I feel the need to say that Deadmau5 is one of my favorite electronic artists tearin’ shit up right now in the dance world! Toronto based Joel Zimmerman is ranked #14 according to TheDJList, and after an awe-inspiring performance last Sunday @ The Showbox in Seattle, there’s little chance I’m the only one who feels the need to gush over this guy.

“Random Album Title”, his first album release, won the 2009 Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year, and in 2008, Beatport recognized Deamau5 as the Best Electro House/Best Progressive House artist of the year.

His latest mixed album, “For Lack of a Better Name” continues to amaze me with each listen and if any of you have seen me DJ within the last 4 months, you have heard plenty of Deadmau5 in my sets!

So this one goes out to Joel Zimmerman, thanks for everything you’ve put into your music. It is an incredible gift.

Here are a few songs from the man himself, enjoy.



Much love,


..And Justice For All
