deadmau5 is a Toronto native and has been known outside of his music for his popular "Coffee Run" video series where he takes guests in his car like Skrillex and Dillon Francis, Zedd or Pharrell. Well he brought this idea to the streets as he was an Uber driver for the evening in the downtown Toronto area. Here are his tweets announcing it and look below for the video recap of him actually picking up passengers that were lucky enough that evening. Who knows if he might do it again.
We waited patiently on more announcements about Deadmau5' upcoming "Entropy" tour in 2015, which was first announced via Twitter in early August and today we have further information via 2 mysterious Youtube videos Zimmerman tweeted just minutes ago. Hopefully the "Entropy" tour will include his 5 year multi-million dollar vision of the "360" arena show he was speaking of earlier in March. This is all we know for now but will keep you up to date as the news comes in. Enjoy
So a few days back Disney decided to file a lawsuit against Deadmau5 claiming that his mau5head mouse logo was too simliar to their Mickey Mouse logo and infringed on their rights. You can see the two images compared side to side above.
While there is obviously some similarities with the 3 circles, smile and minimalstic design, it seemed pretty insane. Also with the fact that he has registered for a trademark in 30 other countries already. Well since America is America, when he tried to apply to get it in the US, he in return is facing a potential lawsuit with Disney.
Well just an hour ago Deadmau5 unleashed onto Facebook that Disney has actually done the unthinkable, in the middle of this heated debate between the two, Disney has decided to use his popular song "Ghosts N Stuff" without permission in a new online Disney "Re-micks" video edited to some Mickey cartoons. Watch the video here. (Before it gets taken down)
Deadmau5 seems to be very confident about the situation.
Deadmau5 actually has filed a cease and decist for the unpermitted content. The mau5 has gone ahead and uploaded the actual document, see what his team has to say below.

This is the big one folks! While visiting Toronto for a stop on the The Mothership Tour, Dillon Francis and Skrillex meet up with deadmau5 for the longest "Coffee Run" to date with the episode clocking in at an actual feature film length (Over an hour and a half!). With such a good amount of time recorded, a whole lot of comical conversation took place amongst some reportable information that will peak the interest of many. deadmau5 talks about hitting the road for a tour in 2015 (though we hope this takes place closer to the end of this year), Skrillex and Dillon have collaborated on two tracks thus-far while on tour, Skrillex is finishing one release with What So Not (guessing with just Emoh Instead and not Flume), and a Skrillex x Milo & Otis joint venture has at least been started. Other highlights include deadmau5 trying to pass off as Bob Saget around the 38 minute mark, the three producers rocking out to Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades" (50:47), and the constant verbal distain for Toronto traffic. Sit back and enjoy the video below!

deadmau5 Previews Funky New Song “Seeya (ft. Colleen D’Agostino)” From Upcoming Album + Mini InterviewPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Album, Colleen D'Agostino, Deadmau5, Funk, House
deadmau5 continues to build excitement for his newest artist album While (1<2) having already given out a preview of the first single "Avaritia" with a brand new track showcasing a different style we are used to hearing from him. "Seeya" is a gritty track in a soulful new direction with vocals from LA band The Material's singer Colleen D'Agostino. It sounds like something you may not expect from the mau5, and proves to the critics how diverse this new album really might be. We receive a small sample to tide us over, yet we expect to hear quite a bit more in the coming days and weeks leading to the highly anticipated release. It closes out with a sample of his interview primarily talking about his Ferrari, and briefly about the new album. Enjoy!
