The snippet begins with a glimpse of a red deadmau5 helmet with illuminating eyeballs. The 2008 video then showcases deadmau5 behind a small mixer in a club that is significantly smaller than the venues and festivals he performs at today.
Last Thursday marked deadmau5’s first show of his new BBC Radio 1 residency.
Next month, deadmau5 will release his ‘Stuff I Used To Do’ album that’s chock full of remastered tracks ranging from the years 1998 to 2007.
