Deadmau5, who earlier this week previewed his new orchestral project, has just revealed a little more about the brand new live show we announced in December, which could take his trademark Cube performance showpiece to a whole new level.
Deadmau5 has previewed his forthcoming orchestral project via a live stream featuring numerous re-works of some of his biggest tracks.
Mr. Zimmerman, who earlier this month announced that his new project would be “the most epic thing I’ve ever done with my music” and later confirmed that that would involve a 60-piece orchestra, opened the vaults on Monday night during his Twitch live stream.
Deadmau5 has revealed he is working on an orchestral project for 2018.
Tweeting on 2nd January, he desrcibed the project as "the most epic thing I've ever done with my music."
The initial tweet (found below) was accompanied with a photograph of what appears to be a make-shift mobile workstation, which featured two laptops, Native Instruments’ Komplete and a video game controller.
Following demands for hints on his next project, the mau5trap-boss responded: “Sure, maybe one… an actual 60 piece orchestra.”
There's no doubt that Deadmau5 is somewhat of a controversial figure in dance music – you either love him or hate him – but make no mistake, the Canadian producer is one of the most forwarding-thinking and dedicated producers on the circuit, willing to spend insane amounts of money to further his creative vision either in the studio or on stage.
Deadmau5 has confirmed a new live show will be coming in 2018, during his BBC Radio 1 broadcast on Thursday 30th November.
The Canadian producer and DJ is renowned for his live sets, and specifically the incredible use of technology these involve. His Cube 2.1 endeavour being just one example.
When it comes to online mixes, few do it better than Joel Zimmerman aka deadmau5. So the recent news that the mau5 will be hosting his own podcast in 2018 is real reason to celebrate among his many devotees the world over.
The announcement follows his final BBC Radio 1 episode of the year (and the end of the Radio 1 residency), and while the exact details of the show are as yet to-be-announced, we can already state with some assurance that it’s likely to make for a very special listen.
Deadmau5 finished his BBC Radio 1 Residency series last month (Thursday 2nd November).
Now, the mau5trap boss has shared a 22-hour playlist of the music he played during his 12-month residency. You can listen to it below.
The whopping 206 track playlist includes material from Pryda, Boards of Canada, Midland, Oneohtrix Point Never, Regal, Slam, Todd Terje and many more.
Music production can be a difficult and complex task at the best of times, and even those at the top of the tree get frustrated sometimes. Deadmau5 is one such individual.
The EDM superstar is renowned for being one of his genre’s most technically accomplished producers, so it’s particularly refreshing to hear the Mau5trap owner admit that he, much like the rest of us, is often bogged down with frustrations when he’s trying to be at his most creative.
Deadmau5 is enjoying quite an end to 2017. Not content with collaborating with fledgling R&B producers or raising money for children’s hospitals, the Canadian superstar is now adopting his Testpilot show for a special New Year show.
Going down at Brooklyn nightclub Depot 52, the event will see the mau5 billed on the same line-up as Dennis Ferrer and Tensnake, two DJs he’s perhaps not as familiar with as his EDM peers.
Picture this: one minute you’re BoMason, an R&B producer of little renown who makes beats with your brother. The next, you’re rubbing shoulders with deadmau5, a bonafide superstar who’ll be producing your debut album. Let us fill in the gaps for you if we may...
