and Stevie WonderPosted in Bangin, News, Video by nick | Tags: Daft Punk, Get Lucky, Grammys, Nile Rodgers, Pharrell, Pharrell Williams, Random Access Memories, Stevie Wonder, Video
Wow Daft Punk just did some serious damage at the 56th Annual Grammys, taking home all 5 awards they were nominated for. The most earth shattering of them all was taking home the most prestegious award of the entire ceremony, Album of the Year for their album Random Access Memories; as well as Best Dance / Electronica Album, Best Engineered Album, Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo / Group Performance for their single with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers , "Get Lucky". This is a landmark statement for electronic music overall as it is the first ever electronic / dance album in the Grammys history to get both nominated and win best album overall.
The producer / DJ duo also made their triumphant return to the stage with their first performance in years on TV worldwide as they took to the stage with assistance from Pharrell (Wearing an oversized hat that stirred up Twitter "Beef" with Arby's), Nile Rodgers and even brought out musical legend Stevie Wonder for an energetic performance that had a audience full of celebrities rocking out. We can hope this means we can expect some Daft Punk live shows possibly by the end of the year? Maybe 2015? At least this restores faith that the French dream team still have an interest in playing more live shows in the future.
