Whatever your feelings on albums by Deadmau5, it’s tough to deny the visual spectacle of his live show. Naming the Canadian electronic musician’s Lollapalooza set the best of this year’s festival, SPIN wrote, “even the Muses and Coldplays of the world seem like community theater by comparison.”
How does he do it? POSSIBLE Productions, which designs his custom visuals, has posted a three-minute video that gives an inside glimpse, plus footage from the performances. Watch it via Beatport and prepare yourself for some retina-blasting lights.
Oh, and about those albums? A new Deadmau5 release, The Re-Edits, arrives next week via London label Cubrik Recordings, according to Beatport. The set features his remixes of everyone from British techno icon Carl Cox to Scottish nu-disco upstart Calvin Harris. Check out a six-minute “minimix” from the album below, and find the track list here.
