Deadmau5, his name may conjure up images of a lifeless rodent, but this Canadian born self confessed techno geek punches like a Heavyweight. Having had a meteoric rise, he has gone from near obscurity to becoming one of the most in demand producers on the face of the planet and an innovative electronic live performer.
He performs using music production software, Ableton, and controls this with a Lemur. No not the animal but a futuristic music controller. And of course, not forgetting the giant tailor made Mau5head.
Deadmau5’s has a new compilation album, For Lack Of A Better Name, this isn’t his Artist album, this is more a collection of random works that he’s produced individually. A few have been out previously, but there are some new surprises in there as well. The tracks are segued together, so in a way reflect his current live show. 2009 sees Deadmau5 continuing to break boundaries in the music world. The concept of his live show reflects the changing face of dance music.
Released 5th October 2009.
