deadmau5, Canada’s sensational electronic music artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
deadmau5 (pronounced ‘dead mouse’) is the musical project of record producer and DJ Joel Thomas Zimmerman. He was born in Niagara Falls in 1981 and began his musical journey when he got his first keyboard as a Christmas present. By the late 1990s, he was making music with an Impulse Tracker (a multi track digital sound tracker). He kept honing his craft for the next few years and released his debut studio album (Get Scraped) in 2005. While his musical style can be broadly classified as electronic, it’s best described as a blend of progressive house (a subgenre of house music developed in the United Kingdom as a natural progression of American and European house music of the late 1980s) and electro house (a form of house music characterized by a prominent bassline and/or kick drum and a tempo between 125 and 135 beats per minute). He went on to have a stellar career with 8 studio albums, 9 compilation albums, 14 music videos, 6 extended plays, and 33 singles. He’s been nominated for 6 Grammy Awards and he’s won 5 Beatport Music Awards, 4 DJ Awards, and many more.
