While Joel Zimmerman was born in 1981, Deadmau5 was created in 2005. According to an interview he gave to La X 103.9 FM Medellin, he chose his name because he thought nobody would ever register the domain name "deadmau5", at least not with the 5 on it, and, because it was very original. In 2006 he became Producer of the Year, he also became the most selling artist on Beatport with more than 30,000 sales only on Beatport with his singles "Not Exactly" and "Faxing Berlin".

Deadmau5 recieved two nominations for a Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2008 for a track with Billy Newton-Davis and Melleefresh. He did not win an award for Melleefresh's "After Hours" song, but he won the award for Newton-Davis' "All U Ever Want". On May 1st 2008, Deadmau5 became the most awarded deejay/producer/remixer of the Beatport Music Awards. He was named "Most influential, forward-thinking and relevant person" by Beatport.

So yeah, if you must know, it was Waveform that helped me find out about Deadmau5 (Through looking for the Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger remix that he did). Amazing stuffs.

Sometimes things get yeah...

[Dear god this thread keeps haunting me]
This is the hook <3

I love deadmaus. Used to digi-mix his tracks on the radio all the time with electro/house
Its further proof that I really look too deep into the underground to find those amazing white lables that I COMPLETELY ignore whats going on in the mainstream.

I mean, seriously, how the ******** did I miss THIS guy?

the only song i like by him is his longest road remix, but his butchering of Finished Symphony makes me hate him.

So now we are at equilibrium.

I first heard of Deadmau5 from, as you already said from the opening post; In Search Of Sunrise 6: Ibiza with the Song Arguru, then I seen some albums by him at the local CD store, so I purchased his latest album; For Lack Of A Better Name.
