Joel Zimmerman doesn’t like being called a DJ. The dance music phenomenon from Toronto, better known as deadmau5, rolls his eyes at the description which he sees as a hopelessly outdated way of describing what he does. His sets are closer to live performances as he assembles tracks on the fly using cutting edge computer technology including software that he’s helped to write himself. “There are no CDs involved,” he explains. “It’s a technological orgy up there and I try and keep it more my music than anyone else’s. If people come out to see deadmau5 I want them to hear deadmau5 music.”
Now firmly established as one of the most innovative and popular electronic live acts globally, Deadmau5 has had an outstanding year. His driving foresight is constantly pushing the technological boundaries of his stage show. In May 2010 he unveiled the visual orgy of the cube stage and his highly anticipated L.E.D ‘mau5ehead’. The year climaxed with a 17,000 capacity sell out show at London’s Earls Court. He is the first ever electronic artist to headline the legendary venue. Additionally the dancefloor icon’s multi award winning albums have seen him achieve that rare balance, appealing to both the clubbing cognoscenti and musical masses.
His sound transcends various genres of music, flirting with techno and minimal whilst hinting at tech house, trance and electro and the brand deadmau5 is fast becoming recognized worldwide. His Mau5trap label has sold over 50,000 units on Beatport in 2008, with over 110 licenses, 3 game syncs and 12 exclusives. ‘Not Exactly’ hit the Beatport top spot for six weeks, and still retains its status at the biggest ever selling release on the site, whilst his productions have hit the Beatport number 1 on no less than 14 occasions.
Excision is the alias of Jeff Abel, a dubstep DJ and music producer from British Columbia, Canada. He frequently works with fellow Canadian dubstep producers Datsik and Downlink.
As one of the first dubstep producers and DJs in North America, he has played a significant role in the genre’s growth in popularity, and also the development of a more aggressive approach to dubstep production
Jon Gooch obtained his name from one of the first set of samples he collected, entitled ‘Spore Tactics’, and a favorite piece of artwork by a friend, Karl Kwasny. However, he soon dropped the “e” from the word to balance the arrangement of letters when displayed in a graffiti style. After a school friend introduced Jon to the world of Drum & Bass he began experimenting with software to create his own music
Spor’s electro house side project, Feed Me, has also been rather successful. A two track EP has been released under Deadmau5’s label, mau5trap, along with a track on Noisia’s label as well. He released a second EP under mau5trap on December 25, 2010, titled Feed Me’s Big Adventure. It features eight new tracks including both electro house and dubstep. His newly released third EP of four tracks called To the Stars has been available to the public since June 3, 2011.
Atlanta based and internationally known, Le Castle Vania, commonly known as Dylan Eiland, quickly escaped the local trappings of his hometown in Georgia to play music around the world. Atlanta’s burgeoning music scene allowed him to develop his passion for music and nightlife, and he soon gained notoriety with his riotous DJ sets and penchant for production, which made him a household name in the dirty and distorted, indie-electro scene.
His signature sound blends grinding disco punk with strong electronic beats and catchy synth leads, resulting in banging electro music that is dark and dirty but somehow equally uplifting and dancey. New mixes to check out include Tigertron, an original work off of his first non-remix release, “Troubletron EP,” and remixes of “Come Out” for 120 days (Vice Records) and “Bombs” for Scanners (Dim Mak Records), which have all received critical appraisal from the indie electro world.
