Deadmau5 has announced that he will host an online electronic music production tutorial through MasterClass, a company that boasts Usher and Werner Herzog as instructors.
The course is said to offer an “unabashed and unfiltered lesson” into how Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, makes his powerful sound, as well as an insight into his approaches to making melodies, mixing and mastering.
Deadmau5 revealed that his new full-length record, ‘W:/2016ALBUM/’, will be released on Friday 2nd December via his mau5trap imprint last week.
Now, he has shared the first material from it, a track titled ‘4ware’; giving Pete Tong the first spin of it on his BBC Radio 1 show on Friday night (4th November). You can listen to the eight-minute prog epic below.
Marshmello has dropped the official video for his debut OWSLA single, ‘Ritual’, which is released this week. You can watch it below.
The video features appearances from Skrillex, Valentino Khan, Slushii and other OWSLA affiliates, as well as the inclusion of a fake deadmau5.
Skrillex has voiced concerns on Deadmau5's not-so-friendly persona, in particular the Canadian's attack on up-and-coming EDM star Marshmello.
In an interview with Complex, Sonny Moore addresses the situation saying Deadmau5 was "acting like such a fucking bully" when he called Marshmello "annoying" and his fans a "brain dead posse of deaf sheep" in a Twitter outburst.
Deadmau5 has shared his ebortS remix of ‘Strobe’ for free on Twitter, whilst urging fans to “upload and pass it out”.
The remix didn’t make it onto Deadmau5’s full ‘Strobe’ remix collection, which was made available last week, but the mau5trap boss did tease that there would be a part two to follow up when it was unveiled.
Following the stream of Feed Me's pumping remix last week, Deadmau5's full 'Strobe' remix collection is available now.
The package marks the 100th release for the mau5trap imprint, and along with the above, includes reworks from Com Truise, Dimension, Lane 8 and ATTLAS.
For fans wondering why Deadmau5's own remix of 'Strobe' doesn't feature, the Canadian tweeted that a second remix release is on the way.
London producer Feed Me (otherwise known as Spor) has shared his full nine-minute remix of Deadmau5's hit track 'Strobe'.
While paying tribute to the original, progressive offering through long emotive sections and recognisable synthwork, Feed Me also ramps up the track with stomping beats, bringing 'Strobe' fully up-to-date for the 2016 dancefloor.
Feed Me's version is part of a four-track 'Strobe' remix package celebrating the 100th release of Deadmau5's mau5trap label. Dropping 23rd September, the EP also features Lane 8, ATTLAS, and Com Truise.
Deadmau5 is set to be the subject of a new theatrical show that is currently being developed for French-themed casino hotel Paris Las Vegas, according to reports.
The show is said to be a replacement for the award-winning Jersey Boys, which ended an eight and a half year run at the venue last Sunday (18th September).
Base Entertainment, the production company behind Jersey Boys, are said to be producing the Deadmau5 theatrical show. However, it isn’t clear whether they will be involved with staging it.
Marshmello played on the final day of Ultra Singapore earlier this month, with the event running on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September.
The fast-rising EDM star premiered a brand new remix of Martin Garrix’s track ‘Oops’ during his set, but now you can now listen to his show in full below.
Deadmau5 has attacked Texan DJ Erik Fink after he was caught ripping off his cube stage set-up at a party in Austin.
The Canadian was first told about the copycat by a fellow Twitter user, and proceeded to lay into the DJ and his imitation stage, saying: "The ripoff was some asshat named Erik Fink."
Before adding, "The thing that pisses me off the most is that he used chauvet LED panels. Get that s**t outta here."
