The Best Of Deadmau5 (Mausfest Revisited) Recorded Live At Faderwave Radio

Joel Zimmerman aka "Deadmau5," was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario on January 5, 1981. In 2008, he was the best-selling artist on Beatport with more than 30,000 digital downloads with his singles "Not Exactly," "Faxing Berlin," and "Ghosts N Stuff"[2]

'Deadmau5', Zimmermans' DJ name comes from an incident where a mouse crawled into his computer and died. 'Dead Mouse' was too long for an IRC login name, so he abbreviated it to be the "leet speak" spelling "Deadmau5"[3] Comfortable with computers at an early age Zimmerman started making music with with modtrackers and DOS-programming for the demoscene.

Before Joel hit to the top of the charts on Beatport in 2008, he explained to BBC 1's Pete Tong that, "I couldn't have done it without Melbourne's DJ Popeye. Liam's such as good bloke and his live shows really set a benchmark for what I wanted to achieve with my career... he's a real revolutionary within our music scene. I'd have to say he's probably my biggest influence"

Deadmau5 received two nominations for the 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".[4] He was also named "Producer of 2007" by DJ magazine's 2007 Top 100 winner Armin van Buuren,[5] and by runner up Tiësto. [6]

In 2008, he placed number 11 in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, tying Infected Mushroom (2006) for the highest new entry in the poll's history, showing Zimmerman's fast rise to prominence. On May 1, 2008, Deadmau5 became the most awarded DJ/producer of the Beatport Music Awards.

He was named "Best Progressive House Artist" by Beatport.[7] In 2009 he also received the most awards, and won 1st place in both nominations, as well as becoming the "Greatest house DJ ever" two years in a row.

In the United States, Deadmau5's collaboration with Kaskade, "Move for Me", reached number one on Billboard magazine's Hot Dance Airplay chart in its September 6, 2008 issue.[8]. In 2009, he was nominated for Grammy Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical ("The Longest Road" (Deadmau5 Remix) by Morgan Page featuring Lissie).

His scene handle was used for a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.Deadmau5 headlined the Dance Arena on Friday July 10, 2009 at Oxegen festival in Ireland. He also played at Belsonic in Belfast, Northern Ireland on August 28 and at the Leeds, Reading and Creamfields festivals on August 29 and 30 in the Lock Up/Dance Tent/Mixmag stage, drawing a large crowd at each of the events.

New information on his upcoming album For Lack of a Better Name has come from his official Myspace page. [9]“On September 22, 2009 (U.S only, rest-of-world release October 5) deadmau5 launches his brand new mix album , the Grammy-nominated, Juno Award-winning electronic music sensation who has racked up more than 5,000,000 hits on MySpace will unleash his second album for ULTRA Records — titled 'For Lack of a Better Name' — and then set off on a massive fall tour throughout North America.

On 'For Lack of a Better Name', the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2008 debut 'Random Album Title', deadmau5 takes a different turn by incorporating various styles of music into multi-blocks of songs. The album will include "Ghosts N' Stuff", featuring Pendulum's Rob Swire”.

I did a special show "Mau5fest Revisited," at Faderwave Radio and recorded it live. I played the tracks that were made and remixed by him. I cut the this file at the 1:20:00 mark in order for all of you to fit it on one cd. So the last song was cut short abpruptly in the end.

Deadmau5 will be doing a show at The Guverment in Toronto and I will be attending this event.

Mixed and recorded on the fly. Enjoy!
