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

As electronic music evolves into new frontiers almost every day, so does the technology producers/DJs use to not only create music but use during live performances. Deadmau5 has always been a bit of a software geek when it comes to utilizing a number of state of the art equipment for his productions. He recently unveiled a video of a new custom touch screen DJ Controller / Producer software device that Deadmau5 worked on with Microsoft. Though this is just a preview of the new device, that we are sure to hear about a lot more in the next few months. Check out the video and imagine the possibilities below.
Deadmau5 Partners with Microsoft to Unveil Custom Touch Screen Software
It looks like the feud between Deadmau5 (one of electronic music’s biggest voices) and Flo Rida (an artist known for cashing in on copying others sounds) has taken another entertaining turn. A few weeks ago, Deadmau5 publicly bashed the hip-hop star for unveiling a new product called ‘Beamz By Flo’ (watch the official commercial here). This shameful “state-of-the-art musical instrument” enables people of all ages and skill levels to have fun creating and playing music. While filming his “Coffee Run” series, Deadmau5 displayed what he really thinks of Flo Rida’s new marketing gimmick.
.@beamzmusic i dont recall agreeing to any terms of you using my likeness and trademark to sell your shitty product.

With back and forth exchanges between the two parties occurring over Twitter, it seemed that things had at least settled down for the time being. That is until today when Deadmau5 discovered the latest official promotional video by Beamz & Flo Rida that not only takes a cheap shot at the producer, but uses his likeness and trademark “mau5 head” without his consent. Seems like the Mau5 might actually be looking to take legal action based on his tweets. (More below the video)
tweets and parodies are all fun and games, but i feel that that looks like a legitimate advertisement, wouldn’t you agree?

Deadmau5 releases more new music including four amazing completed songs ‘Avaritia’, ‘Phantoms Can’t Hang’, and ‘Creep’Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Deadmau5, Dubstep, Electro House, Techno
Deadmau5 has been on a tyrant of uploading new music as usual over the past few days, some still in progress but four complete songs that sound amazing. ‘Phantoms Can’t Hang’ is an epic 9 minute long journey that is one of the most impressive tracks I have heard in quite some time from the Mau5. It packs quite a few unexpected turns and is crying for an awesome music video. The latest upload is titled ‘Avaritia’ and packs an abrupt drop and moves to a progressive gritty groove. We also get his long awaited 5 year the in the process ‘Creep’, and an updated version aptly titled ‘Creep 2K13′. With all these new tracks we can definitely expect a full album in the next few months. Stream and enjoy for now.

Deadmau5 follows up his entertaining Coffee Break interview with Zedd (watch the Zedd Coffee Break here), this time taking critically acclaimed hip-hop / electronic producer Pharrell for a journey to Tim Horton’s. We get the entire journey totalling in just under 35 minutes, getting to see a more humanistic side of both artists. They touch on Notorious B.I.G., Electric Cars, Family Life, working hard as kid and more. Should we be getting our hopes up for a potential collaboration between both this artists? Enjoy.
Deadmau5 takes Zedd on an entertaining “Coffee Break!” car ride while interviewing him. He brings up questions about Zedd’s nationwide Clarity Tour that he has recently kicked off. Zedd also will not encouraging Deadmau5 to bring his iconic Mau5 head to his concert that evening. Zedd and Joel even comically discuss the writer of the lyrics for his song “Shave It”. We also get some typical backhanded Deadmau5 remarks slipped in the mix about Drake, Paramore and Avicii.
The video adds a very humanizing quality to both incredible producer / DJ’s. Hopefully Deadmau5 is serious and does continue this Coffee Break interview series.
Deadmau5 previews more incredible Unreleased songs “petspetspetspetspetspetspetspetsPETSpets” and “Sparrows Made Of Lead” and morePosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: BANGER, Deadmau5, Deep House, Electro House, House, Techno, Trance, Unreleased
Deadmau5 has been releasing more previews via soundcloud of unreleased and sometimes in progress songs from his new album, and now finally get to hear 3 tracks that sound like potential album songs. The first and newest track he just dropped less then 4 hours ago “petspetspetspetspetspetspetspetsPETSpets” sounds like a rebirth to his insanely melodic anthem”Strobe” filled with mesmerizing synths. Next up we have “Sparrows Made Of Lead”, which is an 8 minute cinematic journey that reminding me of some more old school Deadmau5 with his song “Sometimes Things Get Complicated”. Then we get “Errors In My Head” which is another great track which Deadmau5 has temporarily included the vocals from his remix to Kaskad “I Remember”. Overall it seems like Deadmau5 is moving to some of his older roots, and I couldn’t be any more supportive. These are easily some of my favorite tracks I have heard him make in quite some time. Listen below and we will keep you posted on news on anything to do with release. Enjoy.
