Life and career
Joel Thomas Zimmerman (born January 5, 1981), known professionally as deadmau5 (pronounced "deadmouse"), is a Canadian progressive house music producer and performer from Toronto, Ontario.
Zimmerman produces a variety of styles within the house genre and sometimes other forms of electronic music. His tracks have been included in numerous compilation albums such as the 2007 ‘In Search of Sunrise 6: Ibiza’ CD. The February 2008 issue of ‘Mixmag's music magazine included a free CD which was titled ‘MixMag Presents: The Hottest New Name In Dance! DEADMAU5 Tech-Trance-Electro-Madness’, mixed by Zimmerman. Tracks have also been included and presented on Armin van Buuren's ‘A State of Trance’ radio show. His debut album, ‘Get Scraped’, was released in 2005, followed by others in the next few years. Today, deadmau5 is one of the highest paid electronic artists in the world. He has received six Grammy nominations for his work.
As well as his own solo releases, Zimmerman has worked alongside other DJs and producers, such as Kaskade, MC Flipside, Rob Swire of Knife Party and Pendulum, Wolfgang Gartner, and on a number of releases, he has partnered with Melleefresh. An early 12" single produced on vinyl titled "I Don't Want No Other" was released by Joel Zimmerman and Derek Caesar under the group name "Dred and Karma". The 2006 album titled ‘deadmau5 Circa 1998–2002’ was released using the alias "Halcyon441". He has also collaborated with Steve Duda under the alias, "BSOD", as well as "WTF?" including Duda, Tommy Lee, and DJ Aero.
In 2007, Zimmerman began his own record label, mau5trap, which, along with Ultra Records and Ministry of Sound, released the 2008 album ‘Random Album Title’, which saw the collaboration of Zimmerman and Chicago producer Kaskade with "I Remember". ‘Random Album Title’, saw a digital release in September 2008 via Ultra Records in the United States and Ministry of Sound in the United Kingdom and Europe. Physical copies of the album were released in November 2008.
In the United States, Zimmerman's collaboration with Kaskade, "Move for Me", reached number one on ‘Billboard’ magazine's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart in its September 6, 2008 issue.Since then, Zimmerman has seen two more tracks, also collaborations ("I Remember" with Kaskade & "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" with Rob Swire), reach number one on ‘Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, making him the only Canadian to have three number-one tracks on that chart. He is also the sixth Canadian to top that chart, following Deborah Cox, Nelly Furtado, Dragonette, Justin Bieber, and The Weeknd, each with one apiece.
On September 22, 2009, Ultra Records released his album ‘For Lack of a Better Name’ in the United States, and October 5 internationally. On a subsequent tour in the fall of 2009, Zimmerman's performances were recorded and made available for sale immediately following the concerts on USB wristband flash drives. ‘For Lack of a Better Name’ includes two of Zimmerman's most popular songs, "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" (featuring Rob Swire) and "Strobe".
MTV named Zimmerman as the house DJ for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and MTV PUSH artist of the week on August 16, 2010. He expressed gratitude towards Lady Gaga and David Guetta for bringing dance into the pop music scene and paving the way for him to the mainstream. At the awards, Zimmerman performed with Jason Derulo and Travie McCoy. His song "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" had been featured on the soundtrack for the MTV reality series ‘Jersey Shore’ earlier.
His fifth studio album, titled ‘4×4=12’, was released on December 6, 2010 in the United Kingdom and December 7, 2010 in the United States.
