A true success story of 2009, emerging from the progressive house underground to become a chart contender, deadmau5 – or Toronto-based Joel Zimmerman to his folks – is in a rare position of being both critically feted and able to court serious attention from the mainstream. This new mix album – his own material, but sequenced so it doesn’t stop for even a second’s silence – features Zimmerman’s popular collaboration with Pendulum’s Rob Swire, Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff. At the time of writing the song has enjoyed a fantastic nine weeks inside the UK top 40, making it one of the biggest dance anthems of the year. But better, and included here, is the Moar-prefixed instrumental take on the hit – it’s like Hammer Horror Justice, or a brain-damaged Daft Punk, and every bit as evilly euphoric as that sounds.
Born and raised in Niagara Falls, Canada, Joel Zimmerman (aka “deadmau5”) has become one of the most sought-after artists on the electronic music scene in recent times. He is known for his highly entertaining live gigs, often performing wearing a large cartoon mouse head. He first started his career as co-producer of the Niagara Falls radio show “The Party Revolution” (101.1 The Planet). After gaining exposure to all the many facets of electronic music, Joel then moved on to collaborate with many other artists and record labels around the world.
