Deamau5 unveiled his new Cube 2.1 stage set-up over the weekend, in a YouTube video that showed parts of the development process as well as his new live show in action. You can watch it below.

The mau5trap boss gave the first glimpse of his Cube 2.1 when he performed material from his new record, ‘W:/2016ALBUM/’, ahead of its release on Friday 2nd December.

Deadmau5 is taking the new Cube 2.1 stage set-up out on tour next year, starting his US dates at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday 29th March, before a relentless schedule ends in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom on Friday 5th May.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Deadmau5 revealed that he thought EDM died in 2015. That was after he was announced as one of the new artists joining BBC Radio 1 for its Residency series in 2017, alongside Eats Everything, Helena Hauff, Jessy Lanza and Metrik.
