First Take: Deadmau5 - EMusician

First Take: Deadmau5

Progressive house, techno, and electro are all terms that have been used to describe Deadmau5''s hard-driving brand of electronica. Under that “other” famous mouse head is Joel Zimmerman, a Toronto-based producer who doesn''t stop at creating, mixing, and mastering his music—he manages nearly every aspect of his skyrocketing career, right down to the graphic design of his album covers and stage set. Last fall, at the Bill Graham Civic Center, he commanded a packed house of feverish fans, from his first bumping beats until well into the night.
