Deadmau5 has revealed that he thinks EDM died last year in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
Addressing comments he made in 2014 about his thoughts on the impending death of EDM, Deadmau5 said, “It already did in 2015. Where have you been? 85 percent crossed over. It's fucked. It's out of the innovators' hands; it's not really grassroots anymore. I'm partially responsible – I've done my part to commercialize shit. Oversaturation.”
Deadmau5 was announced as a new artist to join BBC Radio 1’s Residency series in 2017, alongside Eats Everything, Helena Hauff, Jessy Lanza and Metrik.
The mau5trap boss also promised to release a 20-strong collection of old and new tracks via iTunes which is set to land in February, following the arrival of his new full-length 'W:/2016ALBUM/' earlier this month (December).
